On a warm, beautiful late-summer day, members of the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association (NHTOA) and dozens of friends fired their shotguns at soaring clay birds, enjoyed each other’s company, had a great outdoor picnic, and in the process raised more than $10,000 to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (ChaD). The Log-A-Load Fun Shoot event, held at the Green Mountain Shooting Preserve in Effingham, N.H., on Saturday, August 21, 2021, was part of the national Log-a-Load for KidsTM program in which loggers and wood-supplying businesses raise money to support children’s hospitals to provide medical care to kids in need.

This year’s Fun Shoot was the sixth annual co-hosted by CHaD and the NHTOA, and attendance reflected the enthusiasm for the event. A total 90 people, including families, participated this year.

“People who own timberland and who are in the forest products industry are outdoors-oriented by definition,” said Jasen Stock, NHTOA executive director. “Shooting sports is a natural for them, and support for our sporting clays trap-shooting event is growing tremendously. The fact that the Fun Shoot benefits CHaD, one of the best children’s hospitals in New England, also encourages great participation.”

Sponsors supporting the Fun Shoot included: Wagner Forest Management Ltd., Farm Credit East, J.M. Champeau, Hancock Lumber Co., Bridgewater Power, HHP Inc., Zambon Brothers Logging, HB Logging, Madison Lumber Mill, Santor and Sinnemon CPAs, Peters Logging, and Richard Carrier Trucking

The 7th annual Log A Load fun shoot will happen on August 20, 2022, at Green Mountain Shooting Preserve in Effingham. 

 

The NHTOA is a non-profit statewide coalition of landowners, forest industry professionals, government officials, and supporters who work together to promote better forest management, conserve our working forests, and ensure a strong forest products industry.

We strive to conserve New Hampshire’s working forests for future generations through public and industry education, legislative advocacy, outreach, and cooperation within the forest community.
