ATA camping; is it a rip off?

If you had a lease for camping at the WSRC for shoots; you will be getting your info from ATA, if you haven't already. This time around, the leases are higher, only good for the Grand; and you have less than a month to pay in full. You will now have to contact another organization to reserve camping for US Open and Fall Classic. You would think that at this time, in the present economy; the ATA would be considerate of the shooters they depend on for income; but instead they see the opportunity to fill their pockets and lighten yours. With gas prices going through the roof; cost of shells going up; and the ATA is charging more every year for shooting fees; this is no longer an amateur sport. I guess this is a good way to get the average shooter out of the sport. ATA you may find yourself with a payroll for employees and no income to pay them. Keep it up, but don't cry about the sport dying when you could have helped out the shooters instead of ripping them off.

I think we "talked" about this a day or so ago.
Guess things have changed. Maybe we (4 shooters) should try to get a spot in Ohio. The ATA should keep it's members informed, thanks, anyway.
Guess this year we will not be allowed to attend the Grand, spots reserved. It will be the ATA that will loose on this.
