2008 Knotty Pine Open - NSSA

July 18-20, 2008 - Kirkland, Ontario

THE HOOPMAN WINS HIS 1ST GREEN T-SHIRT, by Frank Stewart.

A new attendance record was set at the 8th annuall Knotty pine open in July at Kirkfield, ont, with 59 shooters competing for medals, money and most of all the chance to wear the green champions t-shirt.

The idea came from the green masters jackets, but we are a small club and couldnt afford jackets, so we give the champion a green t-shirt.

Reg Hooper from London, ont, left the shoot wearing his 1st green t-shirt and a big smile, after breaking 199/200 targets to win the 8th annuall Knotty pine open.

So far Doug Burdett has 2 shirts, Mike Marten has one, Doug Knight has one and John Kapron has 3.

In second place with 197/200 was Bill Rudyk, Bill says next year he will get the green shirt.

Other champions were, Nick Ciancioci our J/R CH and Chase Stiff, JR/RU.

Joan Ego claimed the LDY/CH and Karen Sheridan LDY/RU.

Class winners were.
AA-Mike Martin
