Defending champions Craig Simpson and Wendy McMaster will once again look for top honors at the Rangers Gun Club shoot scheduled for Sunday, May 6e with a shotgun start at 10am at the True Juice Complex in Bog Walk, St. Catherine.

The venue is considered a happy hunting ground for the two defending champions. It is the venue where Simpson achieved his highest score in the sport (97 out of 100) and where McMaster dethroned her daughter and two-time winner Aliana to take the top spot.

The battle for top honors will be fierce as some of the Jamaica Skeet Club’s best shooters will be on the range. They include nine-time National Shotgun Champion Ian Banks, six-time National Shotgun Champion Shaun Barnes, four-time National Shotgun Champion Christian Sasso, other National Shotgun Champions such as Chad Ziadie, his father Geoffrey Ziadie, Ray McMaster, Andrew Hopwood, Nicholas Benjamin and young David Wong and former winner Nicholas Chen.

On the female side, this includes two-time winner Aliana McMaster and sister Leanne, Renee Rickhi who is part of the Jamaica Rifle Association’s Alpha Angels lady shooters, Marguerite Harris and granddaughter Lori-Ann Harris, among others.

Shooters in various classes from A – E, Hunters or Beginners, Juniors, Sub-Juniors and Ladies will compete hard to win their class and in some cases progress to higher and more challenging classes. The event includes a driving course with eighteen stations.

The shooters face targets of various types, including real pairs (birds launched at the same time), rabbits (birds released on the ground), birds in the air released at different speeds and directions, as well as single targets that are released over gently flowing streams on the ground. the lush green course.

The Rangers Gun Club expects another large field of approximately one hundred and fifty shooters to conquer the extensive riding course for a day of individual and team competition with local gun clubs in attendance. For the third year in a row, four clubs will compete for that trophy. The competing clubs are Driftwood Gun Club, Rangers Gun Club, Trelawny Gun Club and defending champions – the Jamaica Gun Club.

Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Food for the Poor organization.

The title sponsor for the Rangers Gun Club Sporting Clays shoot is Sterling Asset Management, while Worthy Park Select, National and STLSOLAR are the next level sponsors.

The club has a rich history of young businessmen and a number of their shooting-loving fathers came together in the mid-1980s to form the Rangers Gun Club at their Salt Gully base in St Catherine. They initially focused on bird shooting and then moved on to sporting clays, which is currently the most popular form of the sport.
