2018 Rising StarZ Sporting Clays Challenge


An overcast, cool day greeted the Venturers and Scouts who competed in the first-ever Rising StarZ Sporting Clays Challenge at the Jack Graves Sporting Clays Complex at ZBASE.  Sixty-five Youth, Adult Sponsors, and Staff were on hand.

Shotshells and clay targets for the event were provided though a generous grant by the NRA Foundation and the “Friends of NRA”.


The High Over-All trophy went to Austin C., Venture Crew 1935.  Reagan F., Crew 1935 captured the Lady’s Top-Gun.

In the Venturing Division, the HOA was Jack P., Crew 20.  The Venturing Division 1 (ages 17-20) Top-Gun was presented to R.J. W., Crew 1935, and the Division 2 (ages 14-16) Top Gun went to Hudson M., Crew 1935.

The HOA for the Boy Scout Division was Corban N., Troop 123.  Top-Gun honors for the Boy Scout Division 1 (ages 13-15) was awarded to Ethan V., Troop 2002, and Division 2 (ages 16-18) to Kaleb T., Troop 173.

Our “thanks” also to the Oklahoma Skeet Shooters Association, and OSSA President Pete Garcia, for sponsoring the beautiful trophy plaques for the HOA and Top-Gun awards.

The Council Shooting Sports Committee wishes to recognize the 16 NRA Instructors and Range Safety Officers who provided supervision for registration and shooting activities.   And a hearty “thank you” to the unit adult sponsors who stepped into the roles of trappers and score keepers.
