    Are there string attached to the $35,000.00? There must be a reason. Roger C.

    Lima50, Big Papa isn't on the board anymore, neither am I. I have no clue what's going on and I doubt that Dick does either. You need a current board member to answer your question.

    You got it right on Brad. For some reason Lima50 is always asking me questions on this website like I know everything going on with the OSTA board. I have no more access to any information than the average shooter. But, if I had to make a quess, I would say Lima50 has some bad information. If I was a betting man, the board would have absolutely no problem finding $120 to get $35,000.00. Lima50, you need to go to the OSTA website, under the contact heading you will find the contact information for all the board members. There you will find the DIRECT contact information right straight to the President of the board. I would bet if you contact Tim he will be able to give you the correct answer. That is always the most direct route instead of this BS you are always putting on this website. So, after you do that, we can expect you to post the correct information on this post. Thanks in advance.

    No way PAPA. I could do that. But then I would not have got at least a little of your opinion. Most of us know you are in the know. I don't need it sugar coated.
    OK we got some information. They can get the money!

    So what is the hold up? OSTA doesn't want the community to have the money since they don't get to control it.
    And thanks for the response BIG PAPA.

    I still got no idea what you are asking about. You can also contact your zone director and ask either of them instead of guessing on this website. What little bit I know about the Potterfield's and any money they put out, it must be used to support youth functions. For example, the OSTA foundation. Can you provide us with a definition of "OSTA doesn't want the community to have the money". I am sure there are folks who would to have some "inside" information, including myself.

    Why do you not ask someone at the C.C. They may know. Roger C.

    Big papa, I've talked to someone about this and what I can get out of this is that to qualify for 35K from the Midway foundation the SCTP teams of a state have to have 33% of their SCTP teams be contributing some money to their own accounts, this would be 12 teams from Ohio and it would only take like 10 bucks a team so this is the 120 dollars mentioned. I don't know what is or ain't going on with this. I think the money (35K) would go to the osta foundation like it has in the past. Maybe Dave Schock can answer us about what is going on.

    Thanks Brad. I have no idea what lima50 is trying to determine. You are absolutely correct about Dave Shock. I am sure he has all the facts and can answer the questions. Maybe lima50 will contact Dave and get the exact straight scoop and post it here for us less informed.

    Big PaPa I'd like Dave to let us all know on here about what's going on, if anything is going on. A yes this is it , or Lima50 is full of shit. Or if not Dave one of my Northwest Zone delegates should post. I always tried to keep Ohio shooters informed about what was going on when I was on the Board by using the internet, whether is pissed off the other board members or not. The shooters have a right to know.

    My recommendation to the OSTA board is don't become the ATA EC and think you don't have to talk to the shooters in Ohio. Trap shooters in Ohio have way to many other options than just ATA registered if they want to just shoot trap. If you don't communicate it will come back and bite you in the ass. Brad Dysinger, past president OSTA.

    Update: This just in......
    Altho I did not get this information from BIG PAPA, I think it may be true. Papa please confirm.

    The OSTA voted to ink the deal with the Potterfields, getting large sums of money for the future youth trapshooters. Great job OSTA!

    Again, PAPA, please confirm this!

    Thank goodness. Did it all come from one place, or did they have to hold several fundraisers?

    I don't care who you are, that's the funniest post I've ever read. One of the heavyweights must have dusted off a 7-11.

    I talked with Dave Shock yesterday at WPAFB. The reason he has not responded to you on here is because he does not remember his pass word and logon!! Brad, you gave the correct information from the information I got from Dave yesterday. Apparently, all of the teams through out Ohio were not responding to anyone about THEIR teams. Some of the teams have decided to drop and/or not participate etc. So, maybe if someone could help Dave with his problem, chances are he will respond.
