                                   WEB PAGE UPDATE AND REGISTERED SHOOTS

You may have noticed that sections of our web site have not been functioning and the page has been operating very slowly.  The Board has decided to design a new site to make it more user friendly and bring the page up to date with the current technology. The shoot calendar had to be removed to institute a new format, so all shoot applications must be mailed (or scanned and e-mailed) using the ATA green application form.  You can check out the upcoming registered shoot dates by looking under "ZONE NEWS".  We apologize for this inconvenience and ask that      you be patient while we make this needed transition.

At the Cardinal Shooting Center, there is a brick walkway under the O.S.T.A.
awning, by the score sheet annex area. This area is on the east end of the 1st
Vendor’s building. The O.S.T.A. is selling engraved bricks for the walkway.
You or your Gun Club, can become a permanent part of this wonderful facility and
trapshooting history. You can buy a brick to commemorate a special memory like the
day you broke your first 100 straight, or in memory of a special loved one. The
possibilities are endless. Please consider buying a brick and becoming a part of
the history of Cardinal Shooting Center. These bricks will last forever so
generations of shooters will be able to view your message.  
Please go to "Foundation" at the top of this page for details and forms
