The fourth annual Hot August Nights clay shoot sponsored by Sunrise Dental was the largest ever, with 57 registered shooters. It also raised a record amount of money — $5,005 each for Labor’s Community Service Agency and Sunrise for Children, a program to help end child slavery. The event was held Aug. 26 at the Mid-Valley Clays & Shooting School in Gervais, Oregon.
First place went to the Machinists Lodge 63 team of Ken Kogle and his son, Zack, hitting 66 percent of their targets. Zack also was the top shooter, hitting 73 of 100 targets. Jaimie Garver, CEO of Portland Local 8 Federal Credit Union, was the top woman shooter, hitting 53 of 100 targets.
