Dale Basl Memorial Bowling Pin Shoot

June 27, 2021

Remembering a Long Time Club Member and Volunteer

Ten participants showed up at the short range on the morning of June 26, 2021 to celebrate the memory of member Dale Basl by participating in the Dale Basl Memorial Bowling Pin Shoot.  Dale was a long time club member who worked with the junior shooters, loved to teach shooting, loved to shoot, and the bowling pin shoots were one of his favorite.


This first stage of the shoot consisted of two paper bowling pins targets at ten yards at which each shooter fired five rounds each.   Then each shooter moved on to stage two which consisted of ten bowling pins on a table and three clay targets in a holder.  Here each shooter had 30 rounds to attempt to knock all the pins off the table and break all the clay targets.  If they were successful and had rounds left over they took those rounds with them to stage three which consisted of a bowling pin hanging from a string and a paper target.  The shooter first had to hit the hanging pin and make it swing then if they still had rounds left, they could shoot at the paper target for score.


After all the pin knocking was done, honors for the mornings shooting fun went to:


1st Place  Tim G.

2nd Place  Neil D.

3rd Place  George A.


Thanks to all who came out to honor Dale’s memory.
