2016 – Kevin Irwin and his small group did a great job getting the traphouse up and running! Many hours were spent in getting our new trap field ready for shooting!
2017 – Gary Granger has agreed to head the Trap Committee. A few people have worked on lots of improvements to date, rebuilding the scorer’s shack, tuning the trap machine, picking up and delivering birds, getting a voice activated system and setting it up. Laying out the field markers and height check pole. The idea is to get the field ready for league play. I would like to thank everyone else who spent a work day or partial work day helping out. Special thanks to Jim Walker, Dale Macklen, and Tim Howell for going above and beyond.
Shooting before the family picnic was a great success. We also had some Sunday shoots this summer, that were very popular. Lots of new people learning to shoot and score trap!
Future – There will be much more work to do next year (2018) as we try to get the trap facility in top shape. Installing lights and redoing electric, plus many other things. Hopefully we can host a shoot of some kind. (50 bird shoot?) We will have another chance to join the NTTL if there is enough interest. There will be work to do, ask if you need a work day!
News and Notes:
We have had the last scheduled shoots for 2017. There will be no shooting before the Nov., Dec, Jan, Feb meetings. In the spring a shooting schedule will be made up and posted here (and on Facebook Page). If we do have some sort of impromptu shoot, it will be announced on the Facebook page.
Since so many things have changed, the old list of people who have been trained on the thrower is no longer valid. Please contact Gary Granger 315-427-1162 or Jim Walker 315-591-8868 if you are interested in shooting, joining the trap committee or trap team, or are interested in being trained to use the machine.
