Report from Stephen Marlow

We had a great time Thursday at NSSC.
We had college age new instructors with quite a bit of variation between them.  We were split up and rotated instructors throughout the day.
Vance, the master instructor, had fun with me and my “rifle shooting” tendencies.  Very good lesson for the kids as they will probably see a lot of their students who started out with rifle.
Actually learned a lot with them correcting my stance all day. Did really well with the clays and found two presentations that will need more practice.
Darrel, Caleb, and Jerry looked like they enjoyed themselves as well.

Report from Darryl Swann

It went really well.  We were split up of course but we ate lunch together.  Caleb and I each shot between 350 and 400 rounds.  We were sore for three days.  Even my trigger finger was sore.  I think we learned some stuff.  It might translate into more dove.  We’ll see.I already knew Stephen and it was good to see him.  I really liked Jerry.  We rode together.  Stephen met us down there.

8/18/12 Sporting Clays Shoot

Two officers and one guest (three total participants) had a good time at the 8/18/12 Sporting Clays Shoot at the Capitol City Trap & Skeet Club. It was an overcast morning and cool for August. We shot a 10-station Corporate Course that they had set up the day before. We shot whatever the signs said (true pairs, on-report outgoing bird first, etc.). The course offered a good selection of birds and two rabbits! We only had trouble with one top-of-a-telephone pole launched target where we went collectively 1 for 9. Randy Rowley came in first place with 39/50. Bruce Crockett came in second place with 36/50. Scott Timpany came in third place with 35/50. Each shooter one a box of donated shotgun shells.

Five youth shot 5-stand and five youth shot skeet. There were four KOZ adult helpers. It was hot, partly cloudly, and there wasn’t much of a breeze. FCS paid for these youth’s shells and their shoot fees from your ministry budget. We also gave away a T-shirt to the 5-stand winner and a T-shirt to the skeet winner.

We shot the Hunter course. It had been reset and was harder than it had been. The wind greatly affected the targets and kept the scores down. Ron Denison and I, Randy Rowley, tied for first place with 31/50. I went 2/8 on our last station, which put Ron in a position to tie if he broke all of his final eight targets – he did! Harold Terry and Jake Denison tied for second place with 29/50 (it was Jake’s high score) . Bruce Crockett came in third place with 28/50.

1/21/12 Promatic Open Sporting Clays Tournament (report by Bruce Crockett)
 
One officer, two members, and one guest (four total participants) had a great time at the 1/21/12 Promatic Open Sporting Clays Tournament at the Capitol City Trap & Skeet Club. It was a tough course, and the scores reflected it for a lot of shooters. I shot my worst score so far (46/100). Scott Timpany went from an 87/100 in the last tournament to a 57/100. Paul Ellis shot a 65/100 and Brian Suter had a 64/100, so they shot close to their normal scores. There were a lot of long crossers, so if you have problems with those type of shots, then you were in trouble. Note on their link ( http://capitolclays.com/scores/120121.htm) how many Master level shooters shot in the 60’s. Randy Barrington, a Master level shooter who usually shoots in the mid-80’s to around 90 in a typical tournament, shot a 67/100. Tony Rivera, the 2006 National Sporting Clays Champion, was there and shot a 90/100 for 2nd place.
