“Dukes Claybusters,” Bonners Ferry High School, and Bonners Ferry Gun Club wish to thank everyone for your support. I’m sure we have enough funds now the 2018-19 year ahead. Thanks again Boundary County, it makes you feel so good to give back and help the young school kids interested in gun safety and a good clean competition shooting sport.
The Clay Busters had four shooters Saturday. Melanie Campbell is improving, Karen Nelson breaking 21s and 22s x 25, Seth Rice 23 and another perfect 25 x 25. Great Shooting. We also had a new shooter, Wyatt Hathaway first time out, broke a 10 x 25 then 17 x 25 and 20 x 25. What great shooting for the first time.
School is starting soon, keep these grades up. Good grades make better scores, concentration is the key. More news — next week 10 a.m. Wednesday; 10 a.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.
Shoot safe and keep your powder dry.
