Shooting sports

On behalf of the Pennsylvania State Sportsmen’s Association Executive Committee I would like to thank The Daily Item for their tremendous coverage of the PA State Trapshooting Championship at our home grounds in Elysburg. It is gratifying to see such positive coverage of a gun-related activity.

The State Championships drew nearly 2,000 shooters from 25 states, plus Canada, and those individuals safely fired at nearly 1.2 million clay targets. This family oriented sport included participants ranging in age from 13 to 90 and brought additional thousands of relatives and friends to watch the shooting and shop vendor row.

In an age when so much of the media is anti-gun it is refreshing to have such positive coverage from The Daily Item. Thanks again.

Chuck Fritzges, PSSA manager and tournament director
