This event is intended to be a fun shoot to participate in and enjoy. Five person relay teams selected by a draw of registered names.  Each name will be drawn in turn to select the members of each team (e.g., first name drawn for team #1, second name drawn for team #2, etc.) until all team relays are filled.  The number of teams will depend on the number of registrants.  If a team is a person short, a volunteer from another team may shoot as a substitute on that team. However, this will require more ammunition for the volunteer team participant! To be awarded overall “Top Gun” (male and female) or “Top Gun Team”, a registered shooter/team must compete in and complete all events (singles, handicap, and doubles).

Please remember that this is a fun event, so regardless of trap shooting skills, we are looking for and encouraging full participation. While there are no official awards, the winning team (Top Gun Team) will have their names inscribed on the perpetual Memorial Shoot Trophy and the Top Gun (male and female) will have his/her name inscribed on a plaque for overall high gun.  Certificates will be presented to the Top Gun (male and female) and Top Gun Teamwinners. Photographs collected will be posted to the club web site.  

NOTE:  In allowing your photograph to be taken, you hereby give permission to have it posted at the Upper Humber Road and Gun Association web site.  If you do not wish to have your photograph posted, please advise the Trap Chair (George Alteen, Sr.) 

ACCESS TO UPPER HUMBER ROD AND GUN ASSOCIATION CLUB BATHROOMS during the competition shoots we will have access to the male and female bathrooms in the Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association clubhouse. Sanitizers and rubber gloves will be available for use in the bathrooms.  There should be ample supplies provided by the Association.  Clubhouse access is for bathroom use only; all other areas of the clubhouse are unavailable for use. 

The following are the guidelines for bathroom use under Covid-19.·         One person only per bathroom at a time.·         Only one sink and one toilet are available for use. In the male bathroom, the urinals will not be used. If one toilet malfunctions, that area will be closed off and another stall will be used. 

Please advise if a malfunction occurs.· Please sanitize the area to be used before and after use, and any doorknobs, etc. that may be touched. It might be a good idea to bring extra toilet paper, paper towels, rubber gloves and sanitizer for use while at the range, and in case we do run out.
