SHOOTING: The Kingaroy Clay Target Club will play host to the Queensland Police Clay Target Club two-day carnival on Saturday, September 16, and Sunday, September 17.

The weekend is forecast to be sunny with no wind.

These will be ideal conditions for shooting, according to president of the Kingaroy Clay Target Club and committee member of Queensland Police Clay Target Club, Garry Brown.

"We will have great conditions,” Brown said.

It is the 10th year the annual event will be held in Kingaroy.

As the event's reputation grows throughout the community it attracts more competitors from throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales every year.

A number of members from the Kingaroy club are involved with the Queensland Police Service and the club generously allows the use of its facilities for the event.

There are expected to be 120 competitors at the event ranging in ability from AA to C graded shooters as per the Australian Clay Target Shooting Association regulations.

"It is very competitive,” Brown said.

"We can expect a number of shoot-offs this weekend.”

The event is held to raise funds for the development of junior clay target shooting in Queensland.

Juniors, aged from 12-18 years of age, will compete in the event free of charge.

There will be six different events spread over the two days of competition.

Proceedings will begin at 9am with the target medley and single and double barrel championship.

Sunday will stage the target continental, points score and the coveted champion of champions event.

It is set to be a fun-filled weekend long affair.
