That hole gave me a funny flashback. In 1988 I spent a week in San Antonio visiting a childhood friend. Some college was doing a huge archeological dig right in front of the Alamo. There were multiple big holes in the ground just like the one in the above picture and there were barrier ribbons all around the holes behind which people were digging with tiny shovels and rock hammers and carefully sifting dirt. As we waited in line to tour the Alamo we asked a professor who appeared to be in authority whether they had unearthed anything interesting yet. I forget exactly what he said, but it was short and kind of rude with one of those "I'm way too smart to talk to you" attitudes. Anyway, toward the end of a night of drinking, me and one of my friend's Army buddies decided to hop down in the holes and give that serious scientist some interesting discoveries. Mine was a carefully planted Miller Lite bottle, and the other guy's was a little too disgusting to mention, LOL. I only wish I could have been there to witness the "Eureka!"

LOL! PROFESSOR GROUCH-PUSS! How have you been? Did you send our little "presents" to the Smithsonian?

PS: I swear -- I'm only responsible for the beer bottle. That other thing was courtesy of the US Army.

Len,

How many fields are going to be installed? Will they be trap only or skeet/trap ranges? Are they setup "north facing"? Will they open five days a week once this/these traps are completed?

Hi Phil

For now, we're going to just have one trap/skeet overlay field. The shooting stations for a skeet overlay are being poured at the same time as the house and trap sidewalks. The skeet houses are being built as an Eagle Scout project and will follow shortly. We have plans for a total of 4 traps in this location but that depends on the revenue flow from the first one. It's primary purpose is to support our SCTP team with public shooting as a side benefit. It is not north facing, so shooting in Buckeye will be similar to shooting in Young.

How often will it be open to the public? That depends on how many volunteers we can get to run it. We are an all volunteer, non-profit club. (hint hint)
