For one day, David Lang was perfect.

Lang shot 100 straight targets to win the A class in the Blackburn Excavating Singles at the annual North Okanagan Trap and Skeet Club’s Labour Day Classic in Spallumcheen.

Host club member Gord Fowler went 97/100 in the same event to win the B class.

“Despite not the best weather, the trapshoot turned out very well,” said Lisa Salt of the host club.

“There were shooters from Washington, various places in Alberta and one from Saskatchewan that turned up to shoot. There were nearly 100 shooters in total.”

Three shooters celebrated their milestone targets, including club member Don Haaheim from Kelowna at 100,000 targets.

Second was club member Burke Broadway (who passed away the week before the shoot), who was awarded posthumously for 50,000 targets and  club member Peter Enns from Kelowna at 50,000 targets.
