  • A winning, randomly drawn ticket will be removed from further random drawings. Purchasers of multiple tickets are eligible to win more than once with different tickets.
  • Random drawing winners will be contacted by the PITA and will be posted on the shootpita.com website
  • A random draw winner my transfer their prize in full by notifying the PITA in person or in writing to whom the prize has been transferred and by providing a contact number.
  • Winning tickets are not redeemable in cash by the PITA
  • Winners need not be present to win

Once again this year the PITA will be providing new wired BRB Voice Calls on every trap at the PITA Grand Pacific to be held at the Spokane Gun Club July 21-27, 2019. We will be offering these 20-sets (used for the Grand Pacific only) to gun clubs for $895.00 per set, first come-first served – so don’t wait to order! This is a great deal for essentially brand new BRB Voice Calls and they will sell fast. Contact Mike Riggs at riggsconstinc@gmail.com or John Adams at jadams@eotnet.net to order. Payment will be required to confirm order.

Bulkley Valley Rod & Gun Club has added two marathons to the calendar:  March 30 (up to 500 doubles) and April 27 (up to 500 handicap).  If your club wishes to add shoots/marathons contact your State or Provincial Secretary for approval.

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.
