Walter J. Schneider – 2001

Walter J. Schneider
Walt began trapshooting in 1953, but due to business was limited in shooting until the mid-sixties. When Walt retired, he began a very successful career in trap shooting. He has been a substantial force in the Reed City Gun Club for over 25 years. Walt was instrumental in starting shooting events for the Boy Scouts and 4H clubs and was the leader in bringing the Ronald McDonald Shoot to Mid-Michigan. Of Walt, his loving friends have said, “It is his personal commitment to the shooting sports that has carried the weight for us all. What he has done and accomplished with and for others will go on for many years to serve the MTA and ATA.”
