Please note that Phoenix Airgun Club, and Airgunners of Arizona Field Target Club are two distinctly separate organizations and are not directly affiliated with each other.
I appreciate the emails and the phone calls regarding the fact that the AAFTA nationals are in Arizona, but if you guys have questions, comments or complaints, please contact their club directly. Although some of our club members shoot at their club on occasion, and that we did suspend our club shoots to help them get started a few years ago, I am personally not a member of Rio Salado Sportsman's Assn. or their airgun division, Phoenix Airgun club.
I cannot answer for what they do, how they do it, or why they do it. That is best left for that club to respond to. I have voiced my concern (again, based upon the number of calls and emails received) to the club president about the limited amount of space available and was assured by him that they will have room for all the shooters.
That being said, it has been suggested that I let everyone know this. Airgunners of Arizona hopes that Phoenix Airgun club can successfully host a national match with positive results.
Secretary, Airgunners of Arizona
