Bulkley Valley Rod & Gun Club has added two marathons to the calendar: March 30 (up to 500 doubles) and April 27 (up to 500 handicap). If your club wishes to add shoots/marathons contact your State or Provincial Secretary for approval.
Multiplex results are posted. Check your scores and let us know of any errors or omissions before the Saturday deadline.
Over 80 shooters from BC, WA, CA, OR and NV attended the 3 day shoot at Smith River, CA for the famous Crab Buckle Shoot. Some of the 1st timers attending were Bruce Mitzel (Tulelake, OR), Karen & Gary Hogue (Orovada, NV), Craig Wentworth (Merced, CA), Greg Deedon (Redding, CA), Chet Norcutt (Winnemucca, NV), Justin Evans (Elko, NV), Joe Stuart (Medford, OR), Glen Jager (Woodland, CA), Weldon Birch (Oakley, CA) and Tye Winegar (Madras, OR).
Bud Hoffman finally secured a crab buckle after trying for 15 years. Others winning a buckle for the 1st time were Greg Deedon, Keary Taylor, Cole Costanti, Zeb Kitchen and Brad Eatmon.
Weather was typical – sunny Friday, wind and rain Saturday and back to just pouring rain on Sunday. Hats off to Del Norte for a great job and to the trapshooters that toughed it out.
Check the Shoot Results page to see the winners. 49/50 in handicap earned a 1/2 yard so be sure to note your new yardage if you shot a 49 – there are 4 of you! Congratulations to Pat Bare – HOA winner for November 145/150.
