Annual Members Meeting:
The Annual Members Meeting will be on Wednesday March 3rd at 7:00 PM, this meeting will be preceded by the Spring League Team Captains meeting at 6:00 PM. We will need to elect three BOD members and conduct other business as the members deem necessary. Nominations are now open for the open BOD positions and nomination forms are now posted in the club. Terry and Mary Jacobsen will be running the Spring League. They plan on starting team shooting on Wednesday March 10, 2021. There will be at least 48 teams and the league will run for 12 weeks. Please list your team members on the sign-up sheets as soon as possible if you can’t get to the club please call Jim Burman @ 468-2751 or Mary Jacobson @ 801-560-3878 and leave your team information.
Speaking of leagues, we are going to have at least 4 leagues this year; Spring singles, summer ladies league a summer doubles league and a fall handicap league. Check our new page web at Great Falls Trap and Skeet Club.com for starting times and dates.
This year we have installed two new Pat Trap, trap machines (we stepped back from 4 machines due to loss of revenue due to Covid 19).
We have three registered shoots this year The Spring Thing in May, State Shoot in July and Harvest Handicap in August.
We will be sponsoring AIM (Academics Integrity and Marksmanship) youth shooting program again this year. The team is open to anyone who was 22 years old or younger, as of 9/1/2020. The object of the program is to introduce youths to the sport of trap shooting with an emphasis on safety, sportsmanship, team building and citizenship. If you know of anyone who is interested have them contact Jim Burman or Bud Lee. These donations will lessen the cost of shooting for each student shooter. AIM practice will be on Saturdays starting April 3rd at 1:00PM.
With regards to the shooting ranges. In the fall the rifle shooters get upset when pistol shooters are tying up the range and at other times the pistol shooters are upset. We have looked at several work arounds, but all are quite expensive for the time being we ask that everyone work together to split up the available range time.
Thanks, and see you at the Club,
Jim Burman, Secretary
