Around Oklahoma June 2022 The 2022 Oklahoma State shoot is in the record books! Similar to any other week in central Oklahoma, mother nature gave us a wide range of weather conditions. Sun, wind, clouds, and at times heavy thunderstorms. The week also gave us an opportunity to see old friends and to meet new ones. After 2020 and 2021, there was a lot of excitement to resume a normal state shoot program and activities. Reviewing the attendance numbers quickly. The attendance for the entire week was up almost 5% and attendance for Championship weekend was up about 6.5% compared to 2021. There were a total of 525 entries across the championship events, assuming no changes to the All-American competition factor calculation, Oklahoma should have a competition factor of 3 next year. A complete list of results are on the web. Congratulations to Josh Stacey State Singles Champion breaking a 199, Jacob Diller State Doubles Champion with a 98, and Klayton McGee State Handicap Champion with a 97. Congratulations to these state champions and to all trophy winners. Hopefully I have captured all of the 25, 50, and 75 straight patch recipients. Tad Nicholson Angie Cavett, Nate Hickey, and Austin Smith 75 straight, John Nicholson 25 straight from the 20-yard line then the following day 50 straight in singles, and Aiden Wood and Quade Richardson 50 straight. Congratulants to all patch recipients! Event #8 Oklahoma Classic Handicap included a lucky number drawing for a chance at a Henry rifle. After many rounds on Friday night and finishing on Saturday morning, Rodney Savely won the rifle. At this year’s shoot, 73 AIM shooters participated setting a new record. On Sunday between the State Doubles and Handicap events, Oklahoma AIM hosted a Tim Diester Memorial Wolf Chase with 47 participants taking the field. In the end, Clay Laughlin won a Henry Golden Boy rifle with a special Tim Diester Memorial etched into the stock. Brody Prior was runner winning two cases of shotgun shells and Noah Trousdale from Missouri was the out of state champion winning one case of shells. Any successful event does not happen without a large team of volunteers. I want to thank everyone that contributes to a successful 2022 state shoot. A shout out to all of the event sponsors and program advertisers. Your support really helped to make this a great event. Shout out to Dennis Patrick for attaining 25,000 registered handicap targets! Congratulations Dennis! Shout out to Rodney Savely for attaining 25,000 registered singles targets! Congratulations Rodney! Last month Billy Pierce was called out for achieving 50,000 registered targets. What I failed to acknowledge correctly was that Billy attained 50,000 registered singles targets and 50,000 registered handicap targets. Congratulations Billy! I apologize I didn’t get this correct last month. One last call out, Mason Tucker run the first 75 to finish with a 99 and to win the Out-of-State Kansas State Handicap Championship. Jeff Trayer was elected ATA delegate during the state meeting. Congratulations Jeff! On a personal note, its been a pleasure to represent Oklahoma during my short tenure as delegate. A huge thank you to everyone for your support. Going forward Jeff will be sharing the great news from around Oklahoma and country as he will be taking over the monthly Trap & Field articles. Kevin Nanke ATA Delegate
