Fish and Game Club 100 Bird Shot Wrap Up

This year was as exciting as it can get for the 100 Bird Shoot. Great weather, good entertainment, lots of shooters and plenty of food. The new Pat Traps worked like a charm. There were 108 contestants. The campground was full. Some folks showed up 3 to 4 days early to enjoy the area for golf and kayaking. Friday night the Club provided a local band to show our appreciation. It was the night of the Blue Moon and the skies were clear and the dancing fast.

Bill Callanan began registration at 7 am and shooting started at 8 am. Our kitchen help whipped up breakfast sandwiches and lunch.
