Ugg, I think I stepped in it...

Long story short:

So Brianne and I finally joined Aurora Sportsmans Club. It's a 5 year anniversary gift to ourselves, as we are really looking forward to getting some shooting in this year.

I posted a thread in the Hometown section of ARFCOM asking if there were any other members (just looking to get to know some Black Rifle guys that I might shoot with) and ask their opinions on the place. I also mentioned I was a disappointed in some changing of the rules since I went to their open house and orientation last year that is restricting some of how I wanted to use ASC.

Well, today I get a gruff E-mail from an ASC member giving me grief :

"Before you go badmouthing the club again on a public forum, I suggest you read the discussions on our internal forum:
http://www.aurorasc.org/index.php?page=members-forum"

Which of course I don't have access to yet...but that's not the point. I was looking for ARFCOM members opinions on ASC, and unfortunately, most of them were very much like mine... disappointed.

So apparently I'm already pissing people off at a club I'm not even fully a member of yet! I rock!

Yeah, now's not the time to pick fights. This club has a lot of potential, but the general feel is that it's run by FUDDs. I hope to pool together enough Black Rifle/Tactical type shooters and help change the club to a more rounded and modern club. If I started with the FU attitude, I'd make about as many friends as I do here. And not get anything done...or worse yet, get kicked out before I'm even fully a member!

We'll see how petty they are. If it's just one guy grumbling, then fine. But if the club itself starts coming down on me for starting up a conversation with ARFCOM members....

My first members meeting is a week from tomorrow. I'll get my access badge and forum login and all that. We'll see if anyone says anything.

Only cause the wife saves your ass

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

That club has been going downhill since they bought the property in Waterman. They bit off more than they could chew at first budget wise and have been hounding the members for more money through loans that they will pay back. They were really banking on the olympics using the facility because it would have meant the olympic committee would build all the buildings they needed and then when they left the buildings are there and they could bill themselves as the club the olympics use. They are raising the rates for memberships and the dues as well for existing members and they are going to lose members if they continue to do so. It will be a long time before that club builds itself back to what it was before it moved out of bativa only on a grander level with more property. Somehow i just dont see this club surviving.

I've heard nothing about raising the rates, but they do push for assessments for those who have been there more than a year...which I think is bullshit. But I too am worried about what you're saying here.
