— Fishing Has No Boundaries (FHNB), Inc., is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that provides events that focus on giving people with disabilities opportunities to fish. Just as important, however, the activities become forums that create awareness and bring about needed changes in the community. Staging these events requires strong local organizations with volunteers. Many of these individuals may have their first experience working with people with disabilities. Organization membership is available, and sponsors are welcome. FHNB's goal is to establish at least one chapter office in every state. Contact: FHNB, P.O. Box 175, Hayward, WI 54843.

— Two national trap circuits recently merged for the Western Spring Grand: The Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) and the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) agreed to collaborate at the ATA Satellite Spring Grand, held in Phoenix, February 12-18.

Although you would expect the warm winter weather and dry, hard-packed surface at the Phoenix Trap and Skeet Club to be ideal for this first joint effort, Mother Nature posed a few challenges this year. Rain and cool temperatures made pushing wheelchairs through the mud quite difficult.

Approximately 45 wheelers took part in this year's Spring Grand. Ray Stafford (Colo.) and Rick Nelson (Minn.) were the PVA event's High Overall winners, with 297 and 280, respectively. Chris Ewer and his Cal-Diego teammates—Jim Russell, Bill Palmer, Keith Rheinhardt, and Phil Santos—won Kachina dolls for their first-place finish at the Arizona PVA/ATA Trapshoot.
