Saturday Evening Trap League

Saturday Evening Trap League

The Saturday Evening Trap League will be starting its 2020 season on March 7th. The League is hosted by Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club and boasts a membership representing 15 AGC Clubs. Because this is an after-hours event, only AGC card holders, or immediate family members thereof (i.e. wife, son or daughter), and active Junior members of an AGC affiliated club are allowed to compete.

This is a unique opportunity to participate in a formal trap event. By virtue of the Lewis Class scoring system, which is used to determine final standings, the League is handicapped so that shooters are competing against individuals of equal ability. The evening hours generally prove to be nice temperature wise and the floodlights are used at dusk.

Specifics are:

  • The League generally competes the first Saturday of every month from March through October, inclusive. To avoid the July 4th and Labor Day weekends, competitions are held on the second Saturday in July and September. Check the Club or AGC Calendar for exact dates.

  • Check-in is at 5:15pm on Trap #3 and shooting begins at 6pm.

  • The course of fire each month consists of two rounds of trap and your total number of hits constitute your monthly score.

  • Your end-of-season score is the total of your four best monthly scores.

  • Monthly costs, to cover the birds, are $8 for AGC members, $12 for immediate family members, and $6 for Juniors (trap tickets will be accepted).

  • There is a onetime non-refundable $15 entry fee that goes into the prize fund.

  • End-of-year prizes are given out based on the Lewis Class scoring system; the rule of ‘one class for every six shooters’ will prevail.

  • 1st and 2nd place prizes are awarded in each class (have roughly a one in three chance of winning).

  • An individual is allowed to enter the League at any time, but must compete a minimum of four months to be eligible for end-of-year prizes.
