Hello Shooters

Spring Championship scores have been posted to the FTA web site for your viewing pleasure.

Our Secretary has created an FTA page on Facebook and is posting information there from time to time. As a result, thirteen new email address have been generated for our email list. Good job Dee Dee.

The Southern Zone shoot is just around the corner, 18-21 July 19 and will be hosted by the Silver Dollar. Hope to see you there! Visit our web site for program information.

President Ted is in the planning stage of our Grand Picnic. The Pavilion has been reserved for the 6th of August; time is set for 5ish. The FTA will provide the burgers, dogs buns and condiments. We ask that if possible, bring something you like to share with others. Also, anyone wanting to assist in the execution of the cookout please contact President Ted. As in the past all are encouraged to check in the events center for updates. This is where time and date for the State picture will be posted.

Congratulations are in order for our own Ruth Flayderman and daughter Paula, as they have been traveling the “Shoot” circuit and bringing in the Trophies!  Check the FTA Facebook page for further details.

Florida has been well represented in the Buckeye Open and Pennsylvania State Shoots. Florida also supported Alabama and South Carolina State Shoots. (Some of the shoot scores can be located on RJ Stuart.com.)

Lady II Shooter Sarah Jacobs received her ATA Award for 50,000 handicap targets registered. As most know, I have the privilege of driving her to shoots!

Anyone or FTA Club wanting to share pictures or shoot related information please send it to us for posting.

Hello Shooters!

As mentioned by Jake, we have a Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/floridatrapshooters/

From the Florida ATA Delegate:

Greetings shooters,

I hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start. Things are relatively quiet here in the Sunshine State, but I know things are going full speed ahead elsewhere with many other state shoots underway or just on the horizon. I know Florida is being well represented out there, which brings me to my point: If any Florida residents win trophies in other states, please feel free to drop me an email so I can get you recognized in my Trap and Field column. Also, if anyone has any other information they would they would like me to share, please feel free to contact me but, keep in mind that the deadline for the article is 2 months prior to the day it will be published. My email address is TRH.trap@gmail.com. Until then, shoot straight!
