Celebrations for Powell's double

MEMBERS of the Gympie Smallbore Rifle and Silhouette Club take particular delight in celebrating the achievements of its many eager members.

And that’s precisely what happened at the Victory Hotel at the weekend as the club conducted championship presentations.

Club captain and vice president Ed Powell was among the winners, taking out a double win in the Sihouette Competition.

Powell collected two impressive looking trophies for the most 39s and 40s, capping off a season of consistent form on the range.

The club’s new executive was also on hand to oversee proceedings, keen to help propel the club on to bigger and better things over the coming year.

The new executive consists of Ed Powell (captain, vice president), Norm Pratt (president), Roger Marrington (secretary) and Shirley Marrington (treasurer).

Conjecture remains over who will receive the honour of club champion and a special meeting was held at the club last night to sort the matter out.

Powell said the club would release all results following the meeting’s outcome.

Meanwhile, a new year is beckoning for the club and its many juniors are looking to step up and continue to assert themselves against their older and more experienced opponents.
