    From your ISTA President and Board of Directors

    At a video conference meeting the morning of May 9, 2020, we discussed the upcoming 144th Illinois State Trapshoot which was scheduled for this June.
    Because of the conditions and restrictions in our State, we have decided, along with the management of Brittany Shooting Park, to reschedule the 144th Illinois State Trapshoot.

    We are all concerned about the safety and health of our members, visitors and attendees and the conditions facing our country.

    Therefore, a decision has been made to that the 144th Illinois State Trapshoot will be held from July 27th to August 2, 2020.
    Additionally, the Board has also scheduled another video conference meeting on June 20th, where we hope to have a better understanding of the situation and the challenges we may be facing.


    The board of directors unanimously decided to waive all target requirements for all Illinois Zone shoots and the State shoot if these are all able to be held.


    From all of us, may you and your families stay safe during these times and we hope to see everyone when shooting resumes. Please support your local trap clubs as they open.

    My last state shoot was 8 years ago but it was one of the most enjoyable of all the many shoots I have attended.

    The ATA central zone is July 31-Aug 2nd. Will this be shot concurrently with the state shoot or is this yet to be determined?
    Thank you.

    We are still considering whether to have them concurrently at Brittany or if the State shoot will be held alone. A lot will depend on the help available during the shoot, and management being able to figure out trophies if run concurrently.

    I can see one obvious PLUS
    to these dates...
    Anyone driving to the Grand could start early and shoot both tournaments!

    That was one of the considerations for rescheduling the shoot. Hopefully, everyone who needs a little practice can stop by and compete at our State shoot on their way to the Grand.
