Group of participants at gun range

THE WEATHER COULD not have been better for the annual fun day and business meeting for members of the Rod and Gun Club, unlike the washout last year.

Members turned out at the gun range in the morning for a competitive pistol shoot using bowling pins and metal plates as targets. Later in the morning, more competition was enjoyed at the Hickory Knob Skeet Range.

Following the outdoor events, members gathered at the Red Barn (aka Long Cane Center) at Hickory Knob for a time of socializing, dinner, awards and a business meeting. Winners of the Handgun Pins and Plates events at the gun range, by category were: 22 caliber – Men - Josh Sandt, Ladies - Marina Skea; Revolvers – Charles Lewis; Low Capacity Magazine Centerfire – Charles Lewis; and High Capacity Magazine Centerfire – Len Azzarano. Winner of the skeet shoot and this

year’s holder of the coveted “traveling belt buckle” was Al Gaer. Al just edged out Gary McCarbery and Steve Blevins for the event.

THE THURMOND LAKE Sail and Power Squadron would like to thank the Captains and Crew of the Fall Color Tour for an absolutely spectacular event. We had 26 boats and over 160 Captains and crew on this adventure to Russell Dam. The weather and scenery were both spectacular. The “ooohs and aaahs” could be heard all the way to Charleston! Thanks to all, without you this event would not have been possible.•
