Top guns at Haven Clay Pigeon Club were celebrated on Sunday.

The club - which can now boast more than 60 fully fledged members since enjoying a renaissance since a committee takeover in late 2011 - handed out trophies to top shooters from last year.

The High Gun award went to club member Dave Hodgson.

His average score of 89 per cent was the highest average of all shooters.

In second place was Keith Phillips-Jones.

Among those receiving trophies were competitors who earned 100 per cent records at Trophy Shoots last year.

Jim Allum, Steve Bridges, Dave Hodgson and Dave Priem all recorded 30 straight kills in events throughout 2012 - with the two Daves both recording a perfect round twice.

John King was named as the Most Improved shooter.

He joined the club in March and achieved an average of 41.6 per cent, improving that to almost 50 per cent by the end of the year.

Mike Burton won the Down The Line award.

Several shooters achieved perfect scores, but he was the only one to score a 45 on three occasions.

The last quarter Trophy Shoot was won by Steve Bridges (A Class), Robert Louth (B Class) and Gill Bradley (C Class).
