Over 80 shooters from BC, WA, CA, OR and NV attended the 3 day shoot at Smith River, CA for the famous Crab Buckle Shoot. Some of the 1st timers attending were Bruce Mitzel (Tulelake, OR), Karen & Gary Hogue (Orovada, NV), Craig Wentworth (Merced, CA), Greg Deedon (Redding, CA), Chet Norcutt (Winnemucca, NV), Justin Evans (Elko, NV), Joe Stuart (Medford, OR), Glen Jager (Woodland, CA), Weldon Birch (Oakley, CA) and Tye Winegar (Madras, OR).
Bud Hoffman finally secured a crab buckle after trying for 15 years. Others winning a buckle for the 1st time were Greg Deedon, Keary Taylor, Cole Costanti, Zeb Kitchen and Brad Eatmon.
Weather was typical – sunny Friday, wind and rain Saturday and back to just pouring rain on Sunday. Hats off to Del Norte for a great job and to the trapshooters that toughed it out.
Attention shooters, Effective January 1, 2019, Oregon State Trapshooting Association target fees will go up to 2 cents per target.
All clubs should have received their new target forms by now. If you still need them, please contact Jennifer Carter or Mike Riggs.
This target increase will directly benefit the Oregon State Shoot as our trophy budget has not been increased in over 15 years.
This increase will also put our target fees in line with those of the other PITA states and provinces.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any OSTA board member or Secretary, Jennifer Carter.
Happy New Year and Good Shooting!
