Greetings Indiana Shooters!
Hopefully when you read this you are at the Grand American, enjoying some nice weather, good friends and great trap targets! By now the 2019 Indiana State Shoot has concluded and hopefully everyone had a great time. I will of course be writing more next month about this year’s shoot. I do want to thank everyone who was able to attend! Also if you see them around the Grand congratulate Gene Baxter and Scott Norris for being inducted into the Indiana Hall of Fame this year.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Indiana shooters reaching Lifetime Target Attainment achievements recently and want to congratulate each of you for reaching these milestones. Adam Hart recently eclipsed the 100K total combined mark, Gary Smith reached 25K in Handicap, and I hit the 25K mark in Doubles. He might have not done it quite yet, but Bill Tempest is very close to hitting the 100K total birds shot in BOTH Singles & Handicap! George Harvey & Ginny Matthews are right at the 100K total for Handicap, and Gene Schneck has over 100K in Singles now. These lifetime target milestones are a great accomplishment and show a true commitment & dedication to our sport over many years of competitive shooting.
Make sure you check out the Indiana trap website www.indianatrap.comfor a full listing of all of the Registered ATA shoots being held this summer at clubs all over Indiana.
Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything or would like to have anything included in this article for Indiana.
Jason Barnett, ATA Delegate – Indiana
