"We'd like to have more members. The more members we have the more stuff we can do..."
This past Wednesday, March 28, the Trap Shooting Club held their Annual General Meeting.
Other then the re-instatement of current President, Don Loro, and the Secretary Treasurer, Tom Dooley, the club met, ate and talked about what they would like to accomplish this year.
"We meet once a year. It is our AGM. It's quite informal. We're just a group of people who like to shoot and we try to keep the record straight," commented Secretary Treasurer, Tom Dooley. "Other than that, we just talk about what happened in the year, what our hopes and plans for the next year are and basically, that's it."
One of the issues on the Trap Club's agenda is to fix a trap house of theirs that isn't in the best of shape.
"One of the old trap houses, it's not it very good shape. That was what we talked about. It's going to cost a few bucks," Dooley continued. "We're not that flushed with cash, we've got a bit of money, but anyway, we would like to work at that."
According to Dooley, the club formed from a group of 12 people who get together to shoot on Wednesdays, which he added is great fun for everyone involved. Dooley also encourages new members to join the Trap Shooting Club.
"We'd like to have more members. The more members we have the more stuff we can do. We'd like to encourage some female members because that would round out our club a bit," Dooley said. "We do have a couple of ladies that come. We'd like to encourage the local RCMP to come out and shoot with us. We wouldn't mind picking up a couple of those guys, if they like to shoot." More details can be found through their Facebook page.
Dooley noted that they do have a bit of a high tech device. A voice activated trap release that makes it easier for trap shooters to focus and relieves pressure from other members who might have trouble manually releasing the traps.
