Last Month's Events
Buster Day - True Pair
Shoot

This shoot is dedicated to honoring Buster Day, Don's Dad and Josh's Grandpa. Buster, an avid hunter and clay shooter owned the land that Silver Willow is located on.

If you haven't noticed it before, there is a memorial plaque which is located between the Green Course station 10 and the duck pond. We are always happy to see how many shooters come out every year in honor of Buster.
This year we had a shoot off between Shawn Bosse & Ken Kupsch. Shawn was the runner up & Ken was this years winner with a HOA of 112/120.
Ken not only received the honor as top shooter, he also was presented with an insulated cooler with the Silver Willow Logo & Shoot Name on the lid, from Don Day.
No Whining, No Crying Shoot

It was a great day for a double shoot. After the Buster Day Shoot, Josh decided to test the shooters' abilities by setting up for the challenging
No Whining, No Crying Shoot.
It consisted of 80 targets that were, as many shooters said "Very Humbling."
If you missed them, there was No Whining, No Crying allowed!!
Fun was had by all at both shoots.
Josh & Jack did a great job setting up for both shoots!
The winning continued for Ken Kupsch. Right after shooting a great round on the Buster Day Shoot, Ken took the HOA at the No Whining No Crying Shoot. Congratulations to Ken Kupsch with a HOA of 46/80

CADENCE IN SHOTGUN SPORTS

AUTHOR: LUTHER CUTTS, HEAD INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 3), COMPETITOR

Cadence is a noun used to describe rhythm, beat or measure of events, particularly where there is a pattern or sequence.  It is an important concept in music, many of the performing arts as well as the martial arts.  It might therefore be surprising to some people that is also an important concept in shooting a shotgun.
