October 21st was a great day for a woods walk. Shooters of all ages enjoyed the challenge of hitting the Halloween themed targets. Hearty chili and a warm fire welcomed back the participants to Homer’s Bay. It was good to see everyone on the trail having fun.
BWSA also held a new charity event, the .22 Chicken Egg Challenge, in conjunction with the Woods Walk. 33 shooters tried to shoot an egg at 200 yards with a .22lr rifle and 11 hit it.
Congratulations goes out to 1st place Ed Allbaugh and 2nd place Fred Juziuk. Sam LaVere won the Hawk Optic spotting scope.
We were able to donate $500 and a box of cell phones and hygiene items to Safe Horizons. Thank you to all shooters who came out for the challenge. Looking forward to doing this again next year!
