The Callawadda-Stawell Clay Shooting Club will host its 75th Good Friday event on Friday, April 2 with around 100 competitors expected to join the annual competition.
Callawadda-Stawell Clay Shooting Club secretary Colin Dunn said he is expecting a high calibre of competitors from around the state to join in the chase for prizes.
"Last year was the first time in 75 years that the club didn't host the event due to COVID-19," he said.
"We are looking forward to hosting a strong field of novice and experienced competitors of all ages.
It's a great weekend, with our shooters tending to make a weekend of it in the Grampians with their families."
Mr Dunn said the 2021 main event (a 50 target point score championship) will be named the 'Stawell Gold Mines Good Friday Shoot' after the mines allocated a $2,000 community grant help the to the club to upgrade its electricity.
"It's been more than 40 years since electricity was installed at the club and it desperately needs an upgrade," he said.
"We are looking forward to completing this work in coming months, making the facility safer and power to the trap houses more reliable.
"The committee is very thankful to Stawell Gold Mines for this grant, which will enable us to continue to host high quality trap and skeet clay target shooting events."
Stawell Gold Mines environment and community superintendent Cameron Hope said the company was pleased to support a number of local clubs through the most recent round of community grants.
"We were happy to assist the clay target club in the upgrade of its electricity infrastructure to improve the safety of members and visitors and to ensure the smooth running of their events," he said.
