    Would this be a good first event for a new shooter?

    Sure, but then they're all good.

    For the Western Zone shoot you'll not only be competing with shooters at your site, but with shooters at the other eight sites also.

    Yes you can.

    I doubt that there will be target minimums imposed at either of the sites that you mentioned, but I don't know that for sure. There are no target minimums being imposed by the Western Zone, but the host sites can impose them.

    Scott, clubs imposing target requirements must also post that information in their shoot brochure? Hap

    That's correct, Hap. They can't just decide to do it.

    The only sites that I expect might have target minimums are Chugiak (AK) and Bend (OR) because they are holding the Zone in conjunction with their State Shoot.

    But I haven't seen any of the other programs, so that's why I'm not sure.

    Are there any links to a shoot brochure? The only information I received from the owners of coon creek was to show up on Thursday at 8:00am. Being new to the game I would prefer a little more information. Thanks

    Well this will be my first shoot, just started shooting trap on May 13th of this year. I’ve been reading the ATA rules and want to know what to expect? Will the rounds be 25 shells-targets at a time or 50? How many shells should I carry with me? Amount of time between rounds? Do I shoot 100 targets on both Thursday and Friday to qualify for Saturdays shoot?
    Sorry for all the dumb questions, just what to be prepared.

    Husky 44, I'm not sure this would be a good shoot for you, being your first time GEORGE the owner of Coon Creek does not put on a very good shoot, (been their done that)

    Bow377,

    I hope you were kidding about George. Coon Creek shoots are always well run and it is a great facility. Regardless of your level of experience, there will be friendly people there to help you understand the process.

    Husky44,

    if this is your first ATA shoot, and you don't have an ATA card yet,
    it will take you a bit longer to sign up but the handicapper will be
    able to help you fill that out and answer any questions you have.
    Also, George has the best prices on shells (even better than wal mart)
    in case you run out or need more. In regards to 25/50 shots? it will
    probably depend on how many scorers they have, but most of us carry
    4 boxes so we don't have to go back to the car and just go on to the
    next house :) Coon Creek puts on good shoots.

    Domenic,

    I'd expect them to shoot 25 targets per house over four houses. Take four boxes with you (100 shells).

    There are no "qualifying" events. Shoot whichever events you want.

    The Singles Championship on Saturday will consist of 200 targets but that will be shot 100 at a time (everyone will shoot the first 100 and then after a short break (usually, so the trap help can eat) the squads will be called out to go through and shoot the 2nd 100.)

    I guess what I’m confused about is the number of shells to carry (have several flats), do I carry the shells in my vest or can I keep them near by in my shooting bag? Reason I ask is that I don’t want to hold anyone up leaving the line to get shells.
    I plan to arrive 90 minutes prior to shoot time to sign up. I live near Coon Creek and have shot there every weekend since May, consider it my home club now. Thanks

    Dominic,

    You'll take 25 shells to the line with you (in your vest or pouch), then when your squad moves to the next house, you'll go back to your bag and get another box, and so on for the other two houses one right after the other until you've shot the 100 targets in the event.

    Then on Saturday you'll do the same thing. You'll shoot 100 targets, get a short lunch break, and then shoot the second 100 targets.
