2020 Sunshine Classic

Post by Innocent »

Folks those that knew Hugh McCombs will miss him. His wife Lynette has graciously promised to host the 2020 Sunshine Classic as Hugh had already started the process prior to his death. Please feel free to share with any and all silhouette shooters and I look forward to seeing you in Jacksonville in March!
