ners in the industry also took a vested interest in giving our ath- letes the best training conditions possible as Hornady, Pardini and a number of Freedom Group companies including Remington Arms & Ammunition Co., DPMS/ Panther Arms, Marlin and Bush- master, all stepped forward. Firing points were also pur- chased as a way to honor friends and loved ones in the shooting community that have inspired and infl uenced many.


Those


honored include Bart Parnall, along with Gary Spychalski, who was unaware of the point in his honor until seeing it at the recent Winter Airgun Championships. The message on his point: “Pas- sionate Coach, Loyal Friend.”


In


addition, USA shooting would like to recognize the Pickett Me- morial Fund and the estate of Charles Goss for their contribu- tions. Leonard Pickett was the CEO and owner of Crosman Arms. Similarly, Paul Borthwick spon- sored a point in honor of his fa- ther, R. Bruce Borthwick, who was deeply dedicated to the sport. Paul sponsored point No. 53 in order to honor another abiding commitment in his father’s life: R. Bruce Borthwick graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1953.


USA Shooting Clubs also got


involved as well including the Palmyra Pistol


Team, Langley


Junior Rifl e Club, Acorns Junior Rifl e


Team and the National


Training Center Shooting Club. The Rochester (NY) Rifl e Club


sponsored a point in honor of three-time Olympian and 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Jason Turner.


Turner got his start in


Rochester and even to this day as a Colorado Springs resident is benefi tting from the generosity of his childhood shooting range. The inscriptions on some of


the range points sponsored by USA Shooting Team donors offer sage advice to all shooters: Pam Vossen’s point notes that “It’s Just a Shot Away” while Gina Schoenen- berger’s point says to take it “1 At A Time.” Jack Wolf’s point reminds shooters “You can do this” while Sallie Carroll’s point is inscribed “Pistol - Watch the front sight!” Deep devotion to the over- all project was provided by Bud Kucera, who helps oversee the USA Shooting National Training Center Shooting Club. His dili- gence, patience and care helped ensure the ranges were ready for Winter Airgun Championships. The countless hours he spent dedicated to overseeing these improvements is a testament to his character and an example of the support USA Shooting con- tinues to receive from its mem- bers and supporters. The examples above repre- sent just a portion of the gen- erosity that goes into a project of this nature. Projects like this help remind us of the amazing connections people share with USA Shooting and how much im- pact a shooting range can have on people’s lives.
