Congratulations go out to Junior Shooter Peyton Rex for shooting his first ever 25 straight at The Old Skagit Gun Club (Burlington WA.) on February 7th during the singles event at the Multiplex. Weather for the shoot can only be described as monsoon type rain. Peyton is pictured getting his patch from Sherry Greene the shoot cashier and club officer. Peyton’s squad mates Dave Daniels, Don Reimers, Rudy Martinak and Dennis Pettit performed the customary shooting of the cap before leaving the trap field. As you can see from the picture Peyton’s hat is still in pretty good condition, maybe a little too good a condition. All four men missed that hat at a range of about 20 feet. This hat has now become Peyton’s very lucky hat.
Note: if any member knows of anyone that gives hat shooting lessons I know four guys that want to sign up for a class.
Editor’s comment: Rudy did get a little mud on the hat when he tried to shoot it on the ground.
