2013 Thanks! On behalf of the Cherryville New Years Shooters I would like to thank everyone for making the 2013
New Year’s shooting event a success. Thank you to all the police, fire, and medical personnel that
made this year’s event safe and orderly. We could not do this without your involvement. Also to
Gaston County Schools for the use of Rudisill Stadium for the final shot. This gives spectators a safe
and enjoyable way to see the shooters. This year we had approximately 400 shooters from several states and many
spectators from surrounding cities and states. And a big thank you to the City of Cherryville and local
citizens for allowing this tradition to continue now and the many years to come.
