Sadly, the trapshooting season is coming to a close in Utah. During September, shoots were held in Vernal, Spanish Fork, and Golden Spike. The weather for these shoots was anywhere from good to marginal. Generally, this can be a great time of year to shoot.
Joe Hanley from Nevada donated a very nice belt buckle to be awarded to the high cumulative score for the Western Zone Big 50’s that were held at Spanish Fork. The way the event was set up was that Spanish Fork held 8 Big 50’s throughout the summer. To qualify for the buckle, you had to shoot at least four of the eight days and play the Western Zone options and fees. We took the best four-day totals for each shooter and presented the buckle to the high score. This program didn’t garner as much traction as I had hoped, but we did manage at least five shooters every day. Unfortunately, only three shooters qualified for the buckle by shooting at least four different days. To no one’s surprise, Joe Sudbury was the winner of the buckle. Joe’s much better half, Deb, and Pam Wright presented Joe with the buckle. Congratulations, Joe.
Ogden, Nevada State Shoot, Autumn Grand, and turkey shoots. As you can see, this is about all we have to look forward to in the coming months. After mid-November, we are pretty well in lockdown as far as ATA shoots are concerned. With any luck maybe the new calendar year will bring a new and plentiful supply of ammo so we can be prepared for the next year which seems far away, but will be here very quickly.
