    Lauren Mueller is now the WSRC Director. She is an ATA Delegate for Illinois. Her family runs the Brittny club in Illinois.

    Is this a conflict of interest?

    I report. You decide.

    I've been over to the IL state shoot a couple times (hosted at Brittany). Seems at one point the grounds couldn't handle that size of shoot. Now it seems that attendance is actually dropping... Potentially because they outgrew the place and people had foul experiences. Wouldn't Sparta be a better option to move the state shoot to? But then again, surely she wouldn't be an advocate and present something to the state about moving the shoot from her family's place to her new place of employment.... would she??? Conflict there....

    You report. I decide.

    The Illinois state shoot should move to Sparta. Illinois should support the ATA and Sparta since its in Illinois. Illinois politics??

    You Illini can fight that out. I would think you would want a delegate representing your organization not someone under the thumb of the state or Gipson. IMHO. But I remember Gipson saying how much he distrusted a delegate from Illinois. I think the argument was whether the US Open belonged to the ISTA or was under Gipson’s control.

    I am guessing that back then Lauren would have supported her delegate on that issue. How about now?

    If attendance gets lower at Sparta the grand can move to Brittany. Her family can run it from that venue.

    "IF" her position is a IDNR position (State) there is a direct conflict of interest, nothing the State of Illinois or ATA would do at this point in time should surprise anyone ... "CORRUPTION" reins supreme as does the Confusion within the borders of the State which is why they all get along so well ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Here is the ATA's Conflict of Interest Policy from 2008.
    It may have been updated or amended since that time.

    Only a truly honest org would have such a clause. Do you think the ATA needs outside advisors on this one?
