Youth Top Gun

        When the club started the youth shooting program two years ago it was decided that there would be a youth TOP GUN  title. The title is awarded each year to the youth shooter with the highest score for the year. The 2011 TOP GUN was Brad Sandroni and Luke Allen is the 2012 TOP GUN.   

       In order to qualify, the shooter needs to be no older than 17 years of age at the time they shoot.
There are Kuneytown Sportsmens Club Official .22 caliber rim fire rifle Youth Shoot Targets in the range shed.
Shooting is six shots off hand at 50 feet and six shots any position ( sitting, kneeling, prone, or bench rest) at 50 yards.  Once the target is shot  it gets posted on the Youth Shoot Top Gun leader board located in the range shed. If someone scores higher than the target posted, the higher score gets placed over that target and becomes the new leader. At the end of the year whoever has the highest score is named the Youth Top Gun. That person is given a laminated certificate with their actual target on the back while another laminated certificate is on display inside the range shed for years to come.
These shoots can be done at any time during the year but do require a club member to be present. So take a youth shooting at the club range. They could be the 2013 YOUTH TOP GUN.

How about we start a Kuneytown Sportsmens Club TOP GUN open to all members in say .22 rimfire rifle and pistol for starters? If  interested leave a yes comment on this post.

Results from the January 19th 2013 Squirrel Derby

The first squirrel derby of 2013 was a record breaker. We had 42 people, including seven youths signed up, which is the most ever. 101 squirrels were  weighed in, which is also the most ever. 12 people got their limit of six squirrels. 21 people weighed in squirrels. The winners were:
Heaviest bag   1st place    Chris Brand 6 squirrels 8.66 pounds
                        2nd place    Kelby Karlsen  6  squirrels  8.56 pounds
                        3rd place   Ed  Vanfleet   6  squirrels  8.55 pounds
Lunker Squirrel     Chris  Brand  1.65 pounds

The club provided chili and squirrel stew for all those who showed up at the weigh in and it was good.

Watch this site as the club has plans of  scheduling one or two additional derbies before the season ends. We  also plan on adding lunker rabbit  to the derby. The club THANKS all those who participated in the derby. Special thanks to Bob Stuck, Scott Ridley and Tom Grasek for running it, as well as the three young ladies that helped with the weigh in.
