Time for lunch.
Thanks 8 Sisters.
New and next to the pavilion....
Never know who you will see here.
Only one of them burgers ..? Two of everything and a diet coke please ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
Lots of reloading supplies.
Rumor has it there was a semi - official BIG DON sighting. No photos turned in yet! Maybe tomorrow?
The King of Trapshooting! 100,000 targets!
More pictures coming. Need help with pictures. My new parts aren't allowing me to get around as well!
The Cardinal Center has great help on the trapline.
Notice how nice these scorers look ?
Quite a contrast to some I have seen over the years...
Our first trip there in 2010 told us that Mr. Fishburn ran a first rate place, just by the help we saw, and the facility in general.
And there is the Farmstead Restaurant in the background...
And the laundry..God, what a place !!!
Good going CC !
Cute girls and grumpy lookin' old men - gotta be a trapshoot.
Thursday evening around sunset....
He said he caught 42 fish in a short time.
The trap help at Vandalia was OK but not nearly as well trained as the CC line crew. jmho
The view from the International Trap.
Mr. Fishburn with OSTA Secretary, Noreen Snively, inside the Hall of Fame.
None of you fellas have a BIG DON picture? slackers
All Kentucky squad.
Great pics! I was there yesterday morning, shot a couple practice rounds and left. Great facility they have.
Cute girl scorers and a drivers license.
The downfall of many a young male Trapshooter that thought the only thing in life that mattered was breaking a hundred little round orange things.
Thanks to Olliedawg and Littledawg for helping me get around. Littledawg is getting big.
Mommadawg getting her game face on.
This guys thought I was too close. Olliedawg has a way with these guys and he let us take a picture.
This min pin was much friendlier than he looked.
Gus the Cocker and his family near bank 3.
A proud owner of a Butler.
Is this a BIG DON sighting? Not so sure.
Quick stop in HOF building.
Dave Berlet You are a real Competetior, Gentleman and Friend,
That is the real BIGDON is all of his splendor and glory and still trying to master that Silver Seitz!
I wonder if he stopped to genuflect at the BRICK
Probably Bless's himself and makes the sign of the cross every time he walks by it with his head bowed down .... WPT ... (YAC) ...
At least he was there - that's more than either one of you can say.
That is very true, sometimes plans change with Doctors appointments and such, a shoot was never and will never be more important than follow ups on my wives breast cancer ... I'll give you that one LEFTY, by the way were you there ..? If not why not ..? (TOUCHE) WPT ... (YAC) ...
Nope I wasn't there. SO WHAT?
If I had been able to get time off from this 65 hour per week job I would have asked the same question.
So what! The so what is you always have a smart ass remark or try to cut down a poster. For someone who doesn't go to ATA shoots ought to keep his mouth shut about people that do.
Bill yes I was there.
Some confusing posts? That does not look like BIG DON. Not tall enough. Much heavier than BIG DON. BD is tall and skinny I thought? That guy is a little on chubby side. jmho
The white glove is a giveaway!
Everyone has a hero.
I like BIG DON. Good shooter! If he went to the CC I hope he got the right line to his camper this year.
When the 'dawg says he was at CC you can accept it as God's word!
He was there,I camped right beside him, Not a bad neighbor to have.
"Lefty" ? As in "left out"?
Didn't " BIGdon" come on here when we first started and post under the name "left out".
That tired old, doesn't mean crap, "if you don't go to ata shoots you should keep your mouth shut" line is pure BIGdon. Him and all the other Pom Pom girl ata cheerleaders .
Wrong site "lefty". On here you can post whatever you like. If YOU don't like that,
BTW, what poster did I "cut down" when I mentioned THE brick?
Personally, I do not have a problem with Big Don, he is set in his ways and his delivery is a little abrupt (ruff) but he means no harm ... In any contest there is one winner, some days your the bug, some days your the windshield, so the story goes ... Both of the contestants stood up and shot for a good cause that day, not many others can say they did ... I respect both of them for taking part ... The Hype and build up was better than the actual shoot off ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
I had to stop and consider the word "genuflect". Is that really a word I wondered.
1. Genuflect lower one's body briefly by bending one knee to the ground, typically in worship or as a sign of respect.
2. to wonder WTF happened?
I am thinking it was more like #2. 10 to one odds...not much respect given in the "genuflection". jmho
Time to coin a new phrase...."whattheflexion" to gasp in disbelief and wonder
"what the ---- happened"?
Sorry flyer boy but you're wrong again.
You don't have to apologize "left out "
Flyer BOY? Adding the word "boy" is typical of those "we shoot registered targets and you don't" Kool-Aid drinkers from that other old site. When they can't answer a question they like to play with a sign on name. IMO that isn't the only thing they play with.
Go back and ask one of the 6 or 7 stooges if they can come up with something better. Your attempt pretty much sucked. I'm sure if one of them answers you will see all the "thank you's" that they just can't wait to add.
Ya gotta love it when someone that is a regular poster on the " we love sparta" site drops by to say hello.
Now that you have apologized, and dodged the question, take a whack at answering it.
What poster did I, as you say, cut down by mentioning THE brick?
AND, to use the word "again" means I was wrong once before. Tell me, when was the other time.
While I can appreciate those that say "the ATA is going the way of the Dodo bird" or "I won't go to Sparta or any ATA shoot because the targets are too easy", I can't get behind the people that are not going to the shoots that are in their neighborhood (especially the Cardinal). Why would you boycott the support of the club you seem to be worshiping?? You say that REAL men shoot 45 degree angles and 52 yard targets? Why do they not shoot those at the clubs you seem to immortalize? Why can you not seem to find a club that supports your idea of the REAL target? You can ban me if you want, I don't care. I come here to learn and be taught. So far I have been taught to hate the ATA and everyone that supports them. I thought this was the site that those that really want to keep trapshooting alive were posting? Please tell me that is what you really want.
OK I will bite on that hook. Who is boycotting the CC that is in the area of the CC? Name one or two.
I personally do not know of anyone that is not shooting at the CC or Sparta because of the target settings. Do you?I do not believe you when you say you have learned to hate the ATA on this site. I do not hate the ATA, but I hold in disgust those in charge that are self servers, and are using the ATA funds as their private piggy bank. The ones that put the organization in peril to further their own wants and desires. Target setting while important to the sport is minor compared to the damage that has been done to the checks and balances that should be in place to protect the well being of the organization. I do not know how long you have been around trap shooting, but the members have lost the right to control the direction of the organization.
You use the word hate, do you you mean upset with the ATA. I have never seen anyone on here say they hated the ATA, Please refer to the post you are relating to. Roger C.
If you count the thousands that no longer shoot since the target settings broke the handicap system then he may have a point. Much of registered shooting now is organized practice.
I used "hate" in this post .... if you know the person, you know why that word fits my "feelings" ....
It is supposedly not possible to elevate a shooter to the 27 yd. line in any other way than by earning the move. Are you saying He was moved otherwise? Hate is a very strong word. It also diminishes the stature of the user. Roger C.
Years ago I heard where yardage punches were sent by mail. I never talked with anyone who got one so whether anyone was assigned to the 27 or even if it's true.
Also, someone on this or the other site was talking about Money punches.
If either are true is there some correlation ? Regards.....Gerald
If people want to question my use of "hate", or my "stature" for doing so, please start a new thread. I have no problem owning my words, but not on this thread that is about something else.
"Junior Atwood" is not hard to find, or hard to talk to, so ask him for yourself what was "possible".
I feel I must apologize for posting what I did on this post. I thought I was on
Is there any Gun Clubs that will hold a shoot on Competitive targets. I apologize for posting in the wrong place but not for what I said.
Careful apologizing here. This is a last man standing forum.
Great photos, I wish I was at the CC.. would have been an honor being in the midst of the well known shooters and the GREATS.
User1, My reply was to xtshooter not you. If you fit the catagory that I referred to. That is a personel problem of yours, I do not want to be bothered by it. Regards Roger C.
Moved thread to pictures forum.
