August 2013 ATA Delegate Report
We experimented with an Elder category (75 and older) this year. This was a big success. We had 22 Elder shooters in the Singles Championship on Saturday. On Friday we had a Sub Junior (Hunter Thornton) shoot off with an Elder (Rich Garey). I can't think of another sport where something like this can occur.
I am aware of two people who reached significant milestones at this shoot. John Bull shot his 100,000th Doubles target. Norm Gilmoure shot his 50,000th Handicap on Friday and on Saturday, he shot his 50,000th Singles target. Congratulations to both these men. Achievements like this show a serious dedication to our sport.
This month's report is a little short, as my typist underwent eye surgery and is unavailable at this time. Next month I will discuss the categories a little more and the result of the Elder category at our shoot. Feel free to call or email me with your opinions. I need to know what you are thinking. I will also look into all the good work being done to benefit the youth shooters in Southern Illinois by the SIYSSA.
I want to thank you for allowing me to continue as your Delegate. I promise to do my best for the shooters in Illinois. Please call or write with any information. I need your help to keep these reports interesting.
