The inaugural Pan American Sporting Clays Championship is almost here, April 27-29, and this new international event is expected to become a fast favorite of shooters who enjoy springtime shoots such as the World English at the National Shooting Complex.
The FITASC portion of the event has been expanded to accommodate more shooters and allow more flexibility in scheduling additional events. The National Shooting Complex is now offering FITASC on Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. for 24 shooters, in addition to the Friday through Sunday flights. To add FITASC to your registration or change your current time, please contact Lois Lessing at email@example.com
The National Shooting Complex will also offer a 10-station practice course starting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 25, using the Long Range Target Key system. Cost will be 40 cents per target.
The Pan American Sporting Clays Championship is open to any shooter from North, Central, or South America. Future events will alternate years between the NSC and Central/South American locations. The National Shooting Complex will be the venue in even years.
Both individual and national medals will be awarded at the shoot, but national honors will be determined in a new way. Instead of countries sending “official” teams to the tournament, the three top-performing shooters from each country will constitute the team in Open and concurrent categories.
There will be no entry fee for national teams, and the teams will be designated for awards only. Concurrents will include Lady, Junior, Veteran, and Super Veteran. When all the scores are in, for Open and each category of concurrent, the top three shooters will be considered the national team. Then, the best composite team scores will be awarded national team honors.
