SSAA NSW HOSTS POLLIE TRY SHOOTING

Last week we were thrilled to host a group of NSW State MPs for our first Pollie Try Shooting event!

Stephen Bromhead (Myall Lakes – Nationals), Steph Cooke (Cootamundra – Nationals), Phil Donato (Orange – SFFP), Austin Evans (Murray - Nationals), Andrew Fraser (Coffs Harbour – Nationals), Michael Johnsen (Upper Hunter – Nationals) and Bronnie Taylor (MLC – Nationals) visited the St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre.  To kick off our visitors were given a tour of the Centre, then over lunch we provided a run down on SSAA NSW; who we are and what we do as well as some interesting facts about the shooting sports, recreational hunting and firearms owners before trying a variety of different firearms and competing in a couple of good natured challenges.

Feedback was very positive with all MPs enjoying themselves, and most indicating they were keen to return again.  We will be hosting more MPs at the Centre in the not too distant future, especially those who had hoped to attend but were called away at the last moment.

This event provided an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our sport, SSAA NSW and the Centre first-hand to decision makers that can impact upon our recreation, and given its success this is an initiative that SSAA NSW will continue.
