Response to Haggis for Breakfast (Reply #8)

Tue Oct 30, 2018, 11:33 PM

24. My first job was at a trap and skeet club

when I was 13 years old. I pulled and scored for the shooters which meant you sit in an elevated chair with a button in your hand that remotely operates an automated “thrower “ that launches a clay disk or “pidgeon” for the marksperson to shoot wiith a shotgun. When the shooter yells “pull!” I’d push the button to send the clay pidgeon into the air for the marksperson to shoot. Skeet refers to the clay pidgeon moving from side to side and Trap refers to the clay pidgeon that moves away from the shooter. It was a great first job. I loved it. I made $3.10 per hour back in 1978.
