Clay Target Shooting Ride

Clay Target Club members help our members tried to
          hit a target.
There was an extra large turn-out of members for the ride with well over 30 bikes at the start. We meandered to Mt Barker via Yellanup Rd (Albany side of the Porongurups), before arriving at the Bakery in Mt Barker.

The Bakery, its become an institution for us.
From here we rode along the Porongurups Road, nice ride going in this direction with the Stirlings on the left, and thereís some nice bends as well.

Arriving at the Clay Target Club.
Then along Chester Pass Road towards Bakerís Junction the Clay Target Rifle Club is on the right. Itís a bit hard to find, so there were bikes going in every direction, even down the gravel road past  the Club.

In the end everyone turned up. The Clay Target Club had been busy catering for their sponsors in the morning which ran over time. But as they had food left from their BBQ we eventually benefitted by having some of the left-overs as well as our sausages which went down well too.

Colin, Max and Dave giving Ronnie a few tips.
Then it was time to have a go at clay target shooting. It's harder that you think, but a lot of our members had a go with the help of clay target club members, including Colin Hinkley and Dave Webb, who were very helpful.

Before long it was time to head home. Many thanks to Colin Hinkley who organised the day and for the hospitality of the Club.
