Message from the Executive Committee
The Site Selection Committee has been working on the 2020 site for the Grand since late August. Two clubs were invited to host the 2020 Grand, only one responded. It became evident during negotiations with Spokane GC that we could not come to an equitable agreement – one that benefited the shooters, the hosting club and the PITA.
Once again, we are heading down a path that has been traveled before – a Grand Pacific hosted at two sites. This decision was reached by the EC at the 2-day meeting held at Medford GC on October 24-25. Three clubs were asked to consider hosting the 2020 Grand. Two clubs have committed to hosting the Grand, the Medford Gun Club and the Hillsboro Trap & Skeet Club. Contract negotiations are underway. Coming soon information on RV reservations (to be done by host clubs) and PreSquad – keep an eye on the PITA website.
There may be challenges but they are not insurmountable! You have an EC that is dedicated to presenting a Grand benefiting the shooter as well as the host clubs. You are the foundation for the Grand – it is your shoot. We welcome your assistance and input as we work on the logistics for providing a Grand at the two sites. Join us in welcoming and thanking the Medford Gun Club & Hillsboro Trap & Skeet Club for hosting the 2020 Grand Pacific. Let’s make this a positive experience for us all – you the shooter, management at Medford & Hillsboro clubs, and the PITA.
