SCTP Nationals Day 4

Today was the last day of SCTP Nationals 2014. Rio did better then yesterday. Weather at 70 degrees sure beat 100 degree weather in AZ.  It was nice to have better weather then last year with high heat with high humidity. Better luck next year! I would like to thank Mr TrueBlueSam and Mr ILEngineGuy  for making the trip to watch us shoot and showing us the engines!

SCTP Nationals Day 3

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.

SCTP Nationals Day 2

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.

SCTP Day 1 plus bonus

Today was the start of Sporting Clays And most events of SCTP nationals in Sparta IL. The course lives up to the name of a national competition, I did better than last year. Mr TrueBlueSam and Mr ILEngineGuy 
came down to the range and watched us shoot and after we finished shooting Mr ILengineguy took out a few engines to demonstrate for us. (Photos to follow.) It was really cool ! Though I do not believe photos can convey what those kinds of engines are like in real life!
