SUMMER TRAP LEAGUE
Last year we introduced a 16 week league instead of the normal 20 week league. There were two double-header weeks, so the total rounds shot ended up 18 compared to 20 for the normal 20 week schedule. The reason for us trying the new league was an attempt to help out shooters with young families and the start of school in September. I heard some complaints, but the majority of the comments were on the positive side. Since my first day of managing the Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range, I’ve tried to make all leagues as shooter friendly as I can in hopes the shooters will have a more enjoyable summer without the pressure of a league.
With that in mind, we will continue with the 16 week, 18 round league for another year.
The Summer Trap League will start on Monday, May 7th and run to the week of
Monday, August 21st. Shooters will again be able to shot two weeks behind or ahead of schedule. With early spring weather, this could/will be extended if needed. The league will continue to be split into a 1st & 2nd half competition with the winners of each half, having a shoot-off for the divisional championship. Each half will be 8 weeks and each half will have
1 double-header week.
The first half of the league will run from Monday, May 7th to the week of Monday, June 18th. The doubleheader for the first half is scheduled for the week of Monday, June 25th. The second half of the league will run from Monday, July 2nd to the week of Monday, August 20th. The doubleheader for the second half is scheduled for the week of Monday, August 13th.
All scores will need to be posted for the league by Friday, August 24th.
The Awards/Fun Shoot will be held on Monday, August 27th.
If you do not have a team, we will be glad to place you on one.
Call the clubhouse or email Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
The 2018 Team Sponsorship fee will remain at $120.0
THE DEL-TONE/LUTH GUN RANGE WILL BE CLOSED ON EASTER SUNDAY.
EVERYONE HERE WISHES YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A HAPPY EASTER HOLIDAY.
Shooters can enter as many times as he/she would like.

Since this is a new league, teams will be determined by the “Luck of the Draw” method to limit anyone setting up a power house team.
