To view the shoot results, simply click on the name of the shoot under the Scores menu. Hits 500+ Visitors


Only 15 days ago, I announced the debut of, and today we exceeded 500 visitors.  Now granted, some of those visits are me, checking out the appearance of the website after I’ve made some additions or changes and then publishing the site to the hosting company, but the majority of those webpage hits are you, the skeet shooters of Virginia.  I’m glad to see so many of you checking out the new pages, the photo albums, the results from recent shoots, the schedule of upcoming shoots, and all the other pages I’ve created.  And I appreciate all the positive feedback about the new site, and all the help I’ve received from Jeff Key, Becky Myers and everyone else who’s offered photos, files or suggestions to make it even better.  I look forward to one day having more visitors than Bob Myers has targets!  :)

With heartfelt thanks, Lane Hartle
