This is a really cool program!  I'm skeptical I could get matching funds for the program, but it would sure be cool to add an archery range to our community.

Having a near by outdoor range is awesome.  The one that is near my house in St. Paul gets a lot of use by a very diverse group of people.  I see dads with their kids, teenage girls, groups of high school boys, guys up to 70 years old, and everything in between.  

I've been especially impressed with the groups of high school boys that I've run into. I've shown up when it was just me and one of those groups at the range.  When I showed up they were playing music pretty loudly and goofing off and normally you'd think aw man I've got to deal with these guys while I'm trying to get in some range time.  But instead the minute I walked in they stopped messing around and got back to shooting and apologized for the music and were going to turn it off.  I stopped them and told them to crank the music back up and have a good time as long as it doesn't bother anyone else that shows up.  Not often any more that you have a group of teenage boys show proper consideration for those around them.   

Having these ranges and giving these younger guys and girls a free place to shoot within the city is important.  Without access to the ranges these kids are off doing something else and the sport suffers.

The outdoor range I go to could use some new targets as some are getting pretty well worn.  Hopefully the city that maintains it looks into these funds and takes advantage.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
