Volunteers Come thru again!

Posted: July 11, 2014 by David Mosscrop

Fence building

Volunteers; Ken, Tom, David, Trevor, James, Rick, Kevin, and Andy (who also brought the power post hole auger!) constructed a much needed fence between the 5-stand and the International Skeet field.

“Volunteers are somebody! Somebody who cares, somebody who devotes time without pay, somebody who praises all, large or small and somebody who has a common bond with others to make things better."

    Thank you John Jones

    Posted: Mar 15, 2010 by David Mosscrop

    On Saturday March the 6th, a major snow clearing effort was undertaken at the Winnipeg Trap and Skeet Club. With the quality work put forward by John Jones and his skid steer the parking lot was cleared and the paths to trap field 4 and skeet field 1 opened. Paul Moorby used his own snow blower to clear the skeet field and I shoveled the trap field by hand. Stan Orr was on hand for moral support/advice/story telling and cooking some awesome hogit and bison steaks that John provided. There were 54 rounds shot on the next day (Sunday), but I think the real fun was the day before. Thanks to those who helped clear the club, your volunteer efforts and points are noted.

    John lives in Arborg and owns/operates Arborg Auto body Quality Cars & Truck Sales. 204-376-2374

    John and his family make a considerable number of shooters and strong supporters the WTSC.
