Pretty nice day to be shooting our final jackpot shoot of the season, (Sunday, March 24th).
Youth were shooting to the right and to the left of us, so the high school season must be just right around the corner.
I'd like to thank everyone who came out yesterday and throughout the winter to shoot. It's always appreciated!!

Mike Michaelis & Ray Steffenson split the $20 for high handicap round of the day. Both shot a 24. Mike also had the top score of the day with a 49... Great Shooting Mike!!

Sunday, March 24th from 12:00pm to 6:00pm each day.
If the weather cooperates, and it looks like it will, we will go to our spring hours beginning next week. 

Winter Jackpot Shoot
The Del-Tone/Luth Gun Club will hold its final Winter Jackpot Shoot this
coming Sunday, March 24th. Twenty-Five 16 yard targets + Twenty-Five Handicap targets. Handicap yardage is determined by your 16 yard score + 2, unless your ATA yardage is longer. No shooter can shoot closer then the 20 yard line. $18.00 entry fee which $4.00 of each entry goes back into the winners pot. Shooters can enter as many times as he/she would like. Shoot starts at 11:00AM. 

Free lunch for shooters of the event. 

The Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range will NOT BE OPEN this weekend, Saturday, March 13th/
Sunday, March 14th and the scheduled Jackpot Shoot has been postponed.
We have an extreme amount of ice down at the rifle/pistol range and up by the clubhouse. Hopefully with next weeks forecast, this will mostely be gone and we'll be able to shoot.
We appreciate your patience.

I would like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to Mike Ebnet and Todd Kobienia, (Foley Head Trapshooting Coach), for taking the time to come out to the club yesterday, Tuesday, March 12th, to help in the snow removal of the trap fields. Mike drove his International tractor with snow blower over and cleared fields 4 thru 8, while Todd used his old mans back to manually remove the snow. Words can't express my appreciation.

February 28th, 2019 and I'm officially waving my white flag to Good Old Mother Nature.
I surrender and she wins.  Sundays forecast for the scheduled Winter Jackpot Shoot is an optimistic 0 degrees for a high with no word on wind chill temps. Normal highs this time of year are suppose to be in the 30's. 

Therefore, for obvious reasons, the scheduled Winter Jackpot Shoot scheduled for Sunday, March 3rd has been canceled. 

February 17th Winter Jackpot Shoot Results:
Probably the coldest day we've shot in for awhile.  A nice northernly breeze kept the targets just tricky enough it made us all think "is this really worth it?".
I'd like to "Thank" everyone for coming out to shoot and have some laughs.

January 13th Jackpot Results:
The day ended up being cooler then forecasted, but the high twenties with a cool southern breeze is still not a bad day in January.  Hopefully, some day we'll get to see the sun again!!

We had numerous 47's and 46's, but no one could get over the hump and post a 48.  We had a coupld of shooters who had the opprotunity, but let it slip away.  Jimmy Brand missed his 48 target and Joel Johnson missed his 50th target. Those type of misses hurt!!

Congratulations to Brian Anderson for shooting a 25 straight in one of his handicap rounds and taking home the crisp $20 bill for posting the high handicap round of the day!!

SUMMER TRAP LEAGUE
Last year we introduced a 16 week league instead of the normal 20 week league. There were two double-header weeks, so the total rounds shot ended up 18 compared to 20 for the normal 20 week schedule. The reason for us trying the new league was an attempt to help out shooters with young families and the start of school in September.  I heard some complaints, but the majority of the comments were on the positive side. Since my first day of managing the Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range, I’ve tried to make all leagues as shooter friendly as I can in hopes the shooters will have a more enjoyable summer without the pressure of a league.
With that in mind, we will continue with the 16 week, 18 round league for another year.

The  Summer Trap League will start on Monday, May 7th  and run to the week of
Monday, August 21st.  Shooters will again be able to shot two weeks behind or ahead of schedule. With early spring weather, this could/will be extended if needed. The league will continue to be split into a 1st & 2nd half competition with the winners of each half, having a shoot-off for the divisional championship. Each half will be 8 weeks and each half will have
1 double-header week.

The first half of the league will run from Monday, May 7th to the week of Monday, June 18th. The doubleheader for the first half is scheduled for the week of Monday, June 25th. The second half of the league will run from Monday, July 2nd to the week of Monday, August 20th. The doubleheader for the second half is scheduled for the week of Monday, August 13th.
All scores will need to be posted for the league by Friday, August 24th.

The Awards/Fun Shoot will be held on Monday, August 27th.

If you do not have a team, we will be glad to place you on one.

Call the clubhouse or email Jeff at jeff@del-tone-luth.com to join.

The 2018 Team Sponsorship fee will remain at $120.0

Congratulations to Wade Rhonemus and Connor Olson of the Foley High School Trap Shooting Team.  Wade shot his first 25 straight and Connor not only shot a 25 straight, but backed it up with a 24 for a total of 49.  Did I mention that the wind was blowing 20 to 25 mph???
Great shooting men!!!

 

 

On Saturday, April 28th, the Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range will hold a Poker Shoot at the 100 yard rifle bay. Each shooter of a particular hand/shoot, will be given a 23"x55" target, which has a scattered deck of cards printed on them. Each shooter will get 5 shots, in an agreed upon time frame, with the best poker hand winning that hand/shoots pot.
 
At past shoots, we have been getting 3 to 4 hands per target. Shooters buy the targets for $3/per and then throw $1 into the pot for each hand. If there's 6 shooters,
winning pot will be $6.
 
Shooters can enter as many hands/shoots as they would like. It should be mentioned tall 10 benches fill up relatively fast, so get there early!!!
 
Shoot runs from 12:00PM to 3:00PM
 
Permit to Carry Class
