16 PULLUSA MAGAZINE FALL 2019 THE LEAD R A NGE ROV ER FOR 50 YEARS, TRAP SHOOTERS OF ALL AGES HAVE PACKED THE RANG- ES AT THE MINOT GUN CLUB. Today, it's student athletes who are at the forefront of the club's latest surge in popularity. Currently, more than 200 student athletes from eight local schools can be found at the MGC, honing their skills under the watchful eye of team coaches and club volunteers. "High school trap shooting at MGC started as a small puddle and turned into a big waterfall," said Minot Gun Club president Matt Monson, who has served on the club's board for 12 years and as president the last four. "We started with two Class B high schools and now have seven Class B schools and one Class A school. The kids and parents are great to work with on and off the trap field." Trap shooting has become so popular at the MGC that its old skeet shooting range was being removed to accommodate new skeeting stations and a half dozen new trap houses—which brought the club's total to 15 following the removal of four older houses. The expansion was made possible by member contributions and a grant from the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Club members, along with a number of local stu- dent athletes, performed the work. Monson said it was amazing to see the trap shooting community come together and to see the amount of work that got done over a short period of time. by DAVE POND V I S I T O U R WEB S I T E F O R M O R E L E AG U E N E WS A N D I N F O!
