Five Stand League is open to all the public (youth under the age of 18 shoot free). Experienced shooters will be on-hand to help new shooters.
Five Stand is a type of shotgun sport shooting similar to sporting clays. There are five stations (‘stands’) and multiple strategically placed clay target throwers (called traps). Shooters shoot in turn at various combinations of clay birds. Each station will have a menu card that lets the shooter know the sequence of clay birds he or she will be shooting at (e.g. which trap the clay bird will be coming from). The shooter is presented with five targets at each station, first a single bird followed by two pairs. Pairs can be either ‘report pairs,’ in which the second bird will be launched after the shooter fires at the first; or ‘true pairs’ when both birds launch at the same time. After shooting at the five birds on the menu at that station, the shooter proceeds to the next stand, where they find a new menu of five targets.
