This event is for both serious shooters as well as beginners who want to try their hand at this sport, pick up some instruction from experts, and have a lot of fun without the pressure of competition.
The event will be held at Mike and Betty Long's Skeet Shooting Range just off River Road, on a beautiful knoll where a sophisticated set of remote-control automatic traps have been arranged to offer three different venues of shooting experiences. It will be open to the public and will take place rain or shine.
The emphasis will be on safety first, fun second. The entire shoot will be supervised by the experienced competitive shooters (Certified Instructors and Master Class Shooters). These Range Safety Officers will oversee all the shooting and enforce the highest standards of safety as well as give basic help and instruction for beginners.
There will be two categories, an Beginner/Introduction Shoot and a Competitive Sportsmen's Shoot. The fee for each shoot is $85 per person, and all participants are required to register in advance since slots are limited. The cost includes lunch for the participant and a guest, as well as the cost of the clay pigeons. The fee does not cover ammunition, which will be available for sale at the range.
The Beginner/Introduction to Shooting group will start at 9:00 a.m. and will include a brief safety review and then about 30 minutes of instruction and 90 minutes of shooting under the guidance of the Range Safety Officers.
Each participant will get in 50 shots at relatively easy and varied targets from each of the three venues, and the shooting will not be scored. The Amateur Shoot can take up to 15 participants. A limited number of shotguns will be available, but people without their own guns need to request one in advance.
The Competitive Sportsmen's Shoot will start at 11:00am and 2:00pm.
It will include 75 shots at more challenging targets on the three venues (5 stand, wobble and flushing game). This shoot can also accommodate up to 45 participants (30 shooters at 11:00am and 15 shooters at 2:00pm). Shooters will be scored and a trophy will be presented to the winner. We will also have an inter-hunt competition if at least three members of other hunts sign up. We will tally the scores of the top three shooters in each hunt, and present the winning hunt with a trophy.
Participants and guests can dig into a hearty lunch of burgers and pulled pork, slaw and drinks at the range.
