Thank you to everyone that attended the 2020 Missouri Fall Handicap and the U.S. Open. Congratulations to all the trophy winners! We had nearly perfect weather everyday and could not have asked for better shooting conditions. It was our pleasure to have you as our guest and we hope you had a great time and plan to come back next year. Our State Shoot next year will be May 17-23, 2021 and the Fall Handicap will be September 20-26, 2021. The Summer Handicap date has not yet been determined. Local professional photographer, Kate Wright, was on hand for pictures. Here is a link to the pictures she took. https://bit.ly/3iPwAC2  If you see a photo you like, you can order it directly from this site. At future shoots, in addition to taking trophy winner pictures, Kate will be available for any special photos you want such as squad pictures, action pictures of the entire squad, individual pictures or any other photo to preserve the memories. You will just need to let her know in advance that you want this done. Her contact information is on the link. Again, many thanks to everyone for making this a successful shoot.


From all of us at the MTA, Thank You to all the shooters, families and vendors from 45 states that attended the AIM National Youth Trapshooting Championships and the 121st  Grand American World Trapshooting Championships at the Missouri Trapshooters Association. We hope all of you had a great time at the MTA and at the Lake of the Ozarks. We invite you to make plans to come back and visit us again. Also, many thanks to Governor Mike Parson, Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, State Senator Justin Brown and State Representative Suzie Pollock for speaking at the Opening Ceremony and welcoming all of you to the Great State of Missouri.


Junior Gold shooter, Dagen J. Voigtman, a 27 yard shooter from Nebraska, became the first person ever to break all 400 Championship targets at the Grand American World Championship Tournament and it happened at the Missouri Trapshooters Association, Linn Creek, Missouri.  We were honored to be the location of the 2020 Grand American and thrilled that this unprecedented shooting accomplishment was done at the MTA.
We tip our hat to Dagen. Congratulations!
