What was e-Shoot?
E-Shoot was a trap competition conducted by e-mail by Maryborough Clay Target Club, Queensland, Australia with the purpose of promoting our sport and strengthening the bonds of friendship between trapshooters around the world. Each club shot the event at their own club and submitted their scores. Entry was free! All you had to do was nominate your club using the form below or email and scheduling the event in your program before the end of December
The Event.
50 target Double Barrel Points, scored as 3 points for a first barrel hit, 2 points for a second barrel hit and (of course!) 0 for a miss, shot from 15 metres. To suit the discipline of ATA shooters that was 50 single targets from 16 yards, two shots per target
(see next option), moving from station to station. Clubs in North America have the option of shooting the event single barrel at the request of some clubs. (The scoring for single barrel competitors is 3 points for a hit, zero for a miss.) The perfect individual score is 150 points.
Targets - traps were to be set on a minimum of 45 degrees, ie 22.5 either side of centre, but you had the option of shooting wider angles if you wish.

The Team.
Each team was two A Grade, two B Grade and two C Grade shooters, with the top 5 scores to count. The sixth score came into play in the event of a tie. If a tie still eventuated those clubs would be contacted for a shoot-off.
This system was wide open to cheating, but trap shooters are honourable people and we trusted that everyone would honour our trust.

We had a nomination from a club with only one A Grade shooter - they substituted a B Grade shooter in place of the second A Grader. You can 'up' the grade of any shooter, but please note you can't do the opposite - i.e. substitute an A grade shooter for a B or C. Clubs who claim to have no C Grade shooters are in trouble, as C Graders are the new shooters and the future of our sport. Time for a membership drive! All members could shoot the event and clubs sent in the top two scores in each grade.
Grading.
Gradings vary around the world so for the e-Shoot the gradings are:
A Grade - 94% and over
B Grade - 87% to under 94%
C Grade - Under 87%
These percentages are calculated from the last 200 targets shot in registered competition. For example a score of 189 gives a percentage of 94.5% and puts the shooter in A Grade, or a score of 171 is 85.5% and that C Grade, etc.

Any club submitting a perfect score of 750 points will be disqualified because any C Grader putting together a perfect score shouldn't be in C Grade!

The Trophy.
Maryborough Clay Target Club provided a trophy mailed to the World Champion Club inscribed with the names of the team and sent to the address provided. Every competing club received a participation certificate via e-mail and each competitor with a perfect score received a personal certificate to mark their achievement and entered 'The 150 Club'.
Nominations (entries) close on September 30th
