It's starting to warm up and the daylight is lasting longer, so I wanted to remind everyone that skeet night is every Thursday night 6pm-9pm on the skeet field (weather permitting). You'll need your own shells (#7.5 shot or smaller), or 12ga shells can be purchased from the club for $7.50 per box. If you don't have your own shotgun, there's usually someone willing to share a gun with a first-timer, and the club also has 12ga shotguns and 20ga youth shotguns available. A limited supply of free 20ga shells is also available for youth shooters. The cost is $3.50 per round of skeet (25 targets). Also, if you're a member who would like to be able to shoot skeet at your convenience, come on a Thursday night, and I will give you a short orientation on the operation of the skeet field. For more information, contact Kenny Riddile at firstname.lastname@example.org

PMSC has five available trap fields. Trap practice is on Saturdays from 10 am until 1 or 2 pm and is open to the public. Practice is held year round weather permitting (25 degrees and rising and no pouring rain). The cost is $3.50/round of 25 targets. These practices are low key and all shooters from beginners to the experienced are welcome. All you need is a shotgun (modified or full choke recommended), shells with 7 1/2 or 8 shot, and eye/ear protection. If you don’t have a shotgun, bring some factory shells (12 gauge, 7 1/2 or 8 shot) and someone will loan you a gun or you can use a club gun (small cleaning fee). We also plan to have some items on the schedule such as days to pattern shotguns, perhaps beginner days, and other variations on the standard trap practice. These may include handicap, doubles or various games if there is any interest. So come out to trap practice Saturdays at 10 am and let us know your ideas. Attendance is picking up with the improved weather and we will soon open multiple traps. To hear about any upcoming trap news/events at PMSC, email Jack at email@example.com and ask to be added to the trap email list.
Members of Pitcairn-Monroeville can obtain keys to open traps on their own. This requires attendance at an orientation to explain the trap machines, safe operation, and payment procedures. Orientations will be held on the first Saturday of the month at 9:15 am. Please email in advance if you plan to attend. Traps 4 and 5 are available for members all year. Trap 3 is also available to members except during the trap league season (April through September). Traps 1 and 2 are reserved for scheduled events and not available for general member use. If you have trouble with one of the traps please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rick Singer at email@example.com.
PMSC participates in the Westmoreland Trap League starts April 12 at Shaner. If you are interested all you have to do is show up Tuesdays. It is a 50 bird 16 yard league shooting from 5pm until done and runs until the end of August. It is shot at Pitcairn-Monroeville, Shaner, Herminie and Trafford. For information about joining the league, come to a Saturday practice or email Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club has purchased a personal voice-release system for members to use on the skeet field. This system allows you to shoot skeet by yourself without needing someone else there to push buttons and throw targets for you. Members wishing to use this system must contact Kenny Riddile at email@example.com to arrange an orientation.
Matches are held on the last Sunday of the month rain or shine year round but always check here for the latest updates and range conditions before heading out.
Sign in begins at 10:00am and shooting starts at 11:00am. Match fees are $10 for PMSC members and $15 for non members. Setup takes place the Saturday before the match around 2:00pm and continues at 8:00am on Sunday before the match. Anyone who helps with set up or tear down can shoot the match for free and will get work-party hours if they’re a probationary member of PMSC. If you have any further questions, contact Neil Glausier at: firstname.lastname@example.org
