News and Announcement
Women in the Outdoors
There is a Women in the Outdoors event planned in Plymouth, WI on Aug 26-28, 2018. One of the representatives for a member club made me aware of it and suggested it may be of interest, and I agree. There is information on the web and Facebook. Click here for the web link.
New shoots added
Fall River Rod & Gun Club and Readfield Gun Club have added shoots to the Calendar. Fall River is returning and Readfield is new. Thanks.
Website Down Time
I became aware that the site was down for a couple of days around the weekend of Feb. 24 & 25. I contacted the company that hosts the web site and the server that our site resides on had crashed. They worked on the server on Tuesday night and the site is now up and running again. I apologize for any issues this may have caused, but it is out of my control. I think this is only the second time in 15 years that the hosting service has had an issue that affected the site.

Many of us are hunters as well as trap shooters. When should we start taking our children or grandchildren along with us? Check out the links page for an interesting article under Miscellaneous Links titled : Young Hunters: When to get children started.
The 2018 Calendar is updated with all information available to me. If you don't find the shoots for your favorite club, ask them to join the site and send me the info. Thanks.
Colleges with Trap and Skeet Programs
If you enjoy trap or skeet shooting, are in high school, and you're planning to attend college, you might want to consider schools that have strong trap and skeet programs. Attached is a list that could help get you connected with a college that can provide the major you are looking for and competitive shotgun shooting opportunities.
Shooting event to support Cancer Research
I was given some information about an organization called Gunning For Hope. The web site is GunningForHope.org. Check out the organization and consider supporting them.
Thanks to all who support "Cause Shoots".
We are all faced with challenges in our lives, but some take the form of serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Many fellow shooters are directly affected by these diseases, and other shooters rally to support them with fund raisers in the form of "Cause Shoots", such as the cancer shoots at Berlin and Hartford and the juvenile diabetes shoot at Eastshore. I personally want to thank all of you who support these wonderful causes.
REMEMBER: INTRODUCE SOMEONE TO SHOOTING. IT'S THE FUTURE OF THE SPORT
