The Winter Skeet League Banquet was a resounding success!

We had a great turnout in spite of the cold windy weather and a good time was had by all.

The shooting games were a big success as always. Thanks to Jim Spiroff, Bob Johnson, Steve Tabacco, Karl Schuknecht and all our pullers who braved the elements all afternoon and insured our shooters enjoyed all the shooting games. The office staff of Tamara and Ed Allbaugh, and Don Morgan made sure the clubhouse and fields were all set up for us. Thanks guys.

The 4 division winning teams shot off in typical winter league weather. White Division shooters John Hyde, Zach Stone and Sean Kennedy picked a good day step up their game and take the overall league championship. John shot 25 straight. Sean had a respectable round. And Zach Stone, who broke his foot a few days earlier, shot an astounding 23 on one leg while kneeling on a rolling walker.

Individual Shooting awards were:

  • Men’s Hi Gun – Paul Robbins
  • Lady’s Hi Gun – Ainsley Coleman
  • Junior Hi Gun – Braden Ingles
  • Most Straights – Skip Hyde
  • Best Skeet League Trap Shooter – Gerald Whiting
  • Most Improved – Ryan Onafrek

The highlight of the banquet had to be the meal. This year I had it catered by Village Café of Richmond. George and Maria did a fantastic job from set up to clean up and I only heard high praise for their meal from the guys I talked to. I highly recommend them if any of you need to have an event catered. Their business cards are on the bulletin board and Tamara has a few in the office.

Stop by the club this summer guys. There’s a lot of shooting events happening this year. “Like” the Facebook page and you’ll automatically get announcements from the club. And with that, I officially close out the 2018 Winter Skeet League. Thanks to everyone who pitched in and helped me throughout the year. I had so much fun this year,  I think I’ll do it again next year. Shoot straight, shoot often and brass to the back.
