SAHGCA Newsletters (56)
In the 12 months to September 2012 some 32 300 individual shottists participated in SAHGCA shooting competitions (at branch, regional and national level). We expect that the overall participation for the 12 months to September 2013, when these figures become available, will be substantially higher again. (The level of participation in regional competitions has increased by some 35% compared to last year). On any given Saturday, there are, on average, 12 SAHGCA shooting competitions taking place around the country. The standard of shooting also continues to rocket, with well more than 100 people gaining platinum awards during regional President’s shoot qualifiers. In fact, it is likely that a few unlucky individuals will have shot platinum at the regional level during the year but still have failed to qualify for the President’s shoot!
