Club Skeet Info & Rules

Recent scores can be viewed here.

*****************************************************************************************************************

Thanks for making 2016 a successful year.  Let’s get ready for the 2017 skeet shoot series.  Please find the attached document which contains the rules and schedule for 2017.

Points are awarded each month based on your scores (as compared to others in your class).  This approach provides an interesting balance of ability and perseverance; a shooter that participates each month has a fair chance to have a higher score than a better shooter with intermittent attendance.  Also note that there are 5 events in each of the 3 classes and that each shooter can only win one prize; nominally, this means that you only need to place in the top 5 within your class.  We also had enough attendance this year to warrant a ‘High Lady’ prize; that was fun and I hope that we can continue that in the future.
 
Enough talking about competition; let’s talk about the social aspects.  While there is a level of competition, it is a very relaxed level.  More important is that this is an excellent opportunity to meet new people.  These people share your enthusiasm for skeet shooting.  They may be able to help you improve your game; you may be able to help them improve their game.  Either way, you’ll be shooting skeet (always a good thing).
 
So there’s my sales pitch for the new year.  Hope to see you out there.

General

  • The 2017 FWTS Monthly Skeet Shoots consist of 12 shoots beginning in January and ending in December.
  • Each monthly shoot consists of two events: 50 targets per event. An associated HOA score will be determined for shooters that participate in both events in a given month.
  • Shooting normally starts at 10:00 AM on the second Saturday of each month (see schedule below). Start times may move to 12:00 to accommodate the Saturday morning league, if necessary. When in conflict with organized NSSA and ATA events, monthly club skeet shoots will be rescheduled. The preferred alternate date will be the third Saturday of the month, if available. Notification of each monthly event is posted on the website (calendar).
  • In the event of a rain-out, monthly club skeet shoots will be rescheduled. The preferred alternate date will be the third Saturday of the month, if available.
  • Shooting is done on fields 2 through 5 (preferred fields are 3, 4, 5 and 2 respectively). Two rotations are available for each event for a maximum capacity of 40 shooters. If a rotation is required, all shooters will complete shooting with the larger gauge first, followed by the smaller gauge. Signup will start 30 – 60 minute prior to shooting times. Final squading will occur then.
  • Each shooter will be responsible to pay the normal round fee for each round shot. Additionally, each shooter will pay $3 per event towards the awards purse (no fee for HOA).
  • Monthly club shoots are open to all members, non-members, and guests; however, only club members are eligible for prizes.
  • Call club for additional information at (817) 244-9878.

Rules

  • Shoots will follow NSSA rules, with minor club modifications allowed.
  • Points are awarded for all events (by gauge and classification) and HOA each month. 4 points are awarded for first place, 3 points for second place, 2 points for third place, one point for all other participants. In the event of a tie, shoot-offs will be held at the conclusion of the last. Shoot-offs will consist of doubles on stations 3, 4, and 5; fair pair in the air, miss and out.
  • HOA shoot-offs will be shot with the smallest gauge or bore used for that day’s particular events.
  • Shooters who are unable to attend the shoot may pay their $3 entry fee before the shoot to be eligible for 1 point.
  • For the 20 gauge event; shooters who own a 12 gauge ONLY will be allowed to shoot the event using 7/8 ounce loads. Honor system applies.
  • A shooters score will not be posted until his sign-in sheet has been initialized by the cashier.

Classification

  • Three classifications will be available for each gauge and HOA. AA and A shooters will form one class; B and C shooters will form a second class, and D shooters will form the third.
  • A shooter may declare a class using their current NSSA classification.
  • For shooters that do not have a classification, a classification will be assigned based on the first available scores posted. Shoot management reserves the right to adjust this classification (up or down) if first available scores posted do not reflect the shooter nominal capabilities.

Awards

  • Awards will be determined, based on cumulative points, for all events (12, 20, 28, 410, and HOA) in each classification. Ties, based on cumulative points will be broken based on comparing averages; or if averages are identical, by a coin toss. An individual shooter may win only ONE prize regardless of how many events won.
  • In order to be eligible to win a prize, a shooter must have shot at a minimum of half of the targets thrown for that specific event during the calendar year.
