Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club would like to invite all shooters to come to our club Sunday March 11, 2007 at 8am for a Benefit shoot for one of our members, Jack Jones.

Jack is in need of a heart transplant and we are holding this shoot to help him with his medical expenses.

Jack is a long time member of our club and a good friend to many. Members from Lynnwood Gun Club, Escondido Fish & Game, and Miramar Trap Range (San Diego Shooting Sports) have offered to help with this event.

If you are a drag racing fan, you see Jack’s likeness at every major NHRA Drag Racing event. Yes, the trophy known as the “WALLY” is actually the likeness of Top Gas Champion Jack Jones; Wally Parks asked Jack to pose for this trophy in 1969.

At the event, we will have Trap, 5 stand and a pot shoot.
5 stand is a 5.00 donation for 25 clays
Trap is a 4.50 donation for 25 clays
Pot shoot is a 3.00 donation for each game
There is a 10.00 gate fee donation that will include a barbeque lunch.

We have received many donations to raffle and auction off, Here is a partial list of some of the items donated so far

Verona semi-auto Shotgun (winner will need to complete a DROS to transfer it to them)--
Nikon 3X9X40 riflescope--
Custom made reloading bench--
Certificate for a shotgun stock refinish by Mike Scott (A 400.00 value)--
Certificate for a dinner for two at Barona Oaks Steakhouse, at the Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino--
Browning Shooters Vests.
We still have several local gun shops and clubs donating items as well as individual members and friends.


We hope that you can make it out to have some fun, food, and prizes but most of all to help a good friend.

For a map to get to the club please visit our web site at www.lemongrovegunclub.com

You may also contact me at [email protected] please drop the x’s except in cox.net

I can't make it down there for that weekend, but I met Jack and really liked him. Is there some way I can make a donation without making it down there? My thoughts and prayers are with Jack and Lori.

Jack is the close Dragster with his hand up in the victory sign, If I remember correctly this was his 1st National title win.

For those who do not know him, Jack Jones is one of the finest gentlemen of the sport I have had the privlege of meeting. He has given more back to the sport of trap shooting and game bird hunting than most people have dreamed of. His deepest sorrow is that he can no longer participate in the sport that he loves with the people that he loves! Let's get together and give him a chance to once again be a part of the group rather than a bysitter. It shouldn't take much, a day amongst your peer's supporting one of your own and having a good time? You don't know him? B.S. he's one of your own, it could be you!
