How can changes still be made 2 months after the application’s had to be in.
Don was one of the first shooters I remember shooting registered trap with at Winchester gun club back in the 70’s. In all the years I knew him I never heard a angry word from him.
He will be missed by many.

I just received another email from Dick. I am not going to go into details but he’s in really bad condition. Please say a prayer for him and his family. Keep him in your hearts and minds.
As most knew his health hasn’t been good. Things have taken a very bad turn.
Dwight. In the 15 or so years I have been on the team at least 13 of those years letters were sent out. It was the Secretary that sent them out. I would be willing to bet that the majority of the members are not on this site. There are so few people an members that use this site it is a joke. I know exactly how the team is elected. Why should people have to log onto this site to see if they made the team. They may have sent in their application via mail and not email. Why don’t the WTA add a spot for email address to the application. They could at least send a email to those that have it. Believe it or not, not everyone has email.
Oh and it does bother ME that no notification was given. This should be something that is important. It used to be.
In the past 20 years or so that I have made the state team 14 or 15 times a letter has been sent out to the people that made the team from the WTA congratulating them. Was a letter sent out. Not everyone looks at this site. I would not have known about the team had someone not emailed me and congratulated me.
Final chapter. So it looks like the end of what was at one time THE place to shoot. I for one will miss it.
I think they need to be refigured. I missed both the HOA and HAA by one.
I have talked to my Director and will talk to my other one also. I’m pretty sure by now Fritz knows also.
After talking to several shooters and a couple of SCTP shooters parents I have found that they all agree with me completely. The parents even went so far as to say they would be willing to pay more or at least pay a $5 membership fee even if they only shoot this one reg. shoot. But they also said that if there is a increase that it should go to the WTA not the SCTP.
You know me and how our differences go. This isn’t the first time you and I have disagreed about something. I think we are both adult enough (at least you) to get past this. I will be just fine next week. My shooting. That’s another story.
The WTA negotiate with the SCTP for the price. Only after that does the WTA set the price.
I am waiting to hear how much profit they maid. And profit shouldn’t only be based on income and targets, and salaries to the help. What about wear and tear on the bunker, the trap machines, clean up, real estate taxes. You know kind of the way WGC used to charge.
Payment is due the morning of the shoot. At least it was a couple of years ago. I wouldn’t believe the BOD would have changed that. Why would they. Like I said when everyone else shoots they have to pay before on target is thrown.
If the facility can’t survive on one shoot a year how can it survive on two shoots a year at a price that is 20% lower than what the rest of pay. And where would the SCTP go. Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan? Yes they get 3 free campsites it is in the minutes from earlier this year.
And Fritz is incorrect. It does belong to the members of the WTA. Who paid for it? And who is still paying or it with memberships, daily fees, maintenance fee’s, volunteers, donations and so on. Not the SCTP. Not even the volunteer part.
Brad. So the SCTP made how much per shooter. I think it was around $12 per. And for the average non SCTP shooter now add a $3 a day Wta Fee. A 1 dollar maintenance per hundred. A $10 a year membership fee. So now we are up to about $8 or more for the non SCTP shooter. Then we give them 3 FREE camping spots. What else do we need to do for them. Where are they going to shoot when we close the place down? And we have to maintain the whole facility. Not just sign people up pick score sheets and buy some trophies. And we don’t pay our directors. How many hours did the WTA put in. I will guarantee it was more than the SCTP volunteers. And on top of all that when I go to a shoot I have to pay before I shoot my first target. I know the shooters paid a while before the shoot but the WTA has not been paid AGAIN. They got a partial payment but I would be willing to bet they are still owed at least another 20 grand. As long as they have been using OUR facility they have never once even paid in the same week. Sometimes it has been a month. Did the SCTP have the money up front an before the shoot. Yes. Why can’t they pay on the same weekend. They know how many shooters they had. They know how many targets they used for their other things. I’ll bet the SCTP people that get paid get it on time.

And now if we (the WTA) could make a profit on all those targets that would be a good thing in stead of the SCTP making all the profit.
Or even if the SCTP could bring up 30 people for two days to work around the Homegrounds.
I certainly hope you all find the people that you need. The more bodies you have the easier it makes it for everyone involved. Thank you Dick for stepping up.
Almost looks like one has spots. I saw one at Beaverdam last Sunday during the SE zone. Lots of adults up north but no fawns.
Ha. I started running 2.5 miles back in December of 2016 when I started cardiac rehab after my last by-pass surgery. I’m almost half way through it now.
Thanks Amy. Don’t know where you found the time with a kazilion kids there this weekend.
The building looks really great. The one thing that I took away after seeing it in person was the size. I am so glade they went bigger than what was originally planned. I am also glad that the AC will be in before the state shoot. We a due for a hot one.
In case people didn’t notice it but the things sticking up on the north of the walk way are the light posts bases. The fields right by the new building will have lights.
Great job everyone.
