This event uses the 25 yard pistol, 50 yard rifle and 100 yard rifle ranges. It is a fun shoot offering practice for formal Sporting Clays, Five Stand and Trap. Use is made of portable trap machines, the club’s permanent trap machine and the club’s hand trap thrower to launch clay targets either as singles, report pairs, simo pairs or ”twofers” (2 shots to hit 1 bird). Three portable shooting stations are positioned on the rifle or 25 yard pistol ranges. The various trap machines present different target trajectories, i.e., quartering, crossing, tealing and arcing shots at each shooting station. The positioning of the trap machines and shooting stations changes each week. A relay consists of 24 rounds, typically 4 report pairs (8 rounds) from each shooting station. Participants rotate through each of the shooting stations similar to trap, moving to the next station after shooting their 4 report pairs. No formal scoring is kept. Two relays are usually run at each shoot.
