Running a successful shoot just doesn't happen - it takes countless hours of planning, coordination and a dedicated group of volunteers. Pictured below are some of the people responsible for this year's shoot - it's a mix of club members, club shooters, visiting shooters and the Atlantic Provinces board members. It's a great example of everyone working together to ensure that the job gets done. Congratulations and Thanks to the Highland Gun Club for hosting a great shoot.
