Welcome to the Michigan Trapshooting Association. Located in Mason, Michigan 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. The MTA hosts 4 major trap shoots per year with a facility that includes 44 trap fields, over 150 campsites, and over 300 acres of gorgeous Michigan landscape. The MTA also hosts A.I.M., S.C.T.P., & High School events including State and Regional Competitions. MAP

Board of Directors Corner
Your Board of Directors met on March 1, 2018 and March 14, 2018. The next meeting is scheduled for after the MTA Work Day on April 21.
The Board met on March 14 to discuss clay target prices. The vendor that the Board had selected in our March 1 meeting informed us on March 14 that his price would increase more than 13% from what he bid. This, of course, was very significant and disappointing as we buy and throw about 1,000,000 targets a year. In response, the Board has decided to get new bids on targets. The pricing of shoots and practice will need to be looked at once we have new bids for the targets we need. Loosing a little bit of money on each target we throw and hoping to make it up on volume is not a good idea!
Electrical work to rebuild and rewire the pedestals in the vendor area is underway. The pedestals needed physical replacement and circuit redesign. This work was required to comply with the National Electrical Code.
The programs for the shoots at the MTA are complete and have been mailed. I haven’t received my Great Lakes Grand program yet, but it’s available on the MTA & ATA website.
Registered shooting at local trap clubs has restarted. There are many shoots in March and April before our Spring Team event in Mason on May 3-6. Check your “Schedule of Invitational Events“ booklet, Trap & Field Magazine, or the ATA website for a club shoot near you.
