Budd Family Shotgun Range

History

In the early 1900s, a number of British shooting schools adopted the use of clay targets
to practice for driven-game shoots. Clay target shooting quickly attracted a large
following. The first British Open, England’s premier sporting clays competition, was held
in 1925. In 1985, the Orvis Company sponsored the first U.S. National Sporting Clays
Championship, which was held in Houston, Texas and continues to promote the sport
via the annual Orvis Cup held at Sandanona Shooting Grounds. Today, sporting clays
is one of the fastest growing sports in America, with more than three million people of all
ages participating both competitively and recreationally.

Five Stand Course

Five Stand is a type of shotgun sport shooting similar to sporting clays, trap and
skeet.  There are five stations, or stands and eight 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 (i.e. which trap the clay bird will be coming from).
