On September 11 2021 the sun came out and we started our day with Beautiful sunshine.
18 shooters gathered to take part in our shotgun wind up, in honor of a mentor to many of us, Gord Dixon.
We started the morning by shooting sporting clays, which Jeff Favreau scored the highest among the shooters, taking the prize for that discipline. After sporting we gathered for a nice lunch and we were lucky to be joined by Mrs. Leslie Dixon.
In the afternoon, we started by shooting both trap singles and trap doubles, simultaneously.
When the shooting was done, Larry Perkins from Dryden got high score in trap singles, and Dave Robertson got high score for trap doubles.
We also Have a prize for high overall if you participate in all 3 disciplines Which Dave Robertson also got high score in.
I would like to thank all the shooters for participating especially the shooters from Dryden and Vermilion Bay. A big Thank You to colleen Coker for scoring all the trap singles. The local shooters tried to get the shotgun chairman all choked up by Presenting a group signed card and gift certificates
Hope to see you all next year for more fun
Thank you all
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of fellow member Jeff Schwartz. Jeff was born January 09 1970 and passed August 11 of this year. He was 51. Not long ago we reached out to the members with a go fund me for Jeff to help with his battle with cancer, which many of you gave very unselfishly.
Jeff fought a long hard battle, but never gave up, he even came out to shoot with his shotgun pals when his strength was with him. Jeff was not a long time club member but has been involved in the shooting and hunting sports his whole life. Jeff made coming to the club fun, he kept fellow shooters entertained with a staunch political view, a sharp quip or a snappy saying. There was never a dull moment with Jeff around and for that we will always remember you.
Rest peaceful brother. You will be missed by the club and your shotgun family.
