The Rapid City Trap and Skeet Club will begin league action Tuesday.

The league will run nine weeks. Team sponsorship is $75, with a weekly fee of $15 to shoot 50 rounds. All participants must be a club member to participate in the league. The club membership is a $30 member fee, $40 for family or $300 for a lifetime membership.
