The 2016 Winter Fun Shoot concluded on February 28. We had 29 rifle shooters and 10 tradegun
shooters over the nine weeks, averaging  17 shooters per week.  Along with the shooting, we held
competitions for knife & tomahawk throwing and fire-starting with flint and steel.  Winter temperatures
ranged from 4 degrees to 46 degrees.  

Many attendees bring food to share and the shooting event has also evolved into a cooking contest.  We
had some great food and lots of it!    Al Haynes was the winner this year.  Every week he brought in a
Dutch Oven full of fruit cobbler  --  made with a different fruit each time.   

Thanks to all who helped make it a safe and fun shoot.
