Bio: Metropolitan Clay Target Club

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets and is shot from 8 stations with only one shot permitted at each target. 7 stations are arranged in a semi-circular layout with the 8th station in the middle, between stations 1 and 7. Targets are thrown from a high-house behind station 1 and a low-house behind station 7.

Down The Line:
Down The Line is an Australian version of Trap. 5 stations are laid out in an arc with targets thrown from a trap hidden inside a bunker to their front. The trap oscillates left and right to throw targets in a 45 degree arc, randomly stopping and resuming movement to prevent shooters from predicting the angle of the target.

Tower is similar to Down The Line. 5 stations are placed in a straight line. Targets are thrown from a tower located behind the shooters. When a target is called for, the shooter remains facing forwards and waits until the target has flown overhead before taking up 2 shots to hit the target.

5 Stand:
5 Stand is shot from 5 stations and consists of 25 targets. Shooters stand in a cage designed to limit gun movement and targets are thrown from 5 traps. 5 targets are presented at each station.

Sporting Clays:
A number of stations are placed throughout the Club grounds. Each station presents 3, 4 or 5 targets to be shot as singles, doubles or report pairs. Different types of targets are used which are thrown in a variety of presentations.

Note: Due to the large area required to set up, Sporting Clays is only available to be shot on scheduled Sundays. See the Calendar of Events page for dates.
