Greetings Indiana Shooters!
Happy 2020 to everyone! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed the New Years holiday. I know I am looking forward to a fun-filled, exciting 2020 and am sure you are too. Fortunately, the weather will start improving soon and trap clubs all over Indiana will again soon be filled with shooters.
I want to pass along my condolences to our friends to the east in Ohio. Clyde Findley passed away in November. Clyde was a former ATA Delegate and very active with the OSTA. I always enjoyed talking to Clyde and I know he will certainly be missed at many shoots & clubs.
Here are some important shoot dates for 2020 that you should plan to attend. The ITA Zone shoots will all be held on the same weekend this year, which is unique, on May 15-17, 2020. Roachdale will host the Central Zone, Vincennes the South Zone, and St. Joe Valley the North Zone. The Indiana State Shoot will be held July 7th-12th, 2020. Evansville Gun Club will once again be a host site for the ATA Central Zone, July 31-August 2, 2020. Then of course the Grand American will take place August 5-15.
Make sure you check out the Indiana trap website www.indianatrap.com for a full listing of all of the Registered ATA shoots being held next spring & summer at clubs all over Indiana. Please never forget without all of these Clubs this sport wouldn’t exist, get out and support them!! Shoots for 2020 are being added as soon as possible to the website.
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
