r PROVO –- The Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program (Utah SCTP) and the Skyline X youth shotgun shooting team recently participated in Round Robin at Provo Gun Club. The Round Robin is an annual event that encourages families and shooters of all ages to participate and compete against one another for awards and trophies. A four-week event: the first 3 weeks of competition allow for open teams where participants can shoot with whomever they want on their team. For the final week (week 4) scores are accumulated and participants are placed into random teams according to their shooting ability as determined in those first three weeks. The final day, Saturday, April 7th, brought an end to the annual event with lunch and a fun awards ceremony.
Ten members of the Skyline X team braved the rain on the final day and completed the event, winning several of the trophies that were offered. Casey F. of Skyline X, age 13, tied with an adult for Mens 2nd Place. Casey lost in a shoot-off by only 1 target and went on to take High Sub-Junior. Other trophies went to youth participants as well: Gus S. of Skyline X for High Junior, Dagen B. of Skyline X for 2nd place Junior, Tanner V. of Skyline X for 3rd place Junior, Kyson M. of Skyline X for High A-Class, Wyatt W. of Skyline X for 2nd place Sub-Junior, and Logen B. of Skyline X for 3rd place Sub-Junior.
Provo Gun Club also handed out several door prizes as well, including several Browning knives donated by UTYESS.
With support from the MidwayUSA Foundation, Utah SCTP also provided a Winchester SXP 12-gauge shotgun that was given away in the event, and provided additional advertising opportunities for Provo Gun Club. Rhett C. of the Skyline X won the shotgun. “Had an awesome time at the Provo round robin the last couple of weeks. Today was the last day and Rhett’s name got called for the shotgun with only one ticket and let me tell you he was beaming,” Cody C., Rhett’s father.
“We encourage youth participation in our events and appreciate Utah SCTP and the Skyline X shooting team for their efforts in furthering youth shotgun shooting sports in our area,” Michael Scott, President, Provo Gun Club.
