What an incredible weekend!!! The weather was perfect, the food was delicious and the fellowship was rewarding. Oh yea I almost forgot, there was a Trap Championship this weekend!
First up was Saturday’s PA SCTP Team Championship. Our Intermediate Entry squad of Jacob, Brody, Brandon, Clair, and Dawson finished in second place with a 375. Also taking second place in their division with a 432 was the Intermediate Advanced squad of Dan, Darin, Nathan, Adam, and David. Also placing was our College squad of Brandon, Stephanie, Bridget, Brain, and Dalton.
Light winds and beautiful skies opened Sunday’s PA AIM Championship. The AIM competition differs from the SCTP as it includes both team and individual awards. Our squads did very well placing 2 squads in this very completive AIM event. The Sub-Junior squad of Dan, Darin, Nathan, Sam, and Dawson took home first place while our Senior squad of Luke, Stephanie, Spencer, Brian, and Dalton finished in second place breaking a Mason-Dixon team weekend high 474 out of 500 targets. The 474 was also good enough to capture the runner-up spot in the High Over All category and win the team $1750 that will be placed in our Midway Foundation endowment account!!!
Sunday’s AIM event also saw four Clay Busters win individual awards. Dan Riale won fifth place in the Sub-Junior event. Stephanie and Dalton brought home third and first respectively in the Senior division and Dawson finished in the top spot in the Pre-Sub category.
All those ups and downs and all that hard work really does pay off and I would be remiss if I didn’t recognize the efforts of our outstanding coaches. I would especially like to thank Jesse Smith, John Elmore, and Steve Beam for all their help and support. Great job gentlemen…. Look what your athletes accomplished!!
While some of you move on to Sporting Clays this weekend, others will set their sights on Maryland’s AIM Trap Championship at Harvey Cedar Gun Club.
Please make plans to attend our Team Awards and fun shoot on June 25th at Jefferson Sportsmen. Also remember to send me a “Yes or No” regarding the SCTP Nationals in July. Visit http://doodle.com/5egbymdh8cn5zrec to make your choice.
