After the shoot was done, The Shot Gun Club hosted a BBQ. Cooking the burgers and brats were Joe Rinaldi and Mark Silver. Pam Stewart and Lisa Miller helping with serving all the food.
Big thanks to Granite Falls, Machais and Kenmore for putting together prizes for the 8 Junior Shooters, as they all went home with either 2 boxes of shells or punch cards for 4 rounds of trap at Granite or Kenmore!
Thank you again to all of the shooters who attended and making this a fun shoot!
It was a snowy and cold 28 degrees on the Pistol Range for our February Ladies’ Pistol Night, but we still had 8 brave lady shooters join us for some instruction and range time. Several of our shooters were repeat visitors, but we also had 4 brand new ladies venture out for the very first time. Hot coffee, pizza, and snacks were enjoyed during the breaks that the ladies took to warm up in our Pistol Classroom. With the help of some fantastic gentlemen volunteers who gave up the coziness of their own homes to coach and maintain safety standards, the ladies who ran the event, Jo, Daphne, and Majsan, kept the lady shooters energized and excited.
Ladies’ Pistol Night runs every month, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, from 5-9:pm. Volunteers are always needed to help the event go smoothly. If you would like to volunteer, or you have more questions about the event, please contact Majsan Champagne at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on the Range!
Ladies Night was an absolute success! We had 28 attendees…father/daughter, husband/wife, date night couples, friends meeting with friends…we even had a couple who brought their 6 week old baby! First mom would shoot, dad would hold the baby in the clubhouse then mom would hold the baby and dad would shoot. Majsan brought a GIANT heart-shaped box of chocolates and we had pizza, cookies and a veggie tray for those watching their figures. Robb Stack, Majsan & Travis were our volunteers and it was a cold night. I really appreciated their perseverance in the frosty air. Lizzy was a perfect greeter and melted many hearts. This night also offered new members who had only shot at the pistol and rifle ranges to come out and try trap shooting. What a wonderful event!
