Times, they are a changing…

Just a few things you need to know…

First,  Life members should receive their newly designed permanent cards soon.  Cards for our Annual and Youth members are similar in appearance, complete with their permanent assigned ISTA membership number.  Current membership information is available on our website and is updated regularly.  Issuance of paper cards annually has been discontinued.

Second, unfortunately, due to the cancellation of the SCTP Trap Championships, the continuation of the electric upgrade has been put on hold until funds become available – hopefully Spring 2021.

And lastly, on April 29 I advised the Board of Directors of my decision to vacate the Secretary/Treasurer position as of August 31, 2020.  I am awaiting direction from the Board on how they wish to proceed and what skills the desire in the new Secretary/Treasurer.  I know from my experience that knowledge of Word, Excel and QuickBooks is extremely helpful.  Anyone interested in learning more about the position should contact their respective Zone Director or President Glasgow.

It has been my honor to serve you, the members, of the ISTA and i look forward to seeing you on the trapline soon.

Stay well,



Congratulations to the 2019 Iowa State Trap Team Members!
