Tom Gayer took home a trophy as one of six top shooters in this year’s Robson Trap Trials held March 24 at Casa Grande Trap and Skeet. Quail Creek was this year’s winner and will host the 2024 event.

PebbleCreek hosted 74 shooters and their guests from Robson communities across Arizona for the 12th annual trap trials event. Participants shot three rounds of trap singles and capped the day with lunch and awards.

This unique trapshooting contest combines the top five individual scores from each community to determine a community score and a winning community. Those five shooters each receive a trophy. Trophies also go to the top shooter in each community, and the top three female and male shooters across all communities.
