    I won...

    Please note I am simply bragging from the standpoint I have never one any $ or prizes from shooting.

    We had our company picknick on Friday. You could shoot in a company tournament (skeet and Trap) (15 targets Skeet/ 15 targets Trap) or chase a little white ball around a piece of land that is a deliberate missuse of a perfectly good rifle range. I chose the Shooting.

    15 targets not a typical round of skeet or trap but you shot singles from every station. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 then shot 8 LH.
    I dropped the LH on 2 in skeet.
    trap you shot 3 from each station. Hit all the trap birds.

    For my efforts I got a whopping $100.

    Nice! I dont know why I get exited too when I win something... I have spent thousands of dollars getting "good" enough to win a few things. When I do win its something goofy like a key chain or a box of ammo, but I've never done as well as $100.

    Good result I often imagine winning a 50/50 which is up to a grand or so - never do of course! Did have some luck a few years ago tho - won a Savage 99c and L1A1 all in same year! That's my luck used up tho!

    chase a little white ball around a piece of land that is a deliberate missuse of a perfectly good rifle range
    Haha - or as I also sometimes think - waste of a great site for flying model planes!!!

    Congratulations! My trap shooting has gone in the tank lately. I am in a real batters slump so to speak so I am glad someone is hitting those clay birds with consistency.

    Way to go! Now if they want to make things even more interesting next year, try combining the two! You have to take one club out of your bag to make room for the shotgun. Basic USGA match play rules apply except you have the opportunity to shoot your opponents ball out of the air. Once a ball ( or part of a ball) makes it onto the green it can be picked up and replaced with a new ball. If you smoke the ball you automatically win the hole.
    I think it would be a game we could all love!
