September 2017 Shotgun News

Oakland County Sportsman Club is looking better than it has in many years, thanks to the volunteers that have been working the many work bees and other groups volunteering for their sub clubs. It would really be great if we could keep this enthusiasm going past next year’s anniversary celebration. With a few extra volunteers our club could look like this, and even better, all the time.

At shotgun, our summer league is winding down, and our fall league about to begin Sept. 12th. It will be  400 birds over 8 weeks, with 2 man teams competing in skeet and trailer trap. 200  birds each.

I would like to give some kudos out this month since we have a couple of pullers and their family, which have been a great addition to our shotgun family. Many of you know Dana and Gillian Baird. They are relatively new pullers at shotgun, but he is something you may not know. Last weekend, Aug. 5th & 6th the family competed in the state Games of America shooting sports event that was held in Grand Rapids. In shotgun, our Junior Shotgunner, Dana won a gold medal, and her dad, George took 4th place-4 points out of medal contention.

In small bore rifle, Gillian, (shotgun club puller), took a gold, shooting 898 out of 900 w/ 64 bulls eyes in 13 and under open iron sights class. Only one person shot a better score in the entire competition with 899 in the male scope class.

Dana also won gold in 14-54 age group female iron sights class with894 w/54 bulls eyes. Mom, Michelle just missed earning a medal by 3 points, with a 855 score and 33 bulls eyes. Now that is a talented family. Congrats to all of you for great representing OCSC.


As Always,

Be Safe-Shoot Often
