Shotgun News 8/29/2022

From Larry Dark: Howdy

Well we are ready to start a new month of shooting opportunities here at Cherokee and around the region. We had shooters on the shotgun range all weekend, with 5 stand on Saturday and an impromptu shoot on Sunday afternoon. With about 22 pretty regular shooters taking advantage of our 5 stand last month. Scores are recorded and kept for 5 stand , if the shooter runs at least 3 rounds they are automatically in the running for the monthly league. Below are the rankings for August 5 stand….Congrats Mike.

We also had some shooters make the trek to Watauga (Boone) to shoot in there monthly ATA shoot, Clay Klingensmith, Lee Perry & Joe Trujillo made the trip, with Lee Perry winning class in doubles with a 90 out of 100 and Joe winning class in singles with 97 out of 100.

Last I heard Cheorkee still had shotgun shells available at the clubhouse. Anytime Joe Trujillo, Charlie Dove, or Bob Minke are there they can sell them to you. They can also set you up with the promatic cards for the skeet and trap fields.
