Mason-Dixon Clay Busters Fall News Letter

Important information please read thoroughly

Fall Fun Trap League

Three weeks down… four to go! The Fall Fun Trap League is going strong but there is still time for you to jump in and join the fun. The Sub-Juniors are putting up some big numbers however there are still lots of Weekly and End-of-League awards up for grabs!

ACUI’s Upper East Coast Conference Championships

A few of you are in (Thank you very much ) however we still need a couple more High-school Juniors and Seniors to commit so we can shoot the ACUI’s Upper East Coast Conference Championships at Prince George’s County Trap and Skeet Center on November Nov. 8–9, 2014.
This would be a great opportunity for our High-school Juniors and Seniors to score some really nice awards. Ladies, we could really benefit from your participation!

Early SCTP Registration (New members welcome)

As many of you know, the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is Mason-Dixon’s primary umbrella organization. Basically the SCTP provides us with insurance coverage and an avenue to compete in state and national competitions. The 2014-15 SCTP season started on September 1, 2014 so because we have a few fall events this year we think it would be best to open up the SCTP portion of our team registration early this year. This early SCTP registration would insure that everyone who participates in our team sponsored events this fall are covered by the SCTP’s insurance umbrella.

With that, our plan is to collect the $20 SCTP membership fee, starting today, from anyone who would like to participate in any of our fall events or just looking to lock in their spot on the team for 2015. Once we confirm all of our 2015 practice/competition dates and get all of our costs together, we will send out our 2015 Mason-Dixon Clay Busters team registration in November as we have in the past. Anyone who pays the early SCTP registration will lock in their spot on next year’s team and will be able to deduct $20 from their 2015 Mason-Dixon Clay Busters registration costs.

Click here to download the 2014-15 SCTP Registration Package. Fill it out and return it with a check for $20 made out to: Mason-Dixon Clay Busters, 213 Pine Street, Glen Rock PA 17327. If you have any questions please give me a call (717-235-0743) and I would be glad to walk you through the process.

Skeet League

York – Adams Game and Fish Association has invited Mason-Dixon members to participate in their upcoming Fall and Winter Skeet Leagues. This is an Additional Opportunity and not a team sponsored event. Participants need to be familiar with the game of Skeet and able to participate without the assistance of a coach. Call Matt at 717-752-6532 for questions or to sign up.

Coaches Needed

As you may have noticed interest in the team is growing and in order for us to keep up with this growth we need to be able to find new coaches and retain the great coaches that we have. Last year we had 12 people go through the NRA Coaches Training Program and become team coaches and that was a HUGE benefit to the program. Our goal is to do the same thing in 2015 and find and train a bunch of new coaches. If you, or anyone you know would like to become a team coach we would love to hear from you. As we did last season, we will once again pay for all training and coaches registration fees. Please contact me at for more information.

Gun Raffle

Most of you know how I feel about conducting fundraisers during the season however this one is just too good for us to pass up. MidwayUSA is sending us a Winchester Model 70 Super Grade .280 REM for us to raffle off next year. This gun is beautiful and would make a nice addition to anyone’s firearm collection. The money we make from raffling off this gun will go toward cutting the costs of our program. Stay tuned for more information on this and how you can help coming out in the next few weeks!

2015 SCTP Nationals (July 13-18, 2014)

Add these dates to your calendar because it’s never too early to start planning for your National Championship. I just sent in a deposit to lock us for 10 rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Sparta. This hotel is just 6 minutes from the World Shooting Complex so this is a HUGE win for the team. For those of you who are not familiar with the area, last year the closest hotel we could find was located 45 minutes from the Complex. As with the gun raffle, look for more information on this in the coming weeks.
