Bio of Harvey T Schwartz, President (incumbent)
Georgia Sporting Clays Association
Since being involved in the GSCA beginning in 2012, many changes and new records have occurred. We have achieved financial stability in the past few years due to a record number of clubs throwing record numbers of targets. This is our only source of income other than our club dues.
The number of targets thrown:
2016 1,041,325 targets
2017 1,863,973 targets
2018 1,516,030 targets
2015 1,239 members
2016 1,362 members
2017 1,419 members
2018 1,472 members
Currently there are 22 clubs in the state. Most of them are packing the calendar on a weekly basis bidding on dates to host their registered shoots.
Some of our achievements include:
11 Qualified Hall of Fame inductees since taking over as President;
Outstanding participation in our GSCA State Shoot;
Shooter appreciation tokens given to each shooter in the Main Event of the State Shoot;
Tremendous increase in our youth shooting numbers including SCTP, 4H, and YESS programs. Several new college teams have been formed and we continue to assist them in starting their programs.
My goals, going forward, are to continue to make sporting clays in the state of Georgia a major factor in the United States. We have had the largest US Open in NSCA history and our state shoots continue to grow. Our SCTP teams continue to win National Championships on a yearly basis. I continue to work with clubs on a regular basis to assist them in expanding their facilities allowing them to host larger shoots. One goal is to create another large shoot in the spring, which will be a multi-day registered shoot with a focus on youth shooters. The shooters in our state continue to get better and are winning large events all over the country. I want to continue to expand our instructional area so more can benefit from it.
I have enjoyed this passion since 2005, and I will continue to focus on sporting clays in the State of Georgia. I look forward to serving as your President for the next three years.
