Chapter Calendar


Like all of us, the Stafford Trap Shooters have had a tough 2020. We stopped all Youth Team practices in early February. When we picked up practices in August with three new coaches, fewer active team members, and social distancing requirements, it was three weeks before the Virginia State Trap Shoot. The Youth Trap team sent 6 shooters to The Virginia Trapshooting Association State Shoot. AIM Trapshooting stands for Academic, Integrity and Marksmanship and our team showed all those attributes. The team displayed great Trap Skills, admirable team camaraderie, and their IWLA Alexandria pride. The Stafford Trap Shooters team placed first in the AIM Sub Jr. category. The Sub Jr. Category is for shooters that are 14 or under on Sept 1 of the Tournament year. Louis Marangoni placed second overall in his age bracket with a score of 188 hits out of 200 clays. We also had a shooter break a firing pin in his second round of the day. He showed great maturity and recovered well while using a backup gun. All shooters equaled or exceeded their personal best scores at some point during the day. Our youngest shooter scored 110 hits out of 200 using a 20 gauge, 8 days after his 13th birthday. The team displayed two IWLA flags on the team awning which was needed in the absolutely cloudless day. The 2020-21 Stafford Clay Shooters Youth Team is practicing 2pm-4pm, Sundays, after the Club shotgun range sessions. If you have or know of a youth interested in shotguns hunting or trap shooting have them contact the coaches through the IWLA.US website or come joins us any Sunday afternoon For more information contact Mark Telge mtelge[AT]gmail[DOT]com, or Pete Wettergreen peter[AT]wettergreen[DOT]com
