Neujahrsschiessen / New Year's Day Shoot: We tried something different this year and had a Bird Shoot (Wooden Eagle Target), only we used Mauser Match type rifles instead of .22s this time. Congrats to Dave Hale for firing the shot that dropped the bird, after he and the two dozen or so other participants softened up the bird with around 288 shots. It was a chilly morning, but the good spirits that accompany a new year -- well, that and a couple of fires -- kept the frostbite and hypothermia at bay. Thank you to Max Koehl, Terry Beachler and John Wiesbrock for contructing and painting the Eagle.
