President’s Message

My Fellow Trapshooters, O.S.T.A. Board Members and Dear Friends,

It has been my honor and privilege to serve the Board of Directors of the Ohio State Trapshooting Association over the last five years. My thoughts and hopes for this organization, are to keep the excitement and thrills in our youth and veteran shooters as exciting as it has been for me. Personally, I can hardly wait every year for the week of the State Shoot to start. It means that much to me! As your President for the 2019 target year, I promise to make your experience at the Ohio State Shoot as great and enjoyable as possible. Remember, the O.S.TA. Board design’s the Ohio State Shoot around you, the shooter, and your family.

I also would like to mention the great staff at the Cardinal Center for all they do to see that everyone has what is needed to put on such a large State Shoot. The facility is a real showplace for all shooting disciplines. Please take advantage of the family atmosphere at the Cardinal Center and enjoy all they have to offer. “Thank You” Mr. Fishburn!

I am blessed with the current Board of Directors that put their personal agenda’s aside and concentrate on what it takes to bring this tremendous State Shoot to the many shooters around the country. If ever there are issues concerning the State Shoot, please feel free to ask me or any officer or director, and we will work to get it resolved.

Finally, I wish to thank all those who in the past attended the Ohio State Shoot and look forward to your attendance again. We strive to bring you the very best entertainment we can during the seven days of events. Please encourage young shooters to keep shooting to keep our passionate sport alive.

Your 2018-2019 President,
Robert Caplinger
