    Rv Spots available at no cost to the shooters.

    High over all Champ and RU on the 400 handicap.

    I believe that the "prez" got nice buckles for this.

    This is taken right in front of the clubhouse.....a few years ago. We are looking due West. Now, rotate 90 degrees right and the Butte goes away..the only thing left to look at, is the target in the sky. This is the reason that the scores are consistantly high. That and the target setting. Anyone that has shot Great Falls can attest to that.

    Hope you can make it.

    Here is the pic taken more years ago......and it was a hazzy day. You can still see the target well, even tho the pic is lacking in clarity

    Great Falls = consistently well set targets and ideal blue sky background......I'll attest to that. I see you're having a two & a half day shoot this year? I'll be there.

    Anyone who has never shot targets at the Great Falls Club should make every effort to attend. Nothing but SKY for a backdrop. The only downside to Gt Falls would be NO EXCUSES for a miss.

    A well maintained club, nice targets and run by a bunch of friendly shooters.

    I understand the State Fair is going on in Great Falls now, will that be over by the time of the Fall Harvest Handicap Shoot? I'm wondering if there's anything else going on in town that might make it difficult to get a motel?
