The Inland Northwest Trapshoot competition, sponsored by the Spokesman Review newspaper of Spokane, is the oldest and largest trap-shooting competition of its kind in the country and is in its 100th year.

Shooters in both Marlin and Odessa were on hand at their respective clubs on Sunday, January 7, opening day of the competition which runs every Sunday until February 25. All gun clubs and other groups willing to shoot at recognized clubs are allowed to compete, as are individuals.

The Marlin and Odessa clubs combine their scores for the purposes of the competition.
