Last weekend, the 2nd Annual Ironman Shoot took place with 57 shooters participating. With shooters coming in from both the lower and upper peninsulas, this annual shoot which will take place the first weekend after Labor Day every year, has become a destination known statewide.
The 2019 Ironman Shoot was Michigan’s largest multi-venue shoot this year, made possible by our great team of member helpers:
Teresa Raab and Patty Kinkema (Kitchen)
Sandra Meyer (Check In and Tabulation)
Chris Meyer (Scoring Skeet)
Tim Szewczuk and Darrel Kuiper (Pulling and Scoring 5 Stand)
Rick Croton and Chuck Raab (Pulling and Scoring 5 Stand)
Justin Somsel (Oversee Sporting Clays)
Larry Laxton and. Ryan Kinkema (Set up)
Richard Rogers and Tom Anderson (Grounds)
We heard some really great comments from some of our participants.
“Club looks great!” “Fantastic target presentation.” “Best sporting clays course in Northern Michigan.” “Very friendly and knowledgeable help.”
“You people know how to put on a shoot!”
This is thanks to the above recognized helpers. Without them this event wouldn’t have happened! Thank them when you see them.

All ties were determined by a draw of cards.
All venues are open for shooting so come by and take advantage of our good fall weather.
We are looking for assistance in sporting clay course take down and general clean up and winterization toward the middle of October. We will send an email to members when the date and time has been determined. If you haven’t volunteered yet this year this is your opportunity to pitch in at your club.
Always shoot safe, straight and often! Bring your family and friends with you to the club for the total enjoyment of the shooting sports.
