In 2002, a member of the Rod & Gun Club, Roger Everitt passed away, so in 2003 several club members decided to put together a trap shoot in his memory. Memorial Shoot Committee has been instrumental over the years in organizing a two day trap shoot, the first day an open trap shoot is held for anyone who would like to participate and on the second day there is an ATA Registered trap shoot where shooters must be a member of the ATA to shoot.
Over the weekend they also hold a raffle of donated items from local businesses and supporters of the shoot and they also offer a chicken barbeque. Since the inception of the “Roger Everitt Memorial Shoot” the club has donated a portion of the proceeds from this 2 day event to the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Over the years the 4-H has used these funds to purchase shooting equipment, a gun safe and directly by the members of 4-H as they travel to State and National competitions through the 4-H shooting sports program.
The Silver Lake Rod & Gun club has been a huge supporter of the 4-H program not only through their generous donation but also personally as they open their club to members of the Arrows & Clays 4-H club to come and practice shooting both trap and skeet. They have also hosted the State Shotgun Team practices as the team prepares for competition at State Achievement Days every summer.
Susquehanna County 4-H would like to thank the Silver Lake Rod & Gun Club for their generous support over the years.
