The Michigan Trapshooting Association Hall of Fame and Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and present the history of trapshooting in Michigan; to memorialize the sport of trapshooting in Michigan; and to cultivate among its audience an awareness and appreciation of the past history of trapshooting in Michigan.
The Michigan Trapshooting Association Hall of Fame and Museum serves as an educational resource of the Michigan Trapshooting Association and accomplishes its mission by:
– Giving recognition to Michigan individuals, living and deceased, who over the years, have distinguished themselves in registered trapshooting competitions by winning events at State, Zone, Satellite Grand and Grand American levels;
– Recognizing those Michigan individuals, living or deceased, who have contributed outstanding work in the promotion, administration, management, improvement, and growth of registered trapshooting;
– Collecting and maintaining historic artifacts and materials pertaining to Michigan trapshooting, which will be available to the shooting population, general public, and future generations of both.
HOF Inductees: No inductions were held in 2020 due to the cancellation of our state shoot. Larry Telfer and Sally Telfer will be inducted at the 2021 State Shoot. Larry and Sally have each won numerous shooting awards and have given their time in support of the MTA and Michigan Trapshooting. All are invited to attend the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, July 3, 2021.
MTA Hall of Fame Scholarships: Three scholarships will be awarded in 2021 to worthy applicants – Skylar Clark, Ava Larson, and Jackson Sokel. The scholarship presentation will be held on Saturday, July 3 in conjunction with the State Team presentation.
The MTA Hall of Fame and Museum activities would not be possible without the generous donations and support from trapshooters and volunteers who help with events. Thank you for all your support!
