Greetings Indiana Shooters!
Welcome to the new Target Year.
The 2022 Indiana State Trapshooting Championships was a success, and I am pleased to report our event entries were up 6.2% over 2021. I am very happy to report that we enjoyed our best weather for the week that I can recall for at least the past 10 years. We had a little bit of heat & humidity early in the week, a little rain one day, but overall we finally hit the weather right which seems to be our biggest obstacle the past many years. We owe a great amount of gratitude to our many volunteers, workers and the entire ITA Board of Directors & Officers for making this event possible. We had more financial contributors & donors this year, which really makes a big difference and it hopefully a trend we can continue moving forward. If anyone is interested in sponsoring an event for 2023, please let me know.
Congratulations to our 2022 Indiana State Champions. Devon Harris added another state title to his career with the Singles Championship, and Jeff Waggoner was crowned our Handicap Champion. Michael Gooch had a great shoot, capturing the Doubles Championship along with the HAA and HOA awards.
Make sure you mark your calendars for the 2023 shoot as we move to a little later in July dates. The 2023 shoot will be held at Indiana Gun Club on July 18-23, 2023.
