A large contingent of the State’s best shooters were in Albany at the weekend for a highly successful January Carnival hosted by the Albany Clay Target Club.

Nearly 80 competitors from around WA, including Geraldton, Kalgoorlie-Boulder and Leonora, took part in the annual trap event.

Perth youngster William Frenzi-Lizzi showed he had a bright future in the sport at a higher level and was named the overall high gun winner.
