About the SSC

To attend a shoot, watch for notification of an event then sign up on this web site for the event. Then show up and have fun! You have now joined!

We are a group of clay shooters who enjoy friendly competition, fun and fellowship. We created a scoring system to keep track of our shooting so we can see the improvement.

Clay clubs extend invitations to shooters who are registered on this web site for events at their clubs. The shooters post their scores here to find out how well they did in comparison to their peers.

Although the terms "members" and "club" are used, the SSC is not an incorporation or any sort of legal entity nor does it have any formal membership. The term member is used to describe anyone who wants to shoot with us.

No. We are a new organization. We did borrow from them many of the concepts they used for their scoring system, but that is where any association ends.

The SSC provides relaxed competition without involving direct monetary prizes. After participating in two SSC shoots, members are placed in divisions by calculating Par for each shoot and the individual’s Personal Handicap as follows:

Par (for the shoot) = (Ave of top 10% of the scores)

Personal Handicap = Moving Ave (Par - score)

An individual’s Personal Handicap is calculated using a moving average which approximates the average of their last ten shoots. The minimum requirement is 2 shoots for initial division placement. The individual's Personal Handicap value determines the division placement as follows:

SSC Division

Scoring is done on the honor system. When shooters come off the course, they will post their scores on the provided scoreboard. All scores must be posted within 15 minutes of the last person coming off the course

NO requests honored for corrections due to scores not posted or incorrectly posted.

The scores can be viewed via the web site after the event.
A very wise teacher suggested that we present the greatest prize possible. A good feeling!
