Registered Shoots  Just one registered shoot this week and it is a big one. The Turkey Shoot will kick off on Friday, August 17 and continue on through Sunday, August 19th. There are 8 registered events you can shoot in. At this time there are 391 entries in the main event with plenty of room left for more!
  This just in, Becky Rogers at the Meadows says you may shoot the sub gauges and/or the super sporting on Thursday between 10 am and 5 pm. 
  That was nice of the Meadows to do this as it will help eliminate some of the rushing around on Friday thru Sunday.
  Now for some bad news, Foxhall has canceled all registered shoots for the rest of 2018 including the one scheduled for Saturday, August 18, 2018.
They hope to be back on the schedule for 2019.

Talk around GSCA  ● Over 2,000 Youth Shooters competed at the SSSF Nationals. Photo is on the right! I don't know if all the shooters in the line are waiting on lunch or if it is a Welcome to the shoot photo. It would make for a great photo from a drone flying by!
● Interesting factoid! There were 5,528 registered events, not shoots reported by NSCA in 2017. Georgia had 7 in the top 25  By event, I mean main event, 5-stand, etc. Six of those events were from the US Open at Big Red Oak. The seventh was the main event at the Seminole Cup held at Broadfield.
  The largest event was the main event at the Nationals with 515,325 targets thrown (300 target event) and the second largest was the main event at the US Open at Big Red Oak with 225,533 targets thrown (200 target event). Outside the top 25 was the Georgia State Shoot main event at #37. I think that these are a great accomplishment for GSCA! Click here to see the complete list.
●  Congrats to Todd Simmons!
