On April 29, 2022, the PDCA Pacific Coast Chapter gathered for its annual Scholarship Shoot at Birds Landing Hunting Preserve near Oakland, CA. Nearly 150 shooters participated in the event, generating $29,000 in scholarship funds that will be awarded to West Coast students pursing deep foundations careers.
The annual gathering of the pile driving industry on the U.S. West Coast took place on a picture-perfect, spring day. Attendees enjoyed lunch and fellowship following their participation in the shooting course. The Chapter even handed out special awards for those who stood out for their shooting accuracy, and in one case, inaccuracy. Those awardees included:
Brian Evans, Pat Karinen, Dick Hatfield, Dave Rhodes, Robert Perata, Rod Dubois, and Joe Karinen. The Duck & Cover honoree was Jeff Parkhurst. Congratulations to all!
