NSSA is proud to host the 6th annual Trap Shoot For Heroes on Saturday May 20th. WHHC is a non-profit, 100% volunteer organization that provides hunting trips as a healing experience for wounded veterans.
Not only does the Trap Shoot for Heroes event help to raise money each year to make these hunting trips possible, it provides the wounded veterans with an opportunity to get out on the trap range and have a little fun themselves.
Members NOTE: The Indoor Archery Range will be closed during this event. The archery room will be used for event activities.
Every Fall and Spring NSSA hosts a 12-week trap league that takes place on Thursday Nights. Shooters are divided into 5 teams which compete against each other for shells, prizes, and most importantly, bragging rights at the end of the 12-weeks.
Our Spring League starts Thursday, March 2nd, with a 100 bird pre-season shoot. This shoot is a great opportunity for shooters to dust off their guns and get back out on the range. Following the 100 bird shoot, shooters will be divided into the 5 even teams based on their score and known ability, and these are the teams they will shoot 50 birds each week for throughout the rest of the season.
Sign-up times are 4pm-8pm each Thursday and it costs $10 per week to shoot the league. This cost not only covers the targets each week but also the prizes and the end of the league banquet dinner that we have at the club.
Everyone is welcome, including non members, so we hope to see you out there! Please be advised that during this 12-week league shooters are not required to participate in the league and can opt to shoot practice instead, however league squads will have preference over trap availability.
In observance of the holidays, trap and skeet will be closed.
Trap will be CLOSED on Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd. Only shooters who participate in the North Suburban Trap League will be permitted to shoot on Sunday as the NSTL is holding their Post Season Shoot and will be utilizing all four traps. Shooters wishing to shoot practice are welcome to join us again on Thursday, October 6th and Sunday, October 9th.
It was quite an experience trying to hit a target on the ground while aiming at the treetops. There are modified sights for this style of archery but we all used our equipment as is setup for standard target shooting. Spotters helped during sight in to help the shooter ascertain the trajectory of their arrows.
Participation fee is $5 – prizes will be awarded to the top score.
This is a lighthearted and fun event for all ages. No Pressure! We encourage you to join us.
