Spring Fling Shotgun Competition

Kettlefoot R&GC’s

Spring Fling 4-Gauge Team Competition

A 5-Man, 4-gauge Team, Fun Competition will be incorporated into Kettlefoot’s 7 May, 2022 Trophy Shoot.  There will not be an extra fee to enter the 5-man, 4-gauge event.  Each team must have a 12-, 20-, 28- and 410-gauge representative, with the 5th gun being the shooters’ choice.  Each team member must be from the same club.  A team award will be presented to the winning team.  Clubs may enter more than one team.  Teams must be formed at the point of registration or before.  In other words, shoot management will not arrange teams.Individual shooters may not enter with more than one team.  The highest number of clays hit per 5-man team wins the event.  There are no sub-gauge handicaps for theTeam event.All NSSA and Kettlefoot skeet rules will be in effect.In the event of a tie, it will be resolved bycomparison of each tying team’s longest run.

Scores from this team event may also be entered for the normal Trophy shoot competition.  With one exception, Kettlefoot’s no sub-gauge handicap policy will remain in force.  The lone exception will be a two-bird (per 50) handicap afforded to each team’s designated 410-gauge shooter for purposes of the Trophy shoot event.  Each team’s 410 shooter may avail themselves of this handicap, or, for an extra fee of $8.00, may shoot a second 50-bird skeet round with a larger gauge for the Trophy shoot competition.  Shooters must elect this option at time of registration.  (Shoot management encourages designated 410, 5-man team shooters to accept the 2-bird handicap for the Trophy shoot competition, but does not mandate it.)  This lone exception to the no sub-gauge handicap policy shall not be construed to impact Trophy shoot rules in any other manner.  And, this exception applies only to one designated 410 shooter per 5-man team.  If a second shooter elects to shoot 410 gauge, it will be scored without handicap in all instances.

Kettlefoot R&GC looks forward to hosting teams from our sister clubs for our first Spring Fling, 4-gauge team competition.

Upper Ranges Closed this Weekend

Due to unforeseen circumstances (Weather and construction) we must close the upper ranges this weekend. This includes the Steel Challenge Match Sunday. All other ranges are open.

*****Important News*****

Attention All Kettlefoot Members:

   Work on the road to the upper ranges will begin Monday Feb. 28. Please be advised that the road will be closed Monday through Friday until the project is completed. The construction crew will do their best to insure the road and ranges will be open on the weekends. If the weather is favorable we should be finished in a few weeks. The lower Pistol Range , Plinking Range, Rimfire Range, Shotgun Ranges  and the 200yd. Precision Range will remain open.

  To finance this project Kettlefoot Recreation is having a Special One Time Only Stock Sale. Under the original Charter there are only 2000 shares of Stock available. 980 shares are already held by 160 members. We are offering 1000 shares at a special one half price of 250.00 a share to finance the project. Any one person can only own and vote 40 shares. This is a one time offer and may be the last time shares are offered, so if you would like to help the club and own a share of a great facility now is the time. If we raise more funds than we need, the remainder will be used to defer Club Debt. If we do not raise the needed funds we may have to raise dues or utilize other less desirable options.

  Contact Wayne Wills at waynew042749@gmail.com  or Sam Snead  at ssnead48@yahoo.com  or come by the club house Tues, Thur. or Sunday Afternoons for more details. I plan on being at the club house at these times and most Sat. Mornings until April 1 to collect dues and conduct other business.
