California Trapshooting Association was originally founded in 1915 by Col. O. N. Ford. The Association conducted shoots during this period of time. However, the first official written document dated June 20, 1920, is from Col. O. N. Ford concerning perpetual purses. He was apparently the ex-official President, Secretary and Treasurer until the association was officially organized on July 27, 1935, and C. W.. Wood was elected President and O. N. Ford was elected Secretary.
