SHOOTING – Shooters from across the northwest will start competing Sunday in the 100th Inland Northwest Trapshoot. The competition, which is sponsored by the Spokesman Review, is the oldest and largest shoot of its kind in the country.

Competitors shoot every Sunday from Jan. 8 to Feb. 25. The competition is open to all gun clubs and other groups willing to shoot at recognized clubs. Individuals may also compete.

High scores will be published online at spokesman.com/trap.

To register email the following information to sports@spokesman.com: club name, the division you’d like to enter (woman’s, youth, open), club secretary, preferred email address and phone number.

Correction: The original version of this story incorrectly stated which year the competition is in. The trapshoot is in its 100th year.
