WAY TO GO!!!!!
Something new this year !

Each shoot this year, we will offer two "Golden Flash Targets" with a Jackpot pool opportunity. You will have the option to pay $10.00 to be included in this pool. There will be two hidden flash targets in each shoot, if you hit the target you will either win half the cash pot or split it with the one other shooter. The remainder of the 50/50 jackpot will stay in the pool until the next shoot and continue to build throughout the year.
The Jackpot as of April 6 is running at $387.00 rolling into the May 25th & 26th Shoot.

The Day and Co. Feature of the Month
Soft & Hard Sided Gun Cases
A gun case not only make it easier to transport your gun, but it protects it, as well. Gun cases generally fall into one of two categories:
hard cases and soft cases.
Hard Gun Cases
Hard gun cases offer more protection than soft cases. Typically made from plastic or aluminum, the hard exterior protects your gun from the elements and any other outside forces. The interior is lined with foam to protect the gun from impact. It also helps keep the gun safe from shifting around in the case. When you’re looking at the interior foam, the thicker the better. Some cases will come with model-specific foam for the perfect fit. If you’re flying with your firearms, you will need a TSA-approved hard case.

 Soft gun cases are lightweight and easy to carry on your hunting trip. Waterfowl hunters will often use soft cases that are waterproof and  designed to float . Soft cases can even serve dual purpose as a
cushion when the gun isn’t inside.

If you ever fail, never give up because F.A.I.L means
``First Attempt In Learning``
End is not the end in fact E.N.D means
``Effort Never Dies``
If you get No as an answer, remember N.O. means
``Next Opportunity" that's Positive Thinking`
Hours of Operations Reminder
In 2013 we worked through a lengthy process to apply for and receive a new Country Approved Development Permit. Once we accepted the stipulations so that we could open the new summer Blue course, we also accepted very ridged rules about our hours of operation.
As you read our hours for both summer and winter, please understand they are a bylaw, not a suggestion or just a guideline. If people shoot past
5:00 pm cut off, (Wed & Thurs 8:00 pm) it’s possible we may be challenged on our development permit.
Please be aware of that rule and help us protect your opportunity to shoot at Silver Willow.
