Filson Open at Seattle Skeet and Trap

June 2011
Seattle Skeet and Trap Club hosted the Second Annual Filson Open registered sporting clays shoot on April 30 and May 1. With over 100 shooters, “The Filson” is on its way to becoming the place to be for sporting clays in early May. Saturday, the first day of the shoot, Mother Nature continued the theme of “coldest April on record” with an overcast and chilly day. Although rain threatened from time-to-time nothing serious developed. The course was set by Randy Kear and Tim Arpin, both from SST, and consisted of the 13 regular stations of the course plus 2 added stations for a total of 15. They did a great job of presenting targets that looked easy to hit, until you tried. Some shooters are surely still scratching their heads wondering how to break some of them. In spite of the weather and challenging target presentations Len Edwards and Tracy Wright turned in the high score of 89 for the day followed by several others in the 80’s. Sunday reminded us just how beautiful the Pacific Northwest can be in spring― warm, sunny, in a word, fantastic! On Sunday Dakin Zurfluh found a new set of target presentations more to his liking and lead the pack with a 91 followed by Len Edwards close on his heals with a 90. Again, there were many shooters who racked up scores in the 80’s. When the dust settled and all the scores were tallied, Len Edwards took home HOA honors. Dakin Zurfluh took first in Master Class. Brian Jacobsen won AA Class, Dean Cornelison was in the top spot in A Class, and Phil Martin took first in B Class. Myles Lubinski claimed C Class, Kevin Meader won D Class, Meagan Rice was in first place in E Class and the Hunter Class top spot was claimed by John Tierney. Registered 2-stand events were held on both Saturday and Sunday with 50 targets each day set by Eric Siu and Marty Njaa. Underscoring its commitment to nurturing younger shooters, the WSCA held a drawing for all registered Junior and Sub-Junior shooters for Main Event entry fees at this year’s Western Open at Top Gun. Sub-Junior Meagan Rice was the lucky young shooter drawn. Congratulations Meagan!
