Mark Sandness, MR CTL Coach and owner of Capital City Sporting Clays, will serve as the lead coach and organizer of the skeet program.  A Level 3 NSCA instructor, Sandness brings decades of competitive experience and instructive know-how to the new skeet program.

“I am thrilled to help introduce MR CTL’s great shooters to the exciting pursuit of skeet shooting, providing additional experience and greater depth to their shooting sports experience this spring,” Sandness stated.

Signup and registration will run from 8am Mon. Feb. 17 to 5pm Mar. 1 on a first-come-first-served basis and participation is capped at 50 shooters for this spring’s season.  An informational and preview meeting will be held at Capital City Sporting Clays on Thu. Mar. 5 at 6:30pm – ALL SKEET SHOOTERS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND.  Shooters are reminded that if they are shooting trap as part of MR CTL’s spring season, they must shoot their skeet rounds AROUND THEIR TRAP SCHEDULE.

Slightly more advanced than trap shooting, skeet involves participants progressing around a semi-circle with eight stations, shooting 25 clay targets thrown singly and in pairs from a high house and a low house.  The North Dakota State High School Clay Target League (ndclaytarget.com) added skeet to its seasonal competitions in 2019.  For more information on the differences between trap and skeet, view the infographic below.  For more information on MR CTL’s skeet shooting program, sign-up and related questions, email mrctl25@gmail.com, or call Nick Simonson at (507)829-9553 or Mark Sandness at 701-220-1003.
