“Hugh’s Escopetas Club” is a monthly trap shooting gathering of ordinary folks. We gather and shoot the first Saturday of each month, (at least most of the time, if it’s a holiday or something else kinda important, we will probably be delayed a week) We shoot at “ Redlands Shooting Park in Redlands, California”
We begin taking sign ups at 9 am, and start shooting right after that (at least we try, if the folks are ready to begin). We start by shooting 4 rounds of singles (each round is 25 targets) which is equal to 100 total targets. That will determine our “Top Gun” for the month. Unless there is a tie, in which case we will have a ‘ shoot off ’ to determine the monthly winner.
We then proceed to our monthly “Lewis Class Champion”, which is a handicap event. Once that’s settled, we begin the first of our 2 fun shoots. Generally, an ‘Annie Oakley’ event followed
by a ‘chip shot’ event or maybe a ‘buddy shoot’ event, or maybe all 3, you just never know. It depends on a lot of things, weather, time of day, how we feel, you get the idea. Awards are handed out to the ‘Champs’ in each division.
Generally there is something cooking on the Bar B-Q, while the shooting is going on and a lot of ‘lies’ are being told by the shooters to the shooters while they are awaiting their turn to shoot. We are usually done about 1 pm, give or take a little while.
Our main objective is to have fun and shoot some flying saucers. We sure hope you can make it to our next shoot ( push the button that says “Next Shoot” ). Oh... and the cost is $38.00 and you gotta bring your own shells or purchase them from the club house. Usually, 5 boxes will do it, and we like to tip our target pullers a buck or too. ( There is nothing to join and there are no annual dues to pay ). If you got any questions, there is a button for “ Contact Us”.
