It was a positively balmy day of + 8 degrees, which only added to the perfect day at the range. Although it was a bit slippery from the melting snow, our Range Operator Mike Lahaye did an outstanding job by manually shoveling over 3000 lbs. of sand single handedly, after the spreader shaft failed. With more than 125 club members and the general public attending, the range was buzzing.

Outdoors, we were sledding, had a Bon Fire to cook the perfect marshmallow, build your own smores, or just hang out, keep warm by the fire, while waiting to shoot trap.  The sound of shotgun blasts filled the air, as many people tried to improve on their trap scores from the previous year under the tutelage of Dave and Lucas.

Indoors, everyone was kept busy on the Club’s simulator, which has several different programs allowing you to test your skill and dexterity at hunting wild bores, geese, grouse, and deer, as well as several different marksmanship targets. Meanwhile, the younger kids scrambled to win prizes for their marksmanship skills by trying to hit their Hunter Dan spinning bottle targets. After mastering that event, kids moved on to the Face Painting by “Alanis Mooring Face Painting.” This was a big hit for the young and young at heart. On a more serious note, this year we had Search and Rescue attend the event. They were able to provide Adventure Smart ideas on how to survive in the wild, especially for the younger crowd.
