Dear Shooters:

   Welcome to the Blue Ridge Sportsmen’s Club and the 2008
Pennsylvania State Sporting Clays Championship.

     This year’s tournament is coming together to be one of the best yet.
Please take some time to review the event schedule so you are aware of
all of the planned activities.

     This year’s course design will be set by Gary Bloom. Glen and Dawn
of D & G Sporting Clays will be on hand with the Pennsylvania made
Lincoln Traps. Lois Lessing will work her magic on the keyboard for up
to the minute scoring.

    Due to the volume of shooters expected at this event, we are asking
that you pre-register for all events you expect to shoot to avoid sign-in
delays. Please note, we will be shooting Thursday & Friday all Preliminary
& Sub Gauge events. Start early to complete these events, you must be on
the course by 3:00 pm as noted in the schedule.

     Any personal golf carts or 4 wheelers are welcome on the grounds.
All guns must be mounted in a vertical position. This will be enforced!

    Blue Ridge has added for 2008 a 50 target Fitasc event. We will be
shooting competition on Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Sunday will be
“Fitasc for Fun” reduced rate, no classes, Lewis payout. Learn to shoot
Fitasc without the pressure.

    We hope you plan on attending to make this one of our state’s finest
shoots. Bring your gun and a good attitude and plan on
having a lot of fun.
