SIXTH ANNUAL STEVE YOUNG MEMORIAL TRAPSHOOT.  PITA REGISTERED.  BOISE GUN CLUB.  SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2010

The bad weather that has plagued Southern Idaho trapshoots all year continued to strike the Boise Gun Club.  After a week of beautiful weather in the valley, Sunday dawned with a deep overcast and a prediction for rain starting in the late afternoon.  Instead, the rain began before shooting started and continued all day until the handicap was almost over.  Total rainfall for the day set an all-time record for that date in Boise.

Despite the weather conditions, 44 shooters shot 10,500 registered targets and turned in some nice scores.  Jeff DuPuis and Kody Klundt topped the 16’s with 99’s, All-Americans Shawn Cahoon and Stuart Welton paced the doubles with 97’s and Randy Brixey took the handicap champion’s buckle by three targets with a lone 98.  Cahoon edged Welton by one bird for the H-O-A with 285 and then again topped Welton by one in the Super High-Over-All buckle shoot-off where the champion and class winners shoot for a buckle and birds are added in singles and doubles for the B, C, and D class winners.  Cahoon broke 59 X 60 to win with the highest scratch ever recorded in this event.

Don Young donated $150 for two draw scores in the handicap.  Scores of 84 and 56 were drawn and Kent Harris took the $100 bill and Ric Thomas won the $50.

Five new members were signed up and 24 of the shooters took part in the PITA Multiplex also.  Father and son Randy and Codey Brixey each earned their first 25 and 50 Idaho PITA straight pins, Sherm Mullins earned his 50 pin, and Jim Cahoon, Terry Reininger, and Lorenzo Delcurto got their 25 straight pins.  In the Super H-O-A shoot-off for the first time ever, all five shooters ran the 20 singles.
