    The deal with the EPA is, if you shoot over wetlands they have all the power.

    You can fight them but it's a long drawn out affair, starting with a $1000 a day fine if you decide to keep shooting after the date they ASK you to stop.

    You can ask for an injunction and go from there...

    In any case, past history.

    We're hoping to have a deal locked up in the next few weeks on final details for the move.

    We received zoning approval on the proposed property prior to final negotiations with the land owner. We have no restrictions on operations except for those we impose on ourselves for good community relations.

    As well as the raffle to raise a few dollars, this past week we opened up the sale of Life Memberships to raise badly needed cash. We have not sold life memberships for 15-20 years...

    At the above link you can purchase a raffle ticket or buy a Life Membership...

    You can deal with me directly instead, if your not comfortable going through the clubs web site. I'm the clubs Chairmen of the Board and a member of the ATA, NSSA and the NSCA.

    One last thing.

    Thanks to the local Budweiser distributer who pulled out all the stops to lend support to the last day closing activites that we have planned for 8 July.
