Skeet Shooting at Amelia Island Shot Gun Sports

Sun 6/30, 10:00am, Skeet Shooting at Amelia Island Shot Gun Sports: It's time for something entirely new - again. Here's your opportunity to shoot things and destroy them, old-time Florida style. We'll be assembling at the Amelia Island Shot Gun Sports Club in Yulee, FL for a late morning skeet shoot. A "round" of skeet consists of 50 shots (rounds) at clay pigeons.  The course consists of 5 stations positioned along a ½ mile semi-circle.   Think of it as "skeet golf".  The fine folks at Amelia Island Shot Gun Sports will supply everything we need for a safe and fun event. All you need bring is sunscreen, bug spray and a comfortable pair of sunglasses or safety glasses (eye protection is required). For those of you without eye protection, the club will have a few pair of safety glasses we can borrow. Based on a turnout of 21 Sidetrackers the cost is $25 per person. If we have fewer members attend we'll adjust the per person cost upward pro-rata. The event should take about two hours so we should be good and hungry for lunch afterward. (http://www.ameliashotgunsports.com).   We'll meet in front of Ross' at the River City Market Place (by JIA) Sunday morning at 9:15 to arrange a carpool to the Gun Club. After a fun morning of armed destruction, we'll have lunch at Pepper's Mexican Bistro (http://peppersmexican.com/menus/fernandina-beach) on Centre Street in Fernandina ("On the island" as locals say). They have good food at moderate prices as well as a full bar and lots of TVs with the game on.

Leader: Owen Musselwhite[masked] (cell).

ADDENDUM:   We're limiting this to 21 attendees.  However, we encourage you to join a waiting list if you want to go.   We can work with the Amelia Shot Gun Sports club to accommodate more people if we have more interested in attending.

    This was soooo much fun! Never thought I'd enjoy shooting a shotgun so much! Really glad I had the meetup group to try this with, never would've done it on my own. Now I want to buy a pump shotgun!

    If anyone would like to carpool from the Southside area, meet at the Publix parking lot on Merrill Rd. near 9A, at 8:45. We'll be in the north east corner of the lot, near the Hess station. Dan [masked]

      Hi Joe, We'll all pay at the club house. They take ID in exchange for gun - so we each pay individually.
