Sprit Ridge had new faces visiting the golf course, Lance Frazer and Alan Murray from The Herald Journal. Making a shout-out on the front page and a two page article on the front of the “Outdoors” section, Spirit Ridge Rifle Golf is famous! We would like to thank Frazer and Murray for taking the time to visit the course and experience the thrill of the sport rifle golf. And don’t worry, we didn’t send them home empty handed. They both had the opportunity to shoot at an antelope at about 400 yards of which they both hit dead-on. Frazer even took a shot at the 1,000 yard target; we won’t say how close (or how far away) he was. The duo ended the morning with a hearty, pulled-pork sandwich, personally prepared by Aaron Dooling. We have a feeling that won’t be their last visit to SRRG, they seemed to have really enjoyed the sport.

As always, we would like to thank the men who make the monthly tournaments possible. The veterans to SRRG are picking up speed fast; as you can tell by past tournament results, some of the same guys keep winning. We would like to encourage everyone who just enjoys the thrill of shooting to come out to our November tournament. The number of people who enter is not too large, so your chances of taking home a prize is high. No more excuses as to why you can’t come. If you want to come, then COME!!!
