PITA MULTIPLEX. BOISE GUN CLUB. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5TH, 2010.
The Boise Gun Club held their second multiplex shoot of the year, and after digging out of snow left over from a storm that set a record for snowfall on that date and closed the club for one operating day the Wednesday before, shooters were treated to a pretty nice day for shooting. The shooting was delayed for about an hour as club members finished shoveling snow (and a thick layer of ice) from around the clubhouse and off of three trap aprons.
12 shooters took part in the event and went into a Lewis class pool of over 300 shooters from clubs all over the Northwest. Jay Fraiser who had just returned from work in Alaska for a short vacation found the snowy conditions ideal and broke the first ever 50 straight in doubles at the Boise site in six multiplex shoots.
29 events were shot, 1450 targets were thrown and one new member was signed up.
Scores in the singles ranged from 50 to 39 and in the handicap from 44 to 36. Fraiser’s 50 led the doubles and scores went down to 30. Two shooters will hit the Lewis pay-offs for sure and everyone is hoping to hit a “ lucky Lewis” somewhere.
The multiplex program is proving to be a fun way to keep interest in registered shooting up during the cold winter months. Last year Boise and Caldwell shot the multiplex program in Idaho and this year the Burley Gun Club has joined in. All three clubs will shoot again on the first weekend in January and the first weekend in February.
