A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers who made this event possible.

We want to wish you all a Happy New Year as we look forward to all the fun events in 2020.

Winter Interclub Results – Dec 15th – Otter Valley Rod & Gun Club

Posted on

Today, Dec 15th, was the third Southern Counties Winter Interclub at Otter Valley Rod and Gun Club.   We had home field advantage today and that seemed to work to our benefit despite the weather conditions.  We started out the day with heavy snow fall and windy conditions.  Eventually the weather cleared and we were all very happy to see the sun shine and blue sky.

A big congratulations to John Konishofer and Ken Allan who were high gun for Otter Valley.  Both shooters shoot a 46 in almost white out conditions.  We were all amazed to watch these shooters make graceful moves on targets in such fierce weather conditions.

 

Below are today’s club scores:

Otter Valley = 226 = 5 points = Currently 2nd place overall

Glencoe = 224 = 4 points = Currently 1st place overall

Verscholye = 222 = 3 points = Currently 5th place overall

Crumlin = 221 = 2 points = Currently 4th place overall

St Thomas = 220 = 1 points = Currently 3rd place overall

 

 

The High Daily shooter was Wayne Ehgoetz with a 47.

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event run smoothly.

See you at the next Winter Interclub Sunday, Jan 12th at Crumlin Sportsman Association.
