President’s Message – October 2013

President’s Message

(October 2013)

The Braggin Rights Shoot was a success. For the fifth straight year., George Ketter won the overall championship. The trap shoot was also won by George, Skeet was won by Lance Vidlak after an 8 member doubles shoot off, and the sporting clays was won by Greg Baylander. Congratulations to all of you. Since George has won every year since the shoot’s inception, we may have to rename this event the George Ketter Shoot. Well on second thought maybe not. I would like to thank Larry Odha for the delicious chili, Jim Burrows for donating the drawing prizes, and Harley Shepherd for assisting me in collecting the money and recording the scores.

There is nothing to report on the handgun range as we are still waiting for more dirt.

Club member Aurelio Delarosa has been certified by the State of Illinois as a concealed carry instructor. He will be offering the course to club members at reduced rates. As soon as the program has been defined, I will send an email to all of you with the pertinent information.

The sporting clays venue has been changed during this past week. The plan is to change it into a 5-stand course before the snow flies.

Club Projects

  • Handgun range – in process
  • Electrical power and cameras for the 5 stand and      handgun range – under consideration

2013 Club Events – all events have been completed

Best Regards,

Sam Valenza

President, Rockford Skeet Club
