2021 President’s Message

Richard-Haynie-CroppedWelcome to a new year of Virginia skeet shooting! I hope everybody enjoyed some black-eyed peas, stewed tomatoes, and pork, so maybe 2021 will be a lot nicer to us than 2020.

My hunting season is about over, but my reloading season is in full swing. We are all finding that ammo and reloading components are in very short supply. Hopefully, items will become available again soon.

The new VSSA schedule is posted on our website. Please notice that Quantico is back in the VSSA and has several shoots scheduled.

Covid caused many adjustments to our lives in 2020 and may very well do so again this year. The main goal for all of us is to stay safe - for ourselves, for our families, and for our friends. I hope to see you on the skeet field!

Richard Haynie, VSSA President
