    Ryan Hadden of the United States Army Marksmanship Unit captured the 2013 Krieghoff-Haldeman Cup Championship in Olympic Trap this past weekend at the Keystone Shooting Park range near Dalmatia, Pennsylvania. 2011 Krieghoff-Haldeman Cup Champion and 2012 Silver Medalist, Drew Shaw of Sarnia, Canada garnered the Silver Medal, while Hadden's fellow team member and 2012 defending Krieghoff-Haldeman Cup Champion Shane Herman took home the Bronze Medal back to Fort Benning.


    The three USAMU shooters (Seth Inman, Ryan Hadden & Shane Herman) were all tied after the regulation rounds, but the new ISSF finals procedures provided for some unexpected changes in those going onto the medal rounds. Four shooter were tied at the end of the semi-finals, so a sudden death shoot-off was conducted to determine the Bronze Medal round competitors and those going on to compete for the Gold and Silver. Shane Herman and Paul Shaw went head to head for the Bronze with Herman outlasting Shaw to capture his second consecutive Krieghoff Cup medal. Ryan Hadden and Drew Shaw dueled for the Gold & Silver, but the three time World Cup Gold Medalist showed his colors and pushed through to capture his first Krieghoff Cup medal. Drew Shaw proudly walked away with (3) consecutive Krieghoff Cup medal winning performances to add to his resume'.


    U.S. National Team Member, Kayle Browning of Little Rock, Arkansas won the Women's Gold Medal, followed by Ann Jardin of Mexico, New York with the Silver and Alicia Marinache of Burlington, Canada taking the Bronze. The Senior Gold Medal went to Paul Shaw of Toronto, Canada, with Donald Koons of Lebanon, Pennsylvania winning the Silver and Charles Wentzel of Cincinnati, Ohio walking off with the Bronze on his 73rd birthday. It was an all Pennsylvania show in the Junior division with 11 year old Lance Thompson of Carlisle taking home the Gold, followed by his KSP teammate Donovan Barry of Mount Joy with the Silver and Dylan Craft of Muncy Valley garnering the Bronze.


    Other class winners were USAMU's Seth Inman in Class "A", John Wolfington of Wilmington, Delaware in Class "B", Primo Scapin of Montreal, Canada with Class "C" honors and Dylan Craft in Class "D".


    Dieter Krieghoff of Krieghoff International, Inc. presented the awards to the victors and posed for photos with the semi-finalists and K-Gun competitors at this years event. We are extremely proud to be affiliated with Krieghoff International and Mr. Krieghoff expressed his appreciation for our efforts in putting on a first class event to honor their product line and also our fallen friend and 1976 Olympic Gold Medalist, Donald Haldeman of Souderton, Pennsylvania. Don was the last person from the United States to win a Gold Medal in Men's Trap at either the Olympics or World Championships with his K-32. We named our field after Don and we are proud to hang a rememberance photo of Don in our club house, which was donated by our dear friend Primo Scapin of Montreal, Canada.


    The Skeet portion fo the Krieghoff-Haldeman Cup will be hosted this coming weekend with the entire Skeet team from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in attendance. We welcome everybody to come and give our Olympic Skeet field a try in the future. It's a real challenge!!!

    Charlie,


    Yes, I spoke with both Corey Cogdell and Brad Beckmann and it was going to be too tight for them to make our event, rest and then head to Peru. We had no choice but to schedule the event when we did due to other calendar conflicts as well as coordinating with Krieghoff's calendar. There aren't enough weeks in the year any longer!!! The event was still nearly sold out and we really only lost a very few competitors due to the Peru trip.


    As a point of interest, the three AMU athletes all tied with 190 x 200, which is only 2 targets off the current range record. Earlier this summer we started to offer cash rewards for outstanding performances. Brad Beckmann of St Louis shot a 191 x 200 in the Perazzi USA Grand Prix and Shane Herman followed right back in the next event (Eurotarget Grand Prix) to post a 192 x 200. We will award $200 for a new range record, $100 for a 100 straight and $600 for a 200 straight. KSP is a great range and throws legal targets. The Eurotargets are fantastic and break easily, while still providing our range with unmatched reliability. Our patrons can attest to the fact that we only had (2) no-birds during the entire event and we experienced not even one no-bird in the three days of training before the event. We converted over to Eurotarget on May 31st and since that time we've thrown 100,000 targets with a total of (40) no-birds. That's a 0.04% breakage rate, while the scores increased by as much as 10% over the same period. That's impressive!!!! Hell, we broke more targets by dropping them while loading the machines then our Mattarelli's did. Needless to say, We're extremely pleased with our Mattarelli/Eurotarget marriage and we look forward to a long relationship with both. Attached are photos of what 182,100 targets (Container Load) looks like in our bunker/tunnel.

    Charlie,


    I saw your second post and I'm not sure why you took it down, but we definitely appreciated your comments. We're working extremely hard to make a positive difference for the sport and especially the athletes. I don't do facebook or twitter, but I was forwarded the following tweet that Kayle Browning put on her account yesterday:


    This might be my new favorite place to shoot! ?? I'm in love! #PA#KeystoneShootingPark#KrieghoffCup


    We've received many congratulations from our sponsors and they're all extremely pleased with KSP and our promotional efforts. We have several additional initiatives in the works so standby for more announcements. Our latest additions were installed last month as we put up our new Elfipa Electronic Field Score Board, which now ties into our central computer and allows the athletes and spectators to have instant public results of the shooting in progress. We also installed a new wireless remote control system for our skeet and trap fields, which makes training much more care free and hands free. Gone are the days of the dreaded skeet cord and needing to have a buddy to pull targets for you. Now you can train by yourself with our system and come and go as you please.


    We'll have our 2014 schedule of events ready for the public by the end of November or early December, so please visit our website on a regular basis to see what's new at KSP. Below are photos of our new score board taken during this weekend's event.

    Great write-up Allen and yet another great shoot! You have to hand it to Allen and all of the sponsors at Keystone for giving bunker shooters a great facility to train and compete. I look forward to competing in the Keystone club championships on October 13th.

    Pictures from the shoot are posted on the GunOrange blog at the address above.

    Kayle Browning dropped by the club with her Dad this weekend to take Open Ladies in our first CTC-PTO at the Nashville Gun Club.

    Tommy Lynn was quickly drafted and put to work to help out with our shoot. It went well.

    I shot the event as a Senior, and I can tell you, those kids can shoot.

    The Board of Directors of Chubb International Shooting Sports, Inc. are proud to announce that Dustan Taylor of Staley, North Carolina was crowned the 2013 Krieghoff-Haldeman Cup Champion and Gold Medalist in Olympic Skeet this past weekend at our Keystone Shooting Park facility. Next month, Dustan will be headed off to U.S. Army Basic Training and after advanced training he'll be assigned to the United States Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Georgia to join a proud tradition and legacy that is the USAMU.


    The Silver Medal went to Dustan's future USAMU Teammate, Hayden Stewart originally from Tennessee. The Bronze Medal was won by 14 year old Baylor Brooks of Stephensville, Texas. USAMU's Mark Weeks set the new range record with a 193 x 200 in the qualification rounds, but faltered in the new ISSF finals procedures and failed to qualify for the medal rounds. He ultimately was awarded the Class "A" Gold Medal, while Class "B" Gold went to Sergey Parfenov from Brooklyn, New York.


    In the Junior division, Devin Ford from Cortlandt Manor, New York was the Gold Medalist, while Aurora Keen from Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania garnered the Silver and Patrick Norton from Finksburg, Maryland took home the Bronze. This now concludes the major events portion of our 2013 season and we will announce our schedule for 2014 by the end of November or early December, so please watch TS.com and our website for those announcements. Congratulations to all of the 2013 Champions. WELL DONE!!!!!

    Dear Allen

    It is amazing the way these kids are shooting. I look forward to see who keeps collecting hardware and precious metal in the upcoming shoots.

    Your amazing Shooting Club is an inspiration to all of us. Keep up the good work.

    John,


    Thanks a lot!!! What you've seen so far is only the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot more planned and already in the works than anyone realizes. Don't forget that KSP organized, conducted and sponsored our athletes on (4) European and (3) Canadian training trips within the last 24 months. In total, those trips garnered our athletes more than a dozen individual international medals and numerous other top 10 finishes. The experience and confidence gained by our athletes on these trips is enormous and as seen......very fruitful to boot. KSP was designed as a stepping stone training facility for our athletes to gain real life experience as to what they'll face in international competitions abroad. Mark Weeks said it best this past weekend when he commented that if anyone wants to truly prepare for international competitions than KSP is the best venue in the nation to do so.


    We already have two more European training trips planned over the next 11 months and these are all centered around our "Road to Rio" campaign that we started when we opened our doors on May 1, 2011. We're motivated, we have a plan and we're very focused. We're just not planning for Rio in 2016, but even well beyond the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. This is who we are and what we do. Take a look at sign that hangs on the front of our ranges kiosk door and you'll get a sense of that we're serious about our mission and that mediocrity is not part of our vocabulary.

    Gene,


    Thanks for the very kind words. KSP was meant to be a very special place by design. Building another Olympic shotgun sports facility along the lines of the status quo was not acceptable to us. Likewise, giving the promotional and marketing efforts a kiss and a prayer was obviously not going to excite the masses and instill an eager want in them to give our sport and venue a try. Without differentiating ourselves from our comtemporaries would only serve to render lack luster results in our goal set. The success that we've enjoyed has been partly due to the first class venue that we've built and continue to develop, however....the lions share of our success has come from the acquiring of our first class sponsors, organization of our events and the marketing program that we've laid out over the last few years. Some believe that the the hard work is done when they finish construction, when in fact that's when the REALLY hard work begins and that's where many well intentioned initiatives falter. Keeping your foot on the gas pedal is exhausting and without a well laid out plan, coupled with the passion of a small group of dedicated and experienced visionaries will render only mediocre results. At this point, we seen enough of that and we felt it was time to set the bar higher for the benefit of the athletes and the United States.


    The saddest part of this experience has been watching the reactions and listening to the comments of those narrow minded people that are waiting to cheer for your failure. They question the need for change, while failing to see that they've dug themselves into a large hole. If you find yourself in a hole, then stop digging. Do something different and change the variables. You have to have the courage to accept your programs short comings and strike out on a new path. Yes, the results are not guaranteed to be any better, but sitting back and doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is by definition the epedimy of insanity. We've chosen to change the variables and at this point, there's no doubt that what we've done has really struck a positive cord with the athletes and true friends of our sports, which are those that really matter the most, while truly confounding those that only take from it and jeer from the sidelines. We gain great joy at the prospect of making a positive difference for our beloved sports, but I will admit that confounding our critics does bring us joy as well.


    Gene, I hope you can come down to Tucson in a couple weeks for the Fall Selection Match (October 4-7) as I'd like the opportunity to meet you.


    Best Regards,
