Christmas message from ICTSA Chairman

   20 Dec 2022

I would like to wish all ICTSA members and their families a very Happy Christmas.

As 2022 draws to a close, and the competition calendar comes to an end for 2022, I would like to reflect on the year past and look forward to 2023.

Looking back, 2022 has been a marvelous year for our association . We have emerged from the challenges of COVID with our membership level at the highest it has been for many years. We have completed a very full year of domestic competition, with high participation across all disciplines. We have sent teams to a number of World Championships events, and to all Home Internationals, where in particular we saw great success in OT & ABT. We hosted Home Internationals in three disciplines here in Ireland, and also ran two AGM's, and are now back on track to have just one AGM per year. 

We have also welcomed some new grounds to the ICTSA, which is fabulous to see.

Looking forward, our competition calendar for 2023 is now published and is packed with events across all disciplines, and I would like to thank over 300 members who have already paid their 2023 membership subscriptions online.  

So I think we can say that everyone deserves a good rest over the Christmas break. I look forward to seeing you on a clay target range in 2023. 

Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all.
