The results of the Winter Multiplex are posted on the Shoot Results page – check them out.
There is one last thing to complete this season – ties for High Over All. For the 1st time since it started in 2008 there is a 3-way tie for High Over All and CA HOA. Jimmie Puckett, Jason Nelson (both of Newman) and Mac Robertson (Del Norte) are tied with 699/750 for these titles. How will this be settled is a question we all asked and to find the answer we went to the PITA Rulebook TIES section. Flipping a coin didn’t sound easy and using long run was out of the question as one shooter had 50/50 on the 1st event of the season so….On February 23rd at 10:00 a.m. a shoot off will be conducted at their clubs with ultimately there being a HOA Champion, CA Champion and ….you know the rest.
Congratulations to the other High Over All winners – each receives a custom made Multiplex HOA pin:
- BC – Tom Ginn 677/750
- CA – to be determined after shoot off between shooters listed above
- CO – Paul Dible 688/750
- HI – Earl Higa 673/750
- ID – Jerry Hewett 656/750
- NV – Rich Bullard 695/750
- OR – Scott Julian 695/750
- WA – TJ Main (WCT)/Jeff Mitchell 679/750

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!
