The month of March saw a little more ATA action and a lot of league, Round Robin and USAYESS action.
Ogden and Purgatory Gun Clubs both held registered shoots. Considering Utah’s spring time weather, shooter turnout was good.
The AIM shoot at Ogden and the USAYESS shoot at Lee Kay both had a good turn of young shooters.
I would have to guess that approximately 400 shooters participated in the Round Robin state wide. Unfortunately, two of the three weeks during the Round Robin had winter like conditions. I applaud everyone who participated.
The Arizona State Shoot came and went with only four or five Utahan’s in attendance. Those from Utah that I spoke with shot well and said it was a well run shoot. You can check out the scores at http://shootscoreboard.com.
Registration for the Huntsman Senior Games is now open. The shotgun sports section is held the week of October 15th at Purgatory Shooting Sports. The events fill up in a hurry, so if you are over 50 and want to shoot, register as soon as possible. The same goes for getting lodging as well.
Our Utah State Officers are beginning to work on the State Shoot Program, so stay tuned for more information.
I want to remind all of our gun clubs that will be hosting shoots, please send an electronic copy of your program to the USTA, or myself, so it can be posted on our website.
During these rather slow times, I encourage all shooters (AAA or D), to read the rule book. Not just once, but three or four times. Each time through, I assure you that you will pick up things that did not sink in the first time. The rules can be found on-line at: www.shootata.com.
If anyone has topics they would like covered, or someone they feel should be recognized, please let me know.
