More than 70 residents from Robson communities across Arizona were hosted by Quail Creek on Feb. 11 for the 11th annual Robson Trap Trials, which incidentally began in 2011. Shooters enjoyed three rounds of trap singles at Casa Grande Trap & Skeet Club, followed by lunch and awards at Robson Ranch in nearby Eloy. Quail Creek resident Lori Klug masterfully orchestrated the friendly competition. Ten Robson Ranch residents competed.
This unique trap-shooting contest aggregates the top five individual scores from each community to determine a community score and a winning community. PebbleCreek in Goodyear was this year’s winner.
Trophies are also awarded to the best shooter from each community. The top three female and male shooters across all communities walk away with additional trophies.
