Warwick Clay Target Club keen to attract newcomers
THE Warwick Clay Target Club competes on the first Sunday of each month at its range in Rosenthal Rd.
Club president David Cox said the club had 50 members and attracted between 40 and 80 shooters to events.
"We have down the line trap shooting on the first Sunday of each month and Olympic trap on the last Saturday of each month,” he said.
The club held its 136th birthday shoot earlier this year.
It was originally called the Warwick Gun Club and shooting has been on the current site for around half a century.
In between Warwick shoots, club members travel to shoots on set days each month at Ballandean, Texas, Koreelah, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast.
In mid-October, five Warwick members shot at Ballandean and others made the trip to a shoot at Yamba.
The Warwick club has members from ages 11and 12 to a couple in their 80s.
Prospective members who are not regular shooters will be assisted by experienced members.
