This yearís Challenge Shoot, held on March 17, 2013, was dedicated to Ernie Lemons for his 24 years of service to the Shooting Sports program. Ernie began this shoot as the sole fund raiser for the club and has been dedicated in keeping it going all these years. Each spring he could be seen walking around town with his yellow legal pad seeking team sponsors and prize donors. This yearís shoot was bitter sweet not having Ernie attend. But with the help of numerous volunteers it was once again a huge success for the program! The club would like to thank the following Jr. Leaders for all their hard work: Alyssa Barnsdale, Kaden Gaukel, Kaitlin Gaukel and Kylee Gaukel. These individuals took on the planning of this event as one of their Jr. Leader projects for the year. Many hours were spent in preparation for the shoot designing posters and hanging them around town, compiling team target packets, keeping track of team sponsors, cash donors, and prize donors, as well as making certificates of appreciation and thank you cards. With the generous support of many individuals and businesses there were 45 teams sponsored with a total of 78 shooters taking part in this yearís contest.

The contest began at 10 am and shooting continued till 4 p.m. Each 4 person team member was required to shoot 2 pistol targets and 1 rifle target (in a designated position). Throughout the day participants enjoyed a concessions stand, and the club would like to thank Samantha Jensen and Ingrid Heil for running it. Thanks as well to all the club members who brought food to contribute, everything was delicious.
