I spoke with Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director, about a few topics thrown about the forum. The big topic...how well is trapshooting doing? And who or what defines the sport. I asked for some numbers to support some discussions. He gave me some interesting numbers. The SCTP Championships at the Cardinal Center had more participants in the singles event than the ATA singles event in Sparta. (10 more years) The SCTP had more participants at the Cardinal Center than the ATA event had in Sparta. Of course not all were trapshooters. So who has more trapshooters, the ATA or the SCTP? As per Mr. Wonrash, the SCTP has approximately 13,500 trapshooters. They are mandated to be ATA members. That 13,500 makes up a big chunk of the ATA, if you accept the ATA numbers. When I was a kid we didn’t have youth programs like this. It was Jammer that dragged me to the Grand at Vandalia. We were college kids and we were among the youngest. I was hooked. So how is trapshooting doing now? I think if you look at the SCTP numbers darn good. Thanks To Mr Wonrash for his time. I have more numbers for later. Time for a graph.
