The NMSSA Board of Directors shall supervise the sport of skeet shooting in the State of New Mexico within the framework of the NSSA rules. NMSSA shall coordinate shoot schedules, pass on applications for registered shoots, settle all disputes within its jurisdiction, and see that NSSA rules are strictly enforced at all registered shoots held under its sanction. The NMSSA Board of Directors shall have the power to conduct all business of the association.

  • NMSSA conducts the State of New Mexico Skeet Shooting Championships

Each NMSSA club in good standing in the State of New Mexico may submit a bid to host the State Shoot. Applications must state whether the shoot is open or closed. The State Board will award the site. 

 
  • NMSSA holds the Champion of Champions event at the NM State Skeet Championships

The State Shoot will include a Champion of Champions Event. To be eligible for the I event, a shooter must have been reported as winning a single gun event (i.e. 12ga, 20ga, 28ga, or 410ga.) at a NMSSA sanctioned event during the previous State Shoot up to the beginning of the current State Shoot. Also eligible are reported HOA Champs of any NMSSA sanctioned event of 50 targets or more per gun and three guns or more during the same time period. The previous years winner of the Champion of Champions is automatically eligible for the event to defend the title. Eligibility is determined by the Secretary-Treasurer based on shoot records received from member clubs. The Champion of Champions event is scored using the first round of each gauge.
