WV's Trapshooting History NEW 1905 - 1909 Just Added

   I've added the 1905 - 1909 State shoots under the History tab at the top of the page. The scans are courtesy of Kenny Ray Estes who has sent the WVATA volumes about its history. It appears that the weather tormented early trapshooters as well. I also see that somethings never change, it was included in the story that in 1907 the targets were hard as some were found with 6 holes in them and not broken!
