In 2014, the MTA Board of Directors reinstated the MTA Hall of Fame Board of Directors to fulfill the objectives of the MTA Hall of Fame: Give recognition to Michigan individuals who have distinguished themselves in registered trapshooting competitions or have contributed outstanding work in the promotion, administration, management, improvement, and growth of registered trapshooting, and to collect and maintain historical artifacts and material pertaining to Michigan Trapshooting, which will be available to the public.
The Hall of Fame Board – Sally Telfer, Carl Chadwell, Richard Jenson, and Mike Wilson – have been working diligently, with the MTA Board, and is excited to report some major changes coming in 2017 to the MTA Hall of Fame.
The HOF BOD is planning annual HOF celebrations, to honor current and past HOF inductees. Current and past inductees and their families are invited to attend the yearly reunions held at the Michigan State Shoot. Everyone watch for future announcements.
As expected, there is a cost to all of these improvements. The HOF BOD is planning on fundraising and sponsorship activities for the coming year. Please consider supporting our Hall of Fame activities, either financially or by volunteering your help. For more information, or to make donations to the Michigan Trapshooting Hall of Fame, contact Michigan Trapshooting Board of Directors or Michigan Trapshooting Hall of Fame Board. You may also contact Sally Telfer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-358-7767.
