We hereby pay tribute to one of the stallwarts of target shooting
WOUTER de VOS
We knew Oom Wouter for nearly 15 years at the Durban Deep Club.. Full of nonsense if you do not behave, but he had a heart of GOLD for shooting. He encouraged schools to start shooting ISSF 50m ( In the days of cadett rifles). He even funded the purchase of paper for the target from his own pocket, just so that shooting will not run out of target..
The Wouter de Vos Clubhouse at Durban Deep is truely missing a "pillar"
We can only wish that the people who continues in target shooting, can take a few good lessons out of the life of Oom Wouter, and make our sport a WINNING sport
Oom Wouter we salute you!
Adriaan, Annerien, Anzia, Erhardt Snyman
