Year of achievements and politics
In April, we highlighted the Anzac Centenary with a series of articles on service arms and important remembrance organisations, and in May began trialling the use of Facebook for communicating with members and promoting the Association’s activities. Also in May, we welcomed the publication of The University of Queensland’s ‘Expenditure and motivation of Australian recreational hunters’ and the Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries’ ‘Estimating the economic impact of hunting in Victoria’ reports, which quantified something most recreational hunters already know - that hunters and hunting provide real benefits to the community and the economy.
In July and August, 29 Australian target shooters headed over to Glasgow to represent our country at the Commonwealth Games. Congratulations again to the team, who finished on top of the shooting medals table with their haul of six gold and two bronze medals.

The SSAA now runs more than 16 disciplines and there really is something out there for shooters of all interests. Read more >
