Shooting Match

"The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun." ~ P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975)
The lodge at Blalock Lakes
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending a day out of the office at Blalock Lakes, a new hunting and equestrian community and club south of Atlanta. The weather was outstanding and competing against yourself and friends (old and new) on the sporting clay course was a great deal of fun. The facilities were exellent and the staff very friendly and helpful for a few of our first time shooters.
This type of outing has started to become more popular as the corporate golf outing has lost whatever draw it once had for all but the most dedicated golfer.
Here are a few pictures from our sporting day out in the woods. If you've never tried sporting clay shooting you're missing out. Give it a try and enjoy a bit of competition in the great outdoors.

A den with bar off to one side of the great room

A fire pit behind the lodge with a beautiful vew of the hills.

I wish I could say I won, but using a borrowed gun my performance was only middle of the pack.
Note: No animals were hurt during this afternoon of shooting,
though a few shoulders were a bit sore.
