On a particularly nasty-weather-even-for-the northwest day 44 shooters gathered at Old Skagit Gun Club for their December Shoot. The rain fell and the wind blew but Brian Fooks managed to shoot a 96 in the Singles Event and Mike O’Malley a 95 in the Handicap Event (to see all the results click here). During the lunch break, while everyone was warming up and drying off, two milestone events were celebrated. These milestones were actually shot during the Doubles Marathon at Old Skagit in October but the celebration was delayed until the December Shoot. Dave McCallum reached 150,000 registered targets while Creige Scribner shot his 50,000th. Congratulations to both of these shooters on this accomplishment.

Join the Executive Committee in welcoming the 2015 PITA All Stars.
The listing this year includes all shooters with the required number of targets. The chart shows how many major shoots each attended as well as the number of different clubs shot. Those in red/bold met the requirements of 5 clubs and 2 majors. Others listed would have qualified but lack one or more of the requirements.
Congratulations clubs and shooters! You broke another Multiplex record.
The November event shot at 42 clubs broke two records:
Most targets 62,050
Most shooters 463
Join the fun at the December event held December 5 or 6. Remember, you can only shoot the event once so if you shoot at two clubs the 2nd time you shoot is for registered targets only. The club should contact the PITA office should this occur. Payouts for the Oct, Nov and Dec events will be made in mid-December.
