Al Anglace Obituary

We regret to report that Al Anglace, founder of Connecticut Travelers Sporting Clays, has passed away.

In June, 1987, Al Anglace and six friends started a monthly shoot that grew into the Connecticut Travelers Sporting Clays Association, a club that now has over 500 members and a mission to support sporting clays.

Al was a stalwart of the sport, a community leader, and a major influence on the Connecticut Travelers as well as the sport of sporting clays. Hundreds of young people and ladies are shooting today because they got a chance to shoot with the Travelers, thanks to Al’s emphasis on bringing juniors and women into the sport.

His accomplishments included:

  • President of Seymour Fish & Game
  • Boy Scout Shooting Instructor
  • Organizer of NSSF Program “The Art of Skeet Shooting,” which introduced dozens of people to the shooting sports
  • Five-time recipient of Outdoor Life‘s Sporting Clays All American
  • VP and founder of Sporting Clays of America
  • 1998 Clay Pigeon Sportsman of the Year
  • Founder and President of Riverside Rod & Gun Club

We express our deep condolences to the Anglace family.
