Roma Clay Target Club Inc - A Little About Us
Roma Clay Target Club was formed on September 12th 1914. The club first shot clays at the old racecourse then moved to the Bungewogorai Creek before going into recession during WWII.
The club was reformed in 1948 by the late Keith Cameron and shot on "Comyndale" until moving to the old club on the corner of Geoghegan Road and Currey Street, Roma, in 1956. This block is still owned by the club and used for camping and practice purposes.
In October 1995 the club began fencing and planting trees at the current Geoghegan Road site adjacent to the old grounds. The club now boasts the second largest DTL layout in the country and possibly the best background. A fully licensed and air-conditioned clubhouse is the venue for many functions throughout the year. The club has a long history of members representing Queensland and Australia, which continues today.
The club is affiliated with the:
Australian Clay Target Association
Queensland Clay Target Association
Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (Qld).
Weapons Act approval is held for Category A, B, C, D (training only) and H firearms.
