Location: Valhalla Hunt Club & Kennels
Hosted By: River Deep Foundation & Denver SCI Humanitarian Outreach Program
Participants: Craig Hospital, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO,
Quality of Life Plus
As part of the ongoing project with Colorado School of Mines, the students and Chris Ravotti from the Therapeutic Recreation Department of Craig Hospital, Scott Huyvaert with QL+, and myself, Bob Adwar, gathered at the Valhalla Hunt Club trap range to test the adaptive equipment for shotguns. The device is designed for paraplegic individuals to be able to participate in shotgun sports like trap, skeet, sporting clay and upland bird hunting. It holds the shotgun which takes the weight off the user, so it helps with the follow through of a moving target, a critical aspect of shotgun sports.
The enginereering students lead the test. The rest of us shoot using the device and offer feedback. We are all pleased with the results, so only minor adjustments will be made before we return for another test.
