Dr. James Lally

Why I serve: At my son’s fi rst selection match, I met Lloyd Wood- house who told me how much support was needed for the Junior Olympic shotgun competition. I conducted a private fundraising effort and was able to provide most of the funds needed for the next Shotgun Junior Olympics. Through that effort and actually going to the event, I was hooked. A few years later, Lloyd asked if I was interested in joining the USA Shooting Board of Directors and I said yes. I believe my accounting and business background have been useful to the Board and I am still enthusiastic after more than 10 years on the Board. What USA Shooting has and contin- ues to accomplish with its limited resources is truly amazing and it is fun to be associated with such a hard working group of people.
