Friends and couples had a fun evening as 18 people set their sights at the buck and doe target shoot hosted by the Nelson Rod and Gun Club last night near Ymir.
Shooters gained points as they shot 10 rounds at a dart board target and 10 rounds at a deck of cards target. The scores of both targets were combined for a final score. Jason Bowers proudly walked away with a pair of 10x Bushnell binoculars as his fine marksmanship gave him the first place score.
Angela Adams-Helgren, coordinator for the gun club (Ladies Shoot) said, “We had lots of positive feedback and have plans to hold such an event again in the future. Everyone left with a prize.”
The grand prize rifle supplied by Barren’s Sports Shop was won by Todd Funk of Salmo.
Women are welcomed to join the ladies shoot every Thursday evening. Since 2010, Adams-Helgren, along with Lorne Trickett, and Annie Laundry have volunteered their time to enable many ladies the opportunity of non-competitive target shooting. During the warmer summer months, rain or shine several local ladies meet at the Jack Floyd outdoor range located on Porto Rico Road (Barrett Creek) near Ymir. The cost of $5 and includes everything. No previous firearm experience is required, nor is a firearm license.
