Son Posts Top Score to Take Trophy Named in Dad's Honor
Ten days before the 2012 Jack Robertson Sporting Clays Invitational, Al Anglace, the shoot's long-time mentor and a well-known Connecticut sporting clays organizer, lost a long battle with cancer. Shoot organizers recognized Anglace with "A Moment of Respect and Reflection", remarks honoring his contributions to the shooting sports and the renaming of the shoot's top award as the "Al Anglace Sporting Clays Excellence Award". But the greatest tribute of all came from Anglace's son, Dean, who posted a sizzling 97 x 100 to claim the High-Overall award named in honor of his father.
"I truly went into the shoot with the idea of bringing that trophy home to our family," Anglace said. "But at the same time, I knew that there would be some excellent shooters competing. I've heard about athletes getting in a "zone" and I guess that's what happened to me. On behalf of my family, we appreciate the Hunting Heritage Trust's recognition of my Dad at your shoot. It was a definitely a special day for me and my family."
