December 2010 Delegate Report

I would like to send my condolences to Sharon Kingen on the passing of her mother, Mildred “Pid” Kingen. Sharon, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I hope you can find comfort knowing that your mother is now united again with your father in heaven.

I hope everyone had a great year and met their trapshooting goals. In Indiana, we are almost finished shooting registered targets. Now is the time to think back about the past year and set goals for the coming year.  This is also the time to start thinking about where we are going to shoot next year. I want to encourage everyone to mark their calendars for July 5 – 10, 2011. This is the date of the Indiana State Shoot. The directors have already been hard at work to make this another one of the best shoots ever.

The Indiana Zone shoots for 2011 will be: Northern Zone at Fulton Co Gun Club May 20 -22, Central Zone at Kingen Gun Club May 13-15, and Southern Zone at Evansville Gun Club May 27 – 29. I hope as many shooters as possible can attend these zone shoots. The host clubs work very hard preparing and running these shoots.

I would like to congratulate all the fine shooters that made the Indiana All-State teams. I commend all the shooters for their hard work, practice and dedication that is needed in order to make the All-State teams.

The last thing I would like to say for 2010 is that I would like to dedicate the column to all of our trapshooters in Indiana who have passed away this year. Even though they are not with us physically, they are still present with us through the people they have touched. I would like for the families of these great men and women to know that your loved ones are still remembered by the shooters of Indiana and we keep you in our prayers.

Roland King
