Saturday, September 21st started, for the most part, as a typical fall day for this area of Pennsylvania, reds and yellows starting to appear in the foliage, partially cloudy with ground fog in some areas, temperatures in the mid to high 40’s but a threat of precipitation later in the day. Perfect conditions for the sixth annual Harry D. Propst, M.D. Sporting Clays Invitational. At least, that was the opinion of the 142 shooters, according to Joe Stark, owner of Catskill Pheasantry, the largest number of shooters in the facility’s eight years of operation. A large turnout of volunteers, 50 plus, to support and ensure that the shooters had a good time, were also in good spirits. As a result of the combined efforts and collaboration of Catskill Pheasantry Manager, Jeremy Gulley, John Conte, the Hospital’s Director of Facility Services, and Patty Dunsinger, the Hospital’s Chief Accountant, registration went very smoothly and in spite of the largest number of shooters in the history of the event, they were out on the course, ready to go, ahead of schedule. Procuring a sufficient amount of ammunition for our guests was not quite as smooth, as Gus Heberling, of Heberling’s Sports Shop in Prompton, and Jeremy Gulley had to pull out all the stops and work overtime to acquire an adequate supply.
