Sporting Clay Tournament - May 4th
Our Sporting Clays Tournament is right around the corner on May 4. Come on out and join us for a fun filled day of shooting and friendly competition. Don’t worry if you don’t shoot, we have it set up so everyone can have a great time. Just ask our Board President, Peter Greenberger! He came out last year with his son and they had a great time. Committee Chairman Kevin McEneaney has some great new ideas to make this the best tournament yet! Teams are comprised of 5 and will cost $750, or $150 per person which includes ammo, lunch and beverages.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
8:30 AM - 9:45 AM Check-in
9:15 AM - 9:45 AM Shooting Class
9:45 AM - 10:00 AM Safety Meeting
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM Annie Oakley Contest
11:00 AM - 1:30 PM Tournament
1:30PM Lunch & Awards
Check in will be in on the north side of the clubhouse. We will need you to sign a waiver before you can go out and shoot. This year upon check-in you will be asked to declare what Class you want to shoot in.
- Class A—shoot regularly and are confident shooting Sporting Clays. Cannot use mulligans for their score
- Class B—shoot on occasion and are relatively confident shooting Sporting Clays. Can use mulligans for their individual score
- Class C— novice or shoot a little but are not very confident with Sporting Clays. Can use mulligans for their individual score
Depending on the Class you register for will determine if you can purchase mulligans. If you have registered for a Class that can purchase mulligans you will be able to purchase up to 5 per person. They are $5 per mulligan. When you use your mulligan, you will need to put the ticket into the cup at each station as well as mark your scorecard to show which station you used a mulligan.
The shooting class we will be having is free. Please let me know if you are interested so we can get the number of interested to the club. After the shooting class we will be having a mandatory safety meeting. This is required by the club.
Following the safety meeting we will be having our first ever Annie Oakley Shooting Contest. This contest is optional but should be a lot of fun. The cost to enter is $10 per person. The rules are as follows:
Shooters take position at a yardage further than 20, typically 27 yards. 3 shooters mount their guns. The first shooter (closest to position 1) calls for the bird and shoots. If shooter #1 hits the bird, no one else can shoot. If shooter #1 misses, while the bird is in flight shooter #2 fires. If shooter #2 hits the bird, shooter #1 is eliminated. If shooter #2 misses, shooter #3 fires, and if they hit the bird, shooters #1 & #2 are eliminated. If all 3 miss, all shooters are safe. If a shooter shoots out of turn, or shoots after the target is broken, they are eliminated. The next round is led by the shooter following the one that broke the target, or if all missed, #2 shooter.
The top three split 50% of the proceeds. First place receives 25% of the proceeds, second place receives 15% of the proceeds and third place receives 10% of the proceeds.
After the Annie Oakley shooting contest, we will release all players out to the course to start the tournament. Players/Teams will be assigned a starting station. Players will move around the course in numerical order. After Station 15 the players will then move on to Station 1 and continue in numerical order. Once players have gone thorough all 15 stations they will come back to the clubhouse and drop off their scorecard with Karen Couwenhoven or Tracy Brantingham. Once the scorecard is dropped off players may enjoy the lunch that CATT has provided. When everyone is in and all the scores are tallied, we will begin the awards presentation.
This is a great event to try something new and have a great time. It is very laid back and everyone is friendly and helpful. You don’t need to put together a team of five to participate. We can put together teams of groups smaller than five and if you want to come out by yourself, we can definitely find a team for you.
