Weekly practice of the Smoking Pigeons
On June 1st and 2nd, 2019, 9 members of the Smokin’ Pigeons attended a 2 day skeet camp hosted by the Palatka Skeet Club and the National Skeet Shooting Association. There were 47 kids that participated in the event.
The event concludes with a shoot off. The Smokin Pigeons had two of the three participants in the final. They were Aiden Wills and Tommy McAteer. Tommy McAteer went on to win the championship. This is a testament to our two skeet coaches Mr. Ray Scrugham and Mr. Gene Provost.
