Even if you haven’t used Flickr before, you’ll probably find it pretty intuitive once you poke around a bit. However, here are a few notes to speed up the learning curve:

    The album will open to a collection of images on one page. If you want to look at an image in full-frame or to share or download it, just click on the image to open it.

    With any image opened, look for these icons in the lower right corner:

    Flickr icons

    If you wish to download the image, click on the icon on the right, the “down” arrow. What you’re seeing on the page will usually be a much smaller version of the image, with several larger sizes available to be downloaded. You’ll see some options:

    Flickr image sizes

    Just choose what you want. For a social media icon – or postage stamp – you might choose the 150×150 option. For a large print, go with the largest available size. To submit to your newspaper, download the largest available size to allow them to re-size it as needed.

    If you want to share the image in social media, click on the center icon, the “right” arrow, and again you’ll have options and some choices to make:

    Flickr share

    For most purposes, such as sharing on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll need to select “Link” as the Code option. If you want to embed the photo into your blog or website, you can choose “HTML.” When that is the case, you will also have a choice of sizes.

If you choose to share images on social media (yes, do!), please continue to use the event hashtag, #SSSF2015.

Requirements for Personal Golf Cars and Clays Vehicles at Nationals

If you’re planning to bring your own golf car or utility vehicle to the National Team Championships at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex, you must meet some requirements and follow rules for safety and the consideration of other attendees at Nationals.

Every person using their personal clays vehicle must get a permit for the vehicle at the registration desk. At that time, you must provide your driver’s license — a learner’s permit is not sufficient — and proof of insurance.

Only persons 18 years of age or older can register a clays vehicle, and you must be a licensed driver 16 years of age or older to operate it.

Here are the complete rules for operating a personal clays vehicle at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex.

SCTP Nationals Registration Opens with a Bang!

June 1 was much anticipated by Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) teams across the country, as it marked the opening of registration for the 2015 SCTP National Team Championships. Based on the first day’s registrations, staff are predicting another record-breaking event.

In the first 24 hours of open registration for the July 13-18 tournament, the program saw 66 teams register 1036 athletes. Eighteen states were represented with 2,026 event registrations filed.

“These numbers are incredible; they doubled last year’s first-day totals,” commented Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director. “Coaches set their alarm clocks to wake up at 12:01 on June 1 to register their teams!”

While the numbers are already up significantly from last year’s registrations, Wondrash points out that there will be enough shooting slots at the spacious World Shooting and Recreational Complex to fit in every team wanting to attend.

The Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP) will also hold its National Junior/Senior Championships in conjunction with the SCTP tournament. In its third year, the SPP event has registered 259 athletes from 24 teams in 13 states to date.

New SCTP side events include 16-yard Preliminary Singles Trap and a coach/athlete trap shoot. Team endowment funding, games, and many industry representatives will also be on hand all week. With appearances by people like MidwayUSA’s own Larry and Brenda Potterfield on Tuesday, July 14, Olympic Gold Medalist Vincent Hancock on Wednesday through Friday, shooting exhibitions and clinics by professional shooters, and more exciting events still to be announced, SCTP and SPP are looking at a very busy and exciting week in Sparta, Illinois!

SCTP National Championship Registration Is Now Open

It’s time to register for the 2015 SCTP National Championships at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Illinois. Registration opened on June 1 at sssfonline.org for the July 13-18 event.

To ensure your registration goes smoothly, please follow these policies and tips:

  • Do NOT hold time slots until you are sure of the number of athletes you will be bringing. Squads must pay within 10 days, or your time slots may be released to other teams. We anticipate another record year and want to ensure that everyone has an equal and fair opportunity to squad their athletes. There are plenty of squad times, and we also added another flight to ensure enough room for all.
  • When squadding your athletes, consider squadding them in consecutive time slots rather than at the same time. This will keep your group of athletes and parents together instead of spread out across 6-10 fields at the same time. For example, placing one squad on field 11A at 8 a.m. and your next squad on 11A at 8:45 will keep everyone from your team together, as well as simplifying the job of coaches.
  • ALL head coaches must sign in at the registration counter in the Main Events Center. At that time, you will go through your teams’ line-up and sign off on them, stating that each athlete is properly squadded and in the appropriate division. Once you do that, they are set, and no changes can be made. Please take the time to ensure that everything is correct.
  • At the time of registration, you will receive a goodie bag for the head coach and each athlete. If you do not want one of these bags, please tell the registration personnel at that time. Each athlete and coach participating will also receive an event t-shirt. Coaches: Please make sure the shirt size is filled in on your athletes’ and coaches’ profiles.
  • Please make sure your athletes are in the correct division on the athletes’ profile page for the High School Division, as well as for the SCTP American Division. Having them categorized differently in the two areas may prevent you from squadding them properly.
