What an insightful post - I think you really nailed it.

FWIW, I think we are seeing Ontario shift a bit away from clays and more towards the practical rifle and pistol.

We are in a transition from a trap only mindset to being able to hold other events as well. We still shoot trap on tuesday nights and the ocasional ata shoot, but without all shooting discipline's we probably would not survive. Seems like most guy's today want a safe place to shoot rifle and pistol. Not much support for clays anymore, I believe that generation is getting older and dont recruit new talent so that tradition is thinning out fast.Most of the good trap guys left our club over stupid little things, that i wont get into. All I can say is if you want something done to improve the club you must get involed to change it, Not wine like babys and then never show up again. I still like to bust some clays but Nothing compares to practical shooting. What a rush, If you never done it, you are denying yourself great pleasure.
Yep - hope you didn't think I was disagreeing with the direction or anything. I think it makes sense for you guys, and you are filling a niche nicely. And, being an avid trapshooter myself, I know all the folks you're talking about that have left to head down the street. I know Lee McM from work and we talk about this every once in a while. Sounds like you folks are doing a good job re-inventing your club. Sooner or later I'll be over there to try it out....

One way to look at it is that there is no ideal club for everything. I am a member at 3 clubs, they all have different "personalities". I use them for different purposes and I try not to get caught up in the cliques and politics - it's all about the shooting.
