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)
