The South Vancouver Island Rangers October shoot will be October 13-14 and not October 6-7 as previously shown online and not 20-21 as printed on the green pocket schedule.  Mark your calendar for SVIR on October 13 & 14.

Ridgedale Rod & Gun Club first PITA shoot since 1974.

Really nice trophy package, produced by Olson in Canada at very competitive pricing, for Blair Duncan and Cory Boileau.  Trap Division officers, Brian Fooks and Dave Graham are intending to make this an annual event at this time of the year, before the year’s farming gets intense!

There were 53 shooters and 5 events!  Great turnout for the best 2-trap club in BC!  All white Caldwell targets with a similar background to KWA #2 Trap or SVIR #4.

It was a big day for the Douglas Ridge Youth Shotgun Team at the March 31 Canby Tournament.

The results (click here):

In singles, Lance Moser took a C-Class win with a 96/100.  Lance also shot his first 25 straight in competition so everyone at the tournament got together to shoot his hat.  Great job Lance!  Dylan Nelson took the Junior win with a 93/100.

Wyatt Copeland shot an 88/100 in the Handicap event to take the Junior title.  In Doubles, Wyatt Copeland took the B-Class win with an 86/100 and Dylan Nelson took the Junior win with an 81/100.

High Overall (HOA) for the day were Wyatt Copeland in B-Class with a 261/300; Dylan Nelson took the junior trophy with a 259/300; and Lance Moser came home with a C-Class trophy for his 248/300.  The HOA trophies were one troy ounce bars of silver.  Very Shiny.  Great Job Guys!!

Of note, we now have a couple of adult club members joining the DRRC Team at the tournaments.  I’m very pleased with this development.  These fellas have been coming out to shoot with us at the club and have enjoyed watching the youth team develop. They’ve developed friendships with the kids and the families and it took very little arm twisting to get them join us in competition.  This was their second Tournament with the team and they signed up for the next tournament, so I think they are enjoying it.
