2021 SCTP National Championship Update
Here are the latest updates to the Record-Breaking 2021 SCTP National Championships being held at the Cardinal Center in Marengo Ohio, July 8-17!
As always, if you need help, please reach out to any of the SCTP National Staff for assistance!
We have added additional squads to the Wednesday/Thursday rotation for Singles Trap. Squads 499-522 on banks 1-3 were added for those afternoons for teams that found the rest of the schedule already full and as expected, they entirely filled up by the end of the day! We will be adding 2 more banks of fields, bank 9 and bank 12 for all flights throughout the days on the Wednesday/Thursday rotation. With the Singles Trap numbers soaring to over 2,300 participating athletes and total registrations well over 7,200 for this tournament, we could very well see a world record being set this year at the Cardinal Center!
An additional Bunker Trap rotation for 30 athletes was added to the International disciplines. Squad slots 57-66 were added to Bunker but will be shot on the I-Skeet days of Thursday/Friday, July 8-9. This was the only way we could add the athletes still wanting to compete in the Bunker discipline. Next years Intl competition will see a couple days added as well as an additional Bunker field! Anybody wanting to and able to help referee for the Intl. disciplines this year, please contact Terri Dewitt as soon as possible! We could use your help! firstname.lastname@example.org
Super Sporting has been added to the National Championships this year on the front end of the tournament and is available for squading! This can be shot on either Thursday, Friday or Saturday July 8, 9 or 10! It is a 100 target competition with awards in all divisions! We are gaging the interest in this for next years competition.
There will be a Trap HOA that will include Trap Singles, Handicap Trap and Doubles Trap. Any team wanting to compete in that HOA must shoot all 3 of these events to qualify!
Make A Break will be offered again this year! There will be daily ammunition prizes as well as awards for top lady and top guy. Overall winner will walk away with a brand new Winchester SX3!
Squad slots will start to be combined for most disciplines this week. If you have a squad that is short, you may want to add an athlete that is on the fence about attending or those single slots will be populated with single athletes from another team. This is done to free up slots for teams that have full squads needing to register.
The Wild Rose Grill crew will be offering a healthier choice in food this year. They will be located behind the Grandstands in a big tent and will offer a Southwest Chicken Sandwich, Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, fresh smoked pulled pork sandwich and more! They also do team catering at your campsites! If you are interested in having the Wild Rose cater your teams supper any night, please contact Todd Veeser at 1-715-616-1197. They can offer some sides like cornbread, green beans, potato salad and more as well as stir fry, burgers and other menu options but will have a limited time they can do this, so don’t wait too long!
Get some of that great Hunters Blend Coffee in that same tent behind the Grandstands!
Ammunition! Probably the biggest question we get right now is the availability of ammunition. Our sponsors have confirmed that they will make sure there is plenty of ammunition for teams and athletes at this years Nationals! Teams may be required to show proof of events being shot for purchase, but ammo will be available! Also, anybody wanting to shoot side events like the flurry, ammo will also be available for sale to be shot at that side game!
Squading and registration for the Kids & Clays / SCTP Charity shoot is open! That will take place on Friday/Saturday, July 16/17 on the Sporting Clays course. This is open to everyone, athletes and adults alike!
State Advisors, please reach out to your Director of Development as your state shoots are finalized. As in the past, All State Teams will be determined by finishes at the state level shoots, and those athletes who are then attending the National Championships!
Please stay tuned for more weekly updates regarding the SCTP National Championships this July!
