A BIG THANKYOU- A big thank you going out to all who helped with the CWTA shoot held in January. It was a little thin on the number of members there to help mark – it take the support of members to volunteer a little time to keep this club running and keep our target prices down. The ATA shoots are right around the corner so mark your calendars and come out and help mark for a few rounds. The more help available the more often we can offer relief to the markers for a break. The first ATA shoot is May 6&7.

Think Spring – Trap Season is right around the corner – now is a good time for those of you who have not shot over the winter to check over your equipment for the upcoming season. It is always a good refresher to think gun safety not only on the range or in the field but also when handling guns at home. Think of the acronym TAB-K
T- Treat every gun as if it were loaded
A- A- Always point your muzzle in a safe direction
B - Be sure of your target and beyond
K - Keep your finger out the trigger guard until you are ready to shoot.
