Western States Match – Team Dillon

Long before Mike Dillon’s departure the men and women of Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club had begun planning an annual event that draws competitors from around the country.  The 14th annual Western States Single Stack Championship, which is preceded by the Western States Revolver Championship, was to be held later that same week.  As usual Dillon Precision was a sponsor.  Mike, and later his son Steve, had always been supportive of the shooting sports and had been in as a sponsor of the Western States match for many years.  Team Dillon was spread out over 2 squads but they weren’t the only ones sporting Dillon t-shirts that weekend.  Super squad member Rob Leatham gave a very moving speech in memory of Mike during the awards ceremony.  We won’t cover the entire speech but we do have something we’ll post tomorrow that covers one story that Rob told about himself and Mike taking a trip up north.  For now we hope you enjoy this photo gallery of Team Dillon and quite a few others wearing Dillon Blue, and sometimes black, during the match to honor Mike Dillon.
