I hope everyone is having a safe & successful winter. At the time I’m writing this we just wrapped up Christmas and are looking forward to a New Year. But when you are reading this it will be February, and we will be on the downside of the cold winter weather and hopefully everyone is looking forward to and preparing to unload a lot of shotgun shells in their trap guns in 2017!
Speaking of 2017, please make sure your calendars are all marked for many great shoots around the State of Indiana this year. Like always we will have our Indiana Zone shoots in May. While the exact dates are still being worked out with each club, our host clubs for 2017 will be Fulton County Gun Club in the North Zone, Roachdale Gun Club in the Central Zone, and Indian Creek Shoot Center in the South Zone. Then of course we will have our 123rd Indiana State Trapshooting Championships at Indiana Gun Club on July 4-9, 2017. Also please plan to attend the ATA Central Zone shoot at Evansville Gun Club on July 28-30. Plus of course all of our many ATA clubs will be hosting numerous shoots throughout the year. Keep an eye on indianatrap.com and shootATA.com websites in addition to Trap & Field magazine as all of the shooting schedules are finalized for the target year.
I do have an exciting announcement for our Indiana Hall of Fame…our 2017 Hall of Fame Inductees will be Mr. Harold Bowers and Mr. Donald Barker! Congratulations to both of these well-deserved inductees. The successes and contributions to trapshooting of these two gentlemen are simply overwhelming and I truly look forward to their induction ceremony at the 2017 Indiana State Shoot.
As always, don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
