Trap & Skeet

Open Sunday's from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Occasionally, the clay target venues might be closed on a Sunday for unanticipated reasons. For instance, we were closed two days in 2007 because of storm related power failures. We were also closed two days because the snow was so bad, we could not get the plow to the clubhouse. If you have any question whether or not the club is open for shooting, we suggest you call (the phone number for the clubhouse is 440-474-4201) to confirm the club is open before making the drive.

We need Trap & Skeet desk volunteers as many Sundays have no desk coverage. If we do not have volunteers signed up, then we will not be open that Sunday. If you want to shoot, please sign up to cover the front desk. I will not continue to man the front desk when individuals that are signed up do not show up or do not have the courtesy to call and say they cannot make it on such and such a date. We have a large number of shooters and the numbers are growing. New members / new shooters -- Please sign up to take a few Sundays on the front desk or five stand this year and next. Sign up in the book at the clubhouse.

There are plenty of openings on the calendar!
Very few dates have been taken in 2014!
Pick your day to work the Trap & Skeet desk or the 5-Stand.

To Volunteer or get more information, contact
David Nofziger at (440) 679-0412.

5-Stand and Trap & Skeet Duty Rosters

The phone number for the clubhouse is 440-474-4201.
Note: the phone will only be answered on Sunday, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Our Trap machines came from

5-Stand

5-Stand is a variation of Sporting Clays shooting. Each round consists of 25 targets being shot from 5 different shooting stations. We have seven traps to throw a variety of different types of target presentations.

We need more volunteers to assist with running the 5 stand.
Please volunteer!


Sign up in the book in clubhouse or call Pat.
If we do not have volunteers, we will not open the 5 stand.

We need volunteers and shooters!

This is a good way to earn your work hour credits!
(if you volunteer to run the 5-Stand)

Please sign up to work one or two Sundays. Sign up sheets are on the desk in the main clubhouse. If you are an old or new member an would like to volunteer, but do not feel qualified to open and run the 5-Stand, we will provide training.

To Volunteer or get more information, contact
David Nofziger at (440) 679-0412.

2014 Match Flyer

The Nooks worked great! We'll be using Practiscore again. So you might want to go to Practiscore.com/Support and check out the tutorials on how to run Practiscore.

Since I figured out the Practiscore registration setup, you can register and select your squad at clubs.practiscore.com.

Squads 1-4 are for Saturday after Setup. Squads 5-8 are Sunday morning @ 8AM. And Squads 9-12 are for Sunday afternoon starting at Noon. Please register before 8:00 AM on Saturday, October 25. After 106 registrations last month, I need more time!

Registration went GREAT, so please pre-register. You must still arrive to sign in by 7:30, or you will have to wait until the afternoon squad to shoot. Those that show up late just delay the registration process for everyone. Show up early and we can get going sooner and get done sooner!
