The proposal to establish a State Clay Target
Ground at Echuca incorporating the Echuca Clay Target
Club and surrounding land has finally been agreed upon.
The land owner has agreed to sell 60 acres of his land. The land purchased will cover the fall-out area for 12 trap layouts and incorporate a car park of approximately five acres. This acquisition will totally secure the future of the site as our State Ground.
The $10.00 VCTA affiliation fee, paid by all adult members over the past few years, has placed our State in a sound position to finance this project, however with surveying of land, transfer fees, land tax, legal costs etc., plus the purchase of the land, we are looking at an approximate shortfall of some $100,000.
With contracts close to completion, we now need to find this finance. I am personally asking all Zones, Clubs and Members if they can assist with monetary donations toward this exciting project.
With well over 2,000 full members in Victoria, if only 200 members donated $500 or 500 members donated $200, or even if 2000 members donated $50 we would have the amount required.
For anyone willing to assist please contact your Zone or State representatives.
Please give this your full consideration and support.
Malcolm Dyson VCTA State President
