The ten-week telephonic Camas Prairie Trapshoot will begin Sunday, Jan. 14.
“While the April shoot was not that well-attended due to the lousy weather we have had the past several years, our August shoot was one of the best ever,” Mark Kurruk recently wrote in a letter to Grangeville Gun Club members.
The turnout allowed the club to buy and install a new automatic trap in trap six.
“The added trap will allow us to use the number one trap for practice, and also make it available should we have a breakdown during one of the registered shoots,” Kurruk noted. “It can also be used as another trap during the ten- week or the spring league shoot so members can get done before dark.”
The club board also opted to move the April shoot to June 9-10. The August shoot dates are Aug. 25-26.
The annual dues are $20 a year and this is also the same cost for individual and well as family membership. The dues must be paid to qualify for the ten-week trophies.
The cost of targets for members is $3 while nonmembers will have to pay $5, except for shooters attending either of the registered shoots and members of spring league shoot teams.
“These will be given the opportunity to shoot practice for the $3 fee,” Kurruk wrote on behalf of the club board.
The Camas Prairie Handicap Championships will be held March 23-24-25 at the Walla Walla Gun Club.
“Camping reservations and presquading will be posted at the clubhouse soon,” Kurruk added. “We look forward to seeing you soon, and remember the club is open each Saturday at 1 p.m.”
