Dear Fellow Trapshooters,
As your new O.S.T.A. President, it is my honor to welcome you to the 2021 target year. My goal for the year is for Ohio to continue our long tradition as a premier state in our sport. Along with the Board of Directors and staff, we will work tirelessly to continue the growth of trapshooting in Ohio.
I would like to sincerely thank Jack Fishburn and his entire team for their efforts in 2020. This was a particularly difficult year with many restrictions, but they went to great lengths to ensure the Ohio State shoot could take place and be one of the greatest shoots in the country. Speaking for myself and the Board, we hope to continue the growth of this fantastic tournament and make it even bigger and better.
Congratulations to all the Ohio Shooters that accomplished their goals in 2020! Whether it be your first 25 straight, earning your 100 or 200 pin, taking the long walk back to the 27 yard-line, or making the All-American Team…hats off to you! Job well done!
As we start off the 2021 season, I would like to personally ask all O.S.T.A. members to invite someone to join them trapshooting. Always remember to take a kid shooting…but young or old, new shooters are how we grow and what ensures longevity of the Ohio State Trapshooting Association and great trapshooting in Ohio. I will be doing this throughout the year and encourage everyone of you to do the same.
I wish you the best of luck in the 2021 target year. I hope to see you on the line and at the 135th annual Ohio State Shoot!
Ohio State Trapshooting Association
