There is an upcoming Alaska State Sporting Clays Shoot with events beginning on Thursday, July 30 at 5pm at Grouse Ridge in Wasilla. There is more detail at the association's web site and/or see the attached flyer. Below is an email from the association's secretary with more detail. We do need to register ahead of time so GR knows how many participants to plan for trappers and food. We also need to register with the national association but we compete within our own class (new shooters will be E) so don't think you need to shoot in the 90's on a 100 target course to compete.
The association's website is http://www.aksportingclays.com/
Alaska Sporting Clays Members, this email is meant to inform you about the upcoming Alaska State Sporting Clays Shoot. Attached is a flyer with more detail, you can also access the Association website at www.aksportingclays.com. You’ll find a banner with a link to the official schedule of events and registration forms. The registration form has instructions for emailing or faxing the form to Grouse Ridge. It’s important to pre-register for squadding purposes, we want Grouse Ridge to have enough staff to support the number of shooters that want to shoot. I also attached the form and schedule of events.
The events begin on Thursday, July 30th at 5:00pm. You MUST call ahead for squad assignment for these events.
Friday, July 31st have FITASC, SxS, Sub-Gauge and the Preliminary events, hours are 9:30am till 9:00pm. There is a lunch special available and a “cook your own steak” dinner special available at the Club.

The Association is hosting a sponsored BBQ dinner for all Main event competitors after shooting is concluded Saturday, we’ll even have some free beer on hand so please sign up early, it will help us plan the correct amount of food and cups!
Also, any shoot-offs that need to occur will be held Saturday afternoon before the dinner begins!
Sunday, August 2nd, will see the Second 100 birds of the Main Event. The range opens at 10:00am and there will be a shotgun start at 11:00am for the event. Grouse Ridge is sponsoring a Spaghetti/Salad/Garlic bread lunch for all competitors.
Any necessary shoot offs will be held after the event conclusion and the Annual meeting for the Association will begin immediately after any shoot off’s.
Trophies will be presented to the winners after conclusion of any shoot-offs required.
The Annual Meeting will include an election for All Board Member positions, it’s important that we have as many members present as possible, both for nominations and for input to the Association.

The drawing for the Blaser F3 being raffled off by the Association will also occur. Some tickets are still available so if you want one, contact one of your Board Members…contact information is on our Website. You do not need to be present to win the Blaser.
Folks, we really need your participation in the meeting, all Board Member positions, President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Director positions are all up for election. Please be thinking about nominations for these positions. We need your input and your participation to make the Association work… After all, this is about you, the Shooters.
