Wounded Warrior Sporting Clays @ Vernon National

Vernon National Shooting Preserve, Vernon Center, New York.

I had pre-registered, but for those who didn't, a smooth process. 

Free coffee and pastries before the shoot.

A safety briefing and a Wounded Warrior ceremony was conducted before the start of the shoot.

Sunny skies and in the low 70's.

14 Stations. A shotgun start.

A six man squad.  I ran into one couple at a shoot last year and didn't know the third that joined the crew.  All had a sense of humor and seemed that all had a pretty good time.  The two from my neck of the woods were first time visitors to the club.

Target presentations were varied.  I shot IC at all stations.

A little wind, but nothing that mattered.

Three young girls were walking the course and given out bottled water.  Also, someone was driving  around in a cart offering water.

When we had a station to go we were notified that the included free lunch was going to be late and to feel free to shoot two or three extra stations (for free) if we wanted to kill some time. Talk about being on top of a situation!

We declined on shooting the extra stations, but in the end I think we were only talking 30 minutes after putting are gear away before lunch (chicken) was served.  In the meantime, the ladies put out dessert and plenty of soda and bottle water was available.
