A question for WI shooters

3753 Views 25 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  halfmile
Hey folks, three months from now is our state shoot at the new homegrounds. Yes the concreat pads are poured. But no houses are in place, no traps installed. No electrical or sewer has been laid or put in place yet. No business plan and word is they are tying to secure a huge loan to pay for what is left to be done. The program is posted on the WI website and it looks like there is alot of fun to be had. In fact I'm looking forward to attending. BUT , SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED???????? I do not have a building background. Can everything be done and ready in three months? I know we won't get nothing but venom and crap from the wta directors who read this but what do you the shooter's who will be attending think. I am concerned and I haven't heard anything about a back up plan should there be issue about it being completed on time.

Should we be concerned ??????

GET TO WORK!!!! What are you doing wasting time wondering, and typing about it! Concern should make you in the least, pick up a shovel and start digging.

How good is your arm? I heard they are signing up people for the hand thrown targets. Issuing free flack jackets, and helmets. Oh, they also are thinking about banning release triggers, just for this year. I think they are concerned that they do not want to discourage the help to early.

This is all in good fun of course, as this issue I think has been tested already.

If you have a building background, what have you contributed to the cause, besides ridicule?

I see it is you DO NOT have a building background. What ever your background is, what have you done to contribute to the solution of your concerns?

Mid- I have no doubt it will eventually be completed. Just a little concerned with only three months to go and lot to be done.

Flyn must be a old WGC hater - bet right now the WGC is looking pretty good !!

Absolutely not. Way off! Though I have not shot there in years, which had nothing to do with the club. Pat has done wonders there from what I seen, and heard. Even through all of the BS. Don't miss the big club politics though either. I enjoy shooting the smaller clubs, and the comradery that goes with those smaller clubs.

You seem to be one of the people upset with the WTA for leaving WGC, and building there own grounds. Are you?

So the point your making, is that the traphouses are in Belvidere, Illinois which is not in Rome, WI. Which means they are not in place ready to have electrical run to them or have pat traps installed in them.

Let me go back to my orginal question. Three months is coming quick. Should we be concerned? Is there a back up plan?

All this derogatory interrogation about the homegrounds is useless. Who cares about your opinion or these "business plans?" Seriously why should I care? Why do you care?

I wish the homegrounds project well. It will get done in good faith and due time. I will support them by shooting there as much as I can. It can only be better than Waukesha. If it does fail (and it wont) at least the WTA can say "we tried." Even if the WTA fails (which it wont) whatever ill just shoot somewhere else.

I am looking forward to this and think it is a great idea reguardless of a "business plan" and if there was one i would never care to read it. Im really looking forward to a 2015 satellite grand at the homegrounds and an international trap bunker. I have had my hotel reserved since feburary for the 2013 state shoot and I believe we will have a great place to shoot.

What club is going to give up their satellite grand so we can host it? If I read the ATA meeting minutes right, when Stockdale got the heartland grand approved, the EC said that would be the last satellite grand as that made 11. I think we would get a site every year for the Central Zone shoot. I want the homegrounds to succeed and be sustainable for many years to come. Steve Wolf

Redscare, this is why a business plan is so important..FINANCING is a major portion of any business plan! ( If it does fail (and it wont) at least the WTA can say "we tried." Even if the WTA fails (which it wont) whatever ill just shoot somewhere else.). Now does that come along with an apology letter for all those WTA shooters who supported the homegrounds, including returned checks???
