Be sure to come early if you haven't signed up on Presquad. Lot's of prize money. Over $9000 in the club handicap Magnums. Shoot a perfect 50 on the selected traps and you could take some of that money home with you.
Be sure to attend this shoot. So many good people and lot's of fun events after the shooting. The Famous Clacutta is always a hoot, bid on your favorite shooters and win some money if they place, show or win!
We want to encourage all of our members to participate in these events if you can. Many of the members at these club events come to all of our events to help support our shooting sports. It really helps our sport and 2nd amendment rights.
