2016 Wyanna Partnership Ladies Day


Ladies Set The Course
On Sunday 20th November, Dubbo Field and Game presented the Wyanna Partnership Shoot.
The Wyanna Partnership is made up from Ken & Paula Purvis along with Tony & Chris Monk.
The weather changed from overcast and windy to blue skies and hot. Shooters appreciated the shade tent set up at the beginning of the 2nd range with ice cold bottles of water supplied.
A challenge had been set with the ladies taking to setting the range whilst the men took over the kitchen.
Mel Phillips and Paula Purvis took on the challenge of planning the range to include an arrangement of targets. With one station in particular, challenging even the seasoned shooters. From everything from low flying ducks, hidden rabbits and a simm pair of high flyers that brought quite a few undone.
With Jenny Rushton, Roy Butler helping with setup, Tony Monk mowing the way, the range was ready for nearly 50 shooters on Sunday. Being harvest time, numbers were down but that didn’t stop everyone from enjoying themselves.
Lunch was organised by Chris Everett & Stephen Smith along with their band of helpers. From oysters, salads and some pretty impressive desserts.
Theme for the day was “With a Dash of Pink” to co-inside with the ladies wanting to support the McGrath Foundation. Everyone was asked to wear a dash of pink with those who didn’t being fined a gold coin donation. Along with a 100 club and “Fines” jar (for swearing, slamming of shells and any other thing we could think of the day), Dubbo Field and Game Wyanna Shoot donated $290 to the McGrath Foundation.
