    Does anyone know of a directory of International (Bunker) trap locations in the USA? I know of only one in GA, and that is at Ft. Benning.
    Many thanks,
    Neil

    RE: Maidstone

    Is it a 15 machine bunker or three machine bunker.

    Thanks

    Joe...

    The Maidstone bunker consists of the 15 machines that came out of Palm Beach. Jim Meyer was an investor in the PBTS Club and when it was sold he got the Matarelli machines. His daughter Cynthia has been the prime mover in getting this bunker built.

    go to the dead target school website and click on "where to shoot" - this is the most comprehensive list of international shooting facilities in the USA.

    Note that the Dead Target School list is not exhaustive, but it does a great job of summarizing the normally available bunkers (There are a few privately owned bunkers). Some bunkers are operated by a separate group under the club's umbrella that shoots on their own schedule and you will have to contact that group if you want to shoot bunker at that club.

    Suggest you call and confirm the bunker will be available when you plan to arrive and that someone will be there then to make sure it works for you. Make sure you get assurances that it is currently working before you go.

    Interesting enough I believe they are building one at Cardinal Center Camp where the Ohio State Association makes its home. They have the field smoothed out and the hole already dug. Not exactly sure but this is what we were told and it sure looks like a bunker set up last week. motordoc

    Excellent news on the Ohio bunker.

    I understand Tennessee is working on installing two bunkers and if Lindenwood gets their new shooting center constructed we will have 3 more dots on the map.

    Great news.

    I've updated my posted page based on your postings.

    If anyone has a line on Tennessee and if bunkers are under construction, drop me a line an I will add them to the list.

    Always looking for updates or corrections....

    As suggesed above, aways contact the club prior to making a visit as the bunker may not always be available. Many clubs don't reply to email for whatever reason so you may have to telephone.

    That San Antonio location gives Texas an embarrassment of riches when it comes to bunker.

    riches being a relative term - we still pale in comparison to the italians.

    think about this - the italina junior program has 400+ shooters. the laws of averages suggest that 4-6 of that group will turn out to be world class athletes and they will dominate the sport for decades to come.

    our kids (usa) struggle for access to facilities and then there is no real organized level of competition (league shoots and so forth) and really little to no financial support. the kids that are involved in our junior program are a talented group of kids but man what dedication it takes to stay in the sport.

    Only americans are arrogant enough to call a sport in which they are the only ones to participate a "world" championship.

    You keep flappin' your gums there newb. Lots of noise - not much signal.

    Their is a new bunker in Birmingham, Alabama. It is only a year old. It has 15 brand new Materelli machines. I shoot their all the time. It is very tough because of the background, but very fun

    RE: Alabama

    That would be Southern Skeet & Trap, yes?
