Trees, Trees & More Trees
The first part of May, Jack & Dale worked hard at planting trees on the Blue Course. There are new spruce trees between Stations 2 & 5 , and Spruce - Mountain Ash trees between Station 11 & 14. The weather caused a few delays but in the end the 75 trees were all planted within a week.
Great Job guys!!
AUTHOR: DENEAN TOMLIN, SILVER WILLOW INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 1), COMPETITOR AND LADYGUN (@CALGARYLADYGUNS)
Growing up on a farm, I was exposed to guns, hunting and sport shooting at an early age. My first shooting experience was shooting bottle caps off of the bushes with a .22 rifle from a picnic table. My dad took my brother and me out for an afternoon of fun and to learn a little gun safety. A few years later I worked on Saturday mornings (because I was told to) at the local trap club, sitting in the bunker setting clay targets for the shooting league. It wasn’t until 30 years later, on a beautiful day in September when I was introduced to Sporting Clays. I was invited on a date to join an experienced shooter and give it a go. The reason I point out those two facts ladies, “on a date” and “experienced shooter”, is to illustrate that there were so many reasons to be nervous. So many things running through my mind…guns are fun but kinda scary, what if I make a fool of myself, what do I wear, I think I like this guy…yikes!
