McWhirter takes high overall at shoot

The Kettle Wildlife Association hosted a Pacific International Trap Association sanctioned shoot last weekend.

Scores in a PITA sanctioned trap shoot means your scores are recorded with the Pacific International Trap Association. It brings out the best shooters from the wider region.

Kettle Wildlife Association (KWA) held a Pacific International Trap Association (PITA) sanctioned shoot on Saturday.

Each shooter got 300 registered birds—100 each singles, handicap and doubles. As she does for PITA events across the southern part of the province, Peggy Bare was there from West Kelowna as cashier and keeping score for the event.

The club provided lunch for a very reasonable $8 charge, keeping up the clubs’ reputation as an excellent shoot to come to when you are hungry.

Bare said that 26 shooters attended this year, coming from Washington State, Vernon, Armstrong, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Midway and Rock Creek.

The KWA holds two registered shoots at KWA each year, in April and August.

They shoot every Saturday for practice and there are monthly multiplex competitions.
