Big Bonanza Recap
178 happy shooters attend! Unbelievable! What a great number to see at our first event for 2018. Thanks, everyone! Overall, the event was pretty “hitch-less” meaning it ran smoothly for that number of shooters. 122 shooters were in the 8 AM round which was a record number for first flight attendance. I have to say, the response to the new club was great and it sure feels good to throw events again. Woohoo!
Sighting 1: Redlands Shooting Park owners, Allison and Ian Rangel came out for some Bonanza fun. It was great that you guys were able to make one of these events, especially on a Sunday. Thanks for coming and we’re looking forward to the Big Bonanza Blast – “Down South” edition coming in March.
Sighting 2: Pacific Sporting Arms owner, Big Bonanza Blast sponsor and good friend John Herkowitz took time out from making snowmen in Michigan to warm his bones in the California heat… yes, heat. It was 86 that day. Burrr…. 🙂 Also, John went on to blow up the HOA position by shooting 90×100. Congratulations, John and it was great to see ya!
Sighting 3: Mark Nelson! It was great to see you, Mark. Looking forward to shooting some Argentina with you real soon.
Thank you, Diana and Dana, for putting on a nice lunch under “different” conditions. You guys did a great job and I know everyone enjoyed the lunch.
Jim Bloomfield dusted off the camera and came up with some great shots of the first-flight shooters. Check out a few here and see the rest on our facebook page here. Thanks Jim for all the help that day and of course, the awesome photos and video.
Here’s a list of the event winners. The entire list is broken into groups of 20 so be sure to scroll to the bottom of the scoresheet table to cycle through all the shooters. We’d break the Internet if we posted all 178 on the same page.
It’s great to be back and it was great to see everyone again. We had fun and we’ll do it again real soon. Thank you all for coming and be sure to keep your head on the stock. – Cory
