August News Letter

Summer Events Continue at WCGC

Dear Members:
July was a busy month for us with our big shoot, “Chester County Days” on July 20th. We hosted 71 ATA shooters who took aim at 100 single targets. 47 of those shooters stayed and then shot handicap with us.
We saw 2 scores of 100 straight in the singles and 2 scores of 97 in the doubles. Congratulations to all who took home a trophy or Lewis Class prize. Please visit the Club website to see the results. The day could not have gone as smoothly as it did without the great help and assistance of our volunteers. Thank you.Our last ATA 100 of the 2014 season is this Sunday starting at 10:30. We will have singles, handicap, and doubles. We will keep a practice trap open as long as we can but may need to halt practice to move the registered shooters efficiently. Please feel free to call the Club before coming out to check on trap availablity –  tel. 610-696-4577.
