PSSA 2018 Program Update

It has come to our attention that there were errors in our 2018 Program.

First is that Event #5 of the Keystone Open is 100 Doubles Targets using 24 Banks, not 100 Handicap.

Second is the Requirement for Doubles during the Colonial Classic, PA State Shoot, PA Grand and PSSA Pre-Grand. It should be “300 Targets during the current year” and not 500 as listed.

Sorry for the oversight and hope to see you all this week!!

Richard C. (Puddy) Hamilton, 79

Richard C. (Puddy) Hamilton, 79, Fleetwood, passed away on Sunday February 11, 2018 with his loving family by his side. Born in Reading, Richard was the fourth son of the late Dr. Harry and Kathryn (Keim) Hamilton. Sharing his time between the town house in Fleetwood, the family farm, and their mountain cabin, Puddy spent his youth playing childhood games and sports with his brothers and friends such as Teddy Eastland, Cap Kline, and Walter Richard Christ. He married Judy (Becker) and together they raised three children, Bradley, husband of Deanne (Fleetwood), KayLynn, wife of Emerson Bornman (Oley), and Matthew, Fleetwood. A 1956 graduate of Fleetwood High School and a 1960 graduate of East Stroudsburg Teachers College, Puddy spent his entire career teaching in the Fleetwood School District

Puddy lived a full life that included passions for Fleetwood Tiger baseball, trapshooting and antiques. He was the head coach of the Tigers baseball team and proudly coached them to numerous Berks County Championships. He also established the Tiger Classic Holiday Basketball Tournament while serving as athletic director. He looked forward to attending the annual ballplayers reunion picnics.

As a nationally renowned expert on trapshooting history, Puddy was instrumental in establishing the Pennsylvania State Sportsmen’s Association (PSSA) Trapshooting Hall of Fame. He also created and maintained the PSSA website from its inception in 1999 until his retirement as webmaster in June, 2017. Puddy developed an historical slide show that was presented annually at the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) Hall of Fame ceremonies. A 1992 PSSA Hall of Fame enshrinee, he and Judy traveled the east coast in their motorhome to trapshooting tournaments and especially enjoyed Florida where they could also catch Phillies Spring Training and Disney World. An accomplished trapshooter, Puddy was a life member of the ATA and a 5 year All American Chair Shooter (2012, 2014-2017). His final shooting event was at the 2017 Pennsylvania State Shoot where he won the Resident Chair Shooter in the Class Singles. He thoroughly enjoyed writing historical articles for TrapShootingUSA, with his last article published in the March/April 2018 edition.

In recent years, Puddy’s passion turned to his antique stand at Renninger’s Antique Market in Kutztown. He could be found there every Saturday enjoying the company of fellow vendors and customers. His sporting collectibles are known nation-wide and have been featured in numerous magazines.

A lifelong hunter, Puddy spent countless hours hunting on the family farm, Hillside Farm in Rockland Township. He also has a hunting cabin, Shiham, that doubled as a vacation spot in Hyner, Clinton County. He also enjoyed Phillies baseball, Eagles football, Flyers hockey, everything Penn State, and vacationing in Maine.

In addition to his wife and children, Puddy is survived grandchildren Jon Hamilton and Jamie Evans, four great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins, and his beloved Labrador Retriever, Annie. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Please join the family for a graveside service on Friday February 16th at 11:00 AM in Fleetwood Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday February 25th at 2:00 PM in Emmanuel United Methodist Church, 26 West Washington Street, Fleetwood.

PSSA Financial Report from Treasurer Bert Schoonover

PSSA Pat Trap Financial Facts

The close of the fiscal year, December 31st, is on the horizon for the PSSA, An immediate priority for the PSSA Executive Committees to pay down or pay off the cost of that initiative as soon as practically possible. The financial facts associated with the purchase of 53 Pat Traps for the Elysburg home grounds is as follows:

  • Pat Trap Cost – $454,316.00
  • Sale of the Super Stars – $188,000.00
  • Donations – $161,480.00
  • Current Pat Trap Loan Balance – $104,836.00

The Loan supporting the unfunded balance of the Pat Trap purchase is through the Northwest Savings Bank. It is a Line of Credit at a Variable Interest Rate. Interest payments are approximately $6,100.00 per year at the present time.

The PSSA is fortunate to possess many loyal patrons in addition to to supporting Clubs and other organizations. Perhaps there are some among this network who could be interested in an IRS Tax Deduction for 2017 through a donation toward the retirement of the Pat Trap debt. It is not to late to take this important step. The new Pennsylvania State Shotgunning Association now possesses a 501 3C tax designation. Gifts to the PSSA are TAX DEDUCTIBLE. When a donation is made to the PSSA the Executive Director, Skip Klinger, will immediately author a letter to the donor for their tax records identifying the amount gifted. It is important to note no gift is too small to be appreciated by the PSSA. Another donor option that would be considered is a pledge in some amount specified by the donor.

The PSSA understands not all of our friends are able to make a donation at this time and take advantage of the tax implications. But, hopefully, there are some who could consider such an option. If more information is required contact Executive Director Klinger.
