The purpose of the USTA is to have fun,
while building friendships, old and new,
through organized competition that
supports all USTA clubs
and gives back to the shooting community
by providing a healthy environment
that fosters the growth of trapshooting in Utah.

"Message" from the President
What an amazingly mild winter we have encountered to date! I’m not sure about the rest of you, but it is definitely giving me the fever to get out and take the line. Fortunately for us, the Spring Grand is only 30 days away.
This is generally the kickoff shoot for the calendar year. If you haven’t been to Tucson, or have it on your bucket list, there is no time like the present! The Spring Grand generally has great weather, fantastic targets, and a bunch of familiar Utah faces to pass the time with in conversation.
Shortly after the completion of the Spring Grand, we fire up the trap houses around this neck of the woods. March has two AIM-ATA shoots at Ogden Gun Club, and the Utah State Round Robin starts in March as well. Check with your local club and see if they are participating in some capacity. Purgatory rounds out the month of March with their 3 day dedicated shoot March 27 – 29th.
The USTA officers are working hard on putting together programs, trophies, advertising, and the likes for the 2015 State Shoot. I would like to personally thank each and every one of them for all of their hard work and dedication.
One final note, take someone new out trapshooting, and introduce them to this amazing sport, and some of the greatest people I’ve met. You never know, you may have a new squad mate in your future.
