I think it would add to the Grand Experience for a whole new group of people that never attended the Vandalia Grand.

I always made it a point to take a trip through the museum, and had the good fortune to have Dick Baldwin sign my copy of his book, The Road to Yesterday.

The museum needs to be at the Grand, wherever it is held.

That is what the slogan will be if they move the MUSEUM, The Road To Yesterday
and The Road Less Traveled.

"That is what the slogan will be if they move the MUSEUM, The Road To Yesterday and The Road Less Traveled."

Does this mean that you think having the HOF where a greater number of Grand participants than Vandalia can view it is preferred.

Does it mean you would rather leave it in Vandalia where next no one views it than move it where at least some will see it??????

Does anyone go there, now that there's no longer a trapshoot around it? Out of seven trips to Vandalia I believe one trip through was enough.

If the HoF did move what would happen if the ATA didnt hold any shoots at Sparta after the lease runs out? Not sure how many more years they have on this contract.

Wonder how many people visit the hof ever year in Ohio? I'm sure it would be a lot more than if it was in Sparata. If it stays in Ohio in a new facility it will raise more money to support it.

I'm sorry to point this out however.....

The Football HOF is not in the city where they play the Superbowl.

The Baseball HOF is not in the city where they play the World Series.

The Basketball HOF is not where they play the NBA Championship game.

Who knows where they have the Soccer HOF and who cares? I know for a fact that it isn't where they play for the World Cup.

The list goes on and on......... but you get the picture.

So please, tell me why exactly, does the Trapshooters HOF have to be in Sparta.

The Trapshooters HOF should be were it will draw the most people to see it thus producing more income for the organization. It will also help to promote the sport.

You compare Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer and Trap Shooting all in the same breath.

Does that mean that you think that if you said Trapshooting on ESPN that everyone would know just what you are talking about?

Does this mean that you think Trapshooting get the same National sports coverage as these other sport you name?

If you said in a sports Trivia game, what sport has it hall of fame in Vandalia Ohio all the participants would answer correctly?

If you answered Yes to any of these questions I think that you don't live in the real world!!!!!!!!!!!!
