What this included was getting your gun to fit you and then some coaching on shooting clay targets.

Mike spent time with each person adjusting there gun and shooting on the pattern board, fine tuning the gun to fit each person. Then they shot some targets all while getting some great coaching!!

All in all it was a very fun and successful weekend for Kenmore trap shooters. As Mike explained to everyone, fit is the most important thing to become a better shooter!! Thank you S&S Plus for coming here to fit everyone!!Pictures by Mark Phelps

Valentines Night Trap Shooting

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!
