The following week is The Florida State Shoot March 20-25, 2018 at the Silver Dollar Shooters Club. 

I’m sorry to report the recent passing of another trapshooter, Robert (Jud) Gaither. He hadn’t shot in several years due to declining health. Jud shot at 7,600 Singles, 6,900 Handicap and 2,900 Doubles. He was a member of Memphis Sport Shooting Association.
