Silver Horseshoe Trap League meeting to be held this Sunday

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Thanksgiving Sunday was a bit on the cool side, but really a beautiful fall day.

I don't know if it was the weather or if a lot of fellows were sent out of the house while dinner arrangements were going on at home, but in any case an exceptionally large number turned out for trap shooting on Sunday morning.

This Sunday (October 16), the Silver Horseshoe Trap League will hold its second meet of the new season at the Galt Club. Hope to see a good turnout in Galt.

Still on the subject of trap shooting, the Waterdown club will hold its monthly house league meet on October 23.

For many years, one or more of the Waterdown club members have taught Hunter Safety, F.A.C. courses (or whatever name the course may have had at any given time since you may have taken it). Since 1974, Percy Allen has kept abreast of the latest regulations that have changed many times during that time period. If anyone has firearms in their possession that are not registered, Percy can advise them of what action they may take to dispose of them or retain them legally.

There is a Firearms Possession and Acquisition Course combined with Hunter Education coming up at the club starting October 17, 18 and 19, with the exam on October 24, with a second Hunter Education session scheduled for October 25 and 26. Anyone interested in these courses or taking the exam if they feel qualified should call Percy at 905-689-4245.

My fishing activity this past summer finished quite a while ago. Hopefully, I'll be able to make up for it next summer.

Some of my friends are still getting their last fishing in before the snow flies. Glenn and Marilyn Buttenham broke the jinx they had been experiencing and had great luck catching Rainbows on the October 1 weekend. They were fishing on Colpoy Bay near Wiarton. Marilyn kept Glenn busy netting fish and I suspect she outfished him.

Closer to home, Trevor Matfin caught a 33-pound salmon off the dock at Bronte and a smaller 8-pounder that is now in the family freezer.

Late fall fishing has long produced some large fish for those that have the courage to go fishing when the weather gets colder.
