Trap events started for Rio today. Weather was pleasant with a fair breeze. Over all every one had at least one off round. Winds at some points blocked out voice pulling. But still beats last year with 100 degree temps with high humidity. Scores averaged out in the seventies. Not our best but we will do better tomorrow ! Today I got my first 25 in competition. Beats the 24 last year. Updates and photos to follow.

Today ended the events for sporting clays at National s today. Rio did better overall then yesterday. Weather was pleasant and much better then being in Arizona. Little wind to mess up the birds and even got a fly over by an F-22 Raptor. After shooting was finished, Rio got to meet and get a picture with Larry & Brenda Potterfield of Midway USA. Really neat! Updates,links and photos to follow.

Starting this season my goal as a joke due to a few unfortunate 24 scores including one where i failed to hit the very last bird...Today I guess I finally did it.
With our SCTP club and many others there is a tradition of shooting a shooters hat if they get a perfect 25 on trap. Some hats are reduced to a little bit of the bill and thats it and others are still wearable with minor repair needed. A shot hat is a trophy of bragging rights.
The tiny blob is the hat being thrown in the air with a clay inside. Eight of us were on the firing line and shot at the flying head wear. I missed.

Windy does not even begin to describe the conditions yesterday in Prescott ,not only did it act as a tail wind to push clays down, three porta-podies toppled over due to the wind*. The main problem with the wind and the Rio team was when it wasn't there, the clays just about hit escape velocity. Rio's older team had a average of 21, doing well until what felt like a wall of wind hit us and gave the clays god-mode. Our final score was 422, landing us in 4th place. Rio's younger team took first in their class,
Updates to follow on Sporting Clays in Flagstaff later.
*no one was hurt by the falling porta-podies.
