News and Updates

Dear ISTA Members

I hope this finds all of you staying healthy and safe. These are certainly strange and challenging times.  The COVID 19 pandemic seems to be just hanging on.

I promised you an update and to keep you informed on actions the ISTA was taking to work through this pandemic. The Governor’s office Monday issued a statement that effective May 1st, restrictions in 77 Iowa counties would be lessened. The ISTA Board voted Tuesday night at its board meeting per the governors announcement, that effective May 1st, the decision whether to hold events or not  is up to each club’s management. Not just in the 77 counties where the governor lessened restrictions but all 99 counties in Iowa. Social distancing and guidelines by the governors office should be practiced at all times.

I urge each one of you to not only follow the guidelines put in place by the Governor’s office, but use what works best, good old common sense to keep yourself as well as others safe during this pandemic. I will also take this opportunity to let you know we are continuing to make plans to host the 2020 Iowa State Shoot. Thank You and stay safe.

Steve Glasgow, ISTA President

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!
