Looking Back at a Successful RCAW 3rd Annual Trap Shoot Event

By Donovan Gladstone, RCAW Board Director

Members encouraged to look forward to 2024 after successful 2023 shoot.

The sun was shining, shotguns were blasting, and clay pigeons were exploding into pieces as Washington State roofing contractors put on their Clint Eastwood grins and competed in the 3rd Annual RCAW Trap Shoot competition at the Tacoma Sportsman’s Club on April 14, 2023. 

Out of the seven teams of 5 shooters per team, Hope Roofing from Port Townsend, WA won 1st place. They were recognized on stage holding up the big $500 check to win it all. A lot of smiles, laughs and great fun were had by all. Around $1,000 worth of raffle prizes were given out, consisting of Cabela’s gift cards, backpacks, tents, knives, hunting gear, BBQ and much more.   

On average the RCAW Trap Shoot event has around ten teams of 5 shooters per team, but the RCAW is raising this to 15 teams of 5 shooters per team in 2024 for a total of 75 shooters. The Tacoma Sportsman’s Club is on Canyon Road in Puyallup. In the future, RCAW is looking at possibly doing an additional RCAW Trap Shoot competition north of Seattle and one in eastern WA at the same time to make it easier logistically for all the RCAW members. It is usually held on a Friday in the middle of April.  Please be sure to look at the RCAW website for 2024 dates and locations set for this event! 

The Annual RCAW Trap Shoot Competition was established to bring RCAW members together in a fun setting, to celebrate our great industry and for RCAW members to get to know each other and enjoy themselves. RCAW is a non-profit with the goal of continuing to raise the bar in our industry with regards to professionalism, education, support and success. Funds generated from events such as the RCAW Annual Trap Shoot Competition financially support the growth and development of the RCAW to better support Its members. 

A great thanks goes out to the Sponsors of this event. State Roofing was the main anchor sponsor of the event. PABCO was the lunch sponsor, Beacon the ammunition sponsor, and Capital One, Eagleview Technologies, IB Roof Systems and Benefits Solutions NW were all table sponsors. The RCAW and all of its members greatly appreciate the support you have given to make this even such a great success.
