September Shoot at Redmond Rod and Gun Club Canceled

Unfortunately, the Redmond Rod and Gun Club is no longer able to host the September shoot due to lack of volunteer staff.

2024 Oregon State Championship News Update

Many thanks to the Creswell Board of Directors for stepping up to host the Oregon State Championship this year when Rogue Valley Sporting Clays determined they will not be able to host as planned. The championship will be three days - July 12, 13 and 14 instead of the usual four. They will hold the 200 target Main Event on Saturday and Sunday, a Preliminary, 5-Stand and other fun events. More details regarding the program will be released later.

Registration is now open here on Scorechaser. If you are planning to attend the shoot, please register as soon as possible to help the staff plan accordingly. Thank you!

Latest NSCA Rule Changes adopted by the EC and Delegates

Summary of Classification Changes:

Starting January 1, 2025: NSCA will remove E Class. All members in E class for both 12 gauge and sub-gauge will be moved up to D class and start with zero (0) punches.

A new member who has never shot any registered clay targets will be assigned Class “C.” (Old rule was assigned Class “D.”)

Starting January 1, 2025: New punch requirements to punch up in 12-gauge class.

D – C   – 4 punches (old was 6 punches)

C – B    – 6 punches (old was 8 punches)

B – A    – 10 punches (old was 12 punches

A – AA    – 14 punches (no change)

AA – Master    – 20 punches (no change)

On January 1, 2025: All members’ sub-gauge classification will be automatically re-classified to one class lower than their 12-gauge classification UNLESS their current sub-gauge classification is equal to or greater than their 12-gauge classification.

A shooter’s sub-gauge classification may never be more than one (1) class lower than their 12-gauge classification. As a shooter moves up in their 12-gauge classification, their sub-gauge classification will automatically move up also, starting the new class with zero (0) punches UNLESS their sub-gauge classification is:

        o already one class lower than their new 12-gauge classification

        o equal to their new 12-gauge classification, or

        o higher than their new 12-gauge classification

Effective immediately, a shooter may request a 1,000-target review of their sub-gauge classification ONLY if their sub-gauge classification is equal to or higher than their 12-gauge classification.

Rotation Rule Change

In European rotation shoots, effective immediately, rules require there to be a minimum of three shooters per squad. This was previously two. The rule now states:

    European Rotation – Individual competitors or groups of three (3) through six (6) competitors will proceed to the various stations at random. Groups may shoot in any order of rotation selected by the shooters and may change the rotation from station to station. In European Rotation, a shoot start and shoot end time will be established. It will be the responsibility of each shooter to complete the entire event between these times.

Rotation of Squad Positions Change

At a squadded event, the change requires squads to stay in rotation order and rotate at every station. Previously, shooters have not been required to rotate. This change is also effective immediately. This text will be added to the rule:

    Once a rotation of shooters is selected and shooting commences, the original first shooter will rotate to the last shooter position; the rest of the shooters on the squad will move up one position, thus rotating the first shooter position at each subsequent station throughout the course.

Tri-County July Monthly Shoot Rescheduled to July 6

A schedule conflict arose for the Tri-County July Monthly Shoot originally scheduled for July 27. The shoot has been rescheduled to occur on July 6.

Oregon NSCA Funding Notice

In 2020, Oregon’s Gun Club Owners, Managers and NSCA Delegates decided it was time to create a sustainable means to fund our expenses such as; website domain fee, web master updates/maintenance, engraving of our State Champions plaque and now we’ve added the Hall of Fame inductee honor awards. In total our annual expenses range from $760- $960 depending on the number of HOF inductees that year. Therefore, it was decided to assess a OREGON NSCA fee of 2-cents per registered target at ONE shoot each club hosts annually. The State shoot is excluded. Also, individuals can make donations at the annual state shoot if they choose. This assessment will create a stronger, more sustainable Oregon NSCA organization.
