Commissioner's Cup Skeet Edition

Today was the the SCTP State Commissioner's Cup for skeet today . It was hosted at the Tuscon Trap And Skeet Range Much like for Trap.

It was certainly interesting shooting skeet In competition,  It Was my third time ever shooting the Skeet game The first and second being in the last two weeks at the Phantom Skeet Range on the west side of Phoenix.

The first round started at 9:00, it  was not my best score ever for Skeet, (13) , Next round the Coach lent me some really cool orange glasses, which helped a lot in the second round for a score of 13.  Last two stages where similar. My final score was 40/100. Not my best... 

The Squad for Today Was made up Of Me and two Other kids from the Trap team. All of us novice shooters In the game, and have Shot at the last two Events for Commissioners Cup. For the shoot our squad was paired with a team from  local Collage Preparatory Academy,

The Squad

 Over all the Rio scored 161,  and I think did really good this year.

Next week Will be very busy,  The 142nd NRA Annual Meeting is next week, Me and Dad will be there, Cant Wait!

Commissioners Cup TRAP EDITION

          Returned from the SCTP Commissioners Cup for Trap today. It was hosted at the Tuscon Trap & Skeet Club range.

Like The Ben Avery Commissioners Cup, It was Really Fun. My squad spent most of the day on the course, We where given 205  Rounds of ammo (200 for the main shoot, 5 spares.) for 4 stages, 50 shots at each stage.

 At the Event I was designated the Squad Captain, So I got to ask the standard questions of  "Squad Ready? Scorer Ready? May I see a Bird Please?", I got to shoot first & sign my name on the score sheet. That was cool.

In the event there was two rounds. 100 Shots each at two stations.

In the First round, My Squad was doing really well. Getting consisting Or better scores. I personally got
21 The First time, 22, the second, 20 The third time and 19 the fourth. At some point a small competition was set up between me and a fellow shooter to see who could get a better score.

The second round was almost as good, We got consisting scores On the first stage but the last stage was a problem. The Voice-activated launchers where not re-filled and many of us had to call 6 to 7 times tell a bird was thrown. so we missed some points with that and on the final stage we did not do as well as previous rounds; but we still did really good over all.

In a few weeks is skeet , cant wait!

The Squad took 3rd place for the Group of squads We were in.  All of the squad Did really well, One shooter on the Team got a 22 out of 25, the highest score on the team.
