Six Target Shooting Stewards take charge of their favorite place! Another shooter pays the dump fee!!!
On Saturday, July 18th, at a gravel pit Northwest of Darrington, WA, six
dedicated target shooters joined forces in cleaning up their favorite
place to shoot.
Long time shooting enthusiast, Pat from Arlington, WA, put out a call
for help in cleaning up the pit and enjoy some shooting fun when done.
Five others joined in and got it done. One gentleman brought his young
son and another drove from Sedro-Wooley. They spent about two hours
picking up the trash.
"We were working on the lower pit and there was two guys shooting steel
up in the upper pit", Pat said. "One of our guys went up there and asked
them if they could either move their steel targets to the right or hold
off shooting at them for a little bit. When they asked why, he told
them we were doing a pit clean up and we were at the back of the pit and
there was a chance of the bullets deflecting down where we were picking
up trash. He offered to haul the trash away when they were done
shooting. There had to of been a dozen big bags of trash and a bunch of
metal. It filled his truck up and he had to strap it down. He was
offered cash for the dump fee and declined."
Well done Pat and crew! Thank you for your stewardship!
