First of all, we would like to thank everyone for your patience last week. The unexpected roof maintenance threw us off but we are back full swing!
This is our first handicapped league and after looking at the scores it appears that shooters of all levels will be put to the test.
Jill and Colleen are in a tie for first, followed closely by Ben. We can only imagine the trash talking that will be taking place back at Ben and Jill’s house!
We are excited to be bringing back more events like our popular Bowling Pin Shoot. For those who have not participated in this event, it is very simple. 12 bullets vs 6 pins, whoever knocks down more pins with less bullets wins! We had 16 competitors with a wide variety of skill sets, and everyone seemed to have a great time. Don came out the winner in the end beating out Joe in our double elimination bracket. What makes this event different is that sometimes luck can make all the difference.
1st Place: Don B
2nd Place: Joe W
3rd Place: Paul B
4th Place: Robert W
Unfortunately due to a roof replacement taking place at our shopping center we were not able to shoot the evening league. As soon as we are able to get those folks in for their weekly shoot we will post the scores.
We apologize about the inconvenience.
Good news is we are getting our roof replaced! In the interest of safety we are closing the range side of the store until they finish. We will keep you all posted, it should be finished Wednesday 4/12/2017!
The first week is over and Ben and Jill are leading the pack right out of the gate. Since this is a handicapped league, we will not know the true scores until the 2nd week when the handicaps are established. The handicaps will close these gaps. This should be a fun league to watch the leaderboard.
Richard Talbert also found this league challenging; so you may see him trying to improve his own skills as we shoot the next seven weeks.
We are happy to announce the return of our popular shooting events by popular demand. Our golf ball, bowling pin, and team challenge events will once again fill the range with laughter and camaraderie. In order to have these events take place, we are going to be shutting down the range on Wednesdays at 6:00pm. Instead of thinking about this as an inconvenience, we encourage everyone to sign up for one or more of these events. We have all levels of shooters, from beginners to experienced, and everyone has a great time.
We hope to see you soon at our next event!
After a close last week, Carol finished in first place beating out Dave and Katherine. As of Tuesday morning, Dave needed a perfect round (500) to win and unfortunately fell short by only 2 shots.
Our next League will be coming up soon, so please tell your friends and we hope to see you again in the Spring season.
Check this out…..FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME, WE HAVE A PERFECT 2 TARGET SCORE….Katherine was impressive as she nailed all 50 shots scoring 500; congratulations!
With 1 week to go, Carol, Dave and Katherine are now in the top 3 slots. This could get even more interesting as James has an opportunity to shoot his make-up and Colleen is right on their heels.
We invite the league shooters to join us in the classroom next week after they shoot for awards and refreshments.
Back by popular demand, we are offering free seminars on Tuesdays from 7p to 8p in February and March. Our fun and informative instructors have selected some interesting topics. Get signed up today at proshots.training
