    Shotgunners,


    We had another very successful day at the Ikes 5-stand event this past weekend! 53 shooters tried out their skill on the challenging range, but the elusive 25 out of 25 has yet to be shot. Hats off to Steve Odson for scoring the highest, and setting the range record with a score of 24 out of 25! (Of course, it was the very last target he missed)!


    The next scheduled open 5-stand event is scheduled for Saturday, August 18, from 9:00 – 2:00. We have the range reserved for open 5-stand every other Saturday through the end of October, but this is dependent upon participant turnout, weather, and other unforeseen events. Keep your eye on the Ikes calendar for any changes. http://www.ankenyikes.org/pages/google_calendar/ Look forward to different range set ups, target patterns, and sequences in the future. We’ll try to put a different twist into the range each time to challenge your skill and to improve your shooting. Help spread the word to others who may be interested!


    A big THANK YOU to the volunteers who commit much time and effort in the set-up, tear-down, and operation of the 5-stand range. It would not be possible to run an event like this without volunteers who are dedicated to increasing the awareness of this rapidly growing shooting sport. If you are interested in volunteering some of your time in the future, please let me know.


    Also, thanks to the Dragoon Trail Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America for this fine facility and equipment. If you are not already a member, we would like to have you on board. Visithttp://www.ankenyikes.org/threads/membership.44/ for more information.


    Thanks for a great weekend event!
