The gang at Cat and Fiddle Pub for debrief.

Article submitted by:  13766 Konrad Mech, RRMC RMC Class of 1982

The Vancouver Branch held a Gun Range Night at DVC Ventures Indoor Range in Port Coquitlam.  We had 11 shooters attend, including two guests who had never shot before – Neil Clegg’s son Jeremy and Harris Sugimoto’s daughter Janis.  Jeff Poste scored the targets, and the Branch awarded the trophies at the Cat and Fiddle Pub.

The winners were:

Jeff Poste won for Best Veteran Score, with a perfect score of 100.
Kim Mech won for Best Civilian – Female, coming 6th overall with an 85.
Jeremy Clegg won for Best Civilian – Male, with a score of 38 as a first-time shooter.
Janis Sugimoto won for Most Stylish Shooter.  Janis also deserves special mention for coming in 8th position out of 11 with a very respectable score of 82 as a first time shooter, including outshooting her father Harris.
During dinner, Jim Reith cracked that it’s better to be the shooter than being shot (and that’s a story for another day!)
The event was enjoyed by all, and we hope to increase the number of participants next year.  The range accepts children aged 10 and over, so family and friends are welcome.
