We note the passing of longtime member Jay Sonneborn Sr (07/24/39-03/23/20). Jay earned the Distinguished Smallbore Prone Rifle Award in 1982, a year after shooting a perfect 1600 in competition, a feat equivalent to a baseball pitcher throwing a no hitter. He later shot a 3200, a no hitter in baseball parlance, the only Connecticut marksman to ever have done so. He was a member of the 1994 US National Championship Any Sight Team. Individually, he won the US National Intermediate Senior Championship in 2001, and followed that with three US National Senior Metallic Sight Championships. Jay represented the US in international competition as a member of the US Dewar Trophy Team as a rifleman and the team’s coach, and captain. In recognition of both his skill as a rifleman and contributions to the sport, he was inducted into the Connecticut Shooters’ Hall of Fame in 2006. He contributed greatly to shooting’s future as a junior team coach and was generous in sharing his insight and knowledge with any who might be interested in learning more about the sport and its history.  He will be missed !
