General Discussion / Sept 8 & 9... WGC's 23rd Annual Duck Flurry - fun shoot
« on: September 01, 2018, 11:19:06 AM »
Don't forget about Waunakee Gun Club's 23rd Annual Duck Flurry September 8 & 9!!!!!

This is a fun shoot that is all about having fun!!!

As in the past...this is a two-shooter, 100-bird team-based event, with full use of a hunting gun allowed (3 shell max capacity).

$25 per shooter per entry.

We will have side games including Waun-A-Break (our version of Make-A-Break) and a long bird as well.

5 Stations will include:
- A couple of lulls, our steel towers, and our pit station. 20 birds per station for a chance to break 100!
- At least 1 timed "flurry" -type station with 4-birds launched at a time on a set interval once pull is called - better be able to load quick!
- 1 station with a white poison bird - shoot her and loose all the broken birds from that set.

The program will be offering many different "classes" to choose from (Main event, 20 gauge/subguage, side by side, parent/child, pump gun, man/women, over under) for a chance at winning a prestigious Flurry trophy.

There will be $$$ thousands & thousands $$$ worth of prize giveaway's each day of the event. Each paid entry will also be registered for a chance at winning the grand prize.

Hope to see you there ........
