From The Desk of The President:

Dear Shooters:

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 you have tokens from previous state shoots, they will not be honored.)

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 history.

See you on the course.

Harvey T. Schwartz, President

Georgia Sporting Clays Association
