Went to Paris Tn last weekend for the JR Olympic tryouts.. My youngun (in the green with the green gun) Got the silver medal.. we are all really proud of her!! A little side note which means nothing but we learned a lesson from it.. On Saturday on her last round she shot a 22.. Me, her, her mom, and grandmother were of course all keep her score.. The next morning when the offical scores were posted, she was scored a 21.. we asked for and looked at the original score sheet and it said 21.. we were still all happy.. what is 1 target?? right.. well, The gold winner beat her by 1 target.. Like I said.. we learned a lesson, and the young lady who won the gold is the daughter of a couple I met at SCTP coach class back in the winter, they are wonderful people and I and tickled for them! thanks!

Thanks, blkcloud. I'm in Shelby County - don't know why I haven't heard of it. I'd heard the nearest bunker trap to us was in St. Louis. I'll Google it and see what I can find out. I assume it's okay for an old trapshooter to drop by and try his hand at bunker?

Sadly this was shot on wobbles. There is a bunker in Mongomery County Tn but it's a POS Promatic system that has never worked. Promatic can't ot won't fix it. A shame to see such a facility go to waste especially where there are kids like this to shoot it.

These kids will get a real wake up call when they go to Colorado Springs and shoot a real Bunker.

Tom,

What's wrong with Promatic? Is it the electronics or the machines themselves? Binghamton, NY's bunker had some computer issues and Promatic said it wasn't their problem...but Rick Chordash got it squared away (I think). If it's the electronics, it's not (technically) a Promatic problem - although they did sell the electronics along with the 15 machines. What's the story? -John W.

I understand it's the electronics that Promatic supplied.

I disagree that Promatic is only responsible for the traps as they sold this as a system so they are responsible for all the items.

TBaber: Been to Montgomery County with my SCTP team and I have seen what you are describing. The facility, although certainly large enough, just didn't seem able to really run an event that size efficiently. Plus it's out in the middle of nowhere regarding food and hotel rooms. You have to go to Clarksville to eat or rest. Guess that's why the Tennessee State SCTP Shoot is in Nashburg this year although in my mind it's no better in many ways!

The bunker does not run as I understand it. Sparta is in the middle of nowhere and they run a good shoot so what is the problem other than the broken Promatic bunker.

There may not be many getting a real wake up call.. out of 110 entries only 3 kids qualified to go to Colorado. They shot 125 targets and you had to score a 110 to get a invite..

I understand that the top 2 or 3 get an automatic invite no matter the score and I would hope that more than 3 kids shot 110/125 on a wobble. Have they been shooting wobble trap for practice?

I don't understand this and no disrepect meant to you or our daughter's accomplishment. But why would a qualifying event for bunker be run on a wobble field? Aren't the International targets themselves (thicker, smaller), angles, speed, loads allowed completely different? A gun capable of two shots.

Not the only state that does this....

As example, I think Florida this year is not having the trap championship at Gator. The only club in Florida that has a bunker.

A proper wobble trap throwing to 76meters like bunker can be a good simulation of a bunker. The problem is that most facilities don't have the ground level wobbles or throw to the proper angle or distance as required. Its really shame because they have a bunker in the state and it could have been shot on that except its broke and Promatic cant or wont fix it.

I dont know why the scores we so bad.. A bunch of the kids, including the girls gold winner actually have this range as their home range, our kids didnt have any wobble practise to speak of.. maybe 1 day.. To me it seemed the machines were throwing the targets way faster than they did last year.. I'm sure they were the correct speed but if you didnt hit them on the first shot.. well the second shot 75% of the time was wasted.. all were required to shoot 7/8 oz loads. I would like to know the answer to this question myself from someone who knows..

Doc...

I feel no disrespect so no apologies are necessary. My point is that we need more bunkers in this country and to have one right there in Tennessee and not be able to use it for this event is disturbing.

The reason that they used wobbles in Florida and not the bunker at Gator is complicated. Not the least is that the SCTP people did not ask. Previously Gator had hosted the shoot but the SCTP people chose not to attend. We are trying to rectify that problem by hosting a "Day at the Bunker' in a few weeks. The first round for in state Juniors will be free.

Bunker is the toughest clay target game in the world and some avoid it for that very reason.

TB,

I wouldn't be blaming Promatic on this one...

Here's the real story the help told me last year "the bunker was used by TWF to hold a class and when they left the system was never correctly shut down and a lightning took out the computer."

It could have been prevented had someone been smart enough to shut down the field!

Since that time I've heard story about story: 1) don't have the money to replace it 2) unable to schedule the work done 3) low priority

rhymeswithorange,

I think you're pretty accurate in your description of bunker, but the TN SCTP program gives youth a broad exposure to shooting trap, skeet, sporting clays, and limited bunker(wobble). It's up to the coaches to take their kids to a location to practice.

Good Shooting, TNCoach

Being a volunteer at MCSC, I have first hand knowledge that two firearms were donated to replace the damaged computer last fall. The firearms were to be raffled off to buy the new computer. So far, no one there can say when the Bunker field will be up and running.

No fund raiser has been scheduled, no tickets have been sold, and, to this day, a dealer in Montgomery County still has the guns on his books, waiting for something to happen.

Perhaps after the Tenn State Sporting Clay Championships next month, they will get the Bunker up and running.

This is also my favorite game. I wish they would get it fixed, but I know and respect every one involved at the Complex. I have nothing bad to say about any of them.

Why the delay in getting it fixed? Is the controller that expensive, what type of control is it. I cannot see where it would be anything very exotic as it only fires 15 traps. Are each traps functions provided for at each trap?.

A lot of times lightning will burn one component of the machine control and proves to be a relative easy fix. Service techs are encouraged to make their service calls productive.

Promatic supplies a cheap unreaiable French made controller with their systems. Why they are not offering a spare while this one is being fixed is unknown. This system has been down for almost a year as I understand.

TB,

"Shooting Coach" dontated the firearms and has donated hundreds of hours to MCSC, but it doesn't seem like the political structure at the club is concerened with getting the bunker up and running.

It's easier for them to blame Promatic than it is provide a bunker to the public, but right now the whole place is a waste of tax payer money.

I've heard too many different stories about MCSC. I only know that former Senator Doug Jackson was instrumental in it's conception and that TWF (TNSCTP) invested a substantial amount of money to toward the purchase of the machines.

Chad W did tell me "TWF bought the bunker and knew nothing about it being down."

Only God knows the whole story...

Gentlemen,

The bunker is still down for the count. I heard somemore promising news last week, but nothing happening very fast...

The closest field to Tennessee is the one near St. Louis, but you'll have to persuade some Lindenwood coach to get some range time.
