    Spokane GC vs: Portland GC 1940

    This old ad reminded me of the days when the members of the two gun clubs traveled to the other city for an annual competition.

    There was not much sleep in the Pullman cars and lots of activity in the Club Car. Once, we at Spokane met the boys from Portland at the train station with a hay wagon to take the travelers out to the club. Good fun when the Spokane Mayor, Art Meehan and the Oregon Governor were both active trapshooters.

    That was when Jimmy Robinson picked the "All-American" team, most of us shot Mod. 12's and we shot mainly for the camaraderie and friendships involved.
