    I just saw on the news that WTA Willmington Trap Club Delaware had a major fire destroying at least the main building and possibly the squadding/cashiering building also. News stated 2 buildings were involved.

    That's terrible. I hope it all works out. Our sport and clubs need to grow, not shrink.
