The 2020 Winter Skeet League is underway.

The 2020 Winter Skeet League is underway. You can start shooting your first 100 birds on Thursday January 2nd. You can sign up for the league any time up to January 19th as long as you shoot you shoot your 1st 100 birds by the 19th. Any missed rounds during the 1st 100 birds will be scored as the league average minus 2 birds. Cost for the league is $45 plus shooting fees. Juniors under 18 before Jan. 2nd are $20 for league fees. Single shooters are welcome. We’ll hook you up with a team looking to fill up their squad. The league uses a handicap system so don’t worry about your scores. Everyone has a chance to win.

We’ve got some new shooters this year, so if you see some new faces around the club welcome them aboard and give them some pointers on how the league runs and how to stay safe out on the skeet field. Rules are the same as last year. I’d like to keep them as simple as I can. This is a fun league and I want to keep things as fair and easy as possible. Rules and league info are posted around the club and the website. Also, if you “like” the Blue Water Sportsman Assoc. on Facebook you will get the latest club news sent to you automatically.

When things get busy, sign up your squad and put your clipboard in the rack next to the scoreboard. No jumping ahead. 5 to a squad only. 3 to a squad on exceptionally cold days. Have your squad ready to shoot when your clipboard is at the top of the rack. When you’re shooting for score, make sure you mark your score sheet with a red “S” before you shoot. Scores without a red “S” are just practice rounds. Anyone on your squad can score your round but if there’s trappers available let them score for you. It makes things easier for the shooters and it gives them a chance to earn a few bucks from tips for scoring. When you’re done shooting, just put your score sheet on the table next to the rack under the scoreboard. Don’t post your scores. I’ll take care of the scores. If you see any errors in your scores, let me know as soon as possible. It’s easy to correct them. I’ll correct scores for the current 100 birds and the previous 100 only.

So call your friends and tell them it’s not too late to sign up. You can contact me at the numbers listed below. I’m usually at the club on shooting days and I’m happy to answer any of your questions.

BWSA Winter Bullseye League
8 January 2020 through 25 March 2020
35.00 League Fee is due by the 1st Shoot in January

NRA Rules will be used and enforced. Any NRA approved Pistol may be used in match play, but you may not change pistols during a match. Please note that each National Match Course is a Match so you may change pistols after each National Match Course but are not required to, you may not change pistols during a 900 Aggregate (except as provided by the NRA Pistol Rules).

All handicapped scores will be based on 90% of 900. If you shoot a 700, it will be subtracted from 810. This number, 110 will be multiplied by .9. That number, 99 will be added to your actual score of 700 for a total of 799. If your average is 810 or above, your actual score will be your handicapped score. Handicaps will be calculated after the first three matches and then scores will be change to reflect. Handicaps will be recalculated to the average of the last three matches and those scores will be changed accordingly. Setting your handicap with open sights and switching to a dot sight will not be permitted. A running spread sheet will be posted weekly for your convenience.

If you are going on vacation or cannot attend you can shoot up to two 90 shot matches in one evening but you can only shoot ahead up to two matches. We will be shooting either a National Match Courses or 900 Aggregates at 25 yards.

After those events the participants will police the range for the next relay and another Range Safety Briefing will be held for the participants.

An Awards Banquette will be held the last Wednesday in April for all participants. Participants will provide a dish to pass during banquet, protein (i.e.: Steak) will be covered by the League fees as well as prizes!! Also your non-handicapped scores will be turned in to the NRA for Classification Purposes.

You can start signing up for the 2020 Winter Skeet League. The front desk has a signup sheet. Details on the league will be posted around the clubhouse, on the website and on the Facebook page. If you have any questions, I’m usually at the club on shooting days.

This year the league fee will be $45 and $20 for junior shooters under 18, same as last year. Rounds will cost $5 for members and $7 for non-members when you add rounds to your card. Shooting days this year will be Thursdays and Sundays.

Single shooters are welcome. We’ll find a team for you to join. If your team is short a shooter, don’t worry, we can fill you in with someone looking for a team. And we’re always looking female shooters. So, if you have a wife, girlfriend daughter or granddaughter, bring them out.
