    Help me here. I'm trying to figure out what are the really important events at the Grand. I followed the links from this site to see the scores, but I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the events listed there.

    I thought your premier events were:

    *Clay Target Championship (200 - 16 yard singles);

    *Grand American Handicap (100 - handicap targets);

    *A 100 target Doubles event (name unknown to me); and

    *A 400 target HOA event based on the above 400 targets (name unknown to me).

    So help me. What are the names of the big 4 events I should be looking at?

    Also, I can't find any event called Clay Target Championship in that list of scores.

    Also2, What's a Grand Slam in trap?

    Event # 18 would have been the Clay target Championship. The Grand Slam is 200X200 in singles, 100X100 in doubles, and 100X100 handicap from the 27 yard line. There are several HAA and HOA events by different manufacturers/sponsors. You really need a program for the event to figure them out. The event numbers for the HOA is #18 ATA Clay target championship, #21 The Grand American Handicap, and #22 the ATA Doubles Championship. Rick Gibbs

    Thank you k120ltc509. The scores at the ATA didn't have events 18, 21, 22. I'll check there tomorrow. I thought I saw earlier a link to another on-line scoreboard, but I can find it now.

    Regarding a trap Grand-Slam, I presume that's a life-time achievement, not something accomplished at a single shoot.

    I think Stu Welton has a 400 x 400 also.
