Guyra Gun Club will now have the firepower to host larger events, upgrading onsite amenities, camping facilities and electricity supply with a $100,141 grant from the Nationals in Government.

NSW Nationals Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the existing facilities had been stretched, particularly at the club’s larger shoots when people had come from interstate to compete.

“The grant will allow the club to construct a new publicly accessible amenities block and create many more powered camping sites for use all year round,” he said. “Many visiting shooters and their families camp at the club grounds for a number of days so these facilities are critical to keeping these large events going in our region. Guyra attracts shooters from everywhere and it’s one of the strongest clubs around with a membership of 110 that prides itself on encouraging younger and up-and-coming shooters to do better.”

This project will not only improve facilities for them but will bring other benefits to the local community through increased public use of the venue.
