The 2019 Trident Cup started as a combination of ideas. Rick Hemingway, the owner of The Meadows Gun Club and Shooting School, envisioned an annual spring shoot that would provide shooters a quality tournament during this beautiful time of year in Georgia. Eric Dorsey, owner of On Point Shotgun Sports, was determined to bring a uality 200 Target FITASC event to Georgia. When these two ideas were discussed in early 2019, Rick suggested, “offering shooters 200 Target Super Sporting, 200 Target Sporting, and 200 Target FITASC.” Eric was immediately onboard with this unique idea for a tournament! Becky Rogers, Manager of The Meadows Gun Club, was also all in on the idea! The three collectively started working out the tournament details. The timing seemed to be perfect when, the NSCA sent out bid requests to host one of the new NSCA FITASC Grand Slam Tour Stops, and The Meadows was awarded the shoot.
May 2 nd – 5 th , 2019 was chosen for the date and with the schedule of events set, it was agreed by all three that the awards needed to be something special. All classes deserve a chance to earn awards, so payouts will be guaranteed to HOA, Runner Up, and 3 deep in each class, in ALL events. Guaranteed Payouts will total over $35,000.00. The option to choose guns as prizes over cash was also implemented Thanks to Rick and Beretta. On Point Shotgun Sports will sponsor The Iron Man Challenge, all entrants that participate in each of the three events will automatically be eligible for these awards/payouts. Games will include Make-A-Break and Long Bird with daily payouts. Saturday night will consist of a Top Eight Super Sporting Scores shoot off and a social event with food and drinks.
The Meadows Gun Club and Shooting School is an awesome club. Located in Forsyth, GA close to numerous hotels and restaurants. Combine all the events, awards, and a great location and The 2019 Trident Cup will be a tournament you won’t want to miss!
