From Larry Dark: Howdy
We had a beautiful day for 5 stand yesterday. Good crowd and got in a lot of shooting. Rodney and Bobby are running a first rate five stand. If you haven’t shot it in a while , you owe it to yourself to come check it out.
This is a big week for shotgun at Cherokee . We have some very active members that really want to see Cherokee as one of the top shotgun clubs in the region, this will also help the rest of the club with rifle and pistol as well. They are putting in a lot of time and effort to make this happen. We have the facilities , our members are as friendly and welcoming as any club in the area. This is what will make our club stand out. There are so many of our membership that put in time, effort, and even capitol. Many aren’t seen or recognized , but they are appreciated. We have people hauling targets, cleaning and doing upkeep on machines, organizing and planning events , preparing meals, and the list goes on and on.
This week starts a new program with shotgun events. We have new trap machines that are throwing some of the best targets in East Tennessee, we have our trap fields certified for registering ATA targets and will be holding our first (in many years) ATA big 50 event.
