Commissioner's Cup

Went to The Arizona State SCTP Sporting Clays Commissioners Cup Yesterday.
It was hosted by The Scholastic Clay Target Program and was on the Ben Avery Sporting clay fields.

It was alot of fun. There was 103 squads competing. 3 people per squad.

In The Shoot, there were ten Stations  and all were either set up as Report Doubles* Or True Doubles** and 10 shots per station.  The way station order was set up was there were 2 teams per station. In my case my team (The Rio Salado Target Terminators)  was paired with a team out of Prescott.  It was interesting talking to them. One commenting that it was nicer to shoot down in the valley with little wind then up north. needless to say it wouldn't have surprised me in the least if they won something. The Rio Squad did ok, around 70 - 75, some firearm malfunctions happening here and there but not common. all the teams and most, of the people running the stations where very kind, like offering advice if The shotgun was malfunctioning.

It was really fun, next week Is Trap shooting down in Tuscon. Cant wait!
