From The Desk of The President:
As we recover from hosting the largest US Open
in NSCA’s history, hats off to the Big Red Oak team for producing
this great tournament. From the target setters, trash detail,
trappers, referees, score keepers, organizers, parking lot
attendants, target loaders, and water replacement team, everyone
pitched in with great attitudes.
We now shift our focus to our 25th
Anniversary State shoot to be held June 29 to July 2, 2017 at The
Meadows Gun Club and Shooting School in Forsyth, GA. Some of the
items to be aware of include:
GSCA shooters tokens
will be given out in the amount of $50.00 per main event entry. (If

Our annual meeting
takes place on Saturday night. The location will be the Monroe
County Conference Center, 475 Holiday Circle, Forsyth, GA 31029.
Items announced will include Hall of Fame Inductees, Letsinger
Service Award winner, new Board members, and the 2018 State Shoot
location. Drawings will be held for 10 free main event entries
along with some special gifts.
The GSCA Board has
approved a very special goody bag item. The newly designed state
pin and sticker will be in your goody bag. Again, these will only
be given away to main event entries.
The third annual Dick
Phillips Invitational Shoot Out will take place on Friday evening
after shooting has concluded for the day. We draw the names of five
ladies, sub-juniors, and juniors from Main Event entries for a five
stand style shoot out. We intend to raise funds by passing the hat
with contributions accepted from the shooters. The GSCA will also
contribute $1,500 as we have in the past. Everyone in the shootout
will win something.
We look forward to one of the most exciting
shoots in GSCA history. Rick Hemingway and his staff always deliver
quality entertainment in all of his shoots. Join in and help
celebrate one of the most memorable times in Georgia Sporting Clays
See you on the course.
