For the 2013 State Shoot scores/winners, go to:
At the Cardinal Shooting Center, there is a brick walkway under the O.S.T.A.
awning, by the score sheet annex area. This area is on the east end of the 1st
Vendor’s building. The O.S.T.A. is selling engraved bricks for the walkway.
You or your Gun Club, can become a permanent part of this wonderful facility and
trapshooting history. You can buy a brick to commemorate a special memory like the
day you broke your first 100 straight, or in memory of a special loved one. The
possibilities are endless. Please consider buying a brick and becoming a part of
the history of Cardinal Shooting Center. These bricks will last forever so
generations of shooters will be able to view your message.
Please go to "Foundation" at the top of this page for details and forms.
Brick sample- 2 sizes available
