Considered one of the premium clay-shooting events here in Jamaica, today’s NCB Capital Markets Sporting Clays Open will feature an exciting and compact contest among Jamaica’s best. It will be staged at Woodleigh in Clarendon, which is adjacent to the Gun Range. Registration will open at 8 a.m., while Shotgun Start will be at 10.30 a.m. The entry fee is $1000, but ladies and juniors will enter free. Lunch will be provided. The competition involves Classes A to Hunters, Ladies, Juniors and Sub-juniors, who will be locked in their respective battles for titles, honours and bragging rights. “Each year, we all look forward to the NCB Capital Markets Sporting Clays Open with 16 interesting presentations,” said Khaleel Azan, Jamaica Skeet Club president. No doubt Azan said that a 60-80 feet articulated lift, sponsored by Zoukie, will provide shooters with international-type tower targets, while David Subaran will be providing scaffolding, enabling lower- tower type presentations. “Anyone that enjoys clay shooting should ensure that they are at this shoot,” stressed Azan. Many eyes will, no doubt, be on young Danzell Knight of Campion College, who is fresh off his first championship win and sub-junior Roman Tavares Finson of Hillel, who was runner-up in the junior inter-schools tournament recently. Meanwhile, David Subaran, who emerged top marksman at the recent Spectrum Systems Limited Sporting Clays to capture his first championship, will have to show his mettle against defending National Shotgun champion Christian Sasso, Bruce DuQuesnay, and Brett Thwaites.
