Melton Pistol Club 50th Anniversary Celebration - What an Event !

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

On Saturday 29th Oct Melton Pistol Club celebrated its 50th anniversary, in style at a relaxed event.

It was a great occasion with over 100 people attending, including members, past and present.

As well a number of politicians from various Australian parliaments both local, state and federal areas. Each member of Parliament in their celebration speeches to the gathering detailed their experiences and admiration for the Melton Pistol Club and what it has achieved and done over the last 50 years.

Not many Pistol Clubs in Australia can claim they have been in operation for 50 years.

Just some of the many members past and present whom attended

As stated in the various congratulations speeches on the day, the Melton Pistol Club has achieved a lot in the last 50 years, from upgrading its shooting ranges and facilities for its members. To training and encouraging new members and young people in the local area to undertake and improve their skills in the sport of competition pistol target shooting. As well fostering a fun collegial environment for its members to both socialise and share their challenges and their enjoyment of target pistol shooting.
