SHOOTING: Gympie shooter Bill Stolberg was spot-on last weekend when he won the A-grade and veterans' high gun championships at the Gympie Clay Target Club's annual Gold Rush Shoot.

Fifty-two competitors on Saturday and 28 competitors on Sunday took aim for a shot at several shooting titles at the competition.

Club secretary Glen Durre said the new environmentally friendly clay targets used were an improvement and provided a new level of consistency.

"There were 47 possible scores on the scoreboard for the weekend, and this would be attributed to the new clay targets thrown and the quality of target thrown from the Laporte traps," he said.

"You only had to look at the scores to see how good they are."

Visitors came from Brisbane, Redcliffe, Caboolture, the Sunshine Coast, Kingaroy, Central Burnett, Maryborough, Bundaberg and Chinchilla to take part and Durre said recent upgrades to the facilities received rave reviews from these competitors.

"Most shooters were wrapped with the facilities," Durre said.

The upgrades include wheelchair access and new layouts. The club shoots at the Banks Pocket Rd range from 10.30am every second Sunday of each month and practise is held every second Saturday of the month from 1-3pm. Anyone interested can join at practise or call Durre on 5482 5354.
