Hunting seasons are upon us. The leaves are changing colors. Most of the local shoots are over for the year. Spanish Fork held its second annual Rocky Mountain Open. I was out of town on a family vacation, so I could not attend. By all accounts, there was a good turnout with okay scores.
The Overthrust Gun Club, on the Wyoming border in the town of Evanston, Wyoming, held a small two-day shoot. I attended Saturday and shot the doubles marathon. Club manager Nico Elardi posted his first ever one hundred straight in doubles. Good shooting, Nico.
Next came a one-day shoot at Golden Spike Gun Club in Brigham City, Utah. Turnout was moderate, with good scores.
I guess that most people are ready for a break from the long season of shooting registered targets, which is the reason for small turnouts at these shoots during the first month of the target year. The weather is generally perfect this time of year, so the target presentation is also excellent.
The ATA announced All-American Teams, and Utah had five people make the team: Sean Hawley, Britt Dalton, Joe Sudbury, Grayson Stuart, and Pam Wright. Congratulations to all of you.
The Utah State Teams have also been posted on the Utah State Trapshooting web page. Be sure to look at all the information on the website utahtrap.com.
