I'd be good with that.. especially if it was close enough to Yellowstone to make a vacation It would be nice to have an option that isn't in a hot, muggy and soggy location every year. It's a bad time of year to hold all of them in southern states. I'm thinking April would be great to have one in Idaho/Montana and possibly add the challenge of chilly weatherI'd love to see something out WEST!!! Colorado? Utah? Idaho? Montana? It sucks for us westerners to have to travel 1000+ miles for a shoot in some flooded, mosquito infested, stinky wildlife reserve swampland (think Metropolis) :-( Put something in the hills or mountains... works well for the "Total Archery Challenge" crowd...
Wow. Where did you get that information?I am betting that the ASA moves it to Agusta, GA, nobodyreally liked the shoot being there but ASA is close to there so..... which would suck because thats 16hrs from my house!
A great location would be near Ozark, MO or Springfield, MO area, plenty of things for family's to do there....
BUT do not forget that these cities that host these events have to pay the ASA $25,000-50,000 or even more to hold the event in there city!!!

I don’t dispute it is a east coast west coast deal. However to grow the organization a westward expansion is neededProblem with going west is the lack of ASA shooters in those states. It's kind of a chicken and egg deal; which comes first the shooters or the shoot. If you draw a map of the US and divided it into quarters, north/south, east/west I think you'd find the bulk of ASA shooters in the lower right quadrant. That's about all they are able to adequately serve now. They've tried some other states without much success. Some tried copying ASA and weren't able to succeed. Remember Regions?
Expansion into any of those other three areas would require a major change in the ASA structure. I don't think Mike is prepared to take on that kind of reorganization. I'm not sure he wants to grow ASA much beyond it's current scale. Even though ASA has the logistics involved down to a fine science, that doesn't obscure the fact that putting on a pro am is a major undertaking. I'm sure you'll agree it's more than just setting up 400 plus targets. It's registration and data management, contracting with vendors, contracting for the site, managing staff, and a thousand other little details.
