Gary Alexander

Gary Alexander is an optometrist and company director of Specsavers Opticians in Newbury. Having started shooting at the Royal School Dungannon (Northern Ireland) his first visit to England was at the age of 13 to shoot the Imperial Meeting at Bisley and his attendance has been uninterrupted since. 
Touring and team shooting is much loved and with six GB tours and many more with Ireland, he has covered five continents and four countries within Africa. This has accumulated some practice as both coach and shooter and fond memories of the National and Elcho matches with Ireland as well as Kolapore, Protea, America and New Zealand matches with GB. 

Gary also enjoys game shooting and with the passing on of his beloved Springer Spaniels finds his hands full training his partner Zoe in the etiquette of the field. 
Training the Wiltshire Army Cadets, scuba diving and planning the "Fullbore World Tour" for 2013 seems to leave little free time.

On this seventh visit to South Africa, Gary is very much looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and seeing new parts of this beautiful country, not forgetting the red wine and red meats yet to be enjoyed.
