The 2017 Grand Pacific tournament will be held at the Spokane Gun Club, July 23-29. We hope you can attend this premier trapshooting event.
You can WIN FREE entry at the Grand Pacific – click HERE for all the details. NOTE: program change (pg 22): Ticket sales have been great so we will be doing a couple of the drawings early so the winners can prepare for their trip to Spokane Gun Club. The number of tickets sold by June 15th will determine the number of drawings held at that time (i.e. if 600 have been sold we will draw 3 winners). Get your tickets now for the best chance to win – only 1,000 will be sold – buy more than one ticket for multiplex chances. Entry fee prize may be transferred. The balance of the drawings will be held on July 22nd or when all the tickets are sold if that occurs sooner.
