Five-Man Team Fun Shoot

Skeet-CartoonAttention Skeet Shooters!

It's that time of year again for the Five-Man Team Fun Shoot at Conservation Park, on Sunday, April 2, 2017.

Rules for each team:
One shooter must shoot the .410 bore, one shooter must shoot the 28 gauge, one shooter must shoot the 20 gauge, one shooter must shoot the 12 gauge, and the final shooter can shoot the gauge of their choice.

Please note: the shooter declaring 12 gauge does NOT have to shoot 12 gauge ammo, any smaller gauge is permissible, but there must be one shooter on the squad who is declaring they are shooting the event as the 12 gauge shooter.

There will be two rotations: 10:30am and 1:00pm. Cost is $27 per person or $135 per team

Each team must supply a referee for the other rotation, each team must check in 30 mins prior to shooting, and each referee must also check in 30 mins prior.

Contact Judy Harding at 540-775-4417 or email her at with your team name and members.  Teams are asked to register with Judy two weeks ahead of time, and verify who your referee will be for the other rotation.

Shooting related items you wish to donate as door prizes are greatly appreciated!

Bill Chiswell will be serving lunch to all shooters at 12:00 noon, donations to help with costs will be greatly appreciated.

Hope to see you there! -Lane Hartle
