Passing of Don Snyder

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of Don Snyder, who passed away on Wednesday, May 30th, following complications after having heart surgery. As many of you know, Don Snyder was the Executive Director of the NSSA for many years. Don was a retired Chief Master Sergeant in the Air Force and was also a member of the Armed Forces Skeet Association Hall of Fame. I will be posting further information as it becomes available.
