Ken Smith – 2013

Ken Smith
Ken is always a competitor who loves to shoot and is humble when asked about his shooting accomplishments. Ken has mentored many shooters from the new to the more seasoned who are looking to improve their shooting experience. When asked to share his thoughts, experiences, and philosophies about shooting, Ken is quick to point out that a person needs to stay focused, have fun and that “it costs less to break a target than to miss it.” Ken has always been a volunteer, willing to do any task, from serving as an MTA Hall of Fame committee member, target setting, scoring, to kitchen help. Ken always brings great enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Ken is most proud that he has had the good fortune to compete against and with his son, Scott. They have won 7 Parent/Child awards. Ken has a singles long run record of 752 straight and has won over 70 trophies when competing in events with All-American recognition.
