FIVE-STAND at White Mountain Trap & Skeet
If you really want to test your abilities with a shotgun you have got to give this game a try. Five-Stand shooting, which we began in 2010 has become one of the most popular shooting events offered at the club. We have now expanded the Five-Stand to include eight machines, which has added a whole new dimension to the shooting combinations. If you are interested in assisting and/or shooting please give Greg Schnepp a call at (928) 368-2466
Weather and Road
Many of our club members and visitors may not be aware that significant road improvements were completed in October 2013. The dry weather has helped to limit the winter's snow/rain damage. All of you know that it is a never-ending battle to keep the access to our club within reasonable standards. Dirt roads require constant maintenance. We will continue to do what we can to continue maintain the road. Higher clearance vehicles are still recommended and visitors should call if inclement weather is expected (928-368-2466 or 928-369-1155).
White Mountain Trap & Skeet YOUTH PROGRAM
The 2013-2014 year has been a great season for our youth program. The 43 young shooters have been participating monthly at our club. Many are participating at the Game and Fish Scholastic Clay shoots statewide. These youngsters have been representing our club and community well. The good weather so far this year has made it possible to maximize the club facility. This July, we are hoping to have a team return to the national competition at Sparta, IL.
Our thanks to the club members/coaches Gregg Schnepp, Frank Reed, Russ McCray, Sand Dee Short, Brain Moore, Jimmy Jayne, Mike Thrasher, Kendell Hughes, Bill Herron, Tom Henderson, Fred Fuller, Ron Kemble, Thane Halverson, Dennis Opheim, and Tom Johnson. Much credit goes to the parents who have shown up regularly to introduce the kids to shotgun shooting sports. We also want to thank the Arizona Game and Fish Department for their substantial financial support that is required to operate this program.
A special thanks to Ralph and Julie Forney who provided the lunches for all the athletes, their families and coaches at our youth practices, October 2013 to April 2014.
