Club on target: Members travel across Wide Bay
BIGGENDEN Pistol Club is still growing strong and maintaining its membership of 50.
Secretary Tony Elliott said the club attracted members from Tin Can Bay, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Childers and Gin Gin.
Members meet twice monthly and recently introduced a Tuesday shoot which attracted eight to 10 shooters.
“This is another opportunity for people to get a shoot in if they are working on a weekend,” Elliot said.
Smoke haze and warm conditions didn’t deter anyone from Sunday’s shoot.
