This one’s a little more local/personal than most of my posts, but I just wanted to give a quick shout out to shooters in the Houston area. Everyone in the area knows how bad the flooding has been since a few months ago and the kind of crazy we saw in town, but you may or may not be aware that until just a few weekends ago, one of the only decent Sport Clays courses in the area, at ASC, was down for the count.
While they had a limited reopening, still not too long ago, it was questionable when their sporting clays fields would be reopen, and if so, in what condition patrons would find them.
Well, I’d like to report, that they’re back up and running, and I’m digging the new arrangement. Blue course feels a bit more challenging that it did before (but is still nowhere near the red course’s difficulty, so no need for concern for the casual shooters). A few of the stands weren’t open at the moment, and you can still see that repairs are underway. Also, a new system is in place with a “pay as you go” instead of pre-loaded amounts. The pricing is a bit cheaper to build in the free presentation pairs, but since we usually shoot at those anyway, it’s just additional savings.
I’ll head back out in a week or so for a more detailed report and get some more pictures, as this was just a quickie 50 round run to see how the place looks after being under water for 3 months.
