Much hard work takes places behind the scenes. So you will know who is responsible
for that work AND if you have a question about a particular area you will know which officer to approach.
The Grand American had beautiful weather every day. The targets were good which led to perfect scores in every event. The Grand is a hard place to win, due to the large number of the best shooters from around the world competing. Oklahoma shooters were able to compete and win. Some of them winning awards that we noticed were Kya Funkhouser, Shelby Skaggs, Vickie Farmer, Randy Farmer, Charles Leadingfox, Kenyon Bert, Pat Stacey, Josh Stacey, Corbin Grybowski, Nathan Lemki, Lynden Shumaker, William Dayton, Robert Rimer, Christopher Diller, Jacob Diller, Robert Ernsting, Eric Parks, Ron Bliss, Brayden Bliss.

Taylor Casteel was required to shoot penalty 25 yard handicap. She still shot very well having a 98 in singles. There were 54 Oklahoma shooters again this year same as last year. Twenty-three of these were our young AIM shooters, who stayed and shot Grand Week. Kathy Key won the Perazzi HyTech Combo Gun in the drawing. I offered to help her "break it in". Kathy plans to visit her daughter in Edmond on Sept 16th. They just got moved in, but the furniture has not arrived yet!!
