Mary Lou Kollar – 2007

Mary Lou Kollar
Mary Lou became a member of the ATA in 1966, and a Life member in 1973. She joined the MTA as a life member in 1979. Mary Lou has always been devoted to helping trap shooting and trap shooters. She assisted in the operations of the Jackson County Sportsman’s Club for several years and she assisted with the building of the MTA home grounds in Mason, Michigan. She was always there to help out in the spring getting everything ready for the new shooting season. She would always lend a hand in the training of the trap help, making sure they understood the shooting rules and regulations. She would take the time to listen and try to help shooters out when they were having difficulties. Even after eye problems prevented her from shooting any longer, people still asked her advice. She encouraged everyone, young and old alike, to just keep practicing and “just stick with it.”
Mary Lou shot on several winning teams at the Industrial Shoot/Fall Team Shoot.
Whether it was pulling, scoring, signing up shooters, or whatever else related to shooting, Mary Lou was always there to lend a hand.

To date Mary Lou has registered 45,700 singles targets, 60,825 handicap targets, and 15, 100 doubles targets. Some of her shooting accomplishments are:
