16 PULLUSA MAGAZINE SPRING 2019 THE LEAD R A NGE ROV ER JUST MINUTES NORTH OF ROME, WISCONSIN, stands the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association (WTA) Shooting Complex and Learn- ing Center, a testament to Badger State trap shooters' passion for the sport they love and a desire to build a centrally located facility accessible to students across the state. The complex opened on the first day of the 2013 WTA State Shoot and has become a destination. In fact, last year's shoot was the third largest in the country, attracting partici- pants from 28 different states. This facility boasts 30 trap fields that offer a wide variety of trap shooting experiences. There is American-style trap shooting as well as an Olympic bunker for international-style trapshooting. And in support of its mission to promote the sport and inspire the next generation, the WTA fully supports education and training of youth shooters. During the 2018 spring season, 1,941 students from 78 Wisconsin high school teams participated in Wisconsin State High School Clay Target League (WISHSCTL) com- petition, which culminated with a state tournament held in June at the WTA Shooting Complex. "Clay target shooting as an activity for Wisconsin high school athletes continues to grow by leaps and bounds," said Jim Sable, founder of the USA High School Clay Target League. "The record-setting growth we've seen shows the demand for alternative high school activities related to Wisconsin's longstanding outdoor traditions." This is the fifth consecutive year DID YOU KNOW? The WTA camp- ground and RV park includes 104 pull-through sites, electricity, water, sewer, restroom and shower facilities. by DAVE POND V I S I T O U R WEB S I T E F O R M O R E L E AG U E N E WS A N D I N F O!
