On Sunday 14th of October 2018,
Marconi Clay Target Club held its annual Marconi Marathon shoot, in conjunction with the Marconi 400 Teams Event.
We had a great turnout for the event despite the rainy and windy weather, 11 squads were ready to take to the layouts and battle it out over 100 Targets.
The weather was somewhat unusual, although not entirely out of character for October. We saw rainy skies, with little to no sun breaking through.
After a great day of shooting Marconi CTC Member Adam McCarthy emerged from a shoot-off with Charlie Sherry to take overall.
Adam walked away with $500 cash, 250 Falcon Shells, a Sash and his name on the Honour Board for 2018. Congratulations to Adam McCarthy.
Charlie Sherry goes home with $200 cash and a winners Sash for his outstanding win in AA Grade.
It was absolutely fantastic to see so much red on the scoreboard.
A big round of applause goes out to all our place getters. Great shooting today!
We would also like to congratulate Chloe Alho on taking out the Ladies with her very first Sash, the first of many we are sure! Keep up the great shooting Chloe.
We must thank Peter Phillpott, President and Shoot Marshall, for running the day's shoot like clockwork as always.
Thanks must always go out to Pam Trew, Sharon Phillpott, Maria Simon and Frank Auditore for all their assistance in the office on the day.
To our beloved Tony for his delicious food keeping shooters nourished and alert.
A special thanks to Angelo Piazza and Sharon Phillpott for their tireless efforts to make the event happen smoothly.
