Old Skagit March PITA Shoot
March 11 & 12, 2017
Old Skagit held its spring shoot on another cold, wet, and windy weekend on March 11 and 12. Seventy-eight shooters gathered and participated in 300 singles on Saturday and 100 handicap and doubles on Sunday. There were some good scores (and some not-so-good scores) but everybody enjoyed getting the spring shooting season started.
There were even some highlights to the days despite the gloomy weather. Brian Hazen came down from Canada and shot a 100 straight on Saturday in the middle event of 300 singles. His name will join that of several other shooters on the plaque at the gun club. Mark Arnold of Graham, Washington, scored his first ever 25 straight also on Saturday. On Sunday Parker Jensen of Burlington, Washington, joined PITA and went on to win the Handicap event, scoring his first 25 straight as well. Good job Parker! (Please see our Trophy Report for full list of results.) Charles Stacey also had a good weekend and won HOA with his 475 after tying (with Don Meece) for A Class on Saturday and winning Doubles with his 98.
Thank you to everybody who participated in the shooting (and to the families and friends who came and supported them) and also to all our volunteers who helped to make this a successful shoot.
