2017 Legacy Weekend

Friday, August 25th & Saturday, August 26th

USA Shooting (USAS) is proud to invite our alumni, members, supporters and fans to attend a fun-filled LEGACY weekend to honor five-time Olympian, Lieutenant Colonel Lones Wigger and induct four new members into the U.S. International Shooting Hall of Fame. The weekend includes celebrating Lones’ 80th birthday, the renaming of the Olympic Shooting Center, the 2017 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Alumni Reunion.

USAS is working on creating a legacy for the shooting sports and have established a legacy endowment named after Lones Wigger, which will provide additional funding opportunities for USA Shooting to help grow youth programs and enhance grassroots development.

Be a part of helping build that legacy by giving to the Lones Wigger/USAS Jr. Olympic Endowment today.

During a Friday night celebration, USA Shooting will rename the Olympic Shooting Center to the Lones Wigger Legacy Hall & Shooting Center. We will be celebrating all his accomplishments and the impact he has had on our sport and in our lives. The reception is FREE to attend and will include hor d'oeuvres and cocktails.

2017 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony -- August 26, 5:30pm

The alumni reunion and legacy weekend will conclude with the induction of four (4) new members into the U.S. International Shooting Hall of Fame at Hotel Eleganté Saturday evening.

The U.S. International Shooting Hall of Fame was established in 1991 by the NRA International Competitions Committee and will officially induct members 28-31 into its prestigious ranks in 2017.  The four inductees will be the most in one year since the inaugural 1991 class that featured Gary Anderson, Lones Wigger, Alfred Lane and Morris Fisher.

The cost of the Hall of Fame dinner will be $45 per person which includes one free drink ticket (soft drink or alcoholic beverage).
