A twelve station 100 target shoot using A
& B stands. Targets were White Fliers with a
combination of orange and green targets used throughout.
Rain, Rain, & more Rain! A major
weather system started moving through the area on Saturday
afternoon and brought downpours, windy
conditions and below average temperatures that lasted well
into late Sunday afternoon.
Rain gear, boots, and rain spotted shooting
glasses pretty much summed up the day.
A hard core group of shooters took to the course
while several others decided to stay dry an warm themselves by
The wiser group may
have been those who chose to stay at the clubhouse, but those why
went out had an enjoyable time in very trying conditions. It's not
often you get to see your pattern cutting though the rain... I
also discovered that my shooting pouch did not have a drain
hole : (
The top shooters did not let the weather bother
them and Elie Zarife scored an 84 for top honors,
followed by Tony Olivieri (78), Gilles Bolduc (77), Anne Labrecque
(75), & Leo Laplante (75).
The trap boys did an excellent job under trying
conditions. Once again the staff working the club kitchen
outdid themselves and hot apple pie with a scope of ice
cream on top was the dessert
of the day.
The clubs next Sporting Clays shoot will be held on
May 13 & 14.
