The December leg of Tarbert Gun Club winter league team shoot was held on Sunday December 3.

It was a full house again – 11 teams of five competitors to a team. The weather was perfect, with no wind or sun and not too cold, leading to some cracking scoring.

Bob McColl was on top form and never missed a target all day. He tied with John Paton in the down the line competition and scored a maximum on the sporting set up.

Hot on Bob’s heels were Brian Baird, Angus Peden and Archie Currie, all of whom had to call on their second barrel once, thus dropping a point.

Impressing are the female shooters, and Lynn MacDonald is captain of one of the teams and in amongst the top shots. Jennifer Campbell was in the top team of the day, while first-time shooter Courtney Smith helped her squad into second place.
