Trapshooting Championship Turns 100
Hundreds of shooters from all over the country are in the mountains this weekend.
It's the 100th Anniversary of the North Carolina Trapshooting Championship at the state homegrounds in Bostic.
"It's clay targets, machine throws them out, you don't know where it's going to go, and when you call for the bird then you shoot at it, hopefully you hit it," said Lincolnton shooter Tracy Sanders - describing the game in a nutshell.
About 450 people are entered, marksmen and women range in age from about ten to 90-years-old. It's one of the bigger events of the year for the county, with about 1,000 people expected to come in for the event which runs through Sunday.
