2019 Season Highlights

In the Southern Division, Skaneateles's 391 beats Pompey's 387 for Division winner and also defeats Toad Harbor for the 2019 CNY Annual Tournament Team Champions. Len Kallfelz wins High Gun over Joe Macewicz, Mike Rice, and Zach Humez. Carson Haaf from Pompey won his shoot off against Allyson Tomkos from Bridgeport to claim the Sub Junior champion trophy for 2019. Cliff Haff -Senior Vet, Joanna Bishop -Lady, Mike Bumpus Jr -Junior, Crag Chesbro -Veteran, all won their categories. Class winners were Mike Rice- AA class, Rich Bobbett- A class, Dave Urban- B Class, Jan Narewski- C class, and Richard Petrie- D class.

Heidi Womer of Skaneateles is the first lady to claim the league's High Average award for 2019!

South 5-man Team, Heidi Womer .9789, Len Kallfelz .9740, Tim Corrente .9711, Rick Kenyon .9663, Matt Carr .9600, beat the North 5-man Team for 2019.

Long runs for 2019 were Patty Logan with 125 straight, followed by Heidi Womer, Len Kalfelz, Tim Corrente, Brian Kiteveles, Jim Dries, Chris Coogan, and Michael Rice with 100 straight.

At the NY Trapshooting Championships Skaneateles shooters really stood out . . . again. Many-time All-American Justin Slater added to his long list of Championships winning the Doubles, the HAA, and the HOA Championships, plus the Singles Champion Runner-up title. At the same time, a new State Champion from Skaneateles broke a long-time barrier in the Singles Championship. Heidi Womer outlasted Justin and two other shooters in shoot-off for the Singles Championship. Any shootoff is a high pressure situation, but when it came down to Heidi and fellow teammate Justin for the State Championship, I have to believe that pressure was ramped up a notch. Heidi is now the first woman to claim the NYS Singles Championship in the 158 year history of the event!!!

Also, if anyone remembers Heidi's husband Urb . . . he did ok too, tying for the state Doubles Championship with Justin, and claiming the State HAA and HOA Sub-Vet titles. From Camillus, Marco Palumbo, again, won the NYS Junior Singles Championship with a 197x200.



2018 Season Highlights

2018 CNY Trap League Annual Shoot Off Tournament Scores

2018 was Tim Corrente's year in the CNY Trap League! We all knew heading into the Championship that Tim had won the League Hi-Average award, and at the Championship he broke 50x50 plus another 25x25 in a shoot-off to claim the League Champion title, and he added a 49x50 in the South's win over the North in the 5-Man competition. Not a bad year!

Skaneateles won the League Championship at Toad Harbor this year beating Pathfinder, but Toad Harbor took Club of the Day with the highest team score of 388x400.

2018 CNY Trap League WINNERS List

Thanks to all the participants in the Annual Shoot Off September 9, 2018 at Toad Harbor. The link above has all the winners (High Averages and Shoot Off Winners for 2018) as well as the other pages on the website.

Week 20 Highlights: Tim Corrente of Camillus is the 2018 League Hi Average Winner with 98.00% for the season! Pathfinder beats Central Square 194 to 178, while Toad Harbor beats South Shore 200 to 196. Pathfinder is the 2018 Northern Division Champ!

In the South, Camillus gave it everything against Division Champs Skaneateles, coming up one 25 short in a 199 to 200 loss. Skaneateles only needed a tie to claim the Division title in the South, and they made sure of at least that with twelve 25's. Pompey beat Bridgeport 196 to 193, finishing second in the Division again. Three Rivers really poured it on with the last couple squads, pounding DeWitt 199 to 186. Things are really looking up for Three Rivers, not a large team, but they have a number of shooters in contention for the 5-man Team.

2017 Season Highlights

2017 CNY Trap Annual Tournament Scores & Winners (Sorted by High to Low)

Congratulations to Chad Findlay from Three Rivers, who is the 2017 CNY Trap League Champion after a three round shoot-off! After the first round of shoot-offs, it came down to Chad and Pompey's Jim St. Pierre. In the second round, Chad overcame one of the toughest things a shooter has to control in a shoot-off - dropping an early target and not letting it get away from you. He kept his head down and kept on breaking the remaining targets, and was given another chance when Jim dropped his 24th target to cause a third round. In the last round, Chad prevailed to claim the championship and Jim claimed the Champion-Runner trophy. This is the second year in a row, when with only 2 shooters left, a shooter dropped his 24th target to let the other shooter back in.

The South's 5-man Team of Earl Wilcox, Rick Liberty, Jim St. Pierre, Cliff Haaf, and Len Kallfelz prevailed in a narrow win against the North, in a match that neither team seemed to want to win. Hey, it was great to see a couple of 870's out there on the line for the North Team

From both the 2017 Spring meeting and the 2016 Fall meeting, there are a couple of changes to highlight-

1) ALL Junior (age 16-18) and Sub-Junior (age 12-15) shooters will have there registration fees PAID by the CNY Trap League for the 2017 Season. This means the normal registration fee of $10 for each Jr/Sub will still be in the Prize money but the CNY League will pay for it. It is our hope to encourage more young shooters to join the league in 2017.

2) The High Average shooter in the North Division and in the South Division (not to include the Overall High League Average) will each be awarded a trophy at the Annual Shoot-Off Tournament for 2017 and future years.

2017 Week 20 Highlights: 

The regular season is over. All shooters need to review their scores for accuracy as soon as they are posted to this site. Contact your team captain immediately with any errors.

As everyone knew already, Toad Harbor is the 2017 Northern Division Champ, finishing with no losses and no ties, actually only a single match was even close throughout the year. There was some excitement in the North on the final evening as Central Square pulled-off a one bird win over South Shore. As mentioned here last week, it looked like South Shore and Pathfinder would finish the year in a tie for second place in the division, but Central Square could not be ignored. Well, Central Square did it, playing the spoiler and relegating South Shore to third place. Pathfinder beat North Sportsman 194 to 172. Central Square finishes in fourth and North Sportsman finishes fifth.

In the South, there is more parity and therefore more excitement as the final evening wrapped up. Pompey had a one point lead over Skaneateles heading into their final-night matchup at Pompey. Maybe Pompey had become overly reliant on DeWitt helping them out recently, but they certainly were not ready for what Skaneateles brought to their place! Skaneateles was more than ready, posting ten 25's against Pompey's five for a 200 to 197 victory, giving them the two points needed to take first place from Pompey!

DeWitt, accustomed to finishing in last place, was a little lost being one point ahead of both Bridgeport and Three Rivers coming into the final evening. Things were looking pretty good for them as it seemed this year would be one of the few where they did not finish in the cellar. Unfortunately, sub-junior Austin Polinsky lead Bridgeport to a 192 - 190 win at Dewitt. Dewitt's hopes were still alive as third place Camillus would certainly handle 3 Rivers, right? Well… no, 3 Rivers had 25's from Joe Caples and Chad Findlay to manage a tie with Camillus, giving them the single point they needed to catch DeWitt and force a tie for last place. DeWitt will be looking for a sweep against 3 Rivers next year for this!

This year the North has the edge over the South as far as the hi-average shooters are concerned. Although the South has dominated the 5-Man Team event over the last decade, it looks like the pressure is on this year!

2017 Most 200's: Toad Harbor (10), Pompey (7) and Skaneateles (4).

2017 Current Streaks: Chris Coogan and Wayne Wilcox - 75, Gary Rizzo, Phil Ricklefs, and Dennis Billington at 50.

2016 Season Highlights

2016 League Championship:

The League Championship Shoot-off was held Sunday, September 11th at the DeWitt Fish & Game Club. High winds made for a very challenging day as only 3 shooters managed to break all 50 targets. Len Kallfelz of Camillus was first in with a 50, soon followed by Peter Catalano and his son Peter Jr., both shooting for DeWitt. In the shootoff, Peter Jr. was down two targets, and his dad down one with only two targets left, while Len was still straight. The targets were sporty and Len dropped his 24th.

Peter Jr. claimed the Class A Champion trophy, while Len and Peter Sr., returned to the line for another round of 25. In the second round, Peter Sr. did not let the pressure get to him, breaking all 25 targets to Len's 24. Len Kallfelz claimed the League Champion Runner-up award, while Peter Catalano is the 2016 CNY Trap League Champion!

A nice day for the Catalano family was made even better as son Christopher was the League Sub Jr. winner also.

2016 Week 20 Highlights:

In the Northern Division, Toad Harbor repeats as division champion, but runner-up Pathfinder made sure they had to work for it. Toad traveled to Pathfinder needing at least a tie to claim the title, and ended up with a win in a very close match, 199 to 198. Following up on their 194 from last week, North Sportsman had another good night, beating Central Square 188 to 187 with Bill Steding's 25 making the difference. South Shore had a bye and finished in 3rd place, with Central Square and North Sportsman rounding out the final two spots.

In the South, Skaneateles beat Three Rivers 199 to 197 and claimed the division title handily, finishing 5 points ahead of second place Pompey. Pompey traveled to DeWitt and put a lot of chalk on the board with their 200 to 194 win. Lee Smith reached 100-straight and led Bridgeport to a nice win over Camillus, 198 to 195, crushing DeWitt's quest to stay out of last place. Camillus, Three Rivers, Bridgeport and DeWitt finished the season in 3rd through 6th places, respectively.

The 5 man team in the South had a very close race among the top 6 contenders. Tim Wilcox was at #6 entering the final night, just barely trailing the 3rd through 5th place shooters. He posted an early 25 to give himself a chance at moving up a few places on the list, but none of the others gave up any ground, all posting 25's to keep from getting displaced.

Congratulations to John Wallace, his son Daniel Wallace, and grandson Keegan Wallace, who each shot a 25 straight for Pathfinder on June 21, 2016. John, one of only a handful of NY shooters to ever break 100 straight in handicap at the NYS Shoot, was on the board first and especially proud to see Dan and Keegan tie him that night since every one of those targets was needed to get the 200 and tie Toad Harbor.

At the Spring 2016 CNY League meeting Dick Masterpole stepped down (up?) and is now the CNY League President for 2016 while Chris Pollichemi has assumed the role of Secretary/Treasurer for 2016. We should all thank Dick Masterpole for over 10 years hard work as the CNY Trap League Secretary/Treasurer!!

2015 Season Highlights

2015 CNY Champs

2015 CNY League Champion and Runner-up: Pompey's Alex Wisniewski breaks 125 straight to beat son-in-law Tim Wilcox!

The 2015 regular season ended August 18th, and it was a record setting year! 836 shooters registered in the league this year, the largest participation ever!

The League Championship was held at the Pompey Rod & Gun Club on August 30th. The weather was great and Pompey had the facility in great shape for the 368 shooters competing.

In the team Division Winners' championship, the North's Toad Harbor took the League title over the South's Pompey by one target, 393 to 392. Skaneateles was the High Club at the Championship with a 395.

In the individual races, host club Pompey's shooters dominated, winning both the Championship and the Champion Runner-up titles.The League Championship was claimed by Alex Wisniewski with 50x50 plus another 75x75 in shootoff over 13 other shooters. After the first round of 25 shootoff targets, only Wisniewski and his son-in-law Tim Wilcox remained. Alex and Tim each continued with another 25-straight in the second round. In the third-round, Tim missed one to claim the Champion Runner-up title with 50x50 plus 74x75, while Alex broke them all to claim the Championship. Congratulations to Alex on winning this prestigious title, breaking a personal best 125 straight on the day!

Class winners were: Class AA: Matt Netto of Toad Harbor 50x50; Class A: Bob Green of Toad Harbor 50x50; Class B: Dennis Billington of Skaneateles 50x50; Class C: Kelly Taylor of Three Rivers 47x50; and Class D: Jeffery Bubb of Pompey 49x50.

Category winners were: Hi-Lady: Patty Logan of Skaneateles 50x50; Hi-Sub Jr: Owen Recore of Toad Harbor 46x50; Hi-Junior: Peter Catalano of DeWitt 49x50; Hi-Vet: Bob Weldin of Pathfinder 49x50; and Hi-Sr. Vet: Don Wells of South Shore 50x50.

The North v South 5-man team competition pits teams of the 5 highest average shooters in each division in a 50-target match. The South's team of Rick Kenyon (49), Rick Liberty (49), Tim Wilcox (48), Jim St. Pierre (49) and Len Kallfelz (47) beat the North's team by a score of 242 to 232.

2015 Week 20 Highlights:

The League wrapped-up another successful regular season on August 18th with 836 registered shooters, the largest participation ever!

In the North, Toad Harbor couldn't quite match their performance of August 4th, only managing to post twenty 25's on the way to a 200 to 193 win over North Sportsman! Toad Harbor is the 2015 Northern Division Champion. Second place Pathfinder also posted a 200 in their win over South Shore's 197. South Shore finished third, with North Sportsman and Central Square taking fourth and fifth place in the division.

In the Southern Division, Pompey traveled to Three Rivers knowing that the Division title rested on at least a tie, or as a last resort relying on last place DeWitt to beat second place Camillus. Similar to last week, Pompey's top shooters where absent from the top of the board, but three 25's were still turned in, including a league 1st time 25 by Dennis Bobbette, to claim the win by a score of 195 to 193. Pompey is the 2015 Southern Division Champion. Dewitt put up a good show at Camillus, having a chance to tie with their last squad, but ultimately lost 195 to 193. Third place Skaneateles beat Bridgeport 197 to 192. Three Rivers finished in fourth place, followed by Bridgeport and Dewitt in fifth and sixth place.

Rick Kenyon and Dave McCrea had 25's to reach 150 straight, Tim Corrente and Matt Tracey reached 75 straight, and Dave Bean reached 50 straight.

Congrats to Dennis Bobbette and Jared Hemmingway on their 1st-time league 25's!

2015 Most 200's: Toad Harbor (6), Pompey (3), Pathfinder (3), Skaneateles (2), South Shore (1)

2015 Long Runs: Rick Kenyon & Dave McCrea with 150; Len Kallfelz and Mark Dittly with 125; Mike Latocha with 100.

2015 League 1st-Time 25's: Stan Kot, Nate Arndt, Zach Daino, Dave Simmons, Terry Ramsey, Marco Palumbo, Pat Duffin, Jake White, Drew Thoms, Noah Edick, Griffith Goodnou, Cody Bohand, Steve Procopio, Bill Benz, Dennis Bobbette, Vince Giarrusso, and Jared Hemmingway

Congratulations to Toad Harbor on their August 4, 2015 match, possibly the best performance ever recorded in the league. Toad shooters posted twenty-five 25's and twenty-four 24's that evening in a one point win over South Shore. As we find quite often, league records are not available, and some seem to recall a team posting twenty-five 25's before, but adding twenty-four 24's to that makes it unlikely to ever have been matched. I'll go out on a limb here and call it a new league record that will likely never be matched! Toad probably should have retired that board, sprayed some poly on it, and hung it in the Clubhouse! (Now hearing that Pathfinder had twenty-seven 25's one night many, many years ago, but records are likely nonexistent!)
