(Courtesy Photo) Roachdale Gun Club team members recently competed in the 2011 Indiana AIM State Clay Target Championship at the Indiana Gun Club in Fortville, Indiana where one shooter earned himself a trip to the Grand American World AIM Championships in Sparta, Illinois.

Eleven-year-old Daniel Williams traveled to the world championships, where he finished second in the White Flyer Pre-Sub individual ‘B’ class, breaking 183 out of a possible 200 targets. Williams was among 1,028 participants shooting at the AIM world championships.

The Roachdale Gun Club recently added a third National Rifle Association (N.R.A.) and Amateur Trap Shooting Association Certified level-one shotgun shooting coach.

“All of this would not have been possible if it were not for a grant from the Friends of the N.R.A, in the amount of $3,946.31 in ammunition and targets,” coach Leonard Smith of Spencer said. “Show your support and join the N.R.A.”

For additional information regarding the Roachdale Gun Club or on how to become a member of the shotgun club, contact Smith at 812-821-0831.
