The UVM Shooting Sports Club Pistol Team takes 1st place again! This is the second time in two weeks that the Team has taken top honors at a championship pistol match. This time it was at the Scholastic Pistol Program's North East Regional Championship hosted at the Harvard Sportsman's Club in Harvard,MA. The match was sponsored by Smith and Wesson with prizes sponsored by the MidwayUSA Foundation. Larry and Brenda Potterfield(owners of the Midway USA dist.) donated to the competing teams' endowments the following amounts: $3000 for registering with the SPP, $3000 for competing in the match and prize money of $5000 for 1st, $3000 for 2nd, and $1000 for 3rd. All this money goes straight to endowments for each team that will be able to withdraw 5% a year to support their programs.
The UVM Team beat out Texas A&M, Harvard University and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy for top honors.
Well we have kicked off the new competition season.
The Trap and Skeet team went to West Point to compete against the USMA and Brown Uni Teams this past Sunday. The Gun Cats came in 2nd in the team scores and the Team Capt Chris came in 2nd place in High Overall with 95/100!
Thanks to Army for hosting the match, they have a great club down there!
The Pistol Team held a fundraiser that same day at the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club(LVFG). Even with the poor weather the turn out was good. Here a link to the results of it LINK.
