Greetings Indiana Shooters!
I hope this issue of Trap & Field finds you healthy and your 2022 is off to a great start. I know for me personally the past few months through the Holidays have flown by and I am certainly looking forward to seeing everyone back on the trap fields and at the gun clubs this Spring.
I want to extend congratulations to our Indiana shooters that made the 2022 ATA All-American teams! These include Michael Gooch on the Open second team, Tank Lunsford on the Sub-Veteran first team, and Bobby Hubble & Vern Brown, both on the Senior Veteran second team.
Indiana trapshooting lost a great person on December 21, 2021, with the passing of Larry Schauss. I am honored to have had the opportunity to know Larry for many years and to serve with him on the Indiana Trapshooter’s Association Board of Directors. Larry was the Southern Zone Director for the ITA for the past several years and would have assumed the presidency of the organization in 2024. Beyond his contributions to the ITA, I know his passing will certainly leave a void at both the Evansville Gun Club and Boonville Gun Club, where to say he was simply an active member would be a colossal understatement. I know I can’t ever think of a time being at Evansville Gun Club that Larry wasn’t always doing something to help out the club. Condolences go out to his wife Mart and the entire Schauss family.
Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything or would like to have anything included in this article for Indiana. You can contact me here.
Jason Barnett, ATA Delegate-Indiana
