State Shoot Registration Update

Shooters, the 2018 State Shoot is right around the corner. Be on the lookout for confirmations of your 2018 State Shoot registration, e-mails were sent out Wednesday, July 18th. Please review these carefully. State Shoot program booklets have just arrived and will be mailed out to all registered shooters. These should be arriving in your mailbox sometime next week.

Before coming to Arrowhead, please remember the following:

1.  Make sure your 2018 NSSA membership has been paid.
2.  Make sure you bring your average card WITH UP TO DATE AVERAGES.
3. If you need to print out anything from NSSA, please do so before leaving home. Remember there is very limited internet service at Arrowhead, and we cannot just look up your averages for you.

There is still room for 4 gun and single gun shooters. Contact me as soon as possible to register. The best way to contact me is via e-mail at tonda4skeet@gmail.com.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Arrowhead!  -Tonda Finney

Milton Mills Memorial Awards & Benefits

For those of you who didn’t have the opportunity to meet Milton Mills, he was an excellent shooter from Arrowhead who passed away in 2013. Over the years, he won numerous gun championships across the state, and in 2000 was the Virginia State HOA champion with a 398. For his many shooting accomplishments, he was elected to the VSSA Hall of Fame in 2011.

This year, Milton’s family is honoring his legacy with several awards and benefits for our junior and sub-junior shooters. At the Firecracker 400 Open this weekend at Arrowhead, all junior and sub-junior shooters will have their entry fees paid for the doubles and either the 12 gauge or the 20 gauge (targets only). A special cash award of $150 will be split between the junior and sub-junior doubles champions.

In addition, the Mills family will be covering the 12 gauge and doubles entry fees (targets only) for all junior and sub-junior shooters at the 2018 State Shoot at Arrowhead, and another cash award of $150 will be split between the junior and sub-junior doubles champions.

If anyone has any questions, please contact Chris Metts at 434-315-4464 or email chrismetts@hotmail.com.
