Hedland on target in Perth

Philip MurrayNorth West Telegraph

Hedland shooters held their own and proved to WA they are not to be messed with.

Over the recent Easter long weekend, seven of Hedland Sporting Shooters Club’s members made the long trek to Perth to compete in the State Cowboy Lever Action Silhouette Championships.

Perth weather was perfect for the competition turning in mainly windless days at a balmy 24C every day.

Faced with formidable competition from the rest of the State, Hedland shooters immediately applied the pressure and made their presence known.

Rifle Cartridge Class was first up and Hedland shooters made a clean sweep of B-grade and also took out second and third in A-grade.

Pistol class was nearly repeated with Hedland taking out a third in AA-grade and first and second in A-grade. In the small-bore event, Pete Nicholls and Warren Goodfield took out gold in AA and B-grades, respectively.
