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

Greetings from the confines of a warm office. As you well know, we are currently in the slow time of year for registered shoots, but there are a few events coming up in the not so distant future. Keep the frost off those bullet launchers and get ready for next season.  

There are a few AIM programs through the months of January and February, as well as the Spring Grand in Tucson.  

AIM Shoots are held at Ogden Gun Club on:

    January 9, 2016
    February 6, 2016

The Preliminary Spring Grand Starts on:

    February 17 - 21, 2016

The Spring Grand American Starts on:

    February 22 – 28, 2016

This is generally the kickoff shoot for the calendar year, as well as a point shoot for those of you that aspire for the All American Team. If you haven’t been to Tucson for this shoot, there is no time like the present! Generally it is great weather, great comradery and always a good time.  

There are plenty of fun shoots, 50 birders, etc. going on around the state this time of year. Should you want any information on these, you can find them on our Facebook page or reach out and give me a call.  

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 squadmate in your future.
