The Boise Gun Club shot an airmail letter to The Spokesman Review Sunday night and became the 29th club to enter the 25th annual Inland Empire telegraphic trapshoot for The Spokesman-Review trophy.

Postmaked at Boise before midnight Sunday, the letter put the club just under the deadline for entries.  Yakima was next to the last, sending their entry by wire.

22 Teams Enter

With the list closed it was found that 29 clubs will shoot as 22 teams which means every Sunday will see at least two matches per club and some Sunday’s three.  The schedule will be drawn immediately and published in th Spokesman – Review on Friday.

In the meantime telephone officials are busy getting the times for the reports by the clubs straightened out.  Club governors are the contact men between The Spokesman-Review sports desk and their clubs.  It is essential they be on hand at the time allotted, for the mechanics of a shoot the size of this one calls for smooth running.

Committee is Named

The governing committee, which will be the one to pass upon any protests which may be filed, has been selected.  To date this committee has always bee an honorary one and has never had a real protest to consider.  Here are the members of the Silver Jubilee Body:
