Great job to our Trap Shooters for this amazing season!

The Silex FFA Chapter was very impressed this year with all the trap shooters.

All the dedication that was put in from the members showed throughout the season. Silex FFA wants to thank all the parents and other supporters that came to the shoots and the people who put in their time or the cost that trap shooting requires.

Silex FFA hopes for more great seasons to come in the future.
