Bill Damora of Oak Bluffs and Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., shot 48 of 50 targets to win the 2012 Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club Skeet Championship on Sunday.

With a slight rain and a warm breeze filtering off Segekontacket Pond, Bill defeated class ‘B’ winner Brian Reed and Class ‘C’ winner Brian Welch to defend his 2011 skeet title.

The club’s annual pistol championships will be held on Saturday, October 6, from 10 am to 3 pm at the Rod and Gun Club’s target range off Third Street in Edgartown. Members and non-members are welcome to compete. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
