Winners of the Blackpowder Shoot

Judy Marshall and Taylor Sapergia won Top Mountain Woman and Man titles at the South Cariboo Sportsman Association's event.

The annual Thanksgiving Black Powder Shoot was held at the Ashcroft-Cache gun range on Oct. 10-11 and was once again a great success.

The South Cariboo Sportsman Association’s Shoot drew shooters from every corner of the province with 35 people participating in the shoot this year. A lot of hard work and preparation goes into the process of getting it ready, with most of the work done by a very few. Thanks to Ken and Betty Brown, Letty Hansen, Lorne Rourke and Jim Moon for making it happen.

The Outstanding Frontier People this year were Judy Marshall (Top Mountain Woman) from Chilliwack and Taylor Sapergia (Top Mountain Man) from Prince George. Congratulations to both.

Events over the two days included Rifle (trail), Smooth Bore (trail), Pistol, Shotgun, Archery, Tomahawk (hawk), Knife, Cartridge and a Quigley shoot.

Contestants were awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for each event. The Top Mountain Man and Woman were awarded etched glass take-home trophies and their names will be added to the permanent trophy at the clubhouse.
