ROBBIE KATTER NAMED PISTOL SHOOTING QUEENSLAND PATRON

Robbie said he was honoured to accept Pistol Shooting Queensland’s invitation to be its patron.

“Pistol Shooting Queensland is a great organisation which promotes the sport of target pistol shooting in a responsible way,” Robbie said.

Pistol Shooting Queensland is the sport’s state peak body, providing leadership to more than 40 clubs. Membership with Pistol Shooting Queensland provides all members with affiliation to the national body for the sport, Pistol Australia. It is also the only pistol shooting body in Queensland which provides members with the eligibility and pathway to be selected for Commonwealth and Olympic Games, including those athletes with a disability.

“Target pistol shooting is a challenging sport,” Robbie said. “There are men and women of all ages who enjoy it, as well as a strong cohort of juniors coming through. The people who participate through Pistol Shooting Queensland’s clubs love their sport, and are serious about safety. Despite what some people might think, it’s definitely not a bunch of red necks shooting in their back yard. It’s a serious sport, and the clubs take safety really seriously,” Robbie said.

Robbie went to Pistol Shooting Queensland’s home at Belmont Shooting Complex in Brisbane, which will be host next year’s Commonwealth Games shooting competition.

“The facilities being built out there for the Commonwealth Games are incredible, and they will be available for Pistol Shooting Queensland to use after the games are over, so there’s never been a better time to get involved in the sport,” Robbie said.

Pistol Shooting Queensland President Michele Sandstrom said the decision to offer Robbie the role was an easy one.

“Robbie has been a long-time supporter, and understands what Pistol Shooting Queensland is about. When Robbie was nominated at our last Annual General Meeting, he was unanimously endorsed by all. We know he understands the importance of safety in our sport, and will help us to promote it. We are very excited to have Robbie on board.”
