Two dozen competitors from Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan took part in the three-day Western Canada Skeet Championships at the Lone Pine Clay Target Club northeast of Olds.

Held July 22 – 24, the event saw competitors shoot in the 12 gauge preliminary, doubles, 12 gauge, 20 gauge, 28 gauge and .410 bore categories. It was the first time the local club has hosted westerns.

Bowden's Brad Semaka won the 12 gauge preliminary event, which was held outside the actual championships. He hit 97 of 100 targets for the win.

Kelowna's Greg Burgess won the doubles, hitting 93 out of 100.

Saskatoon's Keith Stead won both the 12 gauge and the 20 gauge events, with 97 and 98 out of 100 scores respectively.

Regina's Kevin Jarocki shot 98 out of 100 targets to win the 28 gauge competition.

Larry Way, also from Regina, won the .410 bore event with a 92 out of 100 score.

Regina's John Dong won the high overall, and Regina's Kevin Jarocki won the high all around.

“It was by far the largest pool of competitors for the tournament since starting it up,” said club member Wade Chipman. “Weather was good for the competition and we saw some great scores.”

He commended volunteers and club members for making the tournament a success.
