Shoot and Event Results
3rd Annual Stampede Grand
July 9-12

Although the Stampede Grand is our annual summer shoot, we hosted sub-gauge, side by side, pump, and five-stand events as part of the shoot making this our first ever 4 day NSCA registered shoot! We had a great turnout with both impressive scores as well as impressive targets for our 300 clay Main Event on Saturday and Sunday! It was a busy and fun filled weekend! Huge Congratulations to our winners, especially Wayne Norton who took HOA with a 275. Great shooting Wayne!

Back row left to right: Warren Eckstrand (C class winner, 259), Shane Livingstone (A class winner, 248), Wayne Norton (HOA, 275), Tyler Reynar (B and Junior class winner, 252), Ryan Bannerholt (E class winner, 235).

Front row left to right: Jason DeJong (D class winner, 229), Barbara Muga (Ladies winner, 209), Hunter Brewster (Sub Junior class winner, 244), Tom Stenger (AA class winner, 272).

A Scottish Summer's Evening at Silver Willow
    In order to support the local Carstairs community Youth Drop-In Centre (CRASH), on July 3rd Silver Willow hosted an evening of Scottish music and western cuisine featuring the Sutherland Pipe Band from Sutherland, Scotland and Silver Willow's famous steak dinner. We were overwhelmed by the support from both community members as well as shooters with over 60 tickets sold. As Don's mother's maiden name was Sutherland, and his ancestors are from Sutherland, Scotland, it was special for the Day family to connect with part of their heritage as well!


Motto for the evening was

 " Faith is a team sport that requires UNITY in the community"
