CFA District 17 will host its annual clay target shooting day at Natimuk and District Field and Game Club on Sunday.

District 17 operations manager Dale Russell said he expected about 130 to 150 shooters to attend.

The day, which aims to bring members and non-members together for a social day out, has been running since 2001.

“It’s open to anybody,” Mr Russell said.

“Hopefully it will be as successful as in previous years.”

Prizes will be up for grabs.

A number of events will run on the day, including a high gun overall event; high gun novice; high gun club members; women’s; juniors; brigade; and inter-service team events.

There will also be a raffle with proceeds going to the Alfred Hospital’s burns unit.

Mr Russell said $9200 had been raised for the cause since the inaugural event.

“We’ve had a number of our CFA members treated at the burns unit, so we see it as a very worthy cause,” he said.

“It helps not just CFA members but members of the public.”

The day will start at 10.30am.

Cost is $20 for adults and $10 for under-18s.

Mr Russell said people could call him on 1800 608 117 for more information.
