Snake River Trapshooting Association (SRTA)
The League runs 10 weeks.
The cost of the league for each shooter is a one time yearly fee of $10.00. All the money for the league goes to pay for the rookie bags and the Lewis Class payout at the end of the league. The Lewis Class will be paid Hi gun 1 in 10, 2 places / clas 60-40.
A shooter must shoot at least 8 of the 10 weeks to quality for the Lewis Class money and 4 weeks to qualify for trophies at the annual shoot in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Since all clubs aren’t open 2 days a week, the shooter can shoot 1 make-up score and 1 week ahead, but no more than 3 scores in one week. Shooters must declare they are shooting the Snake River Trapshooting Association (SRTA) score before shooting or that score won’t count.
SRTA will give rookie bags to every rookie that shoots 8 of 10 weeks and the Best of the Best in Twin Falls. SRTA pays for the targets in the Best of the Best. A rookie is a shooter with less than 500 registered targets and has never shot a SRTA league or annual shoot.
Each week the club results will be sent to the President of the SRTA. The weekly relsults must have a weekly score consists of the 3 top scores (including ties) and a rookie score.
