It has become an annual tradition for Central Texas IPSC shooters to run a charity match for the Make A Wish Foundation. The match was renamed the Shirley Skinner Classic, to honor our friend and fellow competitor who lost her own battle with cancer in 1998. Shirley gave a lot to the shooting community, both personally and as co-owner of STI, and we all miss her.
This year's match attracted over 100 competitors and raised over $18,000 for Make A Wish, topping last year's record $14,000 donation.
Michael and Cheryl Leck deserve special credit for organizing the match this year. In 1998 their home and business were destroyed in a major flood that devastated much of South Texas. Still in the midst of rebuilding their lives, they made time to make this match the most successful ever.
Bill Blankenship received this year's 'unsung hero' award, in recognition of his many years of service to Central Texas competitors.
