FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The North Peace Rod & Gun Club will be the host venue for the Fort St. John Petroleum Association’s 34th Annual Oilmen’s Trapshoot this coming weekend.
The Petroleum Association’s Chairman Shane Stirling says that so far, there are 55 members of the Association that will be taking part in this year’s event, out of a maximum 80 spots available. Stirling says that though registration is lower than the maximum number of spots, it is close to what the Association has seen at the trapshoot in years past. This year will also see competitors shoot 125 rounds instead of the 100 rounds of years past.
Team trophies will be given out, along with prizes. There will also be fun shoots and a long shot event as part of the festivities.
Those taking part can get some preparation in with a practice shoot Friday evening from 4 until 8 p.m. There will also be a barbecue dinner held that evening.
Association members are still able to register for the event. They can do that by getting in touch with Stirling at 250-262-8348, or in person at the North Peace Rod & Gun Club on Thursday and Friday evening. The Trapshoot itself begins on Saturday at 7:00 a.m.
