The Lake Fork Chapter of The Well Armed Woman met at their usual location, J&K’s Trigger and Bow Shooting Sports range on FM 154 south of Sulphur Springs, Texas. There were 21 in attendance at the November meeting. NRA Instructor, Ladale York led the Distinguished Expert course of fire for ladies that achieved their Expert level of the Winchester Marksmanship Qualification Program. Those that are working on other levels watched to see what was instore for them. A photographer from the Sulphur Springs newspaper came to photograph this epic event.

After the shooting was complete and guns put away, everyone went inside to applaud the shooters receiving their awards. For the Distinguished Expert level each received a Certificate of Achievement, an embroidered rocker that completes their patch and rockers, a medal, and a small lapel pin. Each also will be reported to the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program’s Distinguished Expert roster of recognition. After refreshments were shared a group picture was taken of the members in their new purple chapter shirts. 

There will not be a December meeting and shoot. But join us January 5th to hear Mandy Bachman, IDPA Social Media, talk about competitive shooting and demonstrate the proper way to draw from a holster. Although it’s getting dark early we will make the best of our time. We will shoot from 4-5:45pm (or dark) and go inside for the program from 6-7pm. Non-members are welcome but you must be a member before you can shoot…it’s an insurance requirement. For more information contact Peggy York, Lake Fork Chapter Leader at 903-473-2185.

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 10)

FAIR. Water stained; 80–83 degrees; 1.71’ low. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and topwaters. They appear to be starting the fall pattern in shallower water. This is great news for the lunker fisherman and continued reputation of producing the biggest largemouths in Texas. White and yellow bass are good on Alabama Rigs. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows in the stumps or man–made structures. Catfish are good on prepared bait and cut bait.
