Guns at the ready, ladies

Terang’s Sophie Molan encourages women across the district to head along to a Ladies Come and Try Day at the Noorat Gun Club this weekend.

LADIES from across the region are invited to a ladies clay shooting come and try day at the Noorat Gun Club.

The free day will be a chance for new and novice shooters to experience the sport, according to club secretary and treasurer Gary Hayden.

“You will be coached and supervised by experienced female members of the club who are keen to make sure your time with us is enjoyable and rewarding,” he said.

“Clay target shooting is a true family sport where all can participate, meet new friends and have fun together.

“To participate, you must be over the age of 12 years.”

Mr Hayden said a firearms licence is not required to take part in the free day, with guns and cartridges supplied.

He said the sport is ideal for women of all ages.

“Unlike many other sports, there are very few physical limitations to participating,” Mr Hayden said.

“Clay target shooting is addictive, fun and challenging.

“Once you attend just one shoot you will realise what you have been missing – a great sport and lots of fun.”

Terang’s Sophie Molan can attest to the positives of the sport.

“I started off last year and had a break when I did motocross and just started back,” she said.

“I love the social side of it.”

Sophie said she would recommend clay target shooting to girls and women of all ages.

“It’s a boy dominated sport, it will be great to get more girls involved,” she said.

The Noorat Gun Club – which has more than 80 members from across the district – ladies come and try day will be held on Sunday, September 24 from 11am.
