Hello Indiana Shooters!
May is upon us and the trap clubs in Indiana are all busy throwing targets in the air and hopefully many if not most of you have had more than a few chances to get out and break a bunch of them!
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 this spring. It is vital that we trapshooters get out and support our local clubs as much as possible. I know many clubs will be hosting Big 50 shoots during the week this season and these are a great way to get more shooting in and support the clubs!
The following three Clubs will be hosting the Indiana Zone Shoots in the month of May; make sure you have these marked on your calendars! Fulton County Gun Club will hold the North Zone shoot on May 10-12. Kingen Gun Club will have the Indiana Central Zone May 17-19, and Evansville Gun Club will host in the South Zone on May 24-26. Certain to be three great weekends to shoot.
Make sure you have your calendars marked for the 125thIndiana State Trapshooting Championships!! July 16-21, 2019…I look forward to seeing you there!
On the Indiana State Shoot topic, the ITA Board of Directors have been busy preparing for a great shoot this year. If you need any additional info, especially pertaining to camping, certainly let me know.
Speaking of the Indiana State Shoot, I received an update on an exciting event that will be taking place for all the non-shooters there as a part of the ITA Spectator Experience organized by Roxie Antczak. From Roxie: “Our Paint-by-Number “Selfie” event is scheduled for Friday, July 19 at 9:30am. Sheri from Studio 309 will be our instructor again this year and will provide everything from your pre-printed 16″ x 20″ canvas to paints, paintbrushes and guidance to help you create your own, personalized masterpiece. Your “selfie” doesn’t have to include you! We recommend no more than three subjects, but you are welcome to paint your pets, your kids or even your grandpets/grandkids. Your paint-by-number work of art would make a great wedding or anniversary gift for a special couple or hang it in your own home to show off your creativity. The class is scheduled for 2 to 3 hours and costs just $45. Pre-registration is required, and you must provide your original photo in advance in order to participate. Walk-ins for this event are not allowed due to the personalization required. You must pre-register by June 1st in order to reserve your seat and receive the link for payment and submission of your photo. (Payment/photo must be submitted by June 8th to allow time for printing). Stay tuned to the ITA Spectator Experience Facebook page for details on all the fabulous family fun in store at the 2019 Indiana State Shoot. Contact us if you have any questions or to get more information.”
A big thanks goes out to Roxie for all of the hard work she puts in year-round making the ITA Spectator Experience possible!
Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything or would like to have anything included in this article for Indiana.
