Clay target shooting is one of the oldest continuous sports of the modern Olympics and enjoyed by 13,000 members around Australia.
There are 22 established registered clubs in South Australia, supported by about 1300 registered competitors.
An opportunity now exists to capture the interests of the Jamestown community as well as districts as far away as Clare, Burra, Peterborough and Booleroo Centre.
To capture the enthusiasm, an inaugural committee has been established, discussions held with the Jamestown Racing Club, the Northern Areas Council, and approval been given to lay the foundations for the construction of a clay target club, and so the Elsewhere Clay Target Club becomes a reality.
Why Elsewhere? Because it is always fine! Anyone who listens to the weather reports will agree they say “and it will be fine elsewhere”. The inaugural Open Day will be on Saturday, March 16, as a ‘Come and Try’ day where people are invited to experience a day on the range.
The first competition for ACTA-registered competitors will be 100 targets double barrel on Easter Sunday.
