TONASKET – The day was threatening, with sloppy roads and low fog making shooting light iffy, but in spite of those obstacles 16 people showed up for the January Long Range Silhouette Match at the Tonasket Gun Club.

Mike Denney only lost two rams and one turkey in the fog to turn in a score of 37 hits out of 40 possible. Second place went to DJ Reynolds at 32.

Al Rise toppled 28 of his silhouettes for third place. Sam Shaw and Tom Gschiel tied for fourth and fifth.

Spokesman Ralph Malone gave special mention to Ben Richey, 11, who knocked over 12 targets in his first time at the silhouette matches.

The next long-range silhouette match is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 8.

Malone said a pair of binoculars was left on the shooting bench behind the turkey-ram firing points. Al Rise at Al’s Sporting Goods, 509-223-4461, can be contacted by the owner.
