Black Power shooters come out

South Cariboo Sportsman Association has a great turnout for the Thanksgiving Weekend shoot

The Black Powder Shoot held on Thanksgiving Weekend was well attended with 48 shooters from Fort McMurray, Prince George, Kelowna, Kamloops, Penticton, 100 Mile House, Salmon Arm, Lower Mainland as well as Ashcroft.

The weather was fantastic for this Shoot. Saturday night we had a wonderful pot luck supper. Everyone outdid themselves as far as I’m concerned with the food they brought. As for the winners, we had first, second and third for each category: Trail Rifle, Trail Smooth Bore, Blackpowder (B.P.) Shotgun, Hawk, Knife, B.P. Cartridge, Pistol, Cannon small and Cannon large.

Overall winners: South Cariboo Sportsman Association (S.C.S.A.) Top Mountainman – Taylor Sapergia from Prince George with a score of 66

S.C.S.A. Top Mountainwoman – Yvonne Clarke from the Lower Mainland with a score of 46.

Thanks to all who helped make this a success and hope to see you next Thanksgiving. The South Cariboo Sportsman Association would like to thank all of the sponsors and volunteers who helped to make the First Annual Black Powder Shoot a great success.

Blackpowder Director, S.C.S.A.
