The Claybusters individual scores did not place 1st or 2nd in the Spokesman-Review shoot, but they won 1st in the team competition out of 22 teams. What a great effort, something the team members will always have to remember.
The Camas Prairie competition is a 10 week shoot ending this next weekend March 14, 2021. The Claybusters are only 12 targets behind the 1st place team holding on to second place. I know the Claybusters will give it their best effort as they always do.

As you can see, Wally took advantage of us older shooters as well as the younger ones, LOL. Great shooting Wally!
The Annie Oakleys went well again as the Ladies Campbell gang finally cooled off a little and let a few others shooters win. What great Fun!
I thank all the Claybusters and the club members who shot in the cold, tough and windy weather to support our gun club and let the Northwest know where Bonners Ferry is…
Shoot Safe and keep your powder dry.
