    The OSTA Board of Directors and Officers conducted a conference call on May 2nd. As you can imagine, we had several items that needed to be discussed and I would like to update you on those items:

    -Zone Shoots: since the Zone Shoots were canceled, no Zone Teams will be established for 2020. The Zone Shoot trophies will be utilized for the 2021 Zone Shoots with the designation “2020/21”.

    - Zone Elections (Directors): the election of Zone Directors will take place on Saturday of the Ohio State Shoot. Each Zone will be required to staff the ballot box and certify the ballots. Shooters will be updated as the process & times are developed.

    - ATA Delegates & OSTA Director-At-Large Elections: these elections will be conducted on Saturday of the Ohio State Shoot.

    - State Team Requirements: the requirements to be considered for the 2020 State Team have been modified. The requirements: a shooter is not required to shoot the 400 targets at the Zone Shoot, the shooter is required to shoot the 400 Championship Targets at this year’s State Shoot, target requirements for consideration are 500/500/500 (singles/doubles/handicap) for ALL categories.

    - State Shoot Dates: another conference call will be conducted on May 16th to discuss and vote on the dates of the 2020 State Shoot. The June dates will be discussed and voted on with the dates of July 20-26th to be considered as alternative dates (If needed).

    Hopefully, this post finds everyone safe and healthy! As everyone knows, the events going on in Ohio, and around the globe, has affected all of us to some degree. The OSTA’s goal is to host a State Shoot that shooters, visitors and guests can be proud of.

    GOOD JOB TIM AND THE BOARD. I personally think the board has made all the right decisions under the conditions for the shooters, This is not an easy task under these conditions this year. Hopefully we are heading in the right direction.

    Thanks Tim. I'm glad to see you post something. Everyone is wondering if the state shoot will be and if it is when it will be. Very glad to see your post and please try to keep the shooters informed. There are so many things that are worrying so many shooters about what will come about in our sport this summer, not to mention many other things to worry about even more important in the overall scheme of things than shooting. Also many of our political opponents would like this stay home deal to continue as long as possible believing that it will hurt our president Trump.

    Tim,

    Thanks for keeping everyone updated. I watched the Governor’s press conference today and they said campgrounds could open next week. Fingers crossed!

    The OSTA Board of Directors conducted a conference call, this morning, and the Ohio State Shoot dates was the main topic of conversation. After a lengthy discussion, a vote was conducted and the Board of Directors voted to hold the Ohio State Shoot on June 22- 28, 2020. Take care, stay safe and enjoy your family. I hope to see you at the Cardinal Center next month!

    I hope they open the border by then. I think I have only missed one Ohio State Shoot in 39 years.

    I hope you and Nancy can make it down this year, Terry. If it won’t get you into too much trouble with the Mrs. I’m sure the Judge or Bob will have a nice cigar waiting for you. And of course you know my bar is always open for ya!

    Terry I see the US and Canada extended the border shutdown for non essential travel through June 22 today. You'll have to find some essential reason for coming to the CC. I don't know if you will have to be quarantined for 14 days or not and you can't get to Ohio without traveling through communist New York or communist Michigan anyhow. Their Governors are both democrat wack jobs.

    I guess I probably won't be seeing you and Nancy this year.

    I am looking into "event entries close when the last squad takes the firing line", at the Ohio State Shoot. Once I receive more information on this issue, it will be posted. Thank you for your input because we are listening.

    Tim holding the Ohio State Shoot on the scheduled days is a great shot for freedom. I can't see how the governor has the balls to tell anyone who can or can't open. If shooters want to come to Ohio and shoot, good for them and the OSTA, if they are afraid of a virus stay home, it's a free country and I'm glad you all are standing up for that which to me is even more important than just a trap shoot.

    I hope that there are a lot of trap shooters who say to hell with the piss ant politicians and come to your state shoot. It might be the biggest ata shoot of the year with what is happening in Illinois. My advise to you and the board is go after all those trap shooters who are pissed at their states stay at home hiding orders. Invite them on here personally to come to Ohio and celebrate American Freedom doing what they love smoking clays.

    I have been going to Defiance throughout this stay at home orders and it looks to me that most people around here have called Bull Shit and are out living their lives again. I noticed this about the first weekend of May. We flatten the curve, which is what they wanted so it's time to go back to living. Good Luck and keep up the fight and the info.

    The OSTA and R.J. Stuart worked together in order to resolve any issues around the cutoff times for each event. On page #17, section "E" of the Ohio State Shoot program states, "Event entries close when the last squad takes the firing line." There will be no times related to the closure of entries, except for the handicap on Sunday. With every other event, R.J. Stuart will contact our Tournament Director, Dennis Filo, prior to closing the entries for every event so he can make sure the last squad for that event has taken the firing line. Hopefully, this will eliminate some of the issues.

    Again, another great job by Tim and the OSTA Board. I call it the "common sense" rule. Tim, I would suggest looking at a process all the watering holes (bars) around here use. "LAST CALL". YOU GOT 1 HOUR (can be anything everyone is comfortable with, maybe it's 30 minutes) TO GET YOUR ENTRY IN AND PAID FOR. I think you need to use the PA and announce it. Eliminates all the bitching and whining. I do not want to hear it, it was announced, were you listening!!!! Just a thought and my opinion.
