    Fennville Rod and Gun's 2011 Grand Weekend started off with Bang Friday afternoon with lots of people showing up and lots of shooting going on with protections being shot on trap feilds one and two, even when trap two breaks down Fennville doesnt skip a beat thou they just move over to trap three and keep on shooting , great idea Fennville in putting in a third field this year it kept the shoot going strong and everybody having a great time i cant even remember how many protections were shot but i do know there was 31 teams in the 50 bird pick your partner Calcutta but before we get to those results lets talk food and see some random pics of Friday Night as always the food at Fennville was great with burgers and hotdogs on the grill ,pasta salad,potato salad,baked beans,fresh veggies,chips and dip and tons of desserts and now some pics before we get to the Calcutta board

    All,

    Thanks to everyone for coming out and making this years GRAND a huge success. The weekend didn't quite go as planned due to a machine issue and restricting us to two ranges. Really appreciate all the shooters being patient with us as rounds were sometimes delayed.

    Thanks to all the volunteers that helped all week long preparing the grounds, resecuring light pole on field 2, moving flag pole, setting up tents, shooting sheets, food, etc to make the weekend move along smoothly. I was really impressed to see how much got done from the weekend before to the Friday Night.

    As everyone has enjoyed the pictures, lets put into persepective how much shooting actually took place over the GRAND weekend:

    - 39 Protections (over half averaging 8 teams) (Appr. 5760 birds)

    - 23 5 man Teams (46 trap rounds) (Appr. 5750 birds)

    - 4 Calcuttas - (32 teams, 19 teams, 15 teams, 25 teams) (Appr. 4550 birds)

    - Skeet Tournament (12 Shooters) (Appr. 600 birds)

    - 5 open Rounds (Appr. 500 birds)

    - 2 Three Guns up, 2 Back Doors (Appr. 250 birds)


    All in all, a rough estimate of 17,400 birds were thrown over the 3 days of shooting. Really impressive for only two trap fields and 1 Skeet field operating!!! Hats off to the Fennville Rod and Gun Club, Everyone volunteering throughout the weekend, and all the shooters for showing up to allow this to happen!!!

    Looking forward to another great weekend during the Walleye Shoot. Keep eyes on the existing thread! And we WILL be running three ranges that weekend!!! :D

    Also, like others have said, great to see Ed N. back to the circuit and shooting. Has been awhile since we have seen you at Fennville and was great to have you back!

    Thanks again to everyone showing up this weekend!!

    Eric

    F.R.G.C Rangemaster!
