WV's Trapshooting History NEW 1905 - 1909 Just Added

   I've added the 1905 - 1909 State shoots under the History tab at the top of the page. The scans are courtesy of Kenny Ray Estes who has sent the WVATA volumes about its history. It appears that the weather tormented early trapshooters as well. I also see that somethings never change, it was included in the story that in 1907 the targets were hard as some were found with 6 holes in them and not broken! A another quote for the current WVATA officials "This is simply a matter of form and the only way to change officers is to have one of them leave this world"

In 1906 they threw 60,000 targets over three days!

They're a great read and I'm grateful to Kenny Ray for the reports and of his dedication to preserving and sharing the history of Trapshooting.
