On Saturday September 14 2019 the shotgun division of the lake of the woods gun club, had our windup shoot as the Gord Dixon memorial shoot. The rain stopped and the sun came out and 18 people showed up to have some fun. We shot 3 different disciplines of shotgun shooting, such as sporting clays Single trap and doubles trap. We started at 1030 in the morning with sporting clays with Dwayne Cyr coming in with high score with 34/50 When all the groups got back to the club house, we had a smokie Bar B Que where we all had a good feed. After lunch we shot both single trap and double trap with Richard Bootsveld getting high score for singles with a score of 46/50 and Bill Dixon taking the doubles trap with a score of 34/50. We also had an award for high overall if you were involved in shooting in all 3 disciplines, we added up all your scores and Dwayne Cyr came in with top score with a 109/150. I believe that all the shooters were winners today because it was a super day of shooting. I was so very nice to see Mrs. Leslie Dixon who came out and spent some time with the shooters and share a little lunch with us. Leslie also make a generous donation of award plaques for the memorial shoot. Thank-you Leslie I would like to thank everyone that came out and hope to see you all next year.
