Description: The Trap Club wishes to purchase new automated clay pigeon throwers (180 Sporter Commercial Traps), one SST rabbit thrower (trap), thirteen Deep Cycle RV batteries, necessary to operate the throwers, and a storage building to house the equipment. Currently operating with one manual thrower, the members have a lot of down time while awaiting their turn to shoot. It is expected that the increased capacity will be more efficient and position the Club to attract visitors and dollars to the community. This project enjoys financial or in-kind support from club members, CANFOR Plateau, and Omineca Source for Sports.
