Chris Ferch of Beaver Dam, WI!  Congrats to Chris who was drawn at our Ducks Before Bucks, a Night of Winning, event held last night at Midpoint Eatery and Sports Pub in Johnson Creek, WI.  Chris’s name likely sounds familiar to those of you who are members of our Facebook group as he is not only a volunteer member of our Board of Directors but also our FB page administrator.  Chris shot at five of our six shoots, although of course he only needed his one lucky ticket to win.

Abrams Shoot Winners Announced

We had a record 107 shooters come through, shooting more than 110 rounds, at the 6th annual event, despite weather that was far less than perfect, with temps no higher than 50, and a stiff northwest wind, and light snow flurries!  Thanks to everyone who came out, and to our presenting sponsor: NEW Wall Street of Green Bay.  The Abrams Shoot is a fun shoot, and so this event has never had overall winners or Lewis scoring.  We did give away more than $2000 in awesome prize packages through nearly 30 shooters’ buckets, plus the three awesome card raffles for the SportDOG e-collar package, the Cabela’s tailgate grilling set-up, and the amazing multi-winner Porter’s decoys options.  All but a few of these winners were present for the drawing, those not present have been contacted, and arrangements made for them to receive their prizes at a future event.  The winners of the “flurry shoot” are as follows:

1st place:  Bryan Tomcheck/Brad Tomcheck   17 of 20  Half of the net proceeds:  $160 cashShoot Registration

2nd place:  Brad Tomcheck/Eric Johnson   15/20 (won tiebreaker)  Porter’s handcrafted decoy & 20 bucket tickets

3rd place:  Bryan Urben/Brad Tomcheck   15/20 (lost tiebreaker)    2 “wingspans” of bucket tickets  (80)

We look forward to seeing many of you again, this coming weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, for the 3rd shoot in the 2016 Series, at the Ozaukee County Shoot.  Remember, if you shot with us at the Madison Shoot, or at Abrams,  you’re eligible to use coupon code 2016wwashoot to receive $5 off your entry at every additional WWA Shoot you attend this year!  Your entries into the grand prize CANNON gun vault are progressive: each event you attend, increases the number of entries you receive for that attendance!
