Sporting clays course on a skeet field

Underhill Rod & Gun Club located in Vermont is planning a May 10th 50/50 shoot.

50 5-stand and 50 sporting clays NSCA targets. Non-registered shooters welcomed.

The shoot is still in the planning stages and a flyer has not been released.

They have a very competitive 5-stand and offer NSCA each year.

For the first time sporting clays will be attempted. As the club does not have room for a full course they will convert two skeet fields into a sporting clays course for the day.

The concept can work and should be loads of fun.

I've seen the concept of using a combination skeet/trap field as a sporting clay course at Josée, a club in Quebec, Canada.

Josée puts on two 50 target sporting clays shoots each year, built around one combination field.

One of the better fun shoots I attend each year! My wife attended for the first time last year and it's already on the 2008 calendar.

It's run like FITASC, as each section (to include left and right of the field) is set as a parcour with only one squad at a time in a section. A section has two or more stations.

They have put a bit of effort into this and you see all the targets that you expect to see at any sporting clays course. Targets only require skeet choke, some say IC, with plenty of imagination going into presentations.

Something I posted in the past on the Josée club and should give you a good photo view of the concept.

Hat's off to a small club with a big heart!

They have been doing this for a number of years and have put much work into the concept, each year a new improvement.

I expect Underhill will have similar success with there sporting clays course!
