Open Skeet Shooting

Due to schedule change in our registered skeet shoot tomorrow there will not be any practice field available

We should have one field available this Saturday and Sunday for skeet shooters who are not participating in the registered skeet shoot.

May Club Skeet Shoot Report

The howling gusts almost cancelled the noise of the gunfire. We had 8 go for it shooters who were New Mexico true competitors. 3 classes had shoot offs A won by Tom Pitcavage, B won by Dorothy Proffitt and D won by youth shooter Emily Massey. Class C was won outright by her brother youth shooter Kaleb Massey. I believe all enjoyed the challenge especially those who treated it as a warm up for the skeet competition this comming weekend. Powder at low 8. Preston

May Club Trap Shoot

A great success we had 11 shooters and all had some laughs and frowns. We had shooters in classes A thru D and a total of $77 was awarded. A class did have a 3 way shoot off with a youth shooter Tyler out lasting two old pro’s. Hope to see more of you next month. Preston
