    Sorry Allen, the ATA changes every year. It might be nice to have a year when it did not change.

    Pat you are right. Except the changes are never changes in the best interest of the sport. Only in the EC and that does not get us any improvement. - Jim

    benz, I suppose this is meant to critical of the ATA for not changing. But it's just a stupid post. Insulting, in fact. You seem to think you know what to change. But are so far ahead you won't even share your plan. You and so many others here. Typists who think that whatever they type counts. It doesn't. And as I have said before, Trapshooters.com talks exclusively to itself. Nothing written here will ever change anything unless taken into the real world, which this surely isn't.

    I've changed plenty at the ATA. I did it not by sitting on my ass and sniping from my keyboard, but, for starters, defining my goal and writing every delegate. I'd already run for delegate and won, but it's been done without that.

    So, benz, if you know it all, put it on paper and share it with us. My address is in the average book.

    I'll read it. If the ATA doesn't do it, I guess it means you don't know how to convince people. That is not, actually, not our fault; it's yours.

    Neil

    Not really, benz, just pointing out how worthless the stuff you post is. I had a little free time and thought I'd bring a little reality to this site.

    Have you decided on what you want to change and how you are going to go about getting it done? Or are just yet another TS.com gasser? As long as you are here, share with us your plans.

    I have many friends at the ATA that I trust to talk to. Thanks for the offer though. Allen

    OK Neil, you win. I'm a good guy I just don't work and have to borrow a gun and shells to even shoot. I'm paid up this year but do you think you could get me a free ATA membership next year? Please. Sincerely Allen

    In English, the term "pride" referes a sense of self-respect, a refusal to be humiliated as well as joy in one's accomplishments. In this sense, "pride" is among the most-quoted themes of political and societal discourse of English-speaking nations, especially of the United States. "Arrogance" thy name is ATA!

    Allen, I see you had a good day fishing. Looks like you reeled in a whopper. Keep your powder dry and your hook wet. LOL

    I agree, if you have a gripe, let ATA know and also your idea as to a solution. They will listen.
