    Simple question why was the Ohio Delegate letter thread closed?? Looked like a good discussion to me. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Probably too much name calling.

    David probably considered it personal attacks.

    We would probably be better off to criticize the position, or the job, rather than using ones name.

    Most of us know who's who, or should.

    Just my opinion.

    Don,
    I don't know why, but I would assume when you start listing names and calling
    them thiefs on a public forum with out prove, it would boarder on a slander lawsuit.Just my opinion.

    Yep, I agree on name calling.

    Also, there are so many rumors out there right now about ATA Office moves, rules, reductions, it was bound to get out of hand.

    This my friends, is going to be the "Wait and see what comes from the EC next" sort of year. I have a feeling there is a lot more "Behind the scenes" activity going on than the average member or Delegate knows about..Yep, Transparency at it's finest!

    This should be everyones New Years Resolution..

    Lets all just go and shoot, have a good time with friends, and as long as the EC doesn't kill our wallet, let them worry about what to do next with the organization.


    And As Brad has decided, it isn't going to change, so why fight it?

    Shotgunpeople, I never said I wasn't going to fight for trap shooting I just don't think the ATA will change its ways. Big Don maybe the internet won't take you and me on the same side in ATA matters. Brad

    Brad, I'd like to think you are mistaken, but I suspect you're not. Too bad, there's an awful lot of great people in the sport.

    Scooter, take a look at the bottom of the reply box and pay special attention to the last sentence. Just in case you can't find it here it is cut and pasted....

    Since everyone who needed a reduction will be getting it wouldn't this be a good time to go to 3 hole, 50 yard equivalent targets. Maybe some who are considering refusing the reduction would take it with a new (old) target rule. JRM

    If the members are not happy with the ATA then maybe it is time for another organization.

    Why don't you get that started. Keep us up to date on your progress.

    There are only a very few members not happy with the ATA. Members may be unhappy with decisions made but only the really bitter ones are looking to tear the ATA down. We've heard about this "new organization" for a long time & nothing has ever come of it yet.
