    Joseph Winburn, 20.5 yard shooter from Kentucky. Joseph has been shooting for less than a year.

    The Grand American is open to all, rookies and skilled shooters. All your need to have is the entry fee and an ATA membership. That is why it's called the Grand American, anyone can win in any event and be a Grand American Championship.

    Joseph's win is a perfect example in our sport. His win is what and why the Grand American is so important to our sport.

    I refereed Joseph's shoot-off. I can tell you he is a true rookie, his first time to the GA and didn't really know what was before him, except he needed to break 25-more targets. He was poised and in the middle of 25 targets. When he finished we moved to the back and we waited. The others broke 24 or less and Joseph was not aware what this moment meant.

    Congratulations to Joseph the 2013 GRAND AMERICAN Handicap Champion and congratulations to all the 2013 GA Champions, no matter where your from or how long you have been shooting. The Grand American is open to all regardless of your past accomplishments.

    Richard. All you needed to say was the state he was from.We could have filled in the rest of the blanks.

    Congrats Joe.

    Puts me in mind of Mark Wade's win some year back from similar yardage.

    The legend of the 'rookie farm boy' stopping by to shoot and winning the Grand American lives on.

    Congratulations and grand shooting! 'The kind of stuff that dreams are made of :)'

    Was referring to a story told to me by a ninety year old about a farm boy who stopped to shoot for the heck of it, went to town trapshooting all he wanted and had no idea what the Grand was and ended up winning the Grand. Don't know what year and don't have a name. It was just a trapshooter's legend. Maybe someone here has the rest of the story.

    From the way the shooter told the story, it was in the twenties or thirties maybe?

    Great Job Joseph Winburn. This gentleman had only shot 1500 Handicap targets and had a couple of 95's and one 96 for a half yard at Central Ky. gun club for absolutely nothing ! Highest singles score was a lone 99 out of about a 1000 targets.

    Ollie go crawl back under your rock your not taking this young mans gory away with your negative crap !

    Richard,

    Did you stand up and ask that the EC be accountable for their actions on a couple of pending problems, or did you sit on your hands again ..?


    Congratulations to the newest Grand American Champion, obviously a well deserved conclusion to the week ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    The Infamous 20.5 yardage marker strikes again. Only goes to show you, stay close
    to the front to claim a prize. Amazing how this ATA handicap system can equalize
    the competition year after year. If the Lord did not want them sheared, he would
    not have made them sheep. Still, all and all, a 99 is a noteworthy score indeed.

    Thank goodness the lad didn't win it fro the 18. If he had, this thread would be 100+ entries long by now.

    Thank you Mr. Luckett for your comments, sounds as though you enjoyed it. Congratulations to the winner, no matter the yardage there'd be comments from someone on this forum;) What's the saying, "You can't please them all" LOL

    okay guys this is about crowning a new champion and congratulating him. What kind of example does this show to a young new champion. Take your other bunch of BS on another thread. Some of you make me feel ashamed to be a trapshooter, you wonder why our sport is declining. Andy

    Thunder,

    I'm with you these people only have negative things to say about the KY short yardage shooters because they are jealous. Congratulations to Joseph for a great shooting and a awesome shoot off.
