MSSA Hall of Fame

Bill Walmsley - 2018


Mark Gay - 2018

Mark was introduced to shooting by his father who had been a state champion in the 60’s.
Later in life Mark was invited to the Isaac Walton range by Paul and Jake Turska. Competitive aspirations grew there while shooting alongside other registered shooters such as Marty Cherry.
Eventually Mark settled into a squad with Sam Armstrong and Larry Seward, traveling frequently with Larry to the World Shoot.
Mark was nominated by Sam Armstrong for induction in 2018
Some of Marks' most memorable achievements include his first medal at the State shoot and a five man team victory at the World Shoot.

Chad Everett - 2000

Chad started shooting at Sudlersville Skeet Club after delivering firewood there at age 13. He was given 5 shells and went 5 straight. As time went on, Dick Kane contributed much to Chad’s early shooting, paying entry fees and overnight stays through his sub junior and junior career. Chads shooting took another step up when Chad began coveting PA shooter Robert Eukenalis’ world championship ring. Robert admonished Chad to “go get your own”. Four years later Chad won his 410 world championship.
Chad took a long break after having children but has returned to shooting to see his friends again. 
Chad is also in the DE HOF.
