Eighteen Cariboo trapshooters ignored chilly weather last Sunday to indulge in their favourite sport — shotgun shooting.

Eighteen Cariboo trapshooters ignored chilly weather last Sunday to indulge in their favourite sport — shotgun shooting.

Nine shooters from Williams Lake, five from the 100 Mile area and four from Quesnel gathered at the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association trap range to compete for a variety of meat prizes in 18 clay target events.

Top shooter from Williams Lake was Reid Williston, taking home four prizes, with Cliff Stinson and George Chignell, also local shooters, each won an event. George Ostoforoff topped the South Cariboo group with four wins, while Malcolm Cattanach had two wins and Gary Martin and Rob Altmannshofer one each.

Adam Veley and Frederik Badenhorst each won two events to take prizes home to the North Cariboo, while John MacDonald won one.

The recent shoot could be considered a warm-up for the next Williams Lake competition — the popular New Year’s Day shoot. The event is the biggest shotgun shoot of the year and features wobble trap targets, 16-yard events for youth, novices, intermediate and expert competition, Annie Oakley shoots and Bushwhackers. Start time is 10 a.m. and lunch is available.
