    Trap range was destroyed. Most all campers are total losses. Guns and shells scattered all over. Every one got out before storm hit. On our way back to Nebraska with a lot less than we went with. Post pictures when we get home.

    The Okla State Shoot was hit on Friday eve by a EF3 or Ef4 Tornado. This Tornado was at least 1 mile across maybe a little more. It basically destroyed our facility. Our club house looks like a pile of match sticks.There were 40 campsites paid for at the shoot but they weren't full, probably about 35 or so trailers and coach type motor homes. We have 2 trailers that we can't even find a piece of yet. We closed down the facility about 20 min or so and told everyone we could to get out. This is'nt the type storm you can ride out above ground sucessfully very easy. Most everyone did.
    We spent yesterday helping everyone find what personal items we could and getting our out of state shooters on their way home.
    In the comming days we will work on getting everyone what is owed to them entry wise ect. I am headed out there in a few to start again today.
    Yesterday was about helping everone with their stuff, soon it will be a salvage effort to try and see what is left for us.
    Thanks Larry Parsons President Oklahoma Trapshooters Association
