Quail Creek is the 2023 winner of the Robson Trap Trials, held March 24 at Casa Grande Trap and Skeet.

PebbleCreek, the 2022 winning community, hosted 74 shooters and their guests from Robson communities across Arizona for the 12th annual event. Participants shot three rounds of trap singles and capped the day with lunch and awards.

This unique trap-shooting contest combines the top five individual scores from each community to determine a community score and a winning community. Those five shooters each receive a trophy. Trophies also go to the top shooter in each community and the top three female and male shooters across all communities. Quail Creek will host the 2024 event.
