Bald Mountain to Host 2017 U.S. FITASC Grand Prix

//Bald Mountain to Host 2017 U.S. FITASC Grand Prix

Bald Mountain Shooting Range in Lake Orion, MI was selected to host the prestigious U.S. FITASC Grand Prix and Kolar Classic. FITASC, as it is called in the U.S., is an international shooting discipline which is governed by the “Federation Internationale de Tir Aux Sportives de Chasse” in Paris, France. FITASC is an international form of sporting clays which features layouts, instead of stations. Many would argue that it is the ultimate challenge in clay target shooting. The U.S. FITASC Grand Prix & Kolar Classic which will be held June 19-25, 2017, is one of only two international World Cup FITASC events that will be held in the United States in 2017. The event is also a qualification match for shooters trying to earn a position on the NSCA (National Sporting Clays Association) USA team.

Over 400 SHOOTERS are pre-registered to participate in the competition, meaning it will be the largest registered clay shooting competition ever held in the state of Michigan. All of the United States’ top competitors are scheduled to participate, including past World and National champions.

FITASC, however, is not the only thing that competitors will be able to shoot. We will be offering traditional sporting clays, sub gauge and 5-stand events too!

650 Available NSCA Targets To Shoot
200 Target Old Style FITASC, 150 Target Sporting Clays Main (75×75), 100 Target Sporting Clays Preliminary, 100 Target 5-Stand, 50 Target 20 Gauge FITASC, 50 Target 28 Gauge FITASC
