    Naperville Sportsman's Club held it's annual Handicap Championship on Thursday night (6/9). It's a one-night event, consisting of 100 targets shot 25-each from the 21, 23, 25, and 27 yard lines. Trophies are awarded to the HOA champion, and winner and runner-up for each yardage.

    It was tough sledding on Thursday night, with temps in the low 50's, gusty winds and a threat of rain all night. By contrast it was in the high 90's the prior 3 days.

    The Sportsman's Grill was running with brats, polish sausage, sides and dessert for everyone to enjoy.

    Trophies were cast bronze Eagles.

    Trapshooters.com regular Joe Kuhn led the way and took the HOA trophy. Jay Spitz (spitter) also captured a trophy.

    Yardage Group winners were Wayne Willson (21), Scott Thompson (27), Steve Pfister (23), and Bob Seetin (25).

    Yardage Group runner-up trophies went to Mike Moore (27), Jay Spitz (25), Tom Clark (23, Bob Ash (21).

    Bruce -

    The range is located in downtown Naperville, just west of Naperville Central High School.

    It is a public range (run by the Naperville Park District). The Naperville Sportsman's Club is a separate entity, and you do not need to be a member of the club to shoot at the range. The club has an operating agreement with the park district to assist in running the range.

    The range is open Sunday at noon until 4 pm (we can shoot until 6 pm if it's busy enough) and Thursday night from 6 pm to 10 pm. We are open 12 months a year, the only exceptions are holidays that fall on a Thursday or Sunday. We are required to shoot steel shot ammunition, which is available for purchase at the range (or you can bring your own).

    You can checkout our website for more info (posted above). If you plan to come out, let me know and I'll make sure we have a welcoming committee ready.

    Scott

    Congrats to Joe Kuhn for HOA and to all their individual accomplishments. Nice pics and nice spread for the Gun Club. I heard the shooting in southern Wheaton last night.

    Joe,

    You be careful, You might put your eye out with that thing!

    Not sure what it is, but it seems to work for you.

    Joe--Talk about proving what that one-eyed shooter with two eyes open can do. Who needs that Mach One right? LOL--Matt

    Nice shooting to Jay and the rest as well. Great to put faces with names and trophies to boot.

    The targets were inconsistent heights and it was cold. Shot in the second squad and didn't think my score would hold. The weather stayed about the same throughout the night. Organizers did a great job. Thanks.
