Kent keeps hold of golden touch

Atotal of 70 shooters descended on Burrungule Park in near perfect autumnal weather conditions recently.

They tackled targets set by Rolf Bugden and his hard working crew of volunteers for this month’s event sponsored by Collins Court Butchers, Beljon Pastoral and BOC Gases.

This event was also the second leg of the Lake Bonney Sporting Clays/Burrungule Park Inter club challenge.

Burrungule Park shooters held a seven-target advantage after the first leg at Lake Bonney the previous week and managed to extend their lead to retain the Inter Club Challenge trophy, largely thanks to Jeremy Kent.

Kent continued his rich vein of form to claim the Gambier Shooting Supplies High Gun scoring 71/75 targets.

The Millicent sporting clays shooter has been in excellent form of late with a third place 181/200 in the Australian Grand Prix event at Geelong in March.

In April he managed to go one better by finishing runner up to Robert Hall at the Oceania event held in Shepparton scoring 191/200.

Both these events are FITASC sanctioned events and as such Kent has qualified for Australian team selection and will represent his country at the 44th World Sporting Championships at Orvieto, Italy in July.

No one could catch him at Burrungule Park, while the AA grade winner was Gavin Dyson, who held off Danny Bellinger and Daniel Ashby.

Taking out the winners from A grade was Wayne Gurney and the sole winner of B grade was Tim Lloyd.

Chris Wright, Leigh Dunn and Greg Kessagian battled out the seniors and Rolf Bugden took out the veteran’s grade.

The ladies also put on a good show with Tasha Bellinger taking out first, Bec Kober second and Charlotte Devaud third.

In sub juniors Kain Ashby scored the win ahead of Jack Dyson and Shakielle Vonstanke.

Declan Wright showed good form in his win in the juniors from Ben Hastings.

The club will now plan for their upcoming Limestone Coast Sporting 150 to be held this weekend.

Saturday will be held at Burrungule Park, while Sunday’s action is at Lake Bonney Sporting Clays.
