Dale and I wanted to let you all know that we lost a very close and dear friend and a fellow shooter on January 13th, 2021. (George Thomas) Allen Cove January 6th, 1940 - January 13th, 2021 passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Our hearts are heavy, but the memories we have we will hold close. Al loved getting out to either St. Hubertus, Wpg Trap & Skeet and BRGFA as much as he could. He loved sporting clays and skeet, but often he would let you know how much he hated trap!
Dale and I spent a lot of time with Al, working out at the range, and in 2015 we practiced the entire spring preparing to travel to the World’s in Minnesota that year. Al loved competition and travelling out west, down south or just out to Brandon for a shoot.

Shooting with Jon Kruger
Al and Kelly loved to “gossip”! Like 2 old ladies, or as it was pointed out that they were like the two “old grumpy guys” in the balcony on the muppets. Keeping on top of what or who was doing what in the shooting community became a conversation Al and Kelly enjoyed to have, drove Dale crazy!

Al’s passion was shooting, but his love was his family. He spoke about them often and worried about getting home to Loretta and first Kody and then Brady. He was so very proud of his son, Brian and his daughter Karen and loved his granddaughters to the moon and back and had a story about them every time we were out at the range.
We wanted to do something to honor Al’s memory and after much thought and most fitting…Al loved dropping targets…the further down he could get them the better! Last year we held the first Long Bird Challenge that was to become an annual event. This event for 2021 will become the Allen Cove Memorial Long Bird Challenge. The proceeds made from the event will go into training and education for youth and lady programs at BRGFA. Dale and I will be sponsoring the plaque that will remain at the BRGFA clubhouse and a trophy for the winner (s) of the competition. The winners of the event in 2020 will be the first to be added to the plaque.
"I am better for knowing you, better for having met you and better for having you as a dear friend and fellow shooter.
May you be as blessed in the next life, my friend, as I was in this life by knowing you.
Shoot ‘em up, Al"
