Hi, everyone,

The Great Lakes Grand is going on. We’ve got the same rain and mud that was in New York last week at the Empire Grand. But ATA-ers are hanging in there and competing with vigor.

Calvin Stinson topped opening day’s singles event with 100 and won the next day’s 16s as well. Bill Grill was Wednesday’s Handicap winner with 97, and Kyle Mann blasted 99 on Thursday to win the yardage race.

Most everyone is geared up to head on over to Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio next week for the Buckeye Classic. Lots of ATA shooting going on around the country. Hope you’re smashing targets.

Hi, everyone,

I’m at the seventh annual Empire Satellite Grand.  Looks to be a good turnout although there was some rain.  Oh well, trapshooting is an outdoor sport. Mike Latocha took the top spot in opening day’s singles with 99. Brad Heath was winner of the handicap. ATA-ers are having fun here. Look to Trap & Field for complete results.

Great shooting, guys! Hey, did you call
each other this morning and plan
what to wear? Looking good and

What an exciting Southern Grand. It’s all wrapped up in the history books. Congrats to Mitchel Loveless II who won the Doubles Championship after one perfect round of shootoff.  Congrats to Leo Harrison who took the Singles and Handicap Championships, but not without some bouts. Clayborn Hunter  and Kay Ohye matched his 200 and ended with the Senior Vet and runnerup trophies, respectively.

Leo Harrison and Jenna Knott blasted 97s in Sunday’s Handicap Championship. It was trapshooting history at its best! The crowd of on-lookers at the shootoff were enthralled. It took three extra innings for Leo to attain the title. Jenna landed with the lady laurels and gained two yards to reach the 25.5 spot. Complete coverage in Trap & Field, the official magazine of the ATA.  Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who competed.

Maryland’s Ron Stinnett posted 98 for the vet honors. New York’s Wayne Schiavi and Maryland’s David Shaeffer Jr. vied 97s and ended second and third after shootoff.

Hi, all,

Shooting continues here at the Southern Grand. There were 19 100s posted on Tuesday in the singles event. In the day’s handicap Ray Stafford, Leo Harrison and sub-junior Ian Recla blasted 97s. Stafford was winner after prevailing in shootoff over Ian by just one bird. Harrison failed to answer the shootoff call and ended runnerup; Ian took the sub-junior category award.

Mike Dehabey, Paul Miller Jr. and Rob Taylor posted 96s and earned third, fourth and fifth places in the handicap. All-American Junior Captain Kie Kababik earned the category trophy with 96. Maryland’s Jean Greb collected the women’s prize with 95.  Good shooting, everyone.

The Singles Class is being contested. Watch for full results of this Satellite Grand  in Trap & Field Magazine.

Hi, everyone,

The 31st annual Southern Grand started on Monday. The weather is perfect with blue skies. Temperatures are warm and just a light breeze. ATA-ers have left the cold, the snow and the ice and made their way to the Silver Dollar SC in Odessa, Fla. It’s picture perfect Florida.

Congratulations to Joe and Amy Dement of Oakfield, Tenn. They recently wed and they each won trophies in the opening singles yesterday.  Both posted 99s: Joe earned the Class A trophy and Amy took the lady’s laurels. Carl Gentile of Erie, Pa., won the top spot in the day’s handicap with a 99. Florida’s Emanuel Boyer and Ontario’s Kyle Mann earned Sub-junior and Junior honors.  In the doubles, Leo Harrison earned the AAA award with 98. Terry Jordan was runnerup with 97. Kentucky’s Kenny Knott carded the field high 99 to take the AA prize and Minnesota’s George Pappas was AA second with 97.

It’s all happening here at the Silver Dollar. Look to Trap & Field for complete results.

Hi, everyone,

I’m at the Dixie Grand in Odessa, Fla., at the Silver Dollar Shooter’s Club. It’s been a great tournament this year. Attendance is up and it’s been hot competition. It’s been a little chilly and somewhat windy, but, hey, it’s winter in Florida.  There is no white stuff to shovel.

Congrats to Ray Stafford who won opening day’s singles, handicap and twins right out the gate. On Tuesday, Pennsylvania’s Andrew Zborovsky took the Class AAA trophy and Glen Lonneman was the runnerup, both with 99s. New York’s Michael Moran smashed 100 for the AA prize and Canada’s Terry Jordan was second with 99. That was no easy task for any of them in the tricky wind!  Harlan Campbell topped Tuesday’s doubles with the solo 100.  Richard Griffith of Covington, Ga., and Joe Sissano (Delegate of N.J.) smashed 93s in Wednesday’s windy handicap to end winner and vet winner, respectively. Rhode Island’s Norman Johnson posted the lone high 97 in Thursday’s yardage race.

 Today is Saturday and the Singles Championship is being contested. There are 84 squads. ATA-ers are shooting targets, playing cards, eating good food and doing what trapshooters do best: having a great time!  Hope you can get Silver Dollar and Florida shooting in your schedule this year.

Hi, everyone,

Hillsdale College in Michigan held their first registered ATA tournament this past Saturday, Oct. 9, in conjunction with the AIM FOR LIBERTY SHOOT. The school held a clinic at the Hillsdale College Shooting Sports Center for new shooters to try out trapshooting, as well as shooting some sporting clay targets at the 5-stand. Sponsors of the event were AcuSport Corp., GunBroker.com, Hodgdon Powder, Smith & Wesson and Winchester Ammunition. 


Jim Arnold

Long-time shooting pro and shooting coach Jim Arnold presented an overview of gun handling and emphasized gun safety. (Years ago I had some of my first training with Jim at a Sporting Clays fundraiser! He’s still as passionate and enthusiastic about the shooting sports, and he’s serious about teaching proper technique and safety.) I estimate that nearly 100 new-comers tried shooting at the traps and 5-stand. I saw a lot of smiles as the novice shootists smashed some clay targets.  


Dynamic trainer Jim Arnold

The school’s first ATA tournament had a turnout of seven squads competing in a 100-bird singles event. Michigan ATAers showed up to support the inaugural race. Winners were: A, Keith Heeg, 198; B, Martin Blashfield, 188; and C, Garret Thomsen, 194. President of the Hillsdale Shooting Club Zak Dombrowski recorded his first 50 straight. Way to go!  

Always there to help! On the right are ATAers Leslie and Larry York who worked all day with new shooters teaching them one-on-one how to break clay targets. They kept a check on range gun safety and made sure everyone smashed some clays. Thanks for all you do, guys! Thanks to all the coaches who helped at the clinic!

Hillsdale College also provided a complimentary hearty, delicious lunch for all participants.  Read more about it in the pages of Trap & Field, the official magazine of the ATA.  Let me know what’s happening at your gun club. Thanks for shooting ATA!

Hi, everyone,

It sure has been an exciting Grand. Congratulations to Clay Target Champion Patrick Stacey of Frederick, Oklahoma. Congratulations to New York’s Chris Vendel who won the Doubles Championship.   

Kudos to 17-year-old Steven Jennings (Attica, NY) for becoming the eighth qualifier in the $100,000 Grand American Challenge. He won Friday’s Kolar Arms Handicap with 100 from the 25-yard line. Wow, great shooting, Steven!

The Grand American Handicap is being contested right now. Once the champion is determined, a name will be drawn for a lucky shooter to compete as the 10th qualifier for a chance at $100,000, winner take all!

Hi, everyone,

It’s pretty busy here and really exciting! There were 31 perfect scores of 200 in the Clay Target Championship yesterday, and it was quite a shootoff. Three are left, deadlocked for the prestigious champion trophy. Tonight Patrick Stacey, Eric Munson and David Shaeffer Jr. will go to the line again to settle the tie. Who will be the champion?  Trophies already decided in the Clay Target with scores of 200 include Rachel Hopkins, women’s and Dempsey Gottschalk, veteran. Posting 199s were Kai Kababik and Tom Buxman who ended senior sub-junior and veteran, respectively.

The Hall of Fame Silent Auction is going on right now. Wow, there are some really nice items to bid on. And it’s all for a good cause funding all the projects that the Hall of Fame oversees.  Bidding will be closed at 4 p.m. today.

Hi, everyone,

It’s been a busy Grand so far. It’s great seeing the shooters here at the Grand American.  It looks like all states and provinces are represented except British Columbia. So far we have 25 ATA members from other countries. Entry figures have been up as well, and as of Monday Aug. 9, the attendance is up nearly 6% over last year. Not bad for the heat here. Everything you’ve heard is true—it got up to maybe  100 degrees. You can imagine the variations of the temperature I’ve heard today. Regardless, it was dang hot, but not too hot for ATA competitors. There was a total of 31 perfect 200s in the Winchester AA Singles Class Championship.

Meet 13- year-old Brian Howland from Wausau, Wisconsin. He shot his first 100 in Saturday’s singles in the AIM event. He’s been shooting since he was nine and started shooting ATA just two years ago. He uses a Perazzi. He likes everything about shooting he said—from the competition to the nice people. Thanks to his parents Lynn and Theresa for their support of his favorite sport.

Opening ceremonies went well on Monday evening.  The President Gary Sherrod Handicap is underway today and the Browning Doubles Class Championship. Check back.

It’s a huge crowd coming into the Grand today.  Youth teams are also arriving for the 2010 AIM Grand Championships to be held Aug. 7-8, this Saturday and Sunday.  It’s sure to be a great turnout as more than 900 young shooters pre-registered.

August 5, 2010

The day started out with a bang! Literally. A fierce storm blew through about 5 a.m. and the wind was horrendous. It was called a mircro burst which is almost a tornado. A travel trailer was blown over on the west end by the vendor buildings (on its slideout side) and the Sparta Fire Dept. arrived in good time to get the person out. He suffered some broken ribs. The beer tent also took a beating, and the supports caved in. The town of Sparta had some damage from fallen trees and power was out all day. Fortunately, power was in good working order here at the complex and the day proceeded as usual.  We hope for some cooler temperatures.   Terry Heeg

Hi, Everyone,

I’m at the 111th Grand American World Trapshooting Tournament. It looks like a great turnout so far. ATAers have been arriving to the World Shooting & Recreational Complex. It’s going to be some hot competition the next two weeks. The weather forecast calls for warm temperatures, but hey, it’s summer in the Mississippi Valley.  Trapshooters are usually ready and prepared. The schedule started on time this morning. First was the playing of the Canadian anthem, then the Star Spangled Banner. The shooters were called to the line at 9 am. We’re off to another great tournament.


Visiting at the Trap & Field counter is
a Grand tradition to renew your sub.
Classification is the first step in registering

Hi, everyone,

It’s  “back home again” for this Hoosier-raised writer. 

It’s been a swell week here at the Indiana State Shoot. The Indiana Gun Club is spruced up to welcome every trapshooter from Indiana and across the USA and Canada! A whole lot of ATA shooting action has been going on: Congrats to Jack Curry who took the opening day singles honors with 99 and full follow-through carryover.  Curtis Lunsford struck 100 and carryover in the Event 4 Singles to take the winner’s trophy. Grand American Handicap champion Eric Shroyer blasted 99 over the field in Event 5’s yardage race to capture the top honors.

Curry went on to smash 99 in Wednesday’s Event 6 Doubles for top honors. John Voliva was high in the whole trap line with 99 in Event 8 handicap for the win. And Tank Lunsford posted 96 for the Hall of Fame Handicap victory.

Congratulations to Robert Phillips of Hanover! He carded the only resident 200 in Saturday’s Singles Championship to earn the title outright. Brandon Sullivan and Matthew Perkins turned in 198s to win sub-junior and junior crowns. Barb Rocheford posted 196 for the women’s honors. She also took the lady laurels in Events 8 and 9 handicaps, as well as the Event 10 Doubles. Way to go, Barb! Welcome back to Indiana.  Shooting continues today with the Doubles and Handicap championships underway. It looks to be a great weather day again. Watch for the story in Trap & Field.

Hi, everyone,

I’m here at the Michigan Homegrounds in Mason. I’ve been told that attendance is up over last year. The temperatures have been in the 70s and the skies are bright blue. Oh so good to see the targets! Right now the Richard Burkett Singles just started. I see a lot of out-of-staters here. Hope you can make it to Michigan. If not, just hope you can go to a trapshoot somewhere. Have a safe holiday weekend with family and friends as we celebrate our country’s independence! God bless our troops!

Hi, everyone,

I’m at the Ohio State Shoot at the Cardinal Center in Marengo. It’s been a good week so far, and the crowd is huge. Last night was the Blaser Gun Give-Away. Blaser so generously donated a Super Trap Combo. Those who shot Wednesday’s handicap and the Blaser Handicap on Thursday were eligible. Two lucky numbers were drawn: 5 and 6. Those who had scores ending in 5 or 6 got in the shootout on Friday. I was told it was about 130 contestants. They shot one per post. By round 6 it was down to four shooters, then it narrowed to two in round 7. Malachi Bluhm and Joseph Muraski each shot perfect. Round 8: Each shot perfect again. In round 9, Muraski let one fly, and the crowd moaned.  Bluhm smoked his next target to win the Blaser shootout. The crowd cheered and applauded.   

When I asked 16-year-old Malachi what he thought of his win, he said, “I don’t know. I’m in shock.” I ask him what he was thinking during the shootout. He said, “I asked myself before every target, ‘are you ready?’” And ready he was to take home the Blaser Super Trap Combo. Thank you to Rich Kaysa and everyone at Blaser USA.

Congratulations to Seth Willis who won the Blaser Handicap with 97! Kyle Hamilton and Kevin Dawson topped Friday’s Rio Handicap with 97s and ended winner and runnerup, respectively. Clyde Findley captured the Class Doubles with 100!

KayLynn Hamilton Bornman was high lady with 197 and a perfect round of overtime. Stephen Todak was junior champion with 198. Philip Criado and Robert Lefever were vet and senior vet winners with 199 and 198, respectively.

Congratulations to J.T. Spangler. This guy is on a roll! He won the PA handicap championship with 97 and an extra round of shootoffs. Other residents carding 97s were Guy D. Fox, Raymond Stahl, Dennis Cacciola Sr. and Junior Dylan Darhower.  Ray won runnerup; Dylan was junior.
