Greetings Indiana Shooters!
Hopefully everyone is looking forward to a productive 2022 shooting season in Indiana like I am. Obviously, we will have a few obstacles to overcome with the lack of shells, fuel costs and inflation of prices on everything going on these days. My only hope is a majority of people’s eyes will be more open now than ever before on the importance of who they vote for in local, state and especially national elections.
The dates and locations for the 2022 Indiana Zone shoots are set and I anticipate we will have a great turnout at each location to show support for these host clubs that work so hard to hold these Zone shoots. The Central Indiana Zone will be held this year at Kingen Gun Club with a Preliminary Day on Friday, May 13th and Championship Days on Saturday May 14th and Sunday May 15th. Both the Northern Indiana Zone, held at Fulton County Gun Club, and the Southern Indiana Zone, at Evansville Gun Club, will be held the same weekend with Preliminary Day on Friday, May 20th, and Champ Days Saturday May 21 & Sunday May 22. I look forward to seeing many shooters at all 3 of these locations!
Of course, I hope your calendar’s are marked for the 2022 Indiana State Shoot will be held at our homegrounds in Fishers on July 5-10, 2022. If you need info about the shoot please reach out to me. All camping & vendor inquiries should be directed to Dan & Desira Fesler via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
