Third Annual Local 1189 Trap Shoot Recap

This year’s 15 trap shoot participants included 10 Local 1189 active members, 1 Local 1189 retiree from Rainbow Foods, 1 UFCW  Local 653 member, 1 father of a Local 1189 member and 2 sons of Local 1189 members.  The trap shoot was held at the Metro Gun Club in Blaine, MN.

Donald Howard (pictured) from the White Bear Festival Foods store took first place hitting 22 of 25;  Jake Peltier, also from White Bear Festival Foods took second place hitting 20 of 25; and Tom Samec from the Arcade Cub Foods store took third place hitting 20 of 25.

Anyone wondering why the second and third place winners did not result in a tie for second place should direct their questions to Local 1189 Executive Board member and organizer of the Trap Shoot, Scottie Rotter. No doubt intense calculations regarding wind speed, humidity, barometric pressure and choke size were discussed prior to the order of the awards being determined. 

The lowest score was 5 out of 25, but that was an improvement over last year’s 3 out of 25. There was no improvement award for this participant. 

Everyone had fun. Please watch next year’s calendar and plan on coming out and joining us.
