As the spring moves forward we are all getting anxious to work with our teams and help them grow into highly competitive shooters.  On behalf of MYSSA I want to personally invite you to the Coaches Meeting and Clinic on March 21st.  This is a great opportunity to learn new techniques, meet other coaches, win some raffle items, grow your Midway USA Foundation account and have some fun shooting. 

At the meeting we will collect any donations you are willing to provide and double them up to $2,000.  We encourage you to make a deposit of any amount.  We do understand you have tight budgets, but consider depositing a portion to move your account forward.  Remember this money will be available to your team each year into the future – leave a legacy.

Here is a schedule of events:

Door Prizes – 1 raffle ticket for every deposit into your foundation account on March 21 – 5 raffle tickets for each team that did not make a deposit in 2019 – $10 minimum.        

*If your team makes an online donation on March 21, your team will also be eligible for a $1000 addition to your team endowment. This is only for Missouri coaches in attendance on March 21. That’s pretty good odds of winning since there are only as many entries as there are coaches in attendance! The donation can come from anyone. The online donation minimum is $10 and it only takes one entry to be eligible.  Must have 15 teams present. If five or more teams a drawing will be held.  If less than 5 the money will be evenly dispersed.

If there are coaches who plan on attending who have not yet set up an account with the Foundation, go to this link to get it set up now to be eligible to win the $1000.   (
