    Sounds like a very nice club. Can't imagine what the insurance is going to cost. Jon

    Went this morning and signed the rent papers for the Mississippi Coast Convention center for the 15th of Dec. membership drive. Nov. 19th we have invited all media with in 150 miles of us to a presentation and pick up their media packets. 10,000 invitations are being mailed plus email blasts all over the state for our event. We will only sell 1000 platium memberships and 2000 other. 562,000 hunting and fishing licenses sold in Mississippi. 125,000 archery shooters in the state. I meet with the top archer tomorrow at the site. We could sell out just with archery members. We will have your answer for you by the first of the year!I am a trap shooter but no way any of this happens with just trap.

    I will tell Dad you said hello, he is doing fine. He said I hope you build this before I die, I said I hope I build it before I die!! It has been absolute hell getting this put together, one day when you have 5 or 6 hours I will be glad to share the story.

    There are 55 registered trap shooters in MS. This club will boost that number, good luck guys! Is this the club Lenny Sawyer was working with?

    Less than $40,000.00 a year. Take into consideration the buildings alone are over 30,000 sq.ft. and we are located in hurricane alley. The wind coverage is over half of that price.

    Part of the problems and delays we have had are wetlands issues. We have to midigate 3.31 arces for the trap fields. Ratio is 3 to 1 and the cost per credit is $12,000.00. I will do the math for you 3.31x3=9.93x 12,000= $119,160.00 to fill in for the trap fields.Just no room for skeet,not at that price.Had to make a choice and trap shooters won.

    See reply to no skeet? Have you priced a bunker trap? How do you make that cash flow?

    Would you consider building this in Indiana? We need a new place.

    Congratulations and good luck! It is always good to see one open, rather than one close. This is good news.
