    I have to yield to my rookie status. During a multi-day trap shooting competition, how do the events (singles, handicap, and doubles) usually play out? For example: Day 1 - all singles events or mixed, etc.

    Thanks for the replies in advance.

    For the most part, each event is a contest on it's own but there are times when 200 singles will be shot as a single event or marathons will be thrown with all of the same type event; for example a singles marathon of 300, 400, or 500 birds or the same with doubles. Then many clubs might have a handicap only shoot with 3 handicap events on one day. Reading the program should advise you just what is planned and asking for details when signing up helps too.....breakemall

    Claykiller, During a larger shoot, such as the Southern Grand, the preliminarys start on Monday and run through Thursday. They are usually 100 singles, 100 handicap and 50 pairs of doubles each day. Friday will be 100 handicap targets to start, then the day will finish with the doubles championship. Saturday is the 200 target singles championship and Sunday will be the 100 target handicap championship. If you download a program from one of the upcoming shoots you will see the rules that apply to the various shoots as well as target requirements. Hope this helps. Gary B.
