Two Man Team SC Shoot – THE WINNING TEAM GETS THE MOST EXCELLENT PRIZE- Our club president, Greg Hartman, will take the winning team on an upland bird hunt. Greg is an avid and experienced bird hunter and will take the 2 winners on a hunt at Blue Marsh, in the fall during pheasant season. The winners will coordinate with Greg as to the specific place, date and time. There will likely be some long, hard walking in rough terrain and thick brush, so some level of physical ability is needed.  This is a real upland bird hunt, NOT a preserve put-n-take hunt, so there are NO guarantees that the hunters will even see, let alone bag, birds but you will never forget this, which for many of us, would a once-in-a-lifetime experience!  Note: Valid PA hunting licenses and pheasant stamps will be needed for all hunters and will not be supplied as part of the prize. Happy Hunting!

Saturday & Sunday , June 11th & 12th
Green Bird SC Shoot – Shoot one or both days! Green birds will randomly be put in our target throwers and when you encounter a green bird and break it, it will be scored as a dead pair even if you missed the other target, but if you miss the green bird , it will be scored as a lost pair , regardless if you broke the other (orange) target. It requires the shooter to really pay attention and then to react to what they see.  It was fun last year …see you there!  Bob Hach has already agreed to provide very generous cash prizes for the winners of this event.
