Clem best shooter at SCSA clay fun shoot

Dave Clem wins day and night five stand shoots at the South Cariboo Sportsmen Association gun range in Cache Creek.

The South Cariboo Sportsmen Association held a sporting clay fun shoot on Jan. 4 at the Range located above the Cache Creek Landfill.

Thirty-nine shooters participated in the event: 30 participated in the daytime five stand, which included nine novice shooters, and 10 people shot the night five stand.

At the same time a meat shoot was held, and there were 15 meat prizes that people could sign up to shoot for throughout the day.

The day and night five stand shoots were won by Dave Clem from Kamloops, who is ranked as the Number Two sporting clay shooter in Canada. A special thanks to Dave Clem and Dave Carr for their assistance and expertise in setting up and running the shoot with the Trap Range Directors, and the many volunteers who helped out with the setup, running the shoot and clean up.

The concession was busy all day, serving hot drinks and homemade chili on a gorgeous sunny day. Overall it was a great experience. Memberships can be purchased at the Irly store in Ashcroft or the Cache Creek Machine shop.
