MSA Raises the Stakes at the 2016 World Championship
The world of mounted shooting witnessed the highest payouts in the sport at the MSA World Championship in Dallas, Texas. There were a lot of great things to announce after this years Worlds and we have saved the best for last. While the MSA stands alone as the only mounted shooting association that guarantees 50% payback on entry fees, our World Championship went even further to lead the sport with the highest percentage payout in mounted shooting history. Our World Championship is our reward for our dedicated members. This year, the MSA paid back 220% of entry fees!
Top ten lists are popular in mounted shooting. While recognition of ranking is important, we know the numbers our members care most about appear next to dollar signs. Our top ten money earners at the 2016 MSA World Championship took home a combined payout of $32,458.37! That is an average of $3,245.84. No other mounted shooting association has ever paid more money to their top ten money earners. A top ten list however, cannot sufficiently recognize the level of success of our members. There were a total of 28 competitors who took home in excess of $1,000. The combined take-home pay from the top 28 money earners equals $58,787.94! That is an average of $2,099.57. It bears repeating that the total payout including cash and prizes was $106,256, not including the complimentary Texas style awards dinner and the home made ice cream donated by Tony Rush.
These payouts reflect the generosity of the MSA payout system that provides opportunity for members of all levels to earn a share of the top payouts in mounted shooting history. You will see members from each division represented on the following list of our top money earners. The MSA tops the list as the most charitable association in the sport of mounted shooting.
