The L C Smith team won The Manufacture's Cup Award at Rock Mountain Sporting Clays on August 4th. This shoot was held on the 5 Stand at Rock Mountain. The maximum possible score, a perfect score, would have been a 125 out of 125. The L C Smith team shot an 83 out of 125 to win. This was a very tough 5 Stand. I shot a 10 or 11 out of 25 clay targets in this event. Our team average was 16 out of 25 clay targets for our team in this event. Divide 83 by 5 and you get 16 point something. The Ithaca team had three kids and I mean kids shooting on their team and I think two of the kids shot this 5 Stand better then I did. About 65 to 70 shooters attended this 4 day SXS shoot at Rock Mountain. This SXS shoot is scheduled for August 1/2/3/4 of 2019 at Rock Mountain. Mark your calendars now. The course at Rock Mtn is probably the best and most fun sporting clays course that I have ever shot at. They have a station at Rock Mtn with birds coming off of a very high cliff that are so much fun to shoot at I could just stay at that station and shoot. No two birds fly the same off of that cliff. Rock Mtn also has a trampoline station now and that station is difficult but great great fun. In my opinion this SXS shoot at Rock Mountain is the best of all SXS shoots because of the club and what the club, Rock Mtn, has to offer. No other gun club that I know of has the natural terrain that Rock Mtn has to set traps on. Some clay targets are flying in a ravine below, well below, the shooter, you have to shoot down on the target. The club house and the pavilion at Rock Mtn, two different buildings, are the best buildings at any gun club that I have ever seen. The facilities for the vendors to set up in are the best of any anywhere that I have seen. posted by Jent on August 5th of 2018|
