Mac Carr with Ticket Number 00143 was the winner of the Apple iPad. I would like to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful fundraiser. A special thanks goes out to the Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund and the MidwayUSA Foundation for providing us with the iPad.
We raised an incredible $1,920!!!!… $920 will go toward our 2013 general fund where it will use next year for targets, ammo, and shooting fees. The remaining $1,000 will go into our Scholastic Shooting Trust Endowment Fund where it will be matched 6:1 by Brenda and Larry Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA the online suppliers of shooting, reloading, gunsmithing supplies. That’s $7,000 into our endowment fund, how sweet is that?
The Scholastic Shooting Trust Endowment Fund provides long term sustainable funding to shooting programs like ours. Last year we received a $1,300 grant from the fund and for 2013 we expect to receive over $2,000!
Thanks to everyone who came out today for the drawing, Holiday Party/Block Shoot. It was so great to see everyone again. BTW… the snacks and goodies were just awesome!
Lastly and for those not ready to put their guns away quite yet…
- The York-Adams Game and Fish Association Winter Skeet League starts next Saturday, December 15, 2012… $7.00 for junior shooters.
- Olympic Trap on December 29, 2012 at Keystone Shooting Park. $5.00/round, beginners welcome!

Thanks again and have a great week!
