On Saturday January 14, 2017 the Douglas Ridge Youth Shotgun Team shot the Portland Gun Club New Year’s Tournament. If you weren’t there you really missed out. The temperatures fluctuated between 17 and 23 degrees with winds of 20-30 mph and gusts to about 40 mph. The wind chill temp was 5 degrees. In a nutshell, it was brutal.
Our Team Photographer, Dave Phipps, took some great photos and has them at https://flic.kr/s/aHskC9DJNL for your enjoyment.
These kids are tough! Obviously, I’m very proud of the Team but I want to especially thank the families for coming out and bringing the Team to the shoot. Just getting there was an adventure and no one bailed. We are very lucky to have the support of the gun club paired with the incredible support from the families.
