Summer is flying by. Hope everyone is enjoying the longer summer days at the range. Here’s a brief summary of events from the July 9 Club Meeting:
We hosted 276 shooters at the Firecracker shoot on 6/30 and received positive feedback on the new “traditional recurve” style. We’re all looking forward to Oranco’s next big shoot - the Tomahawk Shoot in October.
Special THANK YOU to all our volunteers that helped set up, run and take down after the shoot. It was a hot weekend and your efforts are very much appreciated. We’re grateful for your support and value your contribution to a successful tournament!
Cherry’s Valley’s Big Bear Shoot is coming up the weekend of August 3-4. This is a great 2-day shoot and well attended by Oranco Members. Check out the CBH website for flyers and a list of events all over California.
ORANCO SUMMER LEAGUE
Al is leading a 6 week Summer League on Saturday mornings starting on July 13 and ending August 24 with a break on August 3 (Big Bear Shoot). Club members and prospective members are invited to participate. The fee is $10 per shoot, all styles, one bonus shot each week. Participate in 5 or more weeks for a chance at an award.
