Brandon’s Pat Lamont survived less than ideal conditions on the weekend at the Brandon Gun Club to win a pair of provincial trap-shooting titles.
Dealing with strong winds, which causes the clay pigeons to veer and drop more than usual, the 28-year-old shot 195 of 200 targets to claim the overall singles title and 96 of the 100 targets to win the overall doubles competition. His father, Rob, finished second in both events.
Rock Lake’s Glenn Morrison took home a trio of titles, including the all-around championship as well as the senior veteran (70 and older) singles and doubles events.
Brandonite Barry Gordon and Virden’s Rod Stuart both won a pair of titles. Gordon won the Class A singles and Class B doubles competition while Stuart was the subveteran (55-65 years old) champion in both singles and doubles.
Wyatt Hiebert and Hunter Watson of Brandon won Class C and Class D singles, with Virden’s Matt Stuart taking the Class A doubles crown.
Wayne Dobbie hit 84 of his 100 targets to win the overall handicap title, while fellow Brandonites Matt Gordon shot 83 to claim the junior handicap championship.
