Board of Directors Corner
After the Michigan Shoot Programs and the Great Lakes Grand Programs were printed, White Flyer increased the cost of their clay targets by about $1.35 per box. This increase was needed by White Flyer to cover the increased cost of pitch which makes up most of the material in clay targets. The recent tariffs on imported Aluminum caused US based Aluminum producers to greatly ramp up production. Pitch is required to make Aluminum so demand for pitch went up and the pitch supply stayed the same. The Law of Supply and Demand required the price of pitch to go up! White Flyer has a letter posted on the main page of the ATA website with more information.
In response to the unexpected target price increase, The MTA Board of Directors has added a $1.00 per hundred surcharge on all targets at the Spring Team Shoot, the Great Lakes Grand, the Michigan State Shoot, and the Fall Team Shoot. For example, Events 1, 2, and 3 at the Spring Team Shoot will each cost $32.00, not $31.00 and Event 4, the Spring Championship Singles, (200 targets) will cost $64.00, not $62.00.
Practice will increase from $5.00 per box of shells to $5.50 per box.
No one likes a price increase. The MTA throws a million targets a year and losing a small amount of money on each one is not something that any shooter should accept as good for the future of our sport.
The MTA is proud to announce that we will be hosting the
inaugural USA High School Clay Target League
National Trap Championship July 12-15.
