Dear Fellow Shooters,
First of all, I want to congratulate Joseph Charnigo on winning the A.T.A. World Clay Target Championship at the 2019 Grand American. Secondly, I want to extend congratulations to all the Ohio shooters that were named to the A.T.A. All American teams as well as those who were selected to the All-Ohio Teams. This is a huge accomplishment and you all should be very proud.
As the O.S.T.A. President for the 2020 target year, I promise that myself and the O.S.T.A Board will work tirelessly to continue making your experience at the Ohio State Shoot a great one.
I would like to thank Mr. Fishburn and the great staff at the Cardinal Shooting Center, for not only building and operating the premier shooting complex in the country but improving on their original design by adding the shot curtains. The facility is a real showplace for all shooting sports. I encourage you to take advantage of all the shooting facilities the Cardinal Center has to offer. They have activities for all ages, so let’s get out and enjoy them.
The Board of Directors always strive to make the Ohio State Shoot one of the best, if not the best, State Shoot in the country. If an issue arises regarding the State Shoot, please let us know so we can work to get it resolved.
Please remember to encourage young people to experience trapshooting and encourage those that haven’t shot trap for some time, to get back to the line -their friends miss them! The youth are the future of our sport but let’s not forget our past and get our friends and family back to participating.
I wish you a great 2020 target year! The O.S.T.A. Board of Directors and Officers look forward to seeing you at the 134th annual Ohio State Shoot.
2019-2020 O.S.T.A. President
