Dorman Range – Sporting Clays (Aug 27th)

 There is Sporting Clays on Saturday, August 27, this being the 4th Saturday of the month at the Dorman Range facility.
You can shoot either the morning (50 birds+a few extras), or the afternoon (50 birds+a few extras) or both.
Price is $12.50 for a single session, or $25.00 for the whole day.
(If you want to just shoot the lower 5 stations due to walking problems, that can be arranged.)
Registration will start at 9:00, Shooting starts at 10:00
Lunch will be available for $5.00
12ga and 20ga shells are available.
Pass this message on to your fellow shooters as my e-mail address list is not very complete, especially for other Clubs on the Island.
We welcome new shooters that have never shot sporting clays before, and we will help them as much as possible.
If you don’t have a shooting group, we will arrange to put you onto a squad that can guide you through the process.
We want you to have fun; never mind the score!!  And we have “Muligans”, if you miss it, you get to shoot it over again.
New shell order –
We will be submitting an order for shells to Prairie Shot (Score) about the last week in September.
The price for ALL sizes and speeds (12ga and 20ga) will be $64 per case (10 boxes per case) plus 5% GST, plus shipping directly to our range (estimated to be $3.60 per case), for a total cost of approximately $71.00 per case (taxes all in, delivered to the range).  Delivery can be 1 to 3 weeks (depending on whether we have a custom order) after the order is placed.
This price is about $4 per case cheaper than our order in April.
We will need your money before the order is placed (cash or cheque; cheque will be held until the invoice is submitted to us) AND your contact phone number or your e-mail address.  We will have the sign-up list at the range every shooting day, or you can respond to this e-mail.
Cheers to our shooting fraternity.

French Creek Fishing Derby August 19th – the 21st

The annual French Creek fishing derby is fast approaching and the proceeds from the event go towards the Marion Baker Fish Hatchery in French Creek. Last year’s derby generated a $5,700 donation to the hatchery.

The derby starts on Friday 19th August and finishes around noon on Sunday 21st August with presentations outside the French Creek pub in the afternoon.

Why not come down and wet your line?

Tickets are $10 per rod, and it’s not necessary to fish to get in on the action and the fundraiser for Marion Baker Hatchery and there are lots of prizes available.

Tickets are available now at the French Creek Harbour Store and at French Creek Marine Pub.

For more info, call Russ Mosher at 250-248-3713, ext. 1.

Thank you to everyone for all their hard work and effort in organizing and to all of you who support this wonderful event !
