Jake Verbunker and Jim LaFave rounded out the top three places in A-class. Bronze also shot the only perfect 25 round this season.

In B class, Gary Finch led the way ahead of Al Arcand and Harry Toennessen. Nineteen shooters began the 15-round season spread over 17 weeks.

In skeet league, Hart Stuehmer won a shoot-off for class A first place over Bronz, with Frank Schwantner finishing close behind. Jim LaBreck was the class B winner, with Lafave and Mike Glass taking home second and third.

Perfect 25 scores were shot by LaBreck, Stuehmer, and Kevin Demers. The 15-round league boasted 18 shooters.

All-shotgun league scoring is done using a Winchester handicapping system. The club offers trap, skeet, and five stand shotgun ranges, along with outdoor rifle, pistol, and archery ranges. Indoor pistol and archery ranges are open during clubhouse hours, 2 – 9 p.m. every Wednesday. The outdoor rifle and pistol ranges are always open to members, except during shot-gunning on Wednesday afternoons.

The club is located 9 miles north of Manistique on M-94.
