*** Summer 2015 Trap Shooting Begins May 7th - From Merv Broten ***

For those of us who enjoy “breaking things” with our guns, the upcoming trap shooting season will give us the opportunity to do just that, and in the company of some very fine fellows to boot! As a reminder, this year we will be shooting on Thursday evenings, starting at 6:00. The switch to Thursday was driven by the fact that other Clubs in the area were also shooting on Wednesdays, and the move to Thursday would allow their members to shoot at our Club without a conflict, and our members to shoot at their Club. We do not have teams or leagues, just an open shoot. We usually shoot Wobble Trap, which means the thrower oscillates both horizontally and vertically as it throws the targets. Quite a challenge!

March Winner in the Raffle for Serious Sportsmen

The March drawing in the CVCC's Raffle for Serious Sportsmen was held at the monthly membership meeting on Thursday, February 26th. The lucky winner of the Colt Single Action Army Revolver 7.5" barrel in 45 Colt with a retail value of $1425.00 was Steve Stenslien. Our next drawing will take place at the April 30th at our member meeting. A Remington Versa Mas Semi Auto 12 Ga. with a retail value of $1427.00 will be given away. Good luck to all who purchased tickets.
