Batesville Chamber Announces Upcoming Trap Tournament

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce and presenting sponsor, Liberty Bank, will host the 2nd Annual Chamber Trap Tournament on March 22 at the Independence County Shooting Sports Complex from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Mountain Man from Duck Dynasty will be available for a private meet and greet from 8 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Passes to the meet and greet, which includes breakfast, can be purchased at the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce for $10 each. Tickets are limited and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.

Each team will consist of five shooters shooting 25 targets in each round. At the end of the round, event officials will tally the scores and divide teams into evenly matched flights. Flights will be assigned similar to a golf tournament. Prizes will be awarded to winning teams in all flights.

Amateur shooters are encouraged to participate. Practice will be available the day before the tournament. Sponsorship opportunities are available and corporate teams are encouraged to participate. Registration is available by viewing the chamber calendar online at

Chamber President and CEO, Crystal Johnson, says, “Spectators are welcome at the tournament. It would be a good opportunity to visit the Shooting Sports Complex if you have never been. The facilities are truly state-of-the-art and are something we should all be proud to have right here in our backyard. The Annual Trap Tournament allows you to get to know others in the business community in a casual and fun-filled environment.”
