|WINTER HAVEN, FL - The Florida Skeet
Association held it's annual Winter Meeting of the Board Of Directors at the
Polk County Skeet and Trap Club in Winter Haven, Florida, on February 5th,
2005 at 7:45am.
Present were representatives from across the state, to discuss many topics including the Spring State Championships and the 2005 All State Team.
Among the names listed in the roster of All State Team Members were three members of the Markham Skeet Trap and Sporting Clays Club ("Markham Skeet" to my faithful readers!). Mark O'Mara and Philbert Campbell made the Sub Sub Senior team with averages of .9470 and .9643, respectively. Also listed was Kevin O'Mara as the lone All State Sub Junior team member with a .7850 average. Each of these members is to be congratulated on this outstanding achievement. Many of you may recall that the father and son team of O'Mara and O'Mara won HOA and E Class Club Skeet Championships at the January 2005 shoot. The HOA title was Mark's second consecutive Club Championship.
The upcoming State Championship shoot to be held at Trail Glades Range in April will include fee changes brought about indirectly as a result of hurricane damage. It seems that there were several clubs across the state that have lost not only shoots during the hurricane (which reduces the revenue to the state) but were damaged to the extent that shoots have been cancelled. This loss of revenue means that the Daily Shoot Fees (the largest portion of the State Association's revenue) will not allow the FSA maintain prior pricing at the State Championships. Teddy Montoto, representing Miami's Trail Glades Range, wanted it pointed out that the increase in fees was not due to the location of the shoot, but was due to other factors. Additional discussions were held including alternate vendors for awards and yearly State Shoot pins (as opposed to event unique pins) as ways to reduce costs and maintain reasonable fees for State shoots.
As you may already know, the FSA collects $1 for each day each shooter participates in a registered shoot, a very reasonable fee. By the way, we are still looking for any help, financial or material, that can be offered for the State Championships this April.
The State Financial Report revealed that the Association is on sound footing, and the discussions of the budget for the Championships were based on maintaining that solid position.
