I know! Can you believe we had that many?

What a crazy Bananaza Blast this month.  120 people came out for just the morning flight and let’s say, we were glad to see that long line of shooters out the door.  I know Malina was glad (hear the sarcasm?) since she was doing the squadding.  Things got a little hectic for her but she did a great job.

What the heck?

Right before we launched everyone at 8 AM, we realized that all of the scoresheets were printed with 14 stations instead of 15.  Whoops!  That wasn’t the end of it.  During signups, one of the cash registers wouldn’t open and the software for the card readers wouldn’t allow us to add more target cards.  Luckily, we were able to pull it together like the A-team and deliver a great shoot…even though the starting time was 8:15 instead of 8:00.  Thanks for being patient!

Tubular Tunes!

Everyone was really enjoying a beautiful day of targets, food, and sunshine.  Oh and we also had some 80’s music over the new PA system donated by our good friend, Robert Danelen.  Thanks, Robert!

The Big Bonanza Blast isn’t your regular Sporting Clays event.  It’s more of a party with some Sporting Clays thrown in for fun.  It’s amazing how some Go-Go’s and a little Devo can bring a smile to everyone’s face.

Who was the Top Hot Dog?

Want to know who won the event?  I’m going to spoil it before you can scroll down to see the table.  Mitchell Garrett shot a 90×100.  The only shooter in the 90s this day.  Congratulations, Mitchell.  It must be the steady diet of quail eggs.  Let’s sell them in the pro-shop!

Honorable Mention goes to Keith Shapiro who shot an 84×100.  Congratulations, Keith! Keep it up.

Here are the scores…
