VISITING shooters will now have a room with a view when they compete at Guyra after Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall officially opened the $100,141 State Government-funded redevelopment of the Guyra Gun Club’s camping facilities and amenities last weekend.

 

Mr Marshall attended the club’s two-day shoot last Saturday with Armidale Regional Council Mayor Simon Murray and inspected the new campsites and amenities, which were already being put to good use by competitors and their families.

 

“The grant allowed the Guyra Gun Club to install eight new powered camp sites on the grounds and construct a new publicly accessible amenities block, making it the envy of clubs across the region,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“This project has taken the total number of powered camp sites from seven to 15, more than doubling the number of caravans, tents and pop-top campers, which can set up at the club during competitions.

 

“As we saw by the 80 competitors over the weekend, Guyra Gun Club is a popular venue for shooters and now the facility has the infrastructure which is capable of catering for everyone’s needs without them having to camp on top of each other.”

 

Club Handicapper Greg Brunsden said he was proud of what the club had been able to achieve with the funding provided by the State Government.

 

“Last weekend’s two-day shoot was a really good test of the new facilities, in particular the amenities, and I’m happy to say they were right on target,” Mr Brunsden said.

 

“We had competitors arrive at Guyra as early as the Wednesday and all of them raved about the cleanliness and accessibility of the new standalone amenities located right at the camp site.

 

“With this project complete I’m confident we are in the box seat to potentially host future regional shoots which will draw more visitors to Guyra and inject much needed funds into Guyra’s economy.”
