There's probably about forty volunteers that are behind the scenes they can network so it's an integrated community group of individuals a well oiled machine. This is the first year Kodak right per share and that I guess a clip was phenomenal on in the number of volunteers they put up inside the building just to help out with Lucent stuff escorting people through the building. Mean that that is like clock down NASA security inside there and she's coming through. No the first step to wait rom vehicle up to train hang in getting it geared up and they would have volunteers a screen throughout the entire building.

And jumped at the opportunity and have been involved with the committee percents to great group so is like sporting plays a hobby of yours otherwise Niagara shooting quit amid a lot of traps back and it was a high school actually had a trap club. And I started with that and then this growing up in a sportsman Stanley hunting fishing it's just tolerated it. Now this event said roster Brooks gun club you remember their match and I am not yet that's sober friends that are so I think I do get to go quite often. Yeah and maybe can introduce needed them I have one friend and he works to gain much dead to ever take me this is a wonderful opportunity man this is a fantastic gun club if you never meant not to Rochester Brooks gun club. It's the look at our caller and it's like the I don't know the Oak Hill. Celebs you can sort search class got just means that an overstatement. Dance silly though it's it's. I know they have national shoots there and there's everything from you know trap to Steve to to sporting clay courses along with both pistol or rifle that's a mean it's just a great facility. With this event specifically. Revolves around the sporting plays and is this something just for expert scanned a beginner somebody that's never done it a novice. Intermediate there's something for everyone here. There's definitely something for everyone you don't have to be to experience shooter to shoot at this event there's plenty of support supplied by the club people every station to make sure people handling handling firearms safely and they're getting top reflect yet that's very important numb I'm glad you brought that up so any time you start talking about. Firearms people's butt cheeks can clinch so. Let's. Wanna make sure we're very adamant pointing out that this is a safe controlled environment whistle experiencing. An educated. As sportsmen and instructors. On hand here so the deadline to registered for this event is June 27 so he still have time today get involved banker digits it to do so quickly. It's limited to a 196. Shooters and coaches and it's almost 200 us a lot of shooters.

So tell me about the competition portion of this I show I'm registered I've paid my money after practice. Time I brought covering my god it's ulyetza Kurds you don't have to do but yes you have one bring it all right so me imam mosque burden and 35 waterfowl shotgun because I don't have it attract gun. Our clay gun rather eyes so what do what happened walk me through Monday. So you walk into registration you get registered get hooked up with a team if you don't have one. A lunch is provided before hand. Briefly to walk around look at all the silent auction items that are there. Than there's a briefing for safety and that everyone must attend before heading out to the field. There are two courses a yellow and blue I believe and one is for more experience shooters in the other solo the last year. Your skill level. When you when you get into registration and then there are several stations of which. You'll shoot several times and each one in Europe you pull the trigger seven plus times a day it's a. Ryan yeah no I remembered from last year when you know we're in from my notes I think there's like 72. Johnson had 72 rounds you get the to send down range and these are fun if you never shot. Exporting plays before. Now explain to people it's not ski and it's not trap. Woods said sporting a glaze apart from the two. So sporting clay is it's more of a wooded setting and so you're standing in a box and there's a series of of plays that we either a match you. Over your head left to right so it's more like simulating actual honing. There it is like trapper ski or stand position you know Warren. The targets are gonna come from it's kind of a surprise and station. There's there's a little bit you know you gotta react correct you know so you instincts there are being on this Lee being mean on the the funds skills you get to a employee. In cheating sports I come into play here what are my favorites are what he gets called the ones that roll across the ground autograph that. Yeah I loved those those are fine. Is even if you miss it looks like you hit something that's right yeah it's the best. Since 275. Dollars to register per shooter if you want to force on. 11100 bucks a good chance of grabbed three friends in you know it's a win win win win win in that situation don't make me explain that.

And what's really cool I've never done it that we knew attend these events. I'd be sure to take time to watch the guys that. You know our enthusiasts then like I imagine. That would be. It's really cool it's if you get lucky you can watch somebody get a Willie. And that is one of the coolest thing you've ever seen.

Also there's another overnight times I believe at Valhalla which isn't in and over and is a pheasant hunt great facilities it is premier honing. Good stuff man that I am wondering and I'm sure that'll bring in some good money are right quick impromptu pop quiz here on the am wonder ran somebody give me the caliber anyone know. Let's say 36 and some thirty caliber yeah ever expose enough third through this game show you went. 900 points. Which. Legendary American general called someone to ran to the greatest battle implement ever devised. Don Imus wants one I'd have to say on I guess time. Cannot lock UN with general Patton without an answer are you don't care if that's right meant. Well he gets it's that's good stuff yet that's fantastic that's now is like two. Suited to do my history on those agree that that weapon came to prominence in our World War II. Also during the Korean and now war conflict as well and that will conclude our and Teague time. Educational portion of this morning's program so let's move on to the casting for character fishing tournament. I'd last year if memory serves me correctly. It was earlier in the year wasn't it like back in May. Yet we were gonna do it in May and then as ironic as life can be spring flooding our fishing tournament have flooded out you know it's kind of crazy we could mean we get docked boats into the dock at the marina because you know they weren't floating docks and I'll go figure. So the there's a week and a half in a movie fishing tournament August which create a lot of logistical issues but. Where the salmon fishing is fun nominal and August and the and all the members talent through and said hey we as much fun we do it again the journalists. I also soared on where we moved this year to do that the nineteenth and twentieth of August 2 point is a prime day that we've kind of gotten over flow already going on of the nineteenth so it's. Be exciting them about. Probably about sixty teams in total fishing out there now. Two days that'll be it'll be great is a charter captain events you don't have to know anything about fashion. Mary vial licensing go. And it ended in the fish we catch them on like Ontario is absolutely phenomenal you never Donnan it's gonna want the best kept secrets our region Helen Fisher has. And I in May be that I do my best to get the word out man I certainly do I mean outside of Alaska. And possibly Washington State's. I don't know we're gonna find a better Trout and Sam annoyed fishery. Absolutely easy would normally we are world class destination people come from all over the country and all over the globe. Today to salmon and Trout fish in our area whether it's on the big Lake Erie even our tributaries. Are just loaded with them. All year round you know for the most part is such a great fishery now lad was last sure one day event. We we we didn't we on one on one day last year so we're girl a grown yet and and import that look the challenge where we are running this year and the LO seed every two C sort of get two for one deal. You get to compete with that so that means if you really you know bring in a nice fish you can wanna cash prize to the OC derby as well which is critical. But that also kind of limits on but the charter captain availability. Miss a requirement to get a bigger boats to their teams of four. So with that you know the small little you know boats and fireworks LLC has some some limitations on a charter captains are actually available to do that. About 25 captains in that market that are able to do that for us that really caps us we have 2 flights however morning group and afternoon group. And then we'll have a late Sunday afternoon group as well. It's not entry for casting for character fishing tournament. I will cost you 400 dollars per individual. Or you can get a team natural cost you 16100 dollars. And just for what it's worth that's what it. Chartered able gosh it's not more what you throw in and all that stuff so. And this is you can do something really good for the scouts he can have a great day efficient. And you can. Accomplish both was less than you could probably do one any other day. So. That school and in the guys that big charter a lot of these guys from our area. And how would imagine with this event you got a lot from the agency river charter boats association. Top notch man those are some knowledgeable anglers out there and they mean it does have such an intimate knowledge of this late. I mean it's it it's it's amazing when you get out there on the match Thomas Trout and salmon fishing you guys do on a bass angler. And every now and now go out with people it's so funny men these guys if they don't hit. The Sam they don't get into the salmon are the same and they won it's like they can go I think catch lake Trout it will. It's like they they're like Colin their shot like Babe Ruth back in the day with that one home run. It is just amazing that talented these guys and if you can get on a vote with them. For 400 bucks that that that's a good deal there. So let's talk about the competition portion of this that we gave everybody do the logistics of it what important again we don't need any poachers so go get your station license that's one thing we ask that you do. Before you you get involved week we mention it's a two day event your year different flights so let's talk about the competition now is out is that canal. Yes there's really two parts so from a participant you have the whole LC's Jerry opportunity so there's Dave prizes and another two week tournament prizes well. Who has 15100 dollars up to Indy prizes to I think 25000 for a two week experience penciled onto the LOC group and and and there rules apply but for all that but they'll won those rights don't present the prizes within the season and tournament. But for us one of the things is really NASA's one of the founders of the of them launching 28000 dollars in prize money for the charter captains. Passing your fishing experience individually you play in the LC derby but your captain plays a mr. So he's going for about 8000 dollars in prize money anything get past that he's going to be ecstatic he gets a thousand of its mix of very good payday for him. So with that they're motivated to make sure that you purchase and have a good today. And that we had a captain in their last your first time in the tournament and these group and in last year in the tournament and he just let them vote and open water and full throttle right. To where he wanted to go and when they put 42 browns in two hours and a vote. Four guys and and honest series on fishing. And they had a great time doing and of course you know Iraq if he wins prize for most fish but I mean you just at all times in two or threes. Brown's McDonnell times it was is grant and the captains really have a great time and they really want you have a great experience and and it's it's not uncommon to have people command within a fifteen point sound like trance having cut that many browns in my life. Like a cumulative. Yeah it is -- it's crazy how well listen these these guys are phenomenal and I know the water that we don't you when I go on the boat with you know. Trolling will play official day and I can Jennings bank utilities guys and it's unbelievable experience and what they do and where they take care and and that they know the lake very well and good channels that's for sure. Dead mandated them die you know I think over her while I'd sounded like out overstated. The quality of charter captains we have in our area that you guys just backed it up. Even more Sosa yet that that 8000 dollar pot that's a tight line awards. And I blue lane he said Moulin GM lane G. Is there were we Astrid pony up that kind of money I should pronounces the name properly. Now did did I mention did you mention in your answer there that there's a prize for most fish net. NASA will do lose prizes they do largest fish in each category so. They'll do five price categories the largest native first second third they have kind of a sliding scale for. Prize of the of the captains and also most fish caught so what captains and they come on the boat Dolan will ask your front you won a lot of Fisher you wanted to push. And depending on your answer depends on where he's going. Handsome and depends you know it's no you to point pound. Now seminar lake Trout on there that may take you twenty missed out party get an end to dynamics line it pulls out so it's. By not gonna get a lot of those are of course reform half hour window. Actually be like a one or two of those before I've won them but it's gonna need a lot of time in a gonna catch a lot of tension but you'll have a lot of fun. What would jeer a preference be what you wanna do for numbers are on to joke. I like the they're going to meet today in about yeah absolutely yeah Ali efficient the other weekend I mean in my girlfriend and we finished Hartford two days and tie it. Probably eleven small amount fast which we were targeting but every one of whom was over three down to is like I was a terrible weekend we hardly got anything. About that we had you know we're in a tournament that's today's word. Big sex there's so yeah now I've Micah hunt for the Baghdad's. You know one I'd rather fight one of those than thirty small ones but you know. It's not heightened tension numbers is boring or anything when you're out there on a day when you're getting insulin like the volume he said it's like a video game. Now it's absolute immediate gratification. Out there on the water so we we talked about the the entry into the lot derby that is a big deal until onion paint there's guys that have been generations. Of have. Anglers have been competing. In this event and you can double dips of that school as well so most fish big print big fish may recession. That's coming from Palmer's two big fish prize. And that goes to any angler to catch is a brown Trout steelhead. A lake Trout or salmon. That breaks the New York State record while they get their late cut work cut out for a but I guarantee there's a win. And it's their settlement is X and a couple more recent years that have ordered really close to that line. But yet Kim Palmer Palmer threw 2% rise up plants in another prize opportunity for the participants but at a 101000 dollar cash prize if you're able to. Rick a record one it's actually six different categories through Trout salmon.

Their get involved and people don't do that just if an event is boring these are great events. Yeah but how what big picture. What did these events mean to the scouts as a whole now I mean these are. Really help us raise money to help run the organization and it Morton when things you'll realize a Boy Scouts local councils exists all around terrible dollars.
