Trapshooting long break awards are presented annually at the Trap Hall of Fame Dinner The awards are in the form of a plaque and are for the longest breaks attained in each of the three events for the previous calendar year. The events are 15 Metres, 25 Metres and Double Rise.



Membership – The recipient must be an Australian citizen and a registered ACTA member at the time of each individual break and at the receipt of the award.

Eligible Events – Each break can be achieved in any event conducted in Australia or internationally provided that the Shoot Program detailing the relevant event was advertised in advance in the National magazine of the governing body.

Event Rules – The break must be attained in events conducted under ACTA Trap Rules or rules considered by the ACTA to be a sufficiently close facsimile thereof.

Validity – To be considered eligible, each individual break must conform to the criteria of ACTA Rule 4.23 regardless of what country the break was achieved in.

Substantiation – The onus is on the individual to provide satisfactory evidence to the ACTA of each individual break achievement and is not on the ACTA to disprove any claim made by an individual. Satisfactory evidence would normally be in writing and would include a copy of the Shoot Program and the Shoot results. If the Shoot results do not substantiate the claim, then a letter from the Shoot secretary detailing the break and enclosing a copy of the relevant score sheets would suffice.

Recording – The ACTA shall keep a updated list on the website of those shooters who have proven that they currently hold the longest break in each event.
