    When I arrived at our local club this morning, I noticed one of my friends had left his lights on. I entered the clubhouse and said, "Jim, you left your car lights on." Well, all hell broked loose. The club president, standing behind the desk, rebuked me severely. He informed me (loudly) that this was a trap club and that statements or conversations that were not trap related, would not be tolerated.

    He further informed me that an ATA rule concerning this subject was in the works and would be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

    I wonder what that was all about.

    It's already in the 2008 book, Blue. Look for it in the new section "Hanging Offenses." I suggest that you, in particular, become throughly familiar with it.

    I can't find my 2008 rule book yet but if that's in there my card will be cut in half this afternoon.

    The ATA, Armature Trap Accountants will not tell me what I can talk about in my club.

    "Me in particular?" I, along with others, just think a little levity, in most situations, doesn't harm anyone. Some orange juice often helps the castor oil go down easier.

    I didn't mean mine seriously either, Blue. We apparently have to be _really_ careful around here . . .

    You're right, Neil. "Tongue in Cheek" comments can be taken wrong.

    Peace, everyone. Blue

    Holy Smoke, even a dumb farmer like me figured it out to be tongue in something anyway. I think Jerbear was playing with you guys, he's quicker than that. Ben

    The "Armature Trap Accountants" was coined by a few at my club that did not renew their membership. I haven't shot many ATA events as I did last year by this time and may not even make my 1000 target minimum this year. Other things have come before shooting and the cost of registered targets have made those shoots a lower priority. Birds have gone up and shells as well.

    I have more fun on the sporting clays course Joking with my kids and friends and league trap and skeet then burning through a $100 bill for a registerd shoot.


    yes I was making fun as well as Neil and Blue but with the estamated cost of $3.50 a gallon of gas this summer, fishing is starting to look more afortable to spend time with my kids.

    Devilsadvocate made a good observation

    I had no problem figuring it {Blue's and Neil's posts] out either.

    And of course Jerbear was just putting icing on the joke, on his slowest day he is too quick to miss the original humor.

    In the past, the "problem" posts were never subtle, or gentle joshing. Most of them [posts/threads that gave the Mods <i>et. al.</i> heartburn were far from subtle. The words overt and glaring leap to mind.

    This post is hate free.

    nomderf said;

    "Tons of good info and some really great people. However there was a mutual admiration society that crept in like a cancer.

    It amazes me that folks are whining and crying about the mods creating a structure to eradicate the foolishness that has gone on for months and years."


    That pretty well sums it up,,all of it.

    Derf, I think we let it get out of hand, so on my part, I apologize if I have offended you. I try to answer threads with a light heart and a little good humor. Mike.
