    The Spokane Gun Club is hosting the first Annual Harvest Grand - October 1,2, and 3. Friday is 300 Doubles with pink targets provided by Western Flyer with proceeds going to support cancer research. Saturday is D,S, and H and Sunday is S and H. I'm not sure of the starting time Friday but I plan to be there before 9 AM.

    It was a very good shoot with about 14 full squads in attendance. Friday and Saturday were sunny and warm while Sunday was overcast with a couple of raindrops but no wind. Saturday Doubles event had added money sponsored by RCBS and I got lucky on the 3rd Lewis Class payout. A good time was had by all; thanks to the PITA staff and the Spokane Gun Club for this first PITA shoot in Eastern Washington.

    Thanks to all of the people who came out to shoot, volunteer and donate!

    Together, the Spokane Gun Club, White Flyer Targets and the Pacific International Trapshooting Association we were able to raise $ 2,600.00 for Susan G. Komen of Eastern Washington on Friday October 1, 2010 with our first annual Shoot for a Cure trapshooting event.

    White Flyer Targets very generously donated pink targets and the Spokane Gun Club donated the use of their club and trap machines for this event in which shooters were able to compete in 3 doubles events. We had shooters come from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia, Alberta, California and Nevada to participate and we’re happy to report that the event was a huge success.

    RCBS provided added money for the Saturday Doubles event and we had not only great weather but a lot of good shooting. PITA gained 25 new or returning members and at least 15 of those cross-registered to ATA.

    I heard a lot of positive comments throughout the weekend and we're looking forward to an even bigger and better shoot next year.

    Jen

    p.s. This isn't actually the first PITA shoot in Eastern Washington. We were there many years ago. As a matter of fact, the Inland Empire used to be a PITA shoot. This was back in the 30's and 40's though.

    The important thing however, is that shooters were given targets to shoot. Whether PITA or ATA, the clubs need to throw targets and keep their shooters happy and shooting in order to stay alive. Each of our associations depends on the success of our clubs and we need to do all we can to support them.

    The You Tube presentation was excellent but should have included scenes of the Washington State Hall of Fame which includes many prominent PITA regulars.

    The Hiyu Indian display of historic trophies would also have been interesting.

    And, don't forget the most lavish redone lavatories in the trapshooting world.
