    Name one other in Canada? They won the exclusive rights... amount unknown but we know they paid $115 million for the Olympics so I would guess $10 to $50 million.

As for what the broadcasters are up to, I am at the limit of my knowledge and understanding - if they are going to show diving, they should have shown the trap shooting.

    We can agree that the Pan Am games in Toronto is a waste of money. Let's leave it at that.
    I'm out on this thread. Cheers,

    Why would you be scared of someone carrying a firearm showing up if they were a legal owner, when I was a kid I would walk to school through the front door, to the shop class where everything was locked up for the day and then rode with the shop teacher out to the trap range with a couple other teachers and students. No SWAT, no cowering in fear, no panic... why? Because people weren't ignorant and fear mongered by lies by the Liberals, CBC etc. ....

    Jonathan Login for example did nothing wrong and was strip searched, body cavity searched and spent 10's of thousands on legal fees due to the attitude and fear mongering. The OPP I knew growing up would have been cautious but it would have been inconceivable for them to act like that. Years later, new OPP, someone was stealing gas from the tanks of the one farmer and his neighbour parked the car on the bridge and went and called the police. He had been out and had the shotgun in the trunk, never took it out, but he was charged and the charges against the thief dropped... the difference.... education, attitude and respect for others and especially a firearm owner. For bill C-42 the one reporter talked about how the NFA "wanted to legalize semi-automatic guns", showing ignorance (they are legal... for now), dismissive and insulting in his attitude....

    Some recent questionable articles
    http://globalnews.ca/news/619165/pac...gazine-limits/
    http://www.thestar.com/opinion/edito...in_canada.html
    and of course CBC
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/is-g...nada-1.2723893
    They tie Bruce Montague and try to associate him with firearms ownership in Canada and ends with firearm ownership a gov't allowed privilege.... enough said there.




    As for CBC coverage of the PANAM, you just can't get it can you though. Reading comprehension and thought are definitely a lost art in the schools...I will repeat again.... just incase a light comes on.

    I left it on CBC (usual exclusive coverage purchased with millions of taxpayer's money to fund it) the coverage has been the usual.... half Canada, alot of Chile (they showed atleast 3 of their dives) and everyone else... one mention of a trap Gold and no coverage at all of shooting. Men's gymnastics and syncro diving is all I have seen so far....yawn.

    My issue is the pathetic coverage, millions spent, and when I turned it on yesterday while working there was an hour or so of synchronized diving and seeing Peru and Chile make multiple dives instead of covering another event for even 1 minute. CBC gets about $90,000,000 a month in taxpayer's money, millions more in advertising and is incapable of providing the coverage a private company (that they outbid using taxpayer's money) can.

    Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.

    OK, I stand corrected, I wasn't paying any attention and CBC obviously sold off some of the coverage.

    I don't get any of those channels, I saw it on TLN.

    Looking I see Sportsnet created a partnership with CBC to cover the soccer.

    I drove by the Trap shooting venue today on my way home just out of curiosity as it was on my way. 2 girls sitting in lawn chairs by the road with an OPP cruiser parked there with lights flashing. I guess police protection is necessary with those unstable gun types competing and spectators too I guess. Wanna bet the RCMP is taking down license plate numbers in the designated parking lots
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Nah, they have it on records already somewhere. I don't know anything about the venue etc., if you find out if they allow walk ins and how much some time let me know and maybe we can get a few people together to break some clay. IF, work, family, cost allow.

    I was at the Scottish clay shooting centre in Drumoig Scotland on Sat. We watched people break hundreds of clays in a row without a single miss. They were trying to improve their point totals so they could qualify for the Olympic trials. It was really something to see, they are fantastic, miss ONE and you are out, out of hundreds. After the trials you could rent a gun for 10 pounds (20$) plus shells and shoot for yourself.

    Ohh trust me, I'm already on the watch list. Although I have 2 OPP and an RCMP who hunt in my deer camp, so they don't have to be too sneaky about it.

    This is the venue. I have never shot there but I hear it's easy and reasonably priced to walk in. My guess is the place is booked solid for weeks now with the games. But that would make a great place for a meet & Greet some time.

    I'm a pretty good shot on game but started shooting Sporting Clays this summer and it is very humbling let's just say. At our club I have yet to see anybody go better than 20/25 and most of the regulars seem to do @ 15/25. So yeah these robot shooters who just keep crushing them shot after shot are a different species than I am.....LoL ! This is 5 stand clays though which is quite different than Int Trap but I'm sure those shooters would be as good on Skeet, Trap or Sporting Clays.
