Santa Ynez had a Scoliotic Clay Target Program (SCTP) Trap shoot on April 26th. Five of our junior shooters attended, Wyatt Hambly was high in his age group, Ben Clark was second in his group and Murray Hunter IV was third in his group. It was a great opportunity for our juniors to get some competitive experience.  The SCTP State Finals will be held at Kingsburg Gun Club on June 20th and 21st. They are expecting 700 to 900 junior shooters from all over the state for the weekend. We will be taking somewhere between 6 to 10 shooters.
The junior trap program session will be ending soon, if you have a junior that is interested in learning to shoot trap our next session will start in September. The program is partially sponsored by the NRA.
The junior rifle program will have their signups and introductory safety briefing for next year’s program on July 18th. The Junior Rifle Program consists of a format based on NRA marksmanship qualification program.  
 
Use the red safety lights at the rifle and pistol ranges for your safety.  We will be adding a system on the pistol range at the 50 yard target area.
Don’t forget to wear hearing and eye protection while at the range.
          
Have fun and shoot straight
