Jack Toews placed second in a field of 74 shooters at the 2023 Robson Trap Trials held March 24 at Casa Grande Trap and Skeet. In addition to his second place Best of Field trophy, Jack took home a trophy for Community Top Shooter. Quail Creek was this year’s winner and will host the 2024 event.

PebbleCreek, as the 2022 winner, hosted the 12th annual event. Shooters represented six Robson communities across Arizona. Participants shot three rounds of trap singles and capped the day with lunch and awards.

This unique trap-shooting contest combines the top five individual scores from each community to determine a community score and a winning community. Those five shooters each receive a trophy. Trophies also go to the top shooter in each community and the top three female and male shooters across all communities.
