Lions Club Shoot was success

When a man or a woman is “nuts about shootin’,” it takes more than cold winds and rain to keep him at home. Ample proof of this was shown last Sunday by the number of fans who showed up to try to win a turkey or a chicken for their Thanksgiving Day dinner. One old muzzle loader appeared to be the only thing affected by the weather – it just refused to go “boom”. Shooters and the Lions Club members directing the meet refused to be dampened – at least in spirit.
