Harris Gun Club is proud to announce that another junior member of the club, John Hughson aged 16, is on the 2017 Scottish Shooting Team.
John competed in the Scottish Open National Skeet competition 06/08/17 and hit 96 of the 100 clays. Although he was placed 8th out of 79 shooters, John won the Scottish Junior High Gun (closed trophy) and came 2nd in B Class (not restricted to juniors only).
John also competed in the Scottish Open Skeet Doubles 05/08/17 scoring 96 points out of a possible 100. Although placed 5th out of 48 shooters, John came 1st in C Class.
However, John also finished joined equal for the overall competitions high-gun, but was not available to attend the shoot-off which then by default went to the other high scoring competitor.
John will represent Scotland at the ICTSC National Skeet Home Countries International Tournament 25th-26th August in Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone.
This is the second year that John has made it onto the Scottish NSK Junior Team.
John took up the sport of clay target shooting at the age of 12 in 2013, the same year that Harris Gun Club relocated from Urgha to Aline Forest.
Harris Gun Club members are so very proud of you John, congratulations and good luck for Ireland.
