Kachemak Skeeters open range for invitational, open house

 An invitationsal and open house organized by the Kachemak Skeeters at the Kachemak Gun Club range, Sterling Highway mile 160, drew attention from around the state last Saturday. Awards of $21,500 were distributed to six participating teams: Kachemak Skeeters, Peninsula Shooting Stars, Birchwood Young Guns, Wasilla Warriors Varsity, Houston Hawks Varsity and Colony Knights Varsity.  Each team received $1,000 for participating in the Homer Invitational Trap & Skeet Tournament, and the top three teams earned the following Endowment Awards for their MidwayUSA Foundation trust account: First: Peninsula Shooting Stars  $7,500, 223 points; Second: Kachemak Skeeters  $5,000, 211 points; Third: Birchwood Young Guns  $3,000, 209 points. The MidwayUSA Foundation is a nonprofit charity that offers shooting teams across the country endowment accounts to help fund and sustain their shooting team.  Of the 25 youth participants, four Skeeter athletes placed in their divisions: Senior Men’s Division: 2. Alex Clark; 3. Elias Graham; Senior Ladies’ Division: 2. Sierra Morris’ Novice Men’s Division: 2. Warren Hamblen.   The event featured the new skeet field which was recently installed at the Kachemak Gun Club. A new shooting season is now for registration for co-ed youth in 3rd grade through high school. Contact kachemakskeeters@gmail.com or call/text 399-2972.
