TSCA MAY NEWSLETTER
On behalf of the TSCA Board, I would like to congratulate all the winners of the 2019 Texas State Championship and to thank all the shooters who participated in our State Championship. We had great weather (at least for the most part), we had great targets, and we had great participation. In fact, we set a record (relative to state shoots nationwide) in shooter participation with a total of 891 shooters. Based on member feedback, the Championship shoot was a great success receiving high accolades across all events and activities. Without you, the shooter, the Texas State Championship could never happen, so again we express our sincere appreciation.
A major “thank you” goes out to our Title Sponsor CZ-USA and Dan Wesson for providing an amazing experience for our Texas and Out-of-State Shooters. Without their support, the 2019 Texas State Championship would not have been the success it was.
Secondly, a big “thank you” goes to a long-time sponsor, Zoli, for their continued support of our Hall of Fame banquet. They provided a $15,000 custom built Zoli shotgun which was raffled off with the proceeds supporting our banquet.
And finally, RIO Ammunition, another long-time sponsor, provided 100 flats of ammo which was won by various participants across the shoot. Many thanks to RIO.
This year's Hall of Fame Banquet was very well attended. A very special thanks and congratulations to the 4 (four) Hall of Fame inductees for all you each do in support of the sport of sporting clays here in Texas. Service Award went toGlynne Moseley and Jeff Foster; and the Shooter’s Awardwent to Kirk Cleere and Byron Justice.
We would be remiss if we failed to shout out “thank you” to the National Shooting Complex for their part in making the 2019 Texas State Championship a success. The entire NSC staff, from registration to event planners to trappers to target setters and to field support staff…..Thank You!
The TSCA Board continus to focus on the quality and continued growth of the Texas State Championship Shoot for its members. The 2020 Texas State Championship will be hosted by Fossil Pointe with the date to be announced later.
