                                                Match Results for the 2013 ASMLA Shotgun Championships

Here are a few interesting facts concerning this year’s championships: 

1.      There were 27 shooters from seven different states competing in this year’s championships.  

2.      There were 3725 clay targets thrown (A new record).

3.      One perfect score was fired in the Low Gun Championship.

4.      Two people managed to fire a perfect score in the re-entry skeet matches.

5.      One perfect score was fired in the 16 yard trap match.

•         One of the highlights of the shoot came when all the competitors got to shoot Charles Martin’s hat after he fired his first perfect score in low gun.  His hat bravely faced the firing squad without exhibiting emotion and died an honorable death.  Sam Gladden had the sad duty of administering the coup de grace; he assured all the competitors that there was no life left in the hat when he did the deed.

•         Jack Stoner and Larry Hutcherson were the two shooters firing a perfect score in re-entry skeet, forcing a shoot off that was decided when Larry Hutchison missed with his first shot. (Gerald Bridges said “Hutcherson must have attended the Larry Reynolds school of shoot-off”.) 

•         John Cleveland was forced to relinquish his death grip on the Trap Wounded Bird Award when Jack Stoner set a new record low score of 12 in the Trap Championship.

 •         David Yeubanks showed the trap shooters how things are supposed to be done when he fired a perfect score in the 16 yard trap match.  We did not get to shoot his hat as David has shot more straights than Linda Yeubanks has cats.

The weather for the match could not have been better.  There was a light rain that moved through the area Thursday night but it did not hamper the shooting in any way.  The temperatures were just low enough to make a long sleeved shirt or a light jacket feel good.  This may have contributed to the large number of matches shot.  

 There were two new shooters at the match this year, Fred and Kathy Alford.  They made the trip from Coffeyville, Kansas. They both did some good shooting and took home awards.

2011 Results

The 2011 Alabama State Muzzle Loading Shotgun Championships were held November 3-6 and were a success by any measure.  The total number of participants was 27, a new record for the ASMLA.  There were 2820 targets thrown, this also set a new record for the most birds thrown during the State Championships. There were nine states represented also a new record.

 Charles Martin, Gerald Bridges, David Jones, Larry Reynolds, Don Holley, Shirley Henry and Sam Gladden did a great job of getting the range in shape and ready for the shoot.  It was as manicured as a golf course and looked great.  But the most comments about the range concerned the newly renovated restroom which was appreciated by everyone.

 There were several new faces in attendance.  Wayne and Linda Lollis as well as Roger and Pat Fowler made the trip from Iowa Park, Texas.  Mike and Betty Garrison from Louisiana, MO were also new participants at the match as were Jack and Angie Stoner from Indiana.

 A big thank you goes to Don Holley and Sam Gladden for exhibiting their collections of original English muzzle loading shotguns on Saturday evening after the close of shooting.  It was truly a privilege to view their collections and they were gracious enough to allow anyone who asked, to handle the guns and photograph them.  This side activity was open to participants in the match only and was one of the highlights of the match.  It was best described by Larry Hutcherson who, after viewing the collections, said “Wow, now that was one big pile of pretty!”

 A special thank you goes to Linda Yeubanks and Yvonne Knight who volunteered their time to help serve lunch each day and to help Joyce Gladden with the record keeping.  On behalf of the shotgun committee:  Thank you ladies!
