Results – 2017 Fish Fry Open

The 2017 Fish Fry Open began Friday July 14 with the doubles event starting under sunny, humid , and breezy weather, although before shooting was finished for the day, one could feel the humidity dropping and we finished on a very nice summers day.  Nineteen shooters went at it with some very nice scores turned in given the stiff breeze.


Chris Kline took high gun with a really solid 99.  Dan Rogowski took runner up over Kody Hoth after going five stations in a shoot-off of 97’s.  AA1 went to Ken Riddile with a 94.  A1 was taken by Kody with his 97 and the other 97 by John Brickner gave him A2.  John unfortunately missed out on the 97 shoot-off by leaving the club a little bit too soon.  B1 went to club President Mike Wojtecki with a solid 89.  Scott Holman’s 88 was good for B2.  C1 was taken by Lou Brickner with a 84 while C2 went to Ron Johnson with a 82.  D1 went to Marie Palmer who broke 74 and Willis Proctor took D2 with a 67.
