Welcome to the Michigan Trapshooting Association. Located in the heart of the beautiful Great Lakes State, the MTA home grounds are easily accessible on a major highway, with restaurants, motels, airports, stores, and a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities nearby. MAP
The MTA Board of Directors would like to say Thank You to all of the Shooters, families, vendors, and volunteers that came to the 2017 Spring Team Shoot. The weather gave us some tough conditions to overcome. We had a total of 625 shooters for the Team Event on Sunday, up about 100 shooters from 2016. Overall, the total shoot was down 600 targets from 2016.
We hope to see you all at the 2017 Great Lakes Grand!
Board of Directors Corner
Your Board of Directors met on March 23 and will meet again after Work Day on April 22.
There have been some real problems at the US Post Office with the MTA Shoot Programs. The printer sent them to the Post Office on March 6 and they got out of the Post Office the week of April 3 after a Postal Inspector got involved in response to our publisher’s complaint which in turn was in response to our complaint. I hope everyone has them now.
The tile floor in the cafeteria has been removed. This was a requirement of the insurance carrier as the old tile was coming up and creating a tripping hazard. While it won’t be done for the Spring Team Shoot, a new epoxy floor coating is planned to be in place for the Great Lakes Grand.
The exhaust hood over the stove and fryer will have the code required fire suppression system installed before the Spring Team Shoot.
Krieghoff is coming to the Great Lakes Grand. A factory gunsmith is coming and their Michigan shotgun seller has promised demo guns. With a Krieghoff factory rep at Mason for the first time in quite a while, it might be a good time to get that old K-32 or K-80 an annual “tune up” right here at Mason.
The MTA has recently received several generous donations. Thanks to those who have helped us!!
