    We need ALCOHOL FREE CLUBS. Now that Neil is Pre's he should bann ALCOHOL at all ATA clubs. Just think, you will not walk in to a room full of drunks waving around a loaded gun in everyones face. There is no where to go at a club where you can get away from it. What is a guy to do?

    Run for club president on a platform of banning alcohol. Go to a different club. Move to a new area. There are lots of clubs around here that don't allow alcohol. Bill Malcolm

    I would join the club and start drinking ... why be the one of the few instead of being one of the many?

    If our little club stopped serving we would have to shut the doors in six months or throw $8 dollar targets.

    My favorite quote:

    “Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a bureaucracy.”

    I'll rise to the bait....

    If I want to shoot I go to a Range. If I want to be around a bunch of drunks I'll go to a bar. Some clubs have far more drunks than shooters. Neither a safe environment or one that shows the shotgun sports in a good light. You can joke about alcohol all You want but it is a problem at some Clubs.

    So if you ban beer from the clubhouse all the drunks will sit in their motor homes and drink their own beer. At least the club gets a piece of the action the way it is. Please tell us how many accidents have occurred on the Trap range resulting from alcohol consumption! Most of the beer drinking trapshooters I know are impossible to detect visually. This is not an amateur group!!

    Ditto what the Lumper! Where would all the fun be without a bunch of drunks waving guns all over the place?

    Oleolliedawg, Correct me if I am wrong, but I remember a shooting maybe 3-4 years ago where they were shooting hdcp. and a long yardage shooter shot someone in the head in front of him. I read there was alcohol involved. This was not a ATA shoot.
