    It is highly irregular for a local/regional bank to make a construction loan for a structure which will be built outside of said bank's greater marketing area. It is also highly irregular for a local/regional bank to make a construction loan for the purpose of building a structure on property which the borrowers do not or will not ever own.

    If you wonder why the Trapshooting Hall of Fame in Sparta, Illinois borrowed money from a bank 600 miles away in a place called Norfolk, Nebraska then please read and familiarize yourselves with the names and addresses of the parties I have listed below. Both parties, incidentally, have lived and conducted business in Norfolk, Nebraska for over fifty years.

    I wonder if Mr. Bradford, told the bank that the H.O.F. would not own the building or the land it was sitting on. How many more stupid moves can the ATA tolerate? I wonder how many sham contractors worked on that building. An audit of the expenses incurred on that building should have been done long ago. The past and present E.C. members and B.O.D. member do not instill much trust for the members to rely on. The death of a once loved and trusted organization is in the process of being achieved by the lack of qualified leaders. The members are also a fault, they let this happen thru lack of over sight on the once trusted leadership. Evil will prevail, when men of honor do nothing. Roger C.

    Before one of the VPs of the ATA was in office, he was put in charge of the financial oversight committee.

    Hells Bells, the EC hid so much from him he had no idea what was going on. When he requested information, they forced him out.

    TRANSPARENCY is not something the ATA believes in.

    I know that we are not supposed to put LINKS within our comments, BUT I want the newer people, and those who are not aware of the past happenings to be informed to the best of our abilities.

    So, that being said, see for yourselves in the link below folks.

    WE are transparent on here with FACTS.

    Blah Blah Blah!! Isnt that guy at the top right now? Tell me gang how much more transparent we are because of him.

    Didn't he vote to collect monies from the members to pay for the HOF? Did he make a big announcement to tell all you guys who owns the HOF building?

    Has there been a single roll call vote? flame away

    I'll tell you just how transparent that ATA gang WAS.

    This fellow didn't even know the THOF building was NOT owned by the THOF until informed by one of our posters on here.

    Bradford and company kept that a secret from even the Delegates, of which this fellow was one at that time.

    As for voting to collect monies from shooters, or roll call votes, I don't know the answer to that.

    Hi History Seeker....the information has been on this site for a few years. That guy you like is on the site right? I love all your posts but I think you may be looking at the wrong side of that profile. Please tell me when he asked for a single roll call vote. Or tell me when there was a roll call vote when he was in the room.

    How did he vote on the free gun issue?

    Please do not feel attacked. You are the good guy......

    I don't care who you are, that's one of the funniest posts I've ever read. If that was in the Joke of The Day Forum, you'd have The Joke of The Year, right there.

    paBOB,

    Unfortunately I have not got the answers as to the roll call vote, I wish I did.

    The fellow (Paul Shaw) who is now on the EC was not aware at the time, of the THOF not being owned by the HOF, nor by the ATA, that I do know.

    Seems it was kept a pretty good secret by Mr. Bradford until some real reliable digging into the lease agreement got going on this site.

    As far as I know, non of the EC post on here, seems they don't want to defend their actions out in he open for some strange reason, but I wish they would.

    That's the best I can offer my friend.
