Buckhorn 8/4/2019

Hot, humid and nasty. Those were the conditions for shooters at BCG today. Dunno what the actual high was temp wise but the humidity was thick, real thick. Good crowd of shooters showed up. There were a couple of brand new Jrs shooting their very first registered targets. It's always a great thing w...

Buckhorn June 23, 2019

Rare June day in NC for sure, a high of 79, minimal breeze and light overcast. The humidity did kick in mid afternoon but it was tolerable. Decent crowd showed, many I'm sure getting some fine tuning (or major overhaul) in preparation for the Southern Zone coming up about a month from now. We had 22...

Buckhorn May 11 and 12 2019

BGC hosted two days of shooting over Mother's Day weekend. Pretty good crowd on Saturday and a few hardy souls on Sunday. The weatherman didn't cooperate much with damp, humid conditions both days. The only thing that kept it bearable was that the temps didn't get past the upper 70s. Target visibili...

Buckhorn April 14, 2019

Whew! Got that one in right under the wire! The weather man got one right for a change - forecast cloudy with the rain to start 3:00ish Sunday afternoon. The last pair of doubles was broken at 2:10 and the rain was washing the pollen off the vehicles in the parking lot at 2:30......... Karole got he...

Buckhorn 3/17/2019

The day started out on the chilly side, it was low 30ish when we pulled into the parking lot around 8:00 this morning. It stayed on the cool side for singles with a light breeze that played with the targets a little. The wind remained with us for the rest of the day making for a few interesting pres...

Buckhorn Birthday Bash 2/17/2019

Well now, a couple of us are a little older (I won't see anything in the 50s again) and a couple others will be in a matter of just a few days. Everyone needs to call, text or email the Curmudgeon and wish him Happy Birthday "sometime" this month. Also, when you get a chance give Morris a Big Ol' HB...

Buckhorn Jan 20, 2019

Entertaining. Yep that's the word for what went on today. Entertaining........... Pulled into the parking lot a little after 8:00 this morning. It was 57* at the house when I left and 51 hen I got there. The temp continued to drop from there. Then the wind kicked up, blowing steady in the teens with...

Buckhorn Dec 30, 2018

Buckhorn closed out the calendar year with a typical 300 target day on Dec 30. The weather man got it wrong and we're certainly glad he did. The forecasted rain failed to appear, it was overcast for singles then the sun poked his head out about the time caps started and the rest of the day was perfe...

Buckhorn 12/2/2018

Good crowd at BGC to play in the fog and damp conditions. Several youth shooters on hand along with some of the regular old farts. It appeared that everyone was having a good time as is always the case when the faithful gather. The first flight out in singles had an "interesting" time of it as the f...

Buckhorn Toys for Tots 11/11/2018

It was a little on the chilly and brisk side with the "cool" temperatures and at times stiff breeze, but that didn't stop a whole pile of loonies.........er......shooters from stepping to the line and pounding targets into dust. This was one of the best attended shoots I've seen at a local shoot in ...

Buckhorn 10/21/2018

Breezy and chilly conditions challenged the shooters today at BGC. Saw 41* for the outside temp as Ms. Mary and I rolled into the club this morning. On the way up we saw several trees that had been blown down by the recent storms and a couple of dwellings that had received some damage. Fortunately, ...

Buckhorn 9/2/2018

Day two of the Buckhorn Labor Day weekend shoot is now in the books. Weather was a carbon copy of yesterday with hot humid conditions for the participants to get all sweated up again. We had a few more shooters toe the line today and great scores were shot in all three events. We had the pleasure of...

Buckhorn 9/1/2018

Hot, humid, nasty, yuck........ Day one of Buckhorn's three day shoot is in the books to start the 2018-2019 target year. A small bunch showed up to play, I imagine there were many out in the dove fields plying their skills on those tough airborne acrobats. Despite the conditions and the small crowd...

Re: DCWC Aug 28th Shoot Results

It's always easy enough to complain so it ought to be as easy to recognize improvement. After the last shoot Durham, there were some "observations" made and communicated to DCWC mgmt. about some things that might help improve shooter experience there. Evidently they took it to heart, dug in and........
