More than 30,000 clay targets will be shot over the next three days at the Albany Clay Target Club in one of the State’s major events.

Shooters from across WA will descend on the club for three days of competition, which begins Friday and finishes on Sunday.

Some of the State’s top clay target shooters will be at the event, which is set to be held in ideal conditions.

During the weekend, the 30,000 clay targets will be thrown at speeds over 70km/h to test the skills of the shooters who will use shotguns to shoot the targets in the air.

Because of interstate travel restrictions, organisers are hoping for a large turnout.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the sport to come out and have a look,” club president Ollie McPartland said.

The club is on the first left-hand turn on Simpson Road, 2km north of Bakers Junction, on Chester Pass Road.
