- A very nice day at the MGC traps. While some of the guys drove through rain on the way there, others didn’t, and by the 10 o’clock start time it was gone and you could see the clearing line just to the west. The day ended up perfect with sunshine and light winds.
The first squad out Dennis Minks and Scott Steffen posted 47’s. On the 2nd squad out Mad Dog Gary Pederson set the bar coming in with a 48. Nice shooting guys. And, a 48 held through the day but 3 more of them came in. Scott Messenger had 2 of them and Tom Sletta, mumbling something about sheep to shear, fish to fry and chickens to pluck, came in with one too. You’ll have to hear it from him what that’s all about. Way to go Scott and Tom. And so it went.
But, besides the shooting, there was food to take care of. As in making it disappear. Today was the Snowbird Jackpot and there was some great food to enjoy. In addition to the bone in spiral cut ham,there was a ground beef cheese dip, cocktail wieners, bear sausage and crackers, caramel apple slices, pasta casserole, and if that wasn’t enough there were desserts. We had Jimmy Brand’s World Famous Lemon Meringue Pie, Hot Lips Demulling’s melt in your mouth cookies, Jimmy Bowen’s Caramel Pecan Cherry Chocolate Cake, and Peggy Sletta’s gooey Brownies. Shooting was secondary….the food alone was worth the trip. Many thanks to everyone who brought a dish to pass.
Next Saturday, October 26th, MGC will be hosting their annual Halloween Jackpot. Shoot a 25 straight in either singles or handicap and you’ll take home a delicious pumpkin or apple pie to share….or not to share. Top score of the day will score a huge Caramel Apple Crunch pie. This will be in addition to the regular Daily Lewis Class payout. We’ll have 10 pies to give away….25’s or next best score. One to a shooter.
