Jim Roop Memorial Trap Championship
A beautiful fall day in New England to be outdoors shooting trap at ASC. Today
We had 13 shooters for the Jim Roop Memorial Trap Championship. A wonderful group of shooters at all different skill levels.
There were 3 squads of different abilities and the top shooter from each squad advanced to the final round along with 2 wildcard shooters.
The squad winners:
squad 1 Whit H
squad 2 Tony C
squad 3 Kip S
Doug H and Sam W
The pressure of the finals didn't effect Whit at all as he shot an almost perfect score of 24 to win the event. 2nd and 3rd place where tied at 22 by Tony and Kip which forced a shoot off. Tony prevailed taking Kip down to sew up the 2nd place finish.
All the shooters participated in an adios challenge. This adios had a strange start seeing Whit shot out first which was a surprise to all of us and then ending up with Tony and Kip in one of the clubs longest heads up battles but this time Kip finds a way to KO Tony to win. (this is under protest as Kip entered the adios after it started) lol. All in all we had a great day and even had pizza when we were done.
Special thanks go out to everyone that helped make this a great event!
