Happy Easter Everyone!
May you all feel the Joy and Blessings of the occasion.
I am very happy to report that our 2023 State Shoot was a HUGE success! We were blessed with dry weather, an increase in attendance, and increase in total targets thrown! Yahoo, who would have thought that by reducing the events on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we would have seen such results?
As you may know, we ventured back into the Shirt and Hat sales arena in order to generate additional funds for our General Fund, we sold all our hats and shirts! Also of mention was a donation of six flats of Ammunition for raffle. We were successful in raffling off all six flats. Special thanks to Leo Richards for the generous donation. Of special note: the Hall of Fame Committee 50/50 raffle topped the chart at $2846.00. That’s $1423.00 to the winner, way to go guys and Gals!
Our Trophy Committee tested a new Voucher System for Trophy awards Wednesday thru Friday, the system was very well accepted. You will see the system used again next year.
None of our success would have been possible without those of you who volunteered thru-out the entire span of the tournament. The amount of help was wonderful and greatly appreciated by your FTA Board and the Silver Dollar staff. To all who gave their time Classifying, serving as referees at shoot-offs, assisting at the trophy counter, selling hats and Tee Shirts and assisting with the FTA/Silver Dollar free Hot Dog giveaway Friday and Saturday, THANK YOU!! You are appreciated!
Next is our Spring Championship 5-7 May 2023 at the Silver Dollar. The Shoot Program will be posted to our web-site NLT 12 Apr 2023. I will also make a blast here.
Our next FTA Business meeting will be held 6 May 2023 in the SD Club house as soon as shoot-offs are complete. I have a deadline of 21 April 2023 to post the Agenda to our board members. Should you have business you would like the board members to address, please provide it to your Zone Director, Club Representative or me for inclusion on the agenda.
Again, THANK YOU to all who gave their time to make our 2023 State Shoot a Success.
Your humble servant; Jake Jacobs, FTA President
