Per the Bylaws of the Pacific International Trapshooting Association, we are required to meet at least once annually.  Generally, this meeting is held at the Grand Pacific but since we were unable to hold that event this year, we have had to find another way to meet.  The 2020 PITA Annual Meeting will be held via gotomeeting.com at 10 a.m. PST, on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

The main agenda item for the General Meeting is the election of Executive Committee members.  Four members are elected annually by a majority vote of the delegates and executive Committee members in attendance.  Those EC members whose terms are expiring is Betty Phipps, Patty Sargent, Mike Riggs, and Lonny Brown.  They have all agreed to run for another term, but we will also accept nominations from the floor.

While the elections are important, this is also a time for your state or province to raise issues, concerns, or ‘good of the order’ ideas for the association.  We understand this is a different form of meeting, but we will take the time to hear from everyone who wants to speak.

Each state and provincial organization is allowed to elect or appoint two delegates for the general meeting and they are then entitled to one (1) additional delegate for each one hundred (100) current members of this association residing within their respective state or province.  If you are interested in serving as a Delegate for your state or province, please contact your association President and/or Secretary.

If you would like to join the meeting contact me or Kay.

The Casa Grande Trap & Skeet Club played host to the PITA Arizona State Shoot March 2 & 3.  In an unusual turn of events, the normally balmy Arizona weather went south with rain and wind forcing the postponement of the first half of Championship Singles to the second day’s events.  Some of the usual suspects turned in high scores in the Championship events.  Championship Singles, Lonny Brown, Oregon, 199; Championship Doubles, Dave Kelly, California, 97, and a surprise Handicap Champion with Esther Puckett, California, 96.  If her name sounds familiar, Esther is the President of the Newman Swamp Rats Gun Club who recently returned to hosting PITA events.  Complete shoot results can be found under Arizona on the RESULTS page.

Well shooters, it is that time of year again.  While it may seem like a long
way off, it is really just around the corner.  That is the Grand Pacific.
It is time to start thinking about reserving your golf cart for the shoot.
The good news is that the prices will remain the same as last year.

2 person cart                  $300.00
4 person cart                  $365.00
6 person cart                  $430.00

We really need to make our reservations early to make sure that the
company we work with will have what we need and not promised
elsewhere.  Please contact Sue at the PITA office to make your
reservations and do not wait until the last minute.

Medford hosted a very successful shoot March 21-22 despite iffy weather.  Over 120 shooters from ID, WA, CA & NV attended.  A sub-junior ran away with Sunday’s handicap with a 96 (see all the results).  Enjoy the slide show.  If you want your clubs results/photos posted contact webmaster@shootpita.com. On Friday they hosted the 3rd round of the Oregon Doubles Marathon Classic with 21 shooters adding scores to the season – come join the fun – next round of this Classic will be at Albany Gun Club, April 10th.

The 2015 online CALENDAR and the printable PDF copy are complete.  The pocket schedule is printed and will be mailed with your renewal notice or average card.  They will also be available at your club.  Please verify the accuracy of  the shoot dates for your club.  It is also a good time to view the CLUB page and update your listing information.

From Kent Harris – Boise, Idaho – October 18, 2014

Hi everyone, over the years I have come into possession of a large number of PITA yearbooks (average books).  I would like to share these with fellow shooters (or gun clubs) who might need certain years to complete (or add to) their collections.

I have a large number of some years and only a few of others so it is first come – first served.  Get what you want right away.  The yearbooks are free but I would appreciate it if you would repay the postage after you get them.

Here is the list of what I have:    1960-62-63-64-65-66-67-68-69-70-71-72-73-74-75-76-77-78-79-80-81-82-83-84-85-86-87-88-89-90-91-92-93-94-95-96-97-98-99-2000-01-02-03-04-05-07-12.

I also have a few ATA average books if anyone would like them:  67-71-72-73-74-84-85-86-87-90-91-93-95-96-97-98-05.

After this is posted on the PITA site I will wait about a month, and if I still have books, I will go on to Trapshooters.com to reach a different audience.  I would like to have everything given away by the first of the year.

 I would also hope that none of these items show up on the web for sale.

 If you would like any of these items, let me know right away.  I can be reached at:

Email:  kentdeadapair@cableone.net

Regular mail:  3717 W. Custer Dr.  Boise, Idaho.  83705

Phone:  1-208-345-0711

Remember, it is first come – first served, especially on the older yearbooks.  Hope you all winter well.  Break a target for me.

Best wishes, Kent Harris.
