Greetings Indiana Shooters!
July 2020 is here and it is time to welcome everyone to the Indiana State Shoot, being held at the home grounds of the Indiana Trapshooter’s Association, the Indiana Gun Club. To say it has certainly been an odd year to be President of the ITA would be a definite understatement. Even with all of the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has presented, it has certainly been an honor to serve on the ITA Board of Directors these past 8 years and I look forward to continuing my involvement for many years to come as the Indiana ATA Delegate.
Speaking of the Indiana State Shoot, here’s a special message from our ITA Spectator Experience coordinator, Mrs. Roxie Antczak: July means it is time for the Spectator Experience at the Indiana State Shoot! Join us for “Fun In The Sun”. Don’t miss fabulous fun for families and shooters alike, including our annual Welcome Party and popular “Coffee & Crafts! You’ll be able to find our daily activities list on the ITA website and on the Spectator Experience Facebook page. During the shoot, daily events will be posted on our information board outside the gun club. We can’t wait to see you there!
Also don’t forget to plan to shoot at the ATA Central Zone shoot, July 31-August 2. Evansville Gun Club will once again be one of the locations for this shoot and if you’ve never been there before you really need to add this shoot to your list.
Please continue to monitor any shoot information on the Indiana trap website. If there are any vital updates about any changes to the Indiana State Shoot program they will be posted there, as well as any schedule changes with any of our Gun Clubs around the state. I want to thank John Voliva for all of the work he does to keep the website up to date, as well as Clarence Mason for maintaining the “shoot calendar” on the website. Obviously this year was a lot more work than normal for Clarence, trying to keep up with all of the shoot changes due to COVID-19.
Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything or would like to have anything included in this article for Indiana. I hope to see many if not all of you very soon at a trap shoot somewhere!
Jason Barnett, ATA Delegate – Indiana
