It is with
regret that I must report the loss of one our long time
shooters. Marisa Hogan of Bulverde, Texas passed away on or
about January 18, 2018.
Marisa was a long time IPSC and USPSA shooter. She
participated in many local, regional and international
matches and was the founder of the “Texas Steel Match
Competition” held at the Cedar Ridge Shooting Range in
Bulverde, running the club for many years until her health
began declining several years ago. Known by many of her
friends and competitors as a “Fiesty Italian”, she will be
missed by the shooting community.
More details as they become available.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Remember
