Jan 2017 Newsletter

 

TEXAS SPORTING CLAYS ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER
January 2017

VOTE - - - VOTE - - - VOTE

  • YOUR help is needed. George is busy. It's your Sport - your ideas - your support that makes the difference!

  • The December TSCA Ballot; and, separately, the December Newsletter were seemingly lost in Holiday Celebrations.

  • Both will be re-sent to YOU next week.

  • Please VOTE as less than 141 VOTED thus far, less than the attendance at many shoots. If you have already voted, YOU need not VOTE again. Your preference has been recorded.

  • YOUR IDEAS and PICs will make a difference - See December Newsletter on txclays.com, Latest News. - and, action.

  • This is an abbreviated Newsletter. Nonetheless, TSCA wants to leave you with two thoughts -

o Include smaller clubs in your area in planning your 2017 shoot
schedule. Don't let their size or location lessen your interest. For example,
Rose City Flying Clays (Tyler) offers unmatched natural topography; while Ellis County Sportman's Club (Dallas) will test TX best competitors 'shot planning' skills. We'll feature larger and smaller clubs throughout the State in 2017.

o Ever wondered about TX membership, clubs, registered targets. See chart below. Your State is the envy of many.

There was membership growth even during the 2015 monsoon rains, floods. There was/is an approximate 25% growth in total (40) clubs throwing sporting clays in 2016/17. The balance of clubs are skeet, industry service/vendor, etc. oriented.
