    Hello:
    After a long wait, the big day has finally come for the Wisconsin trapshooters to have their state shoot at their new home grounds.

    Good luck to all of you, and my hope is that you will all shoot above your average. While at the shoot, it would be a nice gesture to give a sincere thank you to all the fine people who worked so hard to make this dream come true.

    I have a feeling that this particular shoot will bring back friendships that may have been previously strained during this long process.

    It's a new beginning for Wisconsin shooters. I would shoot with pride knowing that someday you will be able to tell a story to your grand children that you actually shot at the very first state shoot held at our new home grounds.

    Good luck to all.

    Good for the Wisconsin shooters.

    I hope they have warm sunny weather, calm winds and high scores.

    I like the flag pole made from a pine tree. Fitting.

    I'm not sure what all of the bashing is all about but its appears to be quite impressive to say the least ... Best of Luck and hope all the good shines down upon the club and those involved before, during, and after to get er done ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    LOL, but cheese especially Cheddar here in Wisconsin is sacred. Long live the cheese and our farm girls.

    Congratulations, my Badger friends! You should be very proud of yourselves. I wish I could shoot with you in your first shoot at your new home. I'll be there next year, though. BCRoach.

    Great pics , But you have to see it in person it is just breath-taking the people who worked there a-- off should be very happy and proud,I hope the people who were filled with negative comments will make it up and see what has become a treasure for all state shooters.

    Wonderful trap grounds, Great people, beautiful area!

    Even in the heat you can see that the shooters are very happy with what is already a great place. The future looks very bright indeed for our trap shooting Wisconsin brothers and sisters.

    Good job Wisconsin!
