    Is it old news that Lynn is the new Exec Dir of the ATA? If so, I guess I missed it on here. Anyway, I wish him well and hope his tenure is a lot longer than his immediate predecessors. Giving up your business to take this job has been a risky proposition in recent years.

    He'll be good. Knows computers, trapshooting, running shoots target setting, works well with others and gun club management. Good head on his shoulders. Will he be moving to Vandalia? Good Luck Lynn.

    Best of luck to Lynn.

    He will be missed at KCTA, one of the best run trap clubs I've had the pleasure to shoot at.

    I hope this move is good for Lynn, and for the ATA.

    Good luck to Lynn, but he hasn't got to worry about moving to Vandalia.

    Looks like Sparta is going to be the new office central, and sooner than you think !

    Since the ATA headquarters will SHORTLY be moving to Sparta, I guess that he'll be moving there.

    Sparta... Oh yeah... quality housing abounds in Sparta. Nite life is conducive to working overtime and whiskey is rationed unless you know a local cooker.

    Nice guy. puts up with my shenanigans... I like the guy a lot.

    Although not knowing him personally, I know many people who speak extremely well of him. I hope this is the beginning of a new era of progress for the ATA. I wish him much success and hopefully great satisfaction as he works in our behalf. Bob

    Saw this in newest issue of Trap and Field that came yesterday. According to magazine, Lynn will be commuting back and forth to Vandalia. When is the ATA moving to Sparta? Will they be on the WSRC grounds or in Sparta proper? Anybody know for sure?

    There was also a 2-page write-up about Mike Hampton in this issue, also.

    Move time frame ?

    It is my understanding that the Eastern Zone Delegates received a letter informing them of the decision to look into the Sparta area. The City of Dayton wants to level the Maintenance building in Vandalia in April.

    We'll have to wait and see exactly what transpires from here...

    I guess it's NOT something that the membership needs to be involved with, so it's on a need to know basis...

    Bob, my edition does not appear to be the same as yours. I can't find an article on Hampton Sr. Are you referring to the two-pager on Jeff Wagner, ATA president?

    I hope he didn't sell his business, he'll need it to fall back on.

    If Lynn can't the job done, it can't be done by anyone. Except maybe by J.C.
