They have practice in the Winter months in the Old Gym. Practices are every Thursday at 6:30pm. In the fall they have their Silhouette season. One of their meets is at Pressy Park. For this event they use .22 rifles. They shoot from behind a line aiming at different sizes of animal silhouettes starting from smallest to biggest as well as from different distances. They are scored on accuracy during this event. Recently, Parker Lefever was honored for shooting “5 Pigs in a Row”, a rare achievement and placed 1st in Light Scope. Nathan Wardyn placed 2nd in Heavy Iron. In the winter they practice indoor during their Indoor Club Shooting season while using Small Bore .22 rifles. This is where they shoot with ea ch other, but do not com- pete with other schools. Then Spring comes and they participate in outdoor trap shooting with shot- guns. This is also scored on accuracy, however the target is a clay pigeon. The next event this year is State Trap which is in Doniphan, NE May 3- 5. Their goal for this year was to encourage safe han- dling of firearms while gaining some experience shooting, as well as encouraging hunting skills. Good luck with the remainder of your season!■ 3
