Sporting Clays in Lethbridge
« on: June 11, 2011, 08:15:41 PM »
Just to let everyone know there is going to be a sporting clays event on July 2 and 3 at the LFGA Range in Lethbridge. 200 registered on Saturday and I think 100 non-registered on Sunday.

The terrain in the coulees is absolutely ideal for this type of event and last year it was a great couple of days. Entry fee for each day includes shooting, prizes and lunch. There is camping at the ball diamonds across the road and there will be a steak dinner on Saturday night put on by the local PF chapter.

Should be a good time if anyone is looking for something to do on the long weekend.

I tried Sporting Clays for the first time last year at Crowsnest. Had a great time, sure was a lot of fun with some very nice people. I will make every effort to get to the Lethbridge shoot this year. When I think about the Sporting Clays i think about those "rabbits" and the little flat clays, starts with a B i think, very challenging for me.
Challenging is a nice way of putting it, i bombed out pretty hard. LOL Was great fun though !

Crowsnest is one of the best events there is, absolutely great people running that place and a great track as well, to which I should mention there event is this coming weekend June 18th.

You must be thinking of the bateau's. On a windy day they can be nasty.

The one rabbit stand at Lethbridge last year was set on a 10 foot cut bank and the shooter was below probably 10 or 15 yards away. Nothing too special except the rabbits start on top so your shooting slightly up and if you miss on your first shot or shoot late they would fall off the top and continue rolling on the grass 10 feet lower, but you never really knew when they would drop off the top.

The incoming "albatross" stand was cool as well.

You could see them float down a 1/4 mile before they were in range.

Definitely one of the best areas for cool targets.

I would feel bad beating you with your own gun though  ;D

Being a complete newcomer to sporting clays...how many shots per station are required?

Maybe we should put a few beers wager on the outcome.... ;D

Depends on the station - the Saturday shoot is 200 birds and the Sunday 150.... you need a flat and a half of shells.

And you may not want to cheap out on the wally world stuff - I may lend you the "jammer" auto..  ;D

I'd be on this like an outdoor writer on an anklet, but I'll be back in SK that weekend.

Is the Sporting Clays course set up year round or is it just for this event?  Do you need a membership or anything to shoot a round?  I'd love to scratch that Caesar Guerini's itch.

Hey Waxy the course will only be up for this event, if we put something together again later we'll let you know. As for the Guierini what kind of self control would you need to have that sitting in your gun case through two pheasant seasons and not run a round through it. I should have abused that thing when I had my hands on it. I truly blame myself.

Was at the Crowsnest Pass shoot last weekend - a great bunch of folks that put that shoot on...

lets bump this up to see if we can ensure folks know about the Lethbridge shoot - should be fun.
