    The post below is from Gail Miller, (CA State Director of SCTP) and got lost in another thread. The website is a terrific resource and let's the kids and parents stay up on all the scores, photos, schedules etc.

    If you want to see scores go to click on "Local Competition" then click on the shoot you want to see then click results. The last event in Stockton was fantastic - , huge turnout with 44 squads and the event was held in pouring rain but the kids put up incredible scores anyway - high score overall was Billy Slane from Auburn who posted a 99 during the worst rain of the day - way to go Billy! Billy is 12 years old and a very accomplished shooter and a wonderful young man.

    Do any other states have a similar website?

    You can go to casctptrap.com and see all the results for the SCTP Trap shoots in California. Also there are pictures posted. The reason the local shoots are not registered is we would have to pay the daily fee of $5/shooter. That is over $1,000 out of our program for this Saturday alone. The kids only shoot 100 targets at these local tournaments. When we go to the state shoot the contestants shoot 200 targets and these have to be registered. The Rookies shoot 100 targets. The cost for a Rookie to shoot these 100 targets is $20 for the targets, $10 to join the ATA (1/2 price), $7 to join the CGSTA (full price), $5 daily fee ($2 for the ATA & $3 for the CGSTA). Total cost for their first 100 registered targets = $42. This is for kids in the 5th grade and under. The SCTP is not run by the ATA nor are these shoots run by the ATA. The program is run by the NSSF through local volunteers. In fact we run our own state shoot in conjunction with Kingsburg Gun Club. We do run our shoots under the ATA rules. The primary objective of this program is to introduce new shooters to the shooting sports. Many of them go on to shoot registered targets. Gail Miller CA SCTP State Trap Director

    Keep up the good work Gail - the CA program is alive and well.

    Something needs to be clarified here....Anyone who is participating as a SCTP member needs to be a member in good standing with the ATA and the CGSTA prior to the state shoot...not signing up at the state shoot...prior...in fact the way the rule book reads it seems that to participate in a SCTP shoot a child should already be signed up in these. To make this clear this is a once a year charge..not everytime a child shoots... yes the first shoot can incure all these cost however once you are a member of the ATA a renewal is mailed to you and you can mail in the payment...any director for the CGSTA can renew your dues and issue your sticker for the new year anytime after September 1st when the shooting year begins.....as for not registering targets due to the high cost of daily fees...if you have 44 squads you can surely afford the daily fees as the entry fees usually cover targets and trophies and I doubt that 220 trophies were given out...at 20$ per 100 you are bringin in quite a chunk of change...the fees that would be charged are not coming out of your bottom line anyway... you would be adding the 5.00 to the cost...Santa Ynez Sportsmen's Assoc. held a SCTP shoot this past weekend...everyone ,including the rookies, shot 200 rounds, for a total cost of $50.00 ($45.00 for targets...$5.00 for fees) not one person complianed it was a great shoot...a little windy..but great shoot...we need more SCTP shoot to be registered in my opinion .....

    I agree Kym. More registered birds for the kids would be a great way to reinforce the rules and etiquette of ATA competition and they can get their membership requirement out of the way early instead of creating the traditional registration logjam at Kingsburg.

    My son shoots for Sacramento SCTP, we practice at Coon Creek on saturday mornings. Coon Creek is hosting the winter chain this coming weekend so I suggested that instead of cancelling practice that we have the entire team shoot the singles event on saturday morning. it would be 100 rounds instead of the traditional 50 they shoot for practice but they're used to shooting 100 in a SCTP event anyway.

    the kids get to shoot for 1/2 price so it's not too much of a financial burden.

    ffwildcat asks if any other state has a similar website.

    The website above is for the Eastern Cornhusker Trapshooting Conference website. It is for the eastern third of Nebraska. The high school/junior high league has been in operation since 1977. The league has six shoots each season. The protocol is 50 singles targets followed by 50 handicap targets. Handicap yardage is set by the average of their 16 yard score rounded up. (minimum yardage of 18). {i.e. A 41 in singles will result in a 22 yard setting for handicaps}. Awards are given for team (squad) and individual singles, handicap and overall.

    On April 7th (week four of the league), the weather in Nebraska was not ideal. The temperature in Omaha was 15 degrees at 8:00 AM and the winds were averaging 30 mph with gusts of 45 mph. The league has grown to the point where each weeks competition is held at three venues to handle the number of shooters. More than 1,200 shooters representing about 50 schools competed in the meet (numbers were down slightly due to the weather and it being prom weekend for a number of schools). There were 97 squads at Harry Koch trap range in Omaha, 87 squads at Lincoln Trap and Skeet and 59 squads at the Beatrice Gun Club for this meet.

    There is a similar league for the middle part of the state and of course the western part of the state is a hotbed of outstanding shooters. All the shooters come together in early May at the Cornhusker Nationals. It is a three day event (one day for junior high, two days for senior high). This will be the 38th year for this event. Last year had 1,721 shooters, this year it may top 2,000. I watched a young man shoot the event with a Model 12 last year that his father used at the event 25 year ago. They even have an award for the best score by a second generation shooter (soon they will have to add a third generation award).

    wildcat...what a great idea for your team... We also encourage our team members to shoot in local and out of town ATA shoots...Our team usually practices on Sat afternoon but if there is a local or fairly near ATA we hold pratice on Friday and then many of the kids go and shoot in the ATA..not only singles but handicap too..some have ventured into doubles..this is the sprit of the SCTP, introducing young shooters to the ATA (or NSSA or SCA). By holding registered shoots for the SCTP the fee that the shooter would be paying ($2.00)goes to the CGSTA...this daily fee is part of how the state association operates...given that the Junior Program that is active through the CGSTA gives the SCTP trophies for the SCTP state shoot it would be nice to see some "return" in the way of registered shoots...

    Tach....hats off to your young shooters for showing up in those conditions...it just goes to prove if they love the sport they will shoot in any condition...keep itup
