Several major and monthly matches have been told that they can no longer shoot in the natural terrain of the Whittington Center, a new policy of the new Director.  The decision is not based on dollars or risk or even on inconvenience to other shooters.  These matches have been run by volunteers for 14 to 43 years and represent the best in their sport in the nation.  The loss of these matches will cost the local economy well over $500,000 a year.  Not a lot in the grand scheme, but for a town like Raton, a significant impact.  With the 2nd Amendment under attack, the loss of this unique venue by a Director who does not understand sport shooting, nor history is a travesty.
