    Pictures from today of the Ohio State Shoot held at the Cardinal Shooting Facility.

    These pics do not give credit to the actual site. This place is AWESOME! I expected to meet nice people and was surprised not only to meet nice people, but also to meet people that were genuinely nice if you know what I mean. . .

    Spent some time on the bunker trap this morning, oh boy was it hot, but not as humid as the past couple days. . .

    The campground is top notch with corn hole tournaments almost every night from what I understand. . .

    Lots and lots of room with lots of sites for campers with electricity and water.

    I like this place A LOT!!!! Although I didn't get to meet and shake Mr. Fishburn's hand, it is on my to do list.

    Wonderful Stuff!!!

    Nice pics, but your background photos left out the farm buildings right in front of bank 12 where yesterday the farmer was driving his combine around the barn. You missed the photo opp yesterday when the kids on the golf cart started driving along the road in front of the traps. They got past three squads of shooters before they noticed that everyone on the line was yelling at them.It is a nice club, but as with all clubs there is still room for improvement.

    Pennsylvania's trapshooting neighbors to the west of us can be very proud of that facility!

    Three cheers for the trapwife . . . "there is still room for improvement." Noknock1 failed to post pics of underage golf cart drivers and speeding cannot be seen in a photo. Pictures can't release the smell from the brine water they use to put down to control the dust. IT STINKS! The Cardinal Center is a great facility but a little more security should be in place specifically with golf cart traffic. It is getting out of control.

    Also . . . how about leaving the CEB open a little longer? This is a trapshoot and trapshooters want to shoot trap!

    bystander, your sense of smell is truly amazing. I don't know of anyone that complained of any smells, are you sure, it was not yourself that you were smelling? HA HA

    Also as far as me not taking pictures of all of these "incidents," well all I can say is I am just an average Joe with an LG Cell Phone that happens to take pictures as I forgot my "real" camera.

    I just took general pictures, trying to focus on my flip open phone with the blaring sun, I can honestly say that I did not "witness" the terrible incidents that have been described by some and NOT take a picture. . . in order to "preserve" some sort of perfect picture. . . pun intended.

    So I didn't mean to start any controversy here, I just posted some pics of an outstanding shooting facility that a buddy and myself visited.

    All I can say is if you don't like it, don't go back. Sometimes common sense isn't so common. . .

    There today (Friday) hard to believe but it is getting better and it is improving.

    What some people forget is while it is possible to make something fool proof, Idiot proof is a lot harder.

    There were a noticeable increase in the number of people there today. Will have to find out attendance shooter wise but things were going smooth and quickly at least on my squad.

    Vendors row was bigger also this year but I did notice that the vendors were all selling shot at the same price. Normally there is some competition and one is selling a little cheaper.

    Rock

    Golf carts driven by teens are out of hand. We watched four blockheads in a green four-man EZ Go try to jump a 5' pile of rocks at about 30 MPH last evening. They almost turned over, could have been a disaster.

    Even the scoresheet help drives far too fast. We watched a young lady working the line nearly crash into the back of another cart. She skidded with brakes locked for about 12' before coming to a halt. There's a 10 MPH limit posted all over but there are souped-up golfcarts and four wheel ATV's doing 40+ in the parking lot's. Especially in the evening while the parents of these kids are out eating. Has to be policed or there is going to be an accident.

    Karla's right about the backgrounds. There is an unfair advantage for shooters drawing the four eastern banks. There are at least three completely different backgrounds here. One excellent, one fair and one poor. The place is not perfect by any means. The photos here remind me of resort photos taken to enhance the look of the facility only showing the nicest room then arriving and getting the leaky room overlooking the dumpster.

    When we presquaded this year we received our assigned bank numbers prior to the shoot and we were very happy with our assignments.. When we got here all that had changed somehow and all our banks had been changed, not for the better. What the hell good is it to preqsquad if they're going to change things once you arrive. I think it's called "bait and switch?" We asked for some relief in light of our misfortune and were told we could change to another bank for a fee of $25. each and we would be on the last squad.

    The camping area is nice. Food is good. Targets are well set. Line personnel is excellent. Nice BBQ tonight. Nice and clean and new. All those things are great but somehow I still feel double-crossed.

    noknock1, you did a GREAT job on the pix!!!


    I would bet there are alot of states wish they had a place like this to shoot at, I for one can only dream of something this nice in Wisconsin!! WE shoot in an out house(or shooting in that dumpster Barry speaks of) compared to Cardinal and the OSTA.
