I Had One Hundred & Twenty-Five Shots this Weekend!
At the TrapShoot at Crump Fox Club in Linwood

By: Julie McCallum,
Thats right!! . . . I took One hundred and twenty-five
shots this weekend, at the Crump Fox Club Trap-Shoot on Sunday, September 13, 2009 with my BROWNING Sweet-sixteen 16 Gage shot gun.
That includes 5 Rounds of 25 shots (5 per station, 5 stations).
Now the question people ask or I should say most 'men' ask me is how many of them shots did I break?
WELL . . . that's like asking a woman her age or weight . . . are you kidding me??
Let's just say I beat my 'personal best' this weekend at the annual trap and turkey shoot in Linwood that I've been attending for the last several years. (AND YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!)
And after the weekend I had, I couldn't have asked for more.
And that was LESS.... support from both my brothers (who were racing - motocross & couldn't be there), no heckling from old friends in the score booth, no Tim Roller to compete with, and no fan club except for my sister who got stung by a bee while taking pictures, and no good luck charms, except maybe for one, oh and my arms were still sore from lifting weights "shoulders & arms", (I will never do that before a shoot again)
Anyway, it was perfect weather conditions, although it was a bit 'gloomy' in the clubhouse as the LIONS lost their first game of the season, but thats a norm.
So, Thats my story and I'm sticking to it! Next Year you should really plan on joining me . . . even if you have to go out and buy a shotgun of your own . . . I won't mention any names . . . T I M ! ! !
I really think the Fox Club should think about having a "women's" Shoot-out, even if I am the only one in it!!!. Although at the end of the day on Sunday, I did see a couple more "LADY Shooters" . . . and that is rare.
But that's what gave me the idea! :)
