Prado Olympic Shooting Park, (www.shootprado.com – chosen to host the shooting events of the 1984 Olympics, is known for being especially welcoming to both complete novices as well as experienced marksmen.
Shooters were organized in groups of 5 and had the opportunity to shoot two games of 25 clays each while rotating positions after every 5 shots. Both 12 and 20 gauge shotguns were provided by Prado, thereby allowing attendees to choose an appropriate shotgun. The more experienced shooters also shot skeet.
But even if you decided not to shoot, as several people did, there was plenty of fun and camaraderie in the shaded picnic area where a continental breakfast was offered in the morning, followed by a tasty catered barbecue courtesy of the Tulsa Rib Company (www.tulsarib.com).
Save the date for 6th annual shootout 4/8/16. See you there!
