PARIS – The Norway-Paris Fish & Game Association will hold its annual chicken shoots Sundays this month at the shooting range on Route 117.

The shoots on Sept. 12, 19 and 26 consist of many rounds of trap shooting along with running deer competitions. Trophies and prizes will be awarded at the end of each day.

The club hopes to unveil its state-of-the-art Pat-Trap clay target throwing machine during one of the weekend shoots. Proceeds from the three shoots go directly to a fund to send area kids to the Maine Conservation School each year.

The first rounds of shooting begin at 10 a.m., and the final round ends at 3 p.m. There will be a concession stand and all shooters, young and old, are encouraged to attend. For more information, phone Mark Truman at 743-7445.

The club reminds local trap shooters that the Wednesday night weekly shooting competitions will continue at the range. The format for Wednesday night is trap shooting only and the action begins at 5 p.m. and ends at dark. Each round costs only $2.50 and all proceeds benefit the club.

Special targets are released at random that allow a successful sharpshooter the chance to win a free round for. The public is welcome to compete. For more information, phone Sam Giles at 890-8325.
