JGC: Cold temps make shooting 'changeling'

The monthly registered trap shoot for Jan. 14 found weather conditions as they were forecast; sun with temperatures between 10 and 16 degrees Fahrenheit and brisk winds. This weather made shooting conditions “changeling.” The winds and cold were not as bothersome as the sun. The moving sun at the shooters backs cast shadows that made seeing close to impossible. Those shooters that did not show up for this monthly event were wise!


Least bothered by adverse conditions was our elder senior shooter, Hank Masters, who won the singles event and our junior shooter, Jarred Markovich, who won the handicap event.

Registered shoot results:

Singles Event (7 participants): “B” Class Shooters, Hank Masters, 88/100 (winner); Mal Menzies, 74/100. “C” Class Shooters, Fred Wilson, 72/100; Jarred Markovich, 70/100 (junior shooter); Dennis Travis, 68/100; Fred Bergander, 63/100 and Anita Watts, 60/100 (women shooter).

Handicap Event (4 participants): Short yardage, Jarred Markovich, 20 yards, 65/100 (winner); Fred Bergander, 20 yards, 52/100. Mid Yardage, Mal Menzies, 21 yards, 50/100 and Hank Masters, 23 yards, 47/100.
