The 2013 version of the Terrace Rod & Gun Club and Whiskeyjack Archers was a huge sucess. While it is hard to put an actual number on how many persons were at the range there were 55 event tickest sold for the archery component and 247 for the various shooting events. There majority of guest that took part appeared to be family groups with lots of children between 11 and 15 years.
Congratulations to Chris Schooner and his team at the Biathlon range and to Larry Proteau and crew who had nearly 30 try outs at the Trap range. Nearly 25 guests tried out the next thing to an AK47 by shooting a Chinese SKS with Bob Barker and his crew on the Rifle range. The majority of the remaining event tickets were used at the Pistol range where Ed Morris and his crew manned six tables with each having a variety of handgun types in calibers fro .22 Long Rifle to .44 Magnum. Great job Sarah, in greeting everyone as the entered the range and guiding them to the most appropriate choice of firearm.
Ted Ramsey and Paul Harrison keep every one on thier toes with almost regular quarter hour firings of the Blackpowder Cannon.
Thanks to Louise, Joann and Pat for looking after the book work and keeping us fed with thoes great TRGC Burgers.
Great day, Great Fun, Good Shooting. Thanks to every one who worked to make it a sucess and thanks to all that participated.
Floyd Wickie has taken the inititive to start a fun night of RIMFIRE rifle and pistol shooting on Tuesday evening for the summer. This is planned as fun shooting rather than competition with every one who just wants to put some ammo down range no matter what level of skill they have. Floyd plans on using ractive targets that don't need to be manuall reset meaning that there will be lots of trigger time with minimal range delays. If you are looking for this type of shooting experience then join Floyd on Tuesday evenings between 7:00 and 8:00 (or maybe a little later) PM and enjoy. I took advantage of Floyds inititive and had a great deal of fun one evening and look fofward to doing it again. Floyd has a number of ideas that make this time pure fun.
He does say that there is time and the ability to put up a paper target if someone needs time and or help in sighting in thier gun and there is always a chance that some of the more experienced shooter will be there who can give a bit of help and advice to "them that want's it".
See you at the range.
The Executive take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to Terri and Jordie Edmons for thier time and information on properhandling of your game meat.
Thanks also the all the members who came out to listen to Terri & Jordie.
Thanks to all of you.
