Registered Shoots Just two registered shoots this weekend to close out April shoots. The first shoot is the End of April Showers shoot at SpringBank near Adairsville, GA. The shoot is on Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28 and consists of a 100 target main event and 50 targets in the 20 and 28 gauges. Re-entry is encouraged.
  The second shoot is the 2018 Spring Shoot at Flint Skeet and Trap Club here in Albany. The shoot is on Saturday, April 28 and has a 100 target main event and re-entry is encouraged. Re-entry has not been offered at Flint in some time and we hope you will make your trip worthwhile and stay around and re-enter. A quick lunch is included in your entry fee.
  If you have never shot at Flint, it is a fairly compact reversed J shaped course and nearly all shooting stands are in shaded areas. About half the course is among the trees and half is over a large field. The combination makes for some interesting presentations.

Talk around GSCA  ● Time to review a bit. GSCA has presently 1,220 NSCA members and we had 1,178 at this time in 2017. Although I do not have a registered target count for last year, we appear to be doing well at 407,730 for the first few months of 2018. We look to be well on our way to another 1 million target year. The record set in 2017 was 1,863,973 registered targets but that included one of the largest US Open's at Big Red Oak.
  Registration for the Georgia Championships in June at Forest City is approaching the record set at Forest City back in 2016. We had 406 entries in the main event then and we have 376 registered now. That number will increase over the next 45 days. Total entries for the shoot are now at 420.
  Interesting to note that the the 2002 Georgia State Shoot at Okefenokee had 2 events and this year, the state shoot has 13 events to chose from.
  Don't forget that you need 300 registered targets since October 1, 2017 prior to the 2018 State shoot to stay out of a penalty class at the state shoot.
  Since we are updating information, the 2018 Southeastern Regional at Forest City in September  has 551 entries in the main event and 598 total entries.  The 551 entries matches the record set at the Nashville Gun Club back in 2014. It's going to be one wing ding of a shoot!
● Old Hudson sent me an e-mail stating that Clint Hinton is now giving lessons and you can contact him here.
