We have a few of our Eastern Goldfields Clay Target Club Members in Wagga Wagga at the moment competing in the World Titles. Here is a report from Wagga from our good mate Marty.
"Royce Normington is one of three shooters to score 299/300 in the first event at the world title in Wagga NSW. One competitor got the possible 300. The event was held in 60 km/hr winds and rain was so bad today. Over 800 competitors are at the event and Royce is team captain for WA."
"Royce shot 296/300 today currently sitting equal second at 595/600 one guy is 596/600. Still got another 100 targets to go worth 300 points. 750 shooters. Great effort. Richard and I are in same squad just finished 45 minutes ago. Let u know results tomoz"
Early Tuesday Report:
"Royce Normington finished second in world champ qualifying 1 behind leader. Out of 740 odd shooters. Now has to shoot another 50 targets worth 150 points. 50k prizemoney up for grabs over the champs."
Lunchtime Tuesday Report:
"Royce finished equal second with 2 guys equal first 1 point ahead . So 744/750 points. Or 249/250 targets. Now just shot another 50 targets and will shootoff for third in world champs.
