LEAGUE EVENTS

 

2019 End of Summer League 

Leagues are a weekly competition, however, it is also a way to meet other shooters, improve your shooting, and have a good time. 

Thank you so much for your participation and sportsmanship.  

For questions contact Chantay Ramsey at leagues@elmfork.com

 

The Skeet Field:

Has eight shooting stations and two trap houses. Seven of the stations are arranged in a half moon between the two trap houses, and one station is directly between them. The high house, on the left side of the field, throws its targets from a trap 10 feet above the ground. The target rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it travels to the center of the field. The low house target, on the right side, leaves the trap house just 3-1/2 feet from the ground. It also rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it reaches the center of the field.

A Round of Skeet:

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets, with 17 shot as singles and 8 as doubles. The first miss is repeated immediately and is called an option. If no targets are missed during the round, the last or 25th target is shot at the last station, low house 8. The shooting sequence is as follows:

  • Stations 1 and 2: High house single; Low house single; High house/Low house pair

  • Stations 3, 4, and 5: High house single; Low house single

  • Stations 6 and 7: High house single; Low house single; Low house/High house pair

  • Station 8: High house single; Low house single

Skeet is shot in squads of up to five shooters. They move from station to station around the half moon, ending up in the center at the end of the round. Any gauge shotgun may be used, of any type, as long as it can fire at least two shots. The preferred shot size is #9, but nothing larger than 7-1/2 should ever be used. Since strength is not a factor, women are able to compete equally with men. Left handed shooters do just as well as right.

How 5-Stand Works…

There are five stations or stands and six to eight strategically placed clay target throwers (called traps). Shooters shoot in turn at various combinations of clay birds. Each station will have a menu card that lets the shooter know the sequence of clay birds that he or she will be shooting at (i.e. from which trap the clay bird will be coming).

How Sporting Clays work…

Sporting Clays is a clay target game designed to replicate every conceivable shot encountered in field shooting. On a Sporting Clays course, shooters are presented with a wide variety of targets that simulate the flight path of different game species (teal, dove, quail, pheasant and even a bouncing rabbit), such as flushing, crossing, incoming, and other angling shots.
