Hello MWA Trapshooters,
It looks like the weather (hopefully) is becoming more and more trapshooting friendly. It is been a brutal winter with very few decent weather days on Wednesday or Sunday.
We are planning on having a spring league, but are waiting till after the big ATA event, The State Team Singles Shoot, which is the 21st and 22nd of April. We will have some kind of spring league starting in mid-May. Watch for the time and details at the club.
This will be the third year in a row that Logan has hosted the State Team Singles Championship Shoot. It is a two day shoot, with Saturday being a normal ATA program of 100 singles, 100 handicap and 50 per of doubles on the menu. On Sunday is the main event, 200 single targets, the Team Championship. Each team is made up of a class A, B, C, D shooter and a new shooter. A new shooter is a shooter who has never shot ATA registered target prior to the current target year. The current target year started on September 1, 2017.
Last year at the shoot we had 25 squads shoot 200 singles on Sunday, with 22 of those squads being teams. We had seven teams from Logan competing with a Logan team taking 2nd place. (In 2016 a Logan team was the winner).
We are hoping to put together even more teams from Logan this year. This is a very fun shoot to participate in as you shoot on a team of your fellow Logan shooters, competing in the name of your club. It really is not a serious thing, but really fun to be in the team atmosphere. The winning team gets to take home a painting of an “all class squad” that they keep at their club for the next year. The Logan Trap Club actually had the very first team championships shoot 18 years ago and had this painting made. If you like to shoot trap, this is a great way to get your feet wet in ATA competition. Ask at the trap counter or call me (Gary) to find your way onto a team. Hope to see you on Wednesday evening or Sunday afternoon at the Logan Trap range - Thank-You
