Our winter pellet league wrapped up on March 17th with the handicap match. Winners were Al Butterbaugh, who had the high scratch score of 2440 points out of a possible 3000, followed closely by Rick Richter with a score of 2417. Most improved shooter award went to Dennis Hedin, who improved his average by 43 points over the ten weeks. And Winner of the Handicap match was Carolyn Butterbaugh, who shot 20 points over her normal average. Congratulations to all our shooters and we hope to see you again next December.

The spring .22 league will begin with a sight in night on April 22nd at 5:30, to be followed by ten weeks of shooting for score. Any .22 rifle can be used and they shoot at steel buffalo silhouettes. Come out on Wednesday nights for some fun shooting and camaraderie.

Weather permitting, we will begin trap shooting at 6 p.m. on April 14th. We are open to the public on Tuesday nights and usually have a good group of shooters, both members and non-members. In addition, our club will be hosting high school trap teams which are being formed from local schools sponsored by SCOPE and the DNR. Plans have not been completed yet, so no further information is available at this time.

A class of the hayward Hunter Education program will be using the rifle range on Saturday, April 11th from 9 a.m. to noon and also members of the LCO Hunter Education class will be using both our rifle and trap ranges on May 16th, Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please note this on your calendars so we don’t have any conflicts over use of the range. The ranges will be open to our members after 1 p.m.

Don’t forget to attend the club swap meet on May 23rd from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Reserve a table for $20 and get rid of the stuff you don’t use any more but don’t want to throw away. All proceeds go to our scholarship fund. Contact Sheila at 715-865-2506 to reserve a table.

Since our October meeting, we have accepted applications for membership from Max Thompson and Blaise Guzzo, both of Hayward. Welcome.
