The 11th annual Joe Van Memorial Shoot was held July 20-22 at Carlisle Fish and Game Association in Carlisle, PA. Joe VanDenburg was Skeet Chair and supporter of skeet for many years at Carlisle and was responsible for starting many new skeet shooters.
Our five-gun shoot this year hosted 28 shooters from five states. Barry Horner of Keymar, MD, a Veteran shooter of only seven years, shot his first 100 straight in Doubles, winning that event. Carlisle is his home club, and he is coached by Denny Lehman. The rains started early Saturday morning and continued all weekend, soaking all our brave participants. But Matt Sanders of Abbottstown, PA, must have been rainproof, as he cleaned up in all the other guns, shooting an HOA of 397.
Thanks to all who helped make this shoot a success.
