The trap club will be open for the alumni basketball/volleyball tournaments being held this weekend. We will also be having a DJ on Saturday night. Welcome back everyone who is participating.
Previously we stated on the website that there was open shooting on Saturdays throughout March. We are sorry for the mistake. Open shooting does not start until April. The calendar has been updated to reflect these changes. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused but the trap houses are not ready for action yet. Coming soon I will post pictures from the Bar Stool Race last weekend.
Are you getting cabin fever? I know I sure am… Can’t wait for the warm sun to shine down on me and of course shoot my shot gun. This year trap will start April 25th with the practice night on April 18th. If you would like to shoot on Saturday in March or April come on out we will be open. We would love to see new faces out there so bring a friend.
This year’s annual meeting will be held April 4th at 7:00pm. We would love to see all of you there. We are looking for volunteers for a cook. Let us know if you are interested.

The league scores are updated on the website for the last night of league shooting, Most of you know that the league has been truncated from 18 weeks to 16 weeks because of rain. I have updated the calendar and changed the banquet date to August 30th. Also check back next week for info about our Rock the Range concert after the July chicken shoot.
Sorry that there have not been any scoring updates on the site for the first night of league. I updated my computer this winter and in the process updated the Ruby runtime library that my scoring program code is based on. I then proceeded to make the necessary changes to make my program work properly. Everything was perfect, there will be new features I can implement with the updated Ruby runtime and I could simplify some spots of my 4500 lines of code, or so I thought. While the program was technically working and did a fine job at keeping track of members and the league scoring aspect, I seemed to have forgotten to check the compatibility of the reporting capabilities with the new runtime environment. That didn’t work out so well. Some libraries I was dependent upon are incompatible with Ruby 1.9.3 and there are no plans to make them. Well to wind this up without writing a book, I am working as fast as possible to update my code base to fix all the reporting problems. I sure hope to have a fix before Thursday night league, if not then I will have shooting yards figured by hand and posted at the club. This is also why the league results are not posted on the site, my code does most of this work for me. Instead of spending time and effort to get the site updated I am spending my time on the code to get it working so all will go smoothly from here on out. I you need to see the results before Thursday pick up a copy of the TRG as they should be in there. Thanks for everyone’s patients.
