ATTENTION GUN CLUBS: 

This is the ATA’s list of the shooters who shot for the first time during the 2015 target year at a gun club in Ohio and owe ATA dues.  The ATA has mailed letters to the shooters as well as to each gun club where they first shot. I would appreciate any  assistance in getting these dues paid so they are not deducted from our State rebate check.  If you are able to collect from a shooter, please advise the OSTA secretary (Noreen Snively) ASAP.  
 

 

The following shooters have unpaid dues from 2013 and 2014 and are prohibited from shooting registered targets in the state of Ohio until they are current.  If a club has paid the dues for the shooter, the club must be reimbursed.  Until the matter is rectified, they should not be allowed to shoot at your gun club.  Please notify the OSTA Secretary ASAP if you are able to collect the past due funds.

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

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.
