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
It takes many people, paid and volunteers, to carry out a successful Trap Shoot. The MTA Board of Directors send a grateful “Thank You” to everyone who contributed and helped with the MTA shoots over the past years. You are all Champions of Michigan Trapshooting.

Your MTA Board of Directors met on December 10, 2016.
We have changed insurance carriers for the second year in a row. The new company does not require the signed waivers which were annoying to shooters and troublesome for those of us in Classification last year.
If we understand the new change to the ATA rules right, it looks like the Spring and Fall Team Shoots will be large enough to have All-American points awarded.
The Schedule of Invitational Events booklets have been mailed. They are yellow for the 2017 calendar year. If you look at the cover of this booklet, you will see an added day (Thursday) for the Spring and Fall Team Shoots and another preliminary day, Tuesday May 23, for the Great Lakes Grand. For each of these added days, we are planning a program of 100 Singles, 100 ‘caps, and 50 pair of doubles.
The State Shoots booklet covering the programs for the Team Shoots and the State Shoot at Mason is expected to be ready to mail in late January. The Great Lakes Grand shoot program booklet is mailed out by the ATA. Keith and Terry Heeg, who are helping us by editing and composing this booklet have advised that it will be ready to get to the printer on time.
Our next Board meeting is January 17, 2017
We wish all good health and good shooting in 2017!
