I hope everyone weathered the winter well and getting ready to shoot some registered targets. Here in Indiana, it is starting to warm up enough so we can get out and shoot.
The AIM program will be shot on Tuesday, July 9th this year. This is the first day of the State Shoot. The coaches of the AIM shooters will need to get their teams pre-registered and pre-squadded. For any information about the AIM program you can contact the Indiana AIM director Keith Weller.
For anyone who wants to shoot a large number of targets in a short period of time, there are several marathons offered by our gun clubs in Indiana. Marathons will not only allow you to get your target requirements, but also help get rid of the rust after not shooting all winter.
Now is also a good time to volunteer at your local club. I am sure that our local clubs could use our help, as they are getting ready for a new shooting year. Even if it is just setting up targets, club managers really appreciate the help. Also support your local clubs with shooting there. They need our help more than ever.
Plans are already being made for another great Indiana State Shoot July 9th -13th . I hope that our State Shoot will be part of your plans for this coming year. Also remember the Indiana Zone Shoots. They are May 10-12, Northern Zone-Fulton County Gun Club and Southern Zone- Indian Creek Shooting Center. May 3-5, Central Zone- Roachdale Gun Club.
