    Super Senior Vets

    I see in Sept. T/F that Florida is starting a new category for Senior vets 75 and older. It is about time some club is getting this started. A lot of these shooters have shot at a lot of targets over the years, I, myself over 275000. I think two Lewis class 60/40 would also be good. I thank the F.T.A. and Tom White for working on this new category.

    I also see in the Aug. T/F our A.T.A. President, Neil Winston will be presenting in the near future, some additional dialog pertaining to this program application. I hope Mr. Winston and the Executive Committee can come together on this issue.

    PITA already has the Elder Class for shooters who are over 75.

    Good idea, then I won't have to compete with kids like Mushy or Possum!

    Jerry I hope it works but I don't see universal acceptance. Are they doing it for all events or just the championship events?

    I would like to say that we all will be there someday(at least we hope) and it might just suprise you how many there are out there that quit shooting because when you get a little older some things slow down. Now we all would like to win and if you have a 50% chance to do that most will try, however if that gets reduced to 10% because your 75 or so you will just quit trying...................BUT if you are shooting with the others that have the same eyesight and all other things that you have you just might go to the club and give it a try and you dont have to live in fl. or az to be a 75year old trapshooter maybe there are alot more than most think..........

    P.S. I would like to thank the F.T.A board for approving this for our state and hope more states get on board.....THEN MAYBE just MAYBE the A.T.A. will notice and that would be nice.
