Jan 18, 2017 @ Palatka Skeet Club

Palatka Skeet Club (Palatka, Florida)

80 degrees and just a little wind kicking up every now and then.

Known for its skeet, but we were hoping to get in a round or two of trap, but the lone trap machine was down for repairs.  A PAT TRAP with wobble option,  No voice release.

We did get in three rounds of skeet.  Member rate $5 a round.

8 time NSSA Intermediate Club of the Year and doesn't surprise me.  A year doesn't go by without the club making improvements.  Today, installing new skeet machines on two fields.



Prepping the skeet house for the new machine.


As we were leaving they just needed a new fuse (auto type) to get the trap machine up and running. Someone was going to run into town and get one.

Skeet shooter passed.

Arthur P. Starr Jr., of New York and winter resident of Palatka, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017 after a short illness.


I pulled many of targets for Art both in New York and Vermont.

For more then a few years he helped in the running of the Palatka Skeet Club.

Art always had time to shoot the breeze. He will be missed.
