March 7, 2010

Today wrapped up eight weeks of family fun, shooting clay targets at the local gun club. We were shocked when our good buddy Brent Short (yes- the potato gun guy) asked us if we wanted to join his team and participate in the Roseburg Rod and Gun Club’s Winter Trap League. Now Brent is a pretty serious trap shooter and we all came to the conclusion that he must be tired of winning if he’s asking us to form a team with him! Well it also happens that Brent is a very generous person and what he really wanted was to give other folks a chance to win a team trophy. So, we thought we could help him bring his team’s score down and were happy to do our part. Well as the weeks went by and score cards were posted, it appeared that Brent’s team, Premier Homes, was doing fairly well and in contention for a first place trophy in Division C. Apparently, it was too much for Brent to take so, he “accidentally” cut his hand with a circular saw at work one day and ended his participation on the team with a couple of weeks left to shoot. However, his feeble attempt to sabotage the team’s score went unnoticed thanks to some good shooting by the other members of the team. The result was Team Premier Homes walked out of the clubhouse at the end of the season with first place trophies! Although our shooting wasn’t the best, we had a great time on the range as a family. A family that shoots together stays together!
