The fall 2021 edition of the Timber Crier, the NHTOA’s quarterly magazine, has been delayed due to inadvertent computer issues. The situation has now been rectified, however, so look for the Crier to be delivered soon.
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.
