Spring Trap League
2016 SUMMER TRAP LEAGUE
As the old saying goes, "If it's not broke, don't fix it". The 2016 Summer Trap League will continue to be a 20 week schedule starting on Monday, May 9th and ending on Monday, September 19th. All scores must be posted by Friday, September 23rd. Shooters and Teams will have until Monday, May 23rd to join the league!!
The past few years we've had the summer trap league scoring weeks run from Monday toSunday, we've let our shooters shoot on any particular day of the week that works in their family/work schedule and we've let our shooters have the option to shoot 2 weeks ahead and up to 2 weeks behind the schedule. Nothing will change regarding those issues this year.
As always, if a shooter does not have a team and is interested in shooting on the league, please let us know and we'll get you on one pronto!!
The only change to the league this year will be the Team Sponsorship Fee, this year the fee will be $120.00, which was the price it was when I started managing the club in 2010.
