    Brian,

    There are shells available at the club, after factoring the sales taxes here, those cheaper wally world shells, will cost about the same as what the club charges.

    Where to stay?

    TO start I live near Prince Rd off of Flowing Wells RD, it takes me right at 30 minutes to get to the club.

    From the Hotels at the Airport it well take around 30 minutes to get to the club.

    The BEST quarunteed place to stay would be (520) 670-0500
    Starr Pass Golf Suites, this is 20 minutes maybe less from the club.

    The Hotels along the freeway, I-10 are almost all Known chains, so you would pretty much know what to expect.

    I hope this helps.

    The Country Inn & Suites hotels, one at the airport and one off I10 and about the same distance as the airport, both offer special "shooter rates". Both nice places.

    try the link for some B&B places....better than a motel and likely much safer too!

    There is no sales tax at the Tucson Trap Club.

    If there is it priced into the price you see for an item to be purchased.

    Just like buying gas, the price on the pump includes tax.

    That maybe so that comsumers don't flip a wig over what that tax amount is!

    Al Lingham,

    I was just looking at the B&B rates, they very some, from $219 high end to right at $100 low end.

    Of those listed all but for are in the West University Nieghborhood,

    the one on south scott is a block from the main police station

    the one on Main is in one of the oldest historic upscale areas of town!
    A 20 to 30 minute drive to the club.

    As Tucsonan, I will try to help, with in reason, anyone coming to town, trap shooters are at the top of my list.

    As I resident, I do not often, you can even say never stay in a hotel here.

    I get to hear all the complaints.

    That Country Inn & Suites, advertizes in the program and does the shooters good is a given.

    But I tend to look at the whole city, and may give extra imfo, and build on suggestions that others make.

    If you have question, need imfo, or want someone to eye ball, maybe get pictures or fliers from a business or attraction, if I have the time, I will try to my city proud!

    Much lower costs in November...not "high" season.
    And thanks, Al, as always for your help.
