The GRAND will be in SPARTA for the next decade. Gipson is rubbing Jacks nose in it.
I sure hope it stays there
No matter how much the ata has to pay the state to keep it there
Jack turned 'em down at least once. Jack is a heckuva smarter that that dope Gipson. Some say the water in IL can affect a persons logic.Others say Gipson has scuffed knees right now. Based on the number of entries not many shooters care if it's held in Sparta.
They begged Jack. How do you know?
None of your business what and who I know.
You HOPE? Or you're sure?
If they do have to cancel it there (I hope they don't) it will just be ANOTHER year do didn't go right? C'mon, you know you only went the first year and that was because it was so close. After that you didn't bother to shoot even one event.
BTW, that staying there for next decade thing? Ever hear of the SCTP?
How's that working out for that place?
Yeah, nothing to worry about here. Not a doubt in the world the "grand" will be in that place. The politicians won't stand for any more of this pritzker BS. They will stand up and stand together and tell him like it is.
Well, one of them anyway.
"Illinois House removed GOP rep from legislative session after he refused to wear a mask: 'A callous disregard for life' "
"The Illinois state House reportedly voted to remove a Republican lawmaker from a legislative session Wednesday after he refused to comply with a requirement for lawmakers to wear a mask during the special session."
"The state House voted 81-27 to remove Rep. Darren Bailey after he refused to put a face mask on following the chamber voting to adopt the rule, NBC Chicago reported."
"I can not sit in there and be part of just a puppet game," Bailey told reporters after he was removed from the session.
Gov. JB Pritzker (D) rebuked Bailey for not wearing a mask."
"The representative has shown a callous disregard for life, callous disregard for people's health," Pritzker reportedly said. "You just [ask] a doctor [to] tell you why people wear masks in the first place. It's to protect others. So clearly, the representative has no interest in protecting others."
"The vote was bipartisan, with several House Republicans voting in favor of removing their colleague."
"We cannot ignore nor compromise the health and safety of every member in the General Assembly, their family members, and every one of our staffers who work tirelessly for us," House Republican Leader Jim Durkin said, according to NBC Chicago."
"Bailey told reporters outside the session he had also refused to take a coronavirus test, according to NBC Chicago. The outlet noted tests were not required, but lawmakers were reportedly asked to take a test."
"Other Republican state lawmakers reportedly threatened not to wear masks, but later conceded that they would if the rule were adopted."
Those people know how to stick together.
I still think they will have the "grand" at that outpost. Money in ILLnews talks. All the ata has to do is cough up enough money, say maybe give the state enough to cover all the wages for the state employees that have been taking care of the joint? Or pay for ANYTHING the state tells them they want and bingo, the "grand" goes on.
WSRC is re-opening end of this month. Grand is looking better now.
One could say it was "moving in a fantastic direction?"
Pull and Mark, I am unable to reply to your PM. Says I must post in the thread and can not reply to your PM?????
The grand in the State of Illinois is nothing short of a whored out version of what the grand once was and will never be again ... The name in and of it self did not make the Grand the Grand, the attendance did and it has not been duplicated (or even close) since it left Ohio ... The clubs that have the facilities to host the grand in actuality do not need the grand to survive and seem to be doing quite well without having to work magic and make the Grand, Grand once again ... The numbers drop off annually because of the location in Illinois and would no doubt improve dramatically if and when the shoot gets moved to any other facility ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
The Corona Virus will be another excuse for the attendance taking a hit, any excuse is better than none at all ... Trump 2020 ...
