My shooting career started at the Winona Sportsmen’s Club in 1986 where I shot league for two years before I started registering targets. I shot my first registered targets in May of 1988.

In August 1990, I made the 27 yard line at the Grand American. I have been on the Minnesota State Team eleven straight years serving as captain for two years. For the past two years, I have also been on the All-American Team. (2001 & 2002)

During the last sixteen years, I have broken twelve 200-straights in singles, six 100straights in handicap, and forty-nine 100-straights in doubles.

The following are some
of the major shoot wins in my career:

  • 1992 – Minnesota State Doubles Champion 1995 – 14th Place President’s Handicap – Grand American

  • 1995 – Utah State Doubles Champion

  • 1996 – Minnesota State All-Around Champion

  • 1997 – Western Grand AAA Doubles Champion

  • 1997 – AA Doubles Runner-up – Grand American

  • 1998 – 10th Place Perazzi Handicap – Grand American

  • 2000 – Utah State Singles Champion 2000 – Utah State Handicap Champion

  • 2001 – Wisconsin State Doubles Champion

  • 2001 – Minnesota State Handicap Champion

  • 2001 – Minnesota State All-Around Champion

  • 2002 – Golden West Grand Preliminary Handicap Champion

  • 2002 – Golden West Grand Doubles Champion

I was president of the Winona Sportsmen’s Club for four years. I served two years as the Southern Zone Director. During the past nine years, I’ve been an alternate delegate (serving six weeks as delegate -which could be the shortest term in the ATA).

I have been setting targets at the Minnesota State Shoot the past nine years and have worked at the Grand American on the target setting committee for four years. I am a life member of the ATA.
