Okanagan shooters honour founding members

North Okanagan Trap & Skeet Club Labour Day Classic

They honoured late founding members Art and Joan Salt while recording some stellar shooting in the Labour Day Classic at the North Okanagan Trap & Skeet Club in Spallumcheen.

Meet director Lisa Salt said splendid weather greeted a smaller turnout than usual with shooters from Alberta, Vancouver Island and northern B.C. joining Interior competitors.

“It was a four-day shoot with a half-day fun day preceding the shoot,” said Lisa. “We also had a little memorial and shots fired by seven members of the family of Art and Joan Salt, who recently passed away, who were part of the founding members of the North Okanagan Trap and Skeet Club, and life members. Art Salt shot right up until he was 95 years old.”
