59th Canadian Trapshooting Championships
My squads started on time and except for a machine problem on Friday, no issues with targets or voice release. The machine that gave us a problem was replaced. No delay for the squad, as they moved us to the next field. The squad on that field had finished early and we only had one round to shoot, so we got to finish up without delay and the next squad only saw a delay of a few minutes.
Very hot (90 degrees / 30 centigrade). One of those weeks where a slight breeze or wind is appreciated. Saying that, depending on the field, doubles targets were challenging for some. Wind and doubles is like mixing oil and water!
The club had two dining areas set up. The day-to-day one in the club house and a temporary one near where the bunker traps are located. At the end of the line near where the club had designated practice traps.
The club had plenty of help on hand and overall the kids working the shoot did an excellent job (as well as the adults). A couple of hiccups here and there on the line, but resolved quickly.
Don't know officially (don't want to go there) what the software issues were, but I did see old fashioned figuring out shoot-offs on paper for Sunday being done. Just before I left I was promised results from someone that can be trusted, so just a matter of time.
When I receive them or become aware of a link to same I will send out a notice to those on my Google Groups mailing list (and put up a blog posting) so you don't have to keep checking the video/photo webpage.
The club had issues with local ordinances in regard to when shooting must stop each day. There was talk of the club being fined for shooting past the allocated times. I did see police at the club Sunday at 5pm. A fine of $3,500 (or more depending on how calculated) was quoted by some.
Three videos posted (singles, doubles, handicap), plus photos.

My favorite video is the singles event if your only going to view one!
I've been playing around with slow motion for the past few shoots and I hope I didn't go overboard, but thought the slow motion shots in the video looked pretty neat!
All scores posted.
