SHOOTERS PREPARE FOR NATIONAL CARNIVAL IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

More than 400 shotgunning enthusiasts will converge on Kingston SE next weekend for

the Field and Game Australia National Carnival.


Over two days the shooters will take aim at more than 60,000 clay targets across three

Australian Simulated Field (ASF) ranges, addressing 150 simulated field targets each in

both open and handicapped events.

 

The FGA National Carnival attracts novice shooters and Australia’s best simulated field

target shooters with ladies, men, juniors and veterans vying for more than $45,000 worth

of prizes.


October 30 and 31 will be an action-packed two days at Kingston Field and Game range

with shooters competing in both open and handicapped events.


Field and Game Australia (FGA) Chief Executive Officer Rod Drew said the weekend is

a fantastic opportunity for Kingston SE to host a showcase of the nation’s best clay

target shooters.


“It’s also a top weekend for visitors to see the variety of targets our shooters need to be

able to hit,” said Mr Drew.


The action will kick off at 8 am each morning.


It is the first time the nation’s biggest clay target shooting event has been held in South

Australia.


“The Kingston FGA branch, Kingston SE Council and local community have undertaken

an incredible amount of work to prepare their range and facilities for this prestigious

event,” said Mr Drew.


“Australian Simulated Field target shooting is the fastest growing shotgunning discipline.


“The event also provides a boost to the local economy with up to 1,000 visitors expected

to be in Kingston for the weekend.”


Major sponsors will have trade displays at the event on both days, showcasing the latest

in shooting sports equipment.
