Each discipline is run by an club specifically focused on that particular discipline. They collect their own match fees and buy their own equipment, materials and any props they might use. No Weld County Fish and Wildlife membership dues are used by the disciplines.
All shotgun ranges are only open when a Range Officer is present and the event is listed on the Event Calendar.
5 stand is a cross between trap, skeet and sporting clays with the advantage that it is more action packed than trap, has more crossing/flying patterns than skeet and is faster and less expensive than sporting clays.
The clays will be thrown from between 6 to 8 throwers. Throwers can be placed ahead of the shooting stations, to the left, right, straight ahead and even behind the shooter at assorted yardages. The traps will be aligned to throw various crossing, sliding, dropping, and some of the most challenging (and my favorite) stand and fall patterns that replicate overhead teal.
5 stand shooters take turns at each of the 5 stands, shooting three combinations then rotating to the next stand. The combinations are listed as “menus” and placed on or in front of each stand. The combination may begin with a single thrown from station 6 on their first shoot to a double (3-7) on their second shot and another double (1-5) on the third. Each stand will have a different combination listed on the menu at their location.
