Hall of Fame Inductee
William (Bill) Langer
We will induct William Langer into North Dakota’s Marksmanship Hall of Fame and hope that you can join us.
We will recognize Bill’s efforts and commitment to improve the shooting sports in North Dakota from his home in the very small community of Perth, ND
What is unique about Bill’s accomplishments is something that had not been previously done in North Dakota.
Bill was instrumental in the introduction of the shooting sports into the Wolford Public School System. Bill established the Wolford Wolves Shooting Sports Team. Members of that team were thus able to compete in State Championships, Regional and National Championships with the full support of the Wolford Public School System. He is now attempting to do something similar in the St. John, North Dakota school system, and we wish him the best in that endeavor.
It is Bill’s devotion to the promotion of light rifle and air rifle as well as air and smallbore pistol programs for youth that has really made a mark on the future of the shooting sports in North Dakota.
