    How's the attendence been so far this year? I know the Western PA Zone shoot was small, I've heard the Keystone Open was way down, as was the Zippo in Bradford the past weekend. How was the Buckeye Classic in Ohio?

    Announcement over the PA said an increase of 17% over last years classic.

    State shoot (Ohio) is predicted to be a larger turnout also.

    A nice place to shoot. Easy access to I-71 and lots of campsites.

    I heard one of the directors say the Buckeye Classic was UP 30% over last year. One beautiful place.

    We are all aware of the financial strains that have increased in the past year, and the negative effect they will have upon tournament attendance in 2008, and beyond.

    The primary reason for an INCREASED attendance at the Buckeye Classic in Ohio is the facility, itself -- pure and simple.

    The Fishburn family has taken a different approach to shooter needs and (even) complaints, by actually addressing the concerns of the participants in the form of changes and improvements. Instead of taking the attitude of "WE run the shoot" or "If you don't like it, stay home", this premier shooting facility has actually LISTENED to those who pay the bills.

    This place will only continue to grow and flourish, with their shooter-friendly way of doing business. I heartedly applaud the Fishburns and their willingness to respond to the opinions of the participants at the shoots in Marengo. There are many other shooting complexes that could learn some valuable lessons from them.

    I know that my discretionary income has dwindled in the past year or so. I also know that it is (solely) my choice and responsibility to spend it as dutifully as possible. The Cardinal Center will definitely be the beneficiary of some of my recreational dollars in 2008.
