The Mother Lode Gun Club Nuggets got their 2023 California Youth Shooting Sports Association (CYSSA) season started Saturday by competing in a tournament against area programs at the Angels Gun Club in Angels Camp. 

The alarming weather conditions in the area — including a tornado touching down only 13 miles away, near the Nuggets home trap range in Jamestown — didn’t slow down the 125 shooters from five different teams, which included Sonora High, Summerville High, Lincoln High, Team Angels and the Nuggets.
