Gary Funkhouser HOF Inductee2018 Virginia Hall of Fame Inductee Gary Funkhouser
Gary has been a member of the VTA since 1992. In his earlier years, his 16-yard average was never below 93 and peaked at 98. However, Gary’s nomination and selection are based on his support of the VTA and all trapshooters.

Here are some of his many accomplishments. Gary became Manager of the Winchester Gun Club in 2004 and is still the Gun Club Manager. He was elected to the WGC Board of Directors in 2004 and still serves as a Board Member. He was elected President of the Winchester Gun Club in 2012 and served thru 2015. To this day, Gary continues to oversee all the operational needs for all the VTA shoots as well as all the WGC shoots. He makes sure that both the facilities and equipment are always in top notch condition for all the shoots.

His qualities of longevity, integrity, reliability and outstanding leadership have made a significant impact on the Gun Club. He is an exceptional role model for both new as well as long time members of the gun club and VTA. He demonstrates a true devotion to the promotion of a successful VTA.

Gary maintains the traps to a high degree of excellence, WGC has the best background and shooting facilities in the Commonwealth. He is there before every shoot to check equipment and set targets. During the shoot he keeps an eye on the line and is quick to respond to problems. He even has the ability and skill to manufacture trap machine parts. This is a financial benefit to the WGC.

Management involves more than facilities and equipment. Over the years as manager Gary trained many young people to be the trap “help”. This training involved more than teaching a person how to score, and load traps. He has the ability to mold these young people into responsible and respectful human beings. These are life skills will follow these WGC “kids” throughout their lives. Gary is hands on. He willingly takes on any task, and doing so, makes everyone’s job easier..
