Around Oklahoma January 2022
So far this year Derby season has really been affected by the winter weather that has been passing through Oklahoma on the weekends. Mother-nature did a 180-degree flip and provided beautiful sunny skies and warmer temperatures on Saturday January 22ndand Sunday January 23rd for Ada and OTSA derbies, respectively. Ada had a great turn-out for their Saturday derby with 71 shooters. Phenomenal participation. Check out Ada’s new Facebook page Ada Shotgun Sports (Formerly Ada Skeet and Trap Club) for club news, shoots, and results. OSTA’s derby hosted 17 shooters and light breezes. Complete results are posted on the OTSA website.
The Oklahoma shoot calendar is set. For all the details, please visit the OTSA website and click the 2022 Oklahoma Trap Shoots link on the top of the page. We were excited to welcome back the Clinton Gun Club into the shoot calendar; it’s been awhile since they have hosted ATA registered targets. We are also hearing rumors that the Duncan Gun Club will host a few Big 50s this year. Please keep supporting the local clubs through participation in Big 50s, 100-target events, and practice targets. This participation really helps them sustain a presence in their communities and continue to promote shooting sports.
The OTSA Board of Directors have been busy working on the 2022 Oklahoma State program. I think they will have a refreshed program with new options to play and a few old favorites with new splits. Please mark your calendars to join us for the Oklahoma State Shoot May 31st to June 5that the OTSA home grounds in El Reno, OK. In addition to the state shoot, the Board has been planning to host one of the shoot sites for the 2022 Southwest Zone Shoot July 15th to 17th.
The Oklahoma trap community lost Tim Diester very unexpectedly last summer. In Tim’s honor a memorial fund has been established. For so many years during state shoots, zone shoots, and other registered events, Tim was always standing at the classification desk waiting for the next shooter. The memorial funds will create “Tim’s Corner” near the classification desk to honor his legacy. For more information, please visit the OTSA’s website. There is a link in the middle of the page Tim Diester Memorial.
