Our Christmas Shoot and Presentation Day was proudly sponsored by Santa whilst the course was set by the Committee and Darren and Jan Redman. Unfortunately, due to the Bermagui Country Club being booked out the Saturday night prior to the shoot, we were unable to have our giddy-up dress-up presentation evening (hopefully next year).
Sunday was a fabulous day, with a little quick shower of rain thrown in, but all in all a great day. Darren Redman was first in AA grade with 53, followed by Tony Crome with 48.
Over 70 shooters made the day, coming from all round, including Melissa who was traveling NSW from Tasmania.
Craig Field was first in A grade with 71 followed by Paul King with 70 and Bryan Boon with 69. The course was set of 10 stands, with two rounds of 32 targets. During the course of the rounds, was a Springer that if you missed took you straight out of the Digweed challenge. The majority who hit the target, made it through to the precedented event. The winner of the coveted award went to Michael Platts at 55 meters.
Col Brownlie was first in B grade with 75, Jimmy Drakos was close behind with a score of 74, followed by Michael Platts with 68.
Bobby Duncan went home with a sash for club handicap champion of the year as well as off the gun club champion of the year
Patrick Maher came first in C grade with a score of 72, followed by Patrick Thompson with 71 and Geoff Ingram also with 71.
Jimmy Drakos was named the most valuable club member of 2022.
On stand 4 was a challenging left to right crosser, low to the ground and fast moving. Some people were lucky enough to shoot two targets with one shot.
Stand 7 held a challenging low and slow green target that looked much easier than it actually was, coming from the right and stopping directly in front of the stand; and stand 9 had a nice easy target that came directly towards the stand with plenty of time to shoot.
Unfortunately there were trap problems in the first round but it was soon fixed and back up and running.
In Ladies, Michelle Craig was first with 71, followed by Jesse Kelly with 69 and Melissa Wheatley from Tassie with a score of 68.
In Juniors, Ewan Forsythe finished first with 63 followed by Zack Poucher with 62 and Drew Marshall with 52.
On stand 10 were two right-to-left crossers from our scissor lift, challenging most. Presentations were held after the Digweed challenge, with the most prominent and prestigious award handed out to Mario Magrin with a Life Membership for his many years of dedication to Bermagui Sporting Clays, well deserved.
We had fantastic prizes of hams, turkeys, roast pork, chickens and ducks. A wonderful selection as usual, plus prizes for the novelty shoot of Darren’s doubles. No-one missed out on a prize or gift.
Bermagui Sporting Clays' awesome free lunch was magnificent. Beautiful chicken, ham, salads and plenty of sweets, all thanks to donations from participants and lunch set out by our wonderful lunch committee ladies, Shirl Brady, Elspeth Dunn and Lisa Bedingfield, well done.
A massive thanks to office staff, who were trouble-shooting through the whole day, as Pat our treasurer was out sick. Rob Shaw and all those who helped get that office going, you are awesome.
Thanks to all for attending, participating and supporting our club. Until next year shoot straight and often and, most importantly, enjoy your Christmas!

Ian Macfarlane shot an excellent 80 in C grade taking first place, Neil Poucher came second with 68 whilst Kane Hurford came 3rd with 64. Sunday made good use of the scissor lift on stand 1B with 2 overhead outing targets one going straight and the other peeling to the left. Jan Redman came first in the ladies shoot with 62, followed by Robin Perkins with 56 and Carol Cook with 50. Phil & Shelly Craig did a great job with the prizes from range bags to gunsmithing accessories and ammo to get the new shooters and juniors back next time. Zack Poucher won juniors with an amazing score of 78, Wyatt Hurford came second with 50 whilst Ewan Forsyth was close behind with 49.

It will be set up by Darren Redman and committee members. Until then shoot straight and often.
On Sunday the 25th of September was the Drakos brothers construction 100 target, off the gun shoot. Sponsored by both Drakos bros construction. There were targets flying everywhere over 9 stands, including sim pair midi’s just below the shed on stand 2 heading down hill close together but just not close enough.

Rob Shaw wasn’t far behind with a score of 83, making him the winner of A grade, followed by Mark Gschwend with 79 in second and Mark Corbett in 3rd.

Bob Duncan won B grade with a score of 80 followed by Russel Rowling with 76 and James Drakos with 74. Down at the bottom of the hill at stand 6 was a cheeky little rabbit that may have drunk red bull and grew wings, bouncing high off the ground. Gavin Owens won C grade with 64, Neil Poucher came second with 59 closely followed by David Bedingfield with 58. On stand 9 just below the tower was an outgoing target to your left that challenged you if you didn’t get it early and to the right was a right to left crosser. Michelle Craig came first in the ladies with 69 with Penny White coming second with 59 and Olga Packer in 3rd with 51. Behind the top shed at stand one was 2 right to left crossers but both being completely different targets with one coming from infront working its way around to your left with the other starting just to your left but with the trap out of sight. Montana won the juniors with a solid 66, followed by Ewan Forsyth with 38. At the end of the day we didn’t win Coomagui losing by a measly 12 points. The Coomagui Cup will rightfully be back home to its Sacred ground of Bermagui Sporting Clays in 2023. MARK OUR WORDS!! Thanks to all who contributed our free lunch, to the hard working office staff & fabulous lunch ladies. See you next round!
On Sunday the 28th of August was the Bermagui Welding Big Bird Challenge sponsored by the one and only Nev & Shirl Brady of Bermagui welding . Sunday was a fine and 22° kind of day with a little wind in the afternoon. Craig Field won the big bird challenge shooting 13 out of 20, Craig Field also took out A Grade with a brilliant score of 83, followed by Rob Shaw with 76, beating Barry Dunn due to a count back. Stand 4‘s big bird challenge tested everyone’s eyes as well as their long distance shooting ability with a green target leaving the trap roughly 100 meters down the track opposite the shed. It was partnered with a cheeky rabbit in front of the stand and an outgoing target to the left. Bob Duncan won B grade with a solid 79, Chris O’Dea came second with 74 closely followed by Patrick Jubb with 73. Stand 2 held a challenging left to right crosser paired with an outgoing target to your right in the morning and to your left in the afternoon. The big bird target had to be shot like an old western quick draw before it was out of sight. Peter Tomasi won C grade with 66 followed by Ian Armstrong with 63 and Geoff Ingram with 61. Thank you to the girls on the barbecue who did a brilliant job cooking our FREE lunch and Thank you to everyone that brought In salads, slices, cakes and snacks. Carol Cook won the ladies with 51, Jesse Kelly came second with 45 and Sally Armstrong was 3rd with 40. Stand 1’s big bird was far out and fast moving from right to left making it hard to hit, the high up springer and the outgoing target by your side made it a little easier to earn some points. Ewan Forsyth may have been our only junior shooter but nonetheless he still shot a solid 41 winning juniors. Thank you to everyone in the office and in the committee for keeping the club going smoothly, thank you to Nev Brady and everyone involved in setting up. Sunday the 18 of September will be the 1st half of the Coomagui cup held at Cooma sporting clays. It would be great to see all our bermi members there! Our next shoot will be the 2nd half of the Coomagui cup and will be held on Sunday the 24th of September and it would be also great to see all our bermi members there as well, so we can bring back the trophy that is rightfully ours!
On Sunday the 24th of July was the 75 target Neil Rouse Memorial shoot followed by a beautiful FREE lunch and annual AGM. The shoot was kindly sponsored by Pat and Tatia Jubb and set up by Pat Jubb, Nev Brady and Roger Budd. There were 8 creative stands moving to different positions after each round.
Craig Hurst was the lucky slab raffle winner while Patrick Thompson shot for the money but unfortunately missed the overhead pair on the second stand.
Stand one held an interesting rabbit from left to right just on the top side of the main shed, proving difficult even for the best of shooters.
Jarrod Ringland shot an impressive 77 taking first place in A Grade, followed by Rob Shaw with 70 and Mark Corbett with 65.
Stand 4 was an interesting battue just to the right of the stand with three completely different angles of perception.
Michael Platts won B grade with a solid 81, Nev Brady also scored 81 but finished second due to a count back, and Chris O’Dea was third with 77.
Stand 6 was a classic springing teal target just opposite the pink container, where timing was crucial to shoot it at its highest point.
Patrick Thompson won C grade with a great 82 followed by Peter Tomasi with 79 and Roger Budd with 76.
Stand 7 held a close-quarters right to left crosser as well as a left to right looper proving rather difficult in a sim pair.
Penny White shot an impressive 82 followed by Sally Armstrong with 79 and Wendy Crouch with 76.
All the beautiful prizes were supplied by Bermagui Fresh Food Emporium.
On Sunday the 26th of June the Bermagui Bait and Tackle 100-target shoot was held, set up by Jon Theobold, Richard Watkins, David Bedingfield and Patrick Thompson, and with thanks also to Roger Budd for assisting where he could, cleaning the toilets, office and barbecue area as well as preparing the fire to keep us warm on a cold winter's day.
There was a good range of incoming, outgoing, long, looping and bouncing targets of all different colours and sizes. Unfortunately there were unforeseen teething problems on stand 5 in the first round but shortly after it was up and running with another target.
Craig Field won A grade with a brilliant 81, whilst Jarrod Ringland was second with 78, closely followed by Jordan Cambell-Brown with 76.
Stand one held a challenging looper. Being green, it blended in brilliantly with the treetops; nonetheless, there were still plenty of them being shot out of the sky. It was paired with a trusty rabbit skipping across in front of the stand.
Adam Shiels rightfully took first place with a solid 75 in B grade, Jimmy Drakos shot 70 targets taking second place and Mark Coleman took 3rd place with 68.
Stand 6 showcased two outgoing crossers on opposite sides; the sim pair offered a small opportunity for a 2 for 1 if your timing was on point. But no-one was lucky enough to pull it off.
Glenn Schofield won C grade with 64 targets, while Zip Summerell and Rohan Chapman-Davies were on each other's tails all day, both scoring 57, taking second and third place.
Stand 5 held a promising incomer but unfortunately early in the first round the trap broke down. Luckily, the set-up crew was quick to fix it and replaced it with a quick crosser from left to right. After lunch it transformed into an outgoing target just to your right, and that stand also held a cheeky little rabbit bouncing just below the ledge making it challenging at times.
Jesse Kelly was the only shooter in the Ladies' category but she still shot a good 36 taking home a brilliant prize thanks to our amazing sponsor at Bermagui Bait and Tackle.
Wyatt Hurford won juniors shooting at his best, as usual, with 40; Ewan Forsyth shot a good 33; and AJ Burhop had a go at sporting clays for the first time and shot 5 in two round. It was great to have you at the club AJ, and it it would be great to see you again.
Stand 7 was the last stand of the day, and boy, was it a great stand with a crosser appearing out of the trees to your left as well as an outgoing looper also to your left. It had more side than face, making it challenging to shoot.
Thank you to Shirl Brady and Lisa Bedingfield for running the kitchen, feeding everyone and keeping them happy with a free lunch, cakes, and snacks.
Patrick Thompson won the slab raffle, drawing his own ticket. Adam Shiels shot for the money but left it with the club while Ewan Forsyth won a $50 voucher for Bermagui Country Club. Pat Jubb, Rob Shaw and Jon Theobold kept the office running smoothly as usual so thank you for your hard work.

A big thankyou this month goes out to Bruce Arthurson from Classic Racing and Performance Engineering and Ken (Bucko) Buckley from South Durras Holiday Park for jointly sponsoring our biggest shoot of the year, the Bermagui Sporting Clays, SxS and U/O Bush Challenge.
Bucko was unfortunately unable to attend the shoot due to a few health issues, but I can assure anyone who is seeking a few relaxing days away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day living that they should look no further than the South Durras Holiday Park. Ken and his staff go out of their way to make sure your stay is both relaxing and enjoyable. Situated just north of Batemans Bay, off the Princess Highway, South Durras Holiday Park is certainly a holiday destination to put on your 'must do' list.
Tony Crome, Mark Gschwend and Adam Shiels set up 2 top courses (tough), with a lot of new target flights and variations, but unfortunately due to the filthy weather predictions, numbers were down from previous years.
On what turned out to be a beautiful sunny spring day with not a cloud in the sky nor breath of wind, Mark Corbett (SxS) and Mark Gschwend (U/O) with some great individual shooting deservedly took away the 2 sashes that were on offer. Well shot fellas.
A big thankyou this month goes to our skeleton office staff, Patrick, Rob and Chris, who overcame a lot of teething problems with the new computer system to have us all out and shooting on time; to our ladies' committee who once again supplied the goods for our FREE luncheons (the 'ring Shirl' concept worked a treat ), to our wonderful BBQ ladies, Shirl and Elspeth, and last but by no means least, our set-up and pack-up crews. And let’s not forget James and Jimmy Drakos for the fresh fish; thanks fellas.
Our next shoot will be Grumpy’s Challenge on the 27th of March, which will be preceded by a working bee on Saturday, March 26. (Great idea, put forward by Shelley Craig.) There’s lots of work that needs to be done around the club, including getting the tower trap back in place, trap and course maintenance, shed cleaning and a host of other odd jobs. So bring some muscle and a smile, and maybe a tent for a sleepover, weather permitting, and let’s make a weekend of it. Hopefully our resident publicity officer Patty Thompson will be back reporting next month.
Until next time, shoot straight and often!!
