The weather wasn’t with us for the night of the Fox Shoot, nor the morning of the Tally Breakfast, but we had a a great weekend, and good results for the year, adding to the state-wide Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes total for 2017. Eight teams registered, one showed up empty handed, one showed up late, and one didn’t come out, so the results are shown for six teams.

  I would be remiss if I didn’t take time to thank a whole lot of people:
  • Our volunteers, especially Narelle Knapp for her tireless work getting so many amazing prizes for the shoot, Doug Cherry for organizing the barbeque, Bev and Geoff Kowald for organising the tally and the disposal of the carcasses, and our other volunteers who were so essential to this day happening: Scott Newbey, Kallum Blake, Jeff Baxter, Ian Knapp, and Bev and Ron Lockley. Thank you so much for making this happen!
  • To Ron Bryant from the SSAA (WA) for coming out to Katanning to have a shoot, to speak at the breakfast, and for bringing some goodie bags along. We are thankful to the SSAA who took up the sponsorship of the Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes events, and for their contribution of the $5 bounty to support the Regional Men’s Health Initiative. Also, we are looking forward to seeing his drone footage soon!
  • To the teams, who go out and make a difference, and still manage to come in for breakfast and be cheerful and bright despite being out a long cold night. Well done for getting those foxes, rabbits and cats!
  • And, last, but not least, to our many sponsors. Thank you for your contributions. They make these events happen!
