High School Trap Team " Dukes Claybusters” are in 2nd place out of 22 teams after five weeks of competition in the Camas Prairie tournament. This is a 10-week event, only six birds out.

The Claybusters are in first place in the Big Sky after six weeks and first place in the Spokesman Review youth division. The Claybusters, shot week seven last week, but don't have the results back yet.

The weather at the club has been very cold the last two weeks at 19 degrees with the wind chill at minus nine degrees. All team members participated. What a great group of students.

The Big Sky and Spokesman Review competition ends this coming weekend. The team is hoping they can end with first place for 2021. Whether they take first or not, the coaches, Lonny and Ron, are so very proud of all members of the Dukes Claybusters for their dedication to good grades, integrity and the sport of trap shooting, as well as being tough enough to shoot in this weather.

The adult team isn't faring as well as the Claybusters, as far as placing. They are third place in the Big Sky, eight in the Spokesman Review Division III and fifteenth in the Camas Prairie. The Women's division in the Spokesman are in tenth place out of 23. The BF Club sure could use more women and men shooters.

Paul Carelli won A Class with 21+19=40X50, Dean Nelson won B Class with 17+20=37X50.

The club had four Annie Oakleys, which wasn't quite as much fun as usual due to the cold wind.

Here's wishing the Claybusters the best of luck in breaking targets this last weekend in the Big Sky and Spokesman Review events. May the Great Spirit be with you!!

Shoot Safe and Shoot Straight.
