    Looking at the scores, it seems that Daro Handy can still shoot - Handicap Champion, HOA Champion, Singles Senior Vet Champion.

    The Oregon State ATA tried a novel approach of hosting a "zone" style State Shoot between two locations. While we did prove that it is possible to perform such a shoot, there are some drawbacks. First of all is just the difference in atmosphere - not having everyone together just doesn't have the same feel. We had a little technical difficulty hosting the State meeting, but we were able to accomplish the task. Trophy presentation is the most challenging of all with trophies split and some not available to winners at their shooting site. But it was certainly a credible idea and worth a try in our state that just can't seem to get everyone to agree or participate at a single location. Oregon probably give out the most trophies of any state or province and is a great place to maximize all-american points at a small shoot.

    Both Medford and LaGrande did a very fine job of hosting the event. Great scores at each club, but Daro had a career weekend breaking a 100 in the handicap Sat and 99 on Sunday. He won trophies in every event I believe. Dave Carter steps out of a few years break from shooting and wins the doubles Championship with a 99. Robert Minetti with perfect 200 in singles. Stuart Welton posted his second perfect singles and doubles back to back and went 25-25-23-25 in the final handicap in LaGrande for a 398 - very close to the legendary 400. David Kelly also posted 398 in the HAA in Medford with 99 in doubles and 99 in handicap. All the championships were won in Medford, but scores were pretty close in LaGrande. I don't think one can point out a significant difference in average scores between the two locations.

    The OSATA BOD will meet this winter to discuss the shoot and make determinations for the 2014 shoot. Thank you to everyone who participated and assisted with this tournament. Special thanks to David VanElgort for hosting the scores and trophies and posting the information on this site. If anyone has suggestions or commnents, please send them to me via PM or email (jadams@eotnet.net).
