    Hey we were there. That was us shooting up on bank 7. We went up on Wednesday and couldn't figure out why no one came, the weather was so nice; then we tried to go to Shamokin for ice cream....grin

    I guess sometimes I can be a little clueless but I do wish in posts like this one that folks would give a little insight into what they are talking about. What are these pins and why was nobody there and where is this taking place? Just wondering?.....BUD

    Bud...

    The Westy Hogans is the last ATA shoot held each year (I think in September) at the State facilities in Elysburg in Pennsylvania.

    Each shooter gets a little hat pin when they register. Some people actually collect them.

    Last year's event was canceled because major flooding in that part of Pennsylvania closed roads, washed away towns and campgrounds and killed at least 8 people.

    Thanks unknown one for the comeback and info NoW I understand what this is all about. Just wish it would have been a lot better news for everyone involved. Just when we think we may have things in hand, mother nature sure can come along and lay on a lesson in humility. Hope everyone in PA HAS BEEN RECOVERING AS WELL AS IS POSSIBLE.....BUD

    Thanks, Keller for pitching in, Here's the story; but there's lots more. The pin, spoken of, is depicted in the photo, and they are, in fact, very collectible.
