It's Gazzola (Province of Piacenza) where the Amateur Sports Association Ca 'dei Boschi "Trap" carries out its activities.
Far from traditional regional and national circuits, it is quite popular with shooters, exceedingly from other provinces.
Founded in 1997 by 9 friends and enthusiasts, the association owes its name to the farmhouse in which it is based, located in "loc. Ca 'dei Boschi"; the "trap" suffix, on the other hand, is due to the fact that initially there was only one machine for the "American trap" to which in the following years the two fields for the Olympic trap were flanked.
The shooting center management is carried out by the president (Mr. Giorgio Chiapponi, qualified FITAV instructor), supported by the technical and administrative profile, by all 120 the members of the association who never miss to provide their contribution in case of need.
