July in Washington State...time for the P.I.T.A. State Trapshooting Tournament! Trapshooting enthusiasts came from all over the state, and beyond our borders, to attend this fun and challenging competition, which took place at the Evergreen Sportsman’s Club from July 9, 2014 through July 13, 2014.
Our club was well represented, with many great shooters participating.
We even have, right here in our very midst, the one and only 2014 ROCKIE OF THE YEAR, Scott Moore. CONGRATULATIONS, Scott! After working hard all year honing his skills, Scott showed his prowess by trouncing all over the competition, and walking away with all the glory (oh, and a HUGE, gorgeous, shiny, brand new belt buckle, too!). Next time you see Scott be sure to congratulate him...and then challenge him to a round...competing runs through his veins!!
Our club team also showed their strength, beating out all other club teams throughout the state to take home the trophy for the 200 target Washington State Club Championship, with a total score of 773 out of 800, for a combined average of 97%, proving they are not to be messed with! The team consisted of:
AA Class - John Mullins 197/200
A Class - Le Rodenberg 194/200
C Class (shooting up to class B) - Scott Moore 195/200
C Class- Teresa Rebo 187/200
Our members also brought home the High All-Around Champion trophy, with John Mullins bringing home the bacon for overall Champion, and Art Fenton winning Senior Vet Champion! Way to go, John and Art!
As if that wasn’t enough, Art also won Champion Runner-Up for the 200 target Singles Championship, shooting 199/200, and Scott Moore won for Class C with a score of 195/200. John Mullins stepped up to the plate, smoking 99/100, winning Champion Runner-up in the Championship Doubles. Are you seeing a pattern with these sharpshooting gentlemen? WINNERS they are, indeed!
Speaking of the Championship events, Madison Cheyney shot her way to the top with a 94/100, winning Lady Champion in the Handicap Championship, and Don Davies smoked the clays, taking home the trophy for Elder Champion with a 93/100.
Also, 3 preliminary Handicap events were won by club members; Grant Lau with a 97/100 won Champion in the 2nd event, Scott Moore won Champion Runner-Up with a 96/100 in the 6th event, and Teresa Rebo won Lady with a 93/100, also in the 6th event.
Speaking of Teresa Rebo, she had the honor of winning the Carmon Fenton High Over All Lady Trophy, for combined total of events 1 through 10, courtesy of our very own Art Fenton. Way to go, Teresa and thank you, Art, for your generous and kind sponsorship of this event.
Amidst the fun and frivolity, some business was squeezed in. Our very own President, Le Rodenberg, was elected to another term as Washington State P.I.T.A. President. Busy man! Thanks for all your hard work, Le!
Art Fenton was also elected to another term as Washington State P.I.T.A. Treasurer. Thank you, as well, Art, for your continued dedication to keeping Washington State P.I.T.A. alive and well!
John Mullins was elected to his first term on the Washington State P.I.T.A. Board of Directors. Way to go, John!
As we say goodbye to another fun State shoot, we now begin looking forward to next year. Be sure to put next year’s P.I.T.A. Washington State Shoot on your radar screen and plan on joining the fun.
See you there!
