Due to inclement weather Old Skagit was closed on February 9 and 12. The club will be open on Thursday February 14. (Board meeting postponed until February 21.)
The International League Shoot is still planned for this coming weekend February 16 & 17. There will be no practice traps available on Saturday but the monthly fun shoot is still scheduled for Sunday.
Thank you to everybody for making this another successful year for our fund raising for Toys for Tots. Many toys were collected to go along with $4200 in cash for this worthy cause.
Ten shooters came together to participate in a 2-day clinic put on by Ms. Nora Ross, her 3rd class at our club. This year Nora used the same videotaping methods to show students how they handled the gun, stance & gun placement. Her verbal direction, reasoning, experiences & some training techniques deviated from last year’s clinic. She was not delivering the same information like a tape recording; it was tailored to the class & individuals. Amazingly, she can see small things that happen so fast affecting a shooter’s performance. I’ll be in her class next time she comes to town.
(Also--Thanks to club members Kerry Dodson, Debbie Kelly, and Creige Scribner who volunteered their time and effort to make this clinic a success.)
