I will be out of state most of this weekend covering, competing, and generally recreating at the 117th Annual Amateur Trapshooting Association Grand American at the fabulous World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Illinois.
If you enjoy shooting and a friendly atmosphere I encourage you to attend as it is THE place to be. The ATA Grand is one of if not the largest shooting event in the world, held at one of the biggest and nicest ranges I’ve ever seen. If you have any interest in shotgunning, you will have a good time!
The ATA expects over seven thousand shooters and upwards of one hundred thousand spectators over the eleven day event.
I promise to take pictures and, depending on how close I am to the internet, possibly report here from the event itself.
If you would like to know more, or just need to kill some time until you leave, I’ve included some informational links below.
Have a good weekend and happy shooting. I hope to see you there!
