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 quality 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!
