Jacob Anthony Zamora Memorial ShootBy Brad L.
Page 62 of the February 2006
Jacob Zamora was a 19-year-old
young man with a dream of becoming a California Highway
Patrol officer. Unfortunately, Jacob didn’t live long
enough to realize his dream. But his name and his dream
live on in the annual Jacob Anthony Zamora Sporting
Clays Memorial Shoot. This event is not a day of
mourning, but a celebration of Jacob’s life.
Held November 19 at the beautiful Oaktree Gun Club in
Newhall, California, this year’s event drew shooters
from all over the southwest, including some of Jacob’s
close family and friends. With all proceeds raised to
benefit the Newhall chapter of the California Highway
Patrol Explorer Program, it’s easy to see why this event
is so popular.
Oaktree’s sporting clays course is laid out over the
rugged terrain of the Santa Monica Mountains located
just north of Los Angeles. With deep canyons and tall
mountains to work with, owner Tim Mitchell and manager
Tom Stephens set a challenging course. Even though this
was a charity event, they used everything at their
disposal to confound shooters.
