The Warren County Scholastic Trap League held a 100-bird shoot off Saturday at the Sugar Grove AmVets. The event was designed for the kids in the league that want to participate in the state title shoot this June in Elysburg.
The NRA has given the league a grant of $5,000 to use for state and national competitions. The grant covers travel, food, lodging and shooting fees at all shoots. The league decided to have a shoot off to make things fairer for all kids wanting to go to states. The event was held in Sugar Grove because the conditions are most like those found in Elysburg.
