Well it has been a couple busy months at the Club! We have been seeing a lot of new faces during our indoor shooting times and with the kick off of our Junior program last week we hope to see this continue into our outdoor season which is (hopefully) just around the corner! Registration for our Indoor junior program is full but we are taking registration for our outdoor program that is slated to start in May (tentative day and time is Monday from 6-7:30).
Our Indoor league has seen some of our members achieving personal bests and some marked improvement in our scores since the league started in January. This league is set to be wrapped up in early April. If their is enough interest we will look at doing an outdoor league at some longer distances, FITA, etc.
Thanks to some of our younger members for trialling our Junior program before the initial launch - many of them were awarded Certificate of Achievements for their accomplishments. Good Shooting and keep up the good work!
Upcoming at the Club:
Our annual indoor 3D tournament is scheduled for March 25-26, 2017 at the Babcock Arena and the information bulletin is on the website under Tournaments. Setup will be on Friday March 24th so if you are available to lend a hand please do - Lots of hands makes light work!
