Staff Report

Craig Trap Club begins its annual Polar Bear League Sunday at its headquarters at Moffat County Road 64 off US Highway 40.

As the climate remains chilly, competition is heating up for Craig Trap Club's Polar Bear League.

The Polar Bear League begins Jan. 7 and runs through March 31 for shotgun shooters at the Trap Club headquarters at US Highway 40 and Moffat County Road 64.

Sessions are twice weekly at 10 a.m. Sundays or 6 p.m. Thursdays.

Daytime shoots involve fluorescent orange targets, while evening activities use white targets under spotlights.

Polar Bear sessions are open to individuals and families with a $60 registration fee for the league, with practice rounds $5 for club members and $6 for non-members.
