EAST ALTON, Ill. (Aug. 5, 2020) — Winchester Ammunition is the foremost supporter of recreational shooting and organizations like the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) that makes shooting sports available to the public. This year, Winchester continues its decades-long support of the ATA as a title sponsor of the 2020 Grand American World Trapshooting Championships and AIM Youth Championships.
The 2020 Grand events are currently taking place at the Missouri Trap Shooters Association home grounds in Linn Creek, Missouri. Thousands of trap shooters are competing in the 2020 events with their friends and families. The two-week event kicks off with the AIM Grand Championships, a youth shooting competition where kids from elementary school through college compete against others in their class in Singles, Doubles and Handicap Trap events. After the AIM event, shooters of all ages begin the 11-day Grand American Trap Shoot, which consists of daily events like the Winchester AA® Class Singles.
Team Winchester members Matt and Foster Bartholow continue their long-standing champion run at this year’s event, exclusively shooting Winchester AA® shotshells. Winchester AA shotshell ammunition is available for purchase on-site.
