On behalf of the ASTF Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to notify you that you have earned a place on the 2021 Arkansas State Trapshooting Team. Congratulations! The board and I are very proud of you. This placement is based on a pre-defined target requirement and your 2020 year-end composite average, as provided to us by the ATA. Your shooting excellence, particularly in this crazy Covid-19 year, prevailed over many fine shooters. In addition, this prestigious distinction inherently makes you a role model to aspiring shooters. May you humbly embrace your achievement and gain great pleasure in paying your success forward.

Arkansas has been represented well outside of the state. We are really proud of how these young shooters have shown up and showed out. Congratulations to Luke Yagos, Jayden Dalton, Aidan Master, Chet Orick, Katie Pryor, Jasa Reed, Darin Reed, and Wren Washburn for bringing home some hardware from the Southwestern Grand American. A special shout out to Luke Yagos for being the Handicap Champion and Aidan Master for being the Doubles Champion.
Congratulations to Julie Newsom, Logan Applegate, Landon Chandler, Katie Pryor, and Kayla Workman for bringing home some hardware from the Florida State Shoot. A special shout out to Landon Chandler for being the non-resident Singles Champ and to Julie Newsom for being the non-resident Lady 1 Handicap champion.
Gun clubs around the state have had great turn outs. You can tell trapshooting is in full swing in Arkansas. I want to say congratulations to Kaden Hurst for being the Handicap champ at the Bluerock Gun Club shoot on 4/25.
Special achievement awards go out to Sambo Oswalt for his 25K singles attainment and to Chandler Brown for his 50K singles attainment. Congratulations to both of you.
As most of you know; the Grand American will be back in Sparta, IL this year. I can’t wait. If you haven’t had a chance to attend; you should definitely put it on your list of must go to shoots.
By the time you read this, our 2021 state shoot will be in the books. A big thank you to all who came and participated. I am already looking forward to 2022! As always, I am scared that I have left someone out. If so, you can always contact me. I look forward to hearing everyone’s accomplishments.
