Monday & Tuesday League Schedule
Shooting will begin at 5:30 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, as applicable, depending on what league night you are participating in. Please have your equipment at your designated field and be ready to shoot no later than 5:25 pm.
The Spring, Summer and Fall leagues consist of 5 weeks trap and 5 weeks skeet. Each week, weather permitting, the league will shoot two rounds of either skeet or trap (as scheduled). Each round shall consist of 25 targets. The league consists of 250 trap and 250 skeet targets.
League members may shoot practice rounds on Mondays or Tuesdays beginning at 4pm for the duration of the league at a cost of $5 a round (price includes tax).
If you know that you are going to be unavailable to shoot on some Monday or Tuesday evenings, as applicable, please bank ahead (shoot scores in advance) so that your team is not penalized. In addition, shoot a floating bank of scores that can be used in the case of an emergency, etc. To shoot a bank, first obtain a score sheet from the club counter, indicate what day you are banking for or label as floating, shoot scores, and return the score sheet to the counter. Rounds banked for a specific league night are already paid for with your league fee. Floating banks must be paid for when the float bank is shot. Floating banks cost $10.00. League members may bank rounds whenever the club is open, with the exception that no league rounds may be shot during a registered club trap or skeet shoot. Check ahead to see if the club is having a registered shoot on the weekend you wish to bank.
Be respectful of the other League Shooters. Banks cannot be done on nights in which opposing Leagues are shooting. If you shoot Mondays, do not show up on Tuesday to bank and vice versa. Please do not show up at 5:20 and try to bank, as league shooters are preparing to shoot for that nights League.
League members will pull and score targets for each other. Club staff is not needed to pull or score a bank.
The Club will provide personnel to set targets and load target houses.
Team captains (lead off shooters) are responsible for returning score sheets to the club house after shooting is completed.
In the event of inclement weather, the league president and the club manager will decide if the league will shoot. This decision will be made by 5:00pm on the day of shooting. If the decision is made NOT to shoot, it is the league member’s responsibility to make up, by banking, the targets for that week due to weather cancellation. Shooters will be allowed to bank until the second Saturday after the rain out date. This allows approximately 10 to 11 days to make up scores. If the decision is made to go ahead and shoot and a member is absent, a blind score will be used unless they have a bank available.
The league cost is $150 and includes targets (10 weeks), awards fee and league dinner. Once the sign up period listed above for the league is open fees can be paid at the clubhouse. The club will accept cash, check or credit cards. If you sign up for the league and cannot shoot for whatever reason, the league fee will be refunded up until the first night of shooting. Once shooting starts there are NO refunds.
