Our Spring Trap league ended on June 29th & a party was held on July 2nd. It would seem appropriate to say that a good time was had by all in attendance. During this league, approx. 10,000 targets were thrown to accommodate the shooters in the program. Thank you to all of those that volunteered their time to make it a success.

A doubles trap league began on July 6th & will continue for a total of 6 weeks. Again, all are welcome to participate.

After the 6 week of doubles, a week of open shooting follows. The Fall League starts on August 20th & will run the normal 10 weeks. AGAIN, All are welcomed. If you have never done this before, help & advice is here. Do not feel as if you have to be an excellent shooter, good shooters start out with plenty of low scores & progress to getting better. Bottom line; DON'T BE AFRAID TO TRY!!!!

At the June meeting, I gave a report & told the membership on June 21st a shipment of targets & shooting supplies was to be delivered to our club. June 21st came & a large number of members, shooters & NON-SHOOTERS alike came out to provide more help than we had ever had in the past. I do believe it took only approx. an hour & 15 minutes to complete the mission. To each & everyone of those people - THANK YOU. It was great to see the members come together.
