Event Recap

Welcome to the Big Bonanza Blast!

Where 130 people will get together on Easter Sunday to have a great time shooting clays and hunting Easter eggs full of raffle tickets! Some people were shooting while others found themselves totally enthralled in the hunt for eggs. The whole thing was really fun (as usual).

The good news is that only 1 egg was left behind by the shooters. We found it by itself on station 8 at the end of the day. I guess all of the 10-ticket camo eggs were found…or were they? That’s right, there just might be some leftover eggs rolling around the course. I’m sure some random guy on a Wednesday will find one and throw it away because Easter is obviously over and like… what are these tickets for?

Quick side note: I’d like to say that Dana, myself, Diana, Destiny, and the elusive/very busy Jim Bloomfield would like to thank you all for coming and for making the Big Bonanza Blast our favorite event to host. And I mean it when I say this event doesn’t even feel like work during the shoot… but by 6 PM I collapse of exhaustion when I walk in the door and I’m met by my kids and my lovely wife who smells like hot dogs…talk about crazy pheromones! LOL she’s going to kill me. πŸ™‚

Speaking of hot dogs. They are always well-received, but this time, Dana took the cookies to a new level. Strawberry, Lemon and Chocolate Chip. The perfect Easter cookie combo to wash down all that chili and onions! Don’t these look great? All homemade by euro-pastry-chef Dana Le’amor Von Lillysnitz.

Our squadding-meister, Milton took some pics and videos for you to enjoy too. See below!
