 Congratulations to all of the point leaders as of the second $&B Race in February.  Remember you earn one point for every target broken and RESHOOTS count.  So come early and shoot late — BREAK LOTS of TARGETS!   The prize, will be awarded (in his/her Class/Concurrent) for the most total cumulative points earned at the conclusion of June 2021 $&B Race.  The prize will be:  the shooters choice of either $0.06 per target broken or $0.03 per target broken and a beautiful trophy buckle.

Our second $&B event at Ed’s Sporting Clays Range saw 58 shooters shoot (at) 9,400 Registered Targets and successfully break 7242 (77%).  The turnout was great and the terrible cold weather gave way to sunshine (sunburn weather) and cold temperatures.   Thank you Ed for the wonderful hospitality and warm chili (and cookies) on a cold day.
