I'm posting this with out the families knowledge. It has come to my attention that Josephine County Sportsman Association Gun Range ( JCSA ) has suspended a fellow member for 60 days. The member is 17 years old and a competitive Sporting Clay and Trap and Skeet shooter. During these 60 days is one college reported shoot and two nationally reported shoots.

HE GOT SUSPENDED FOR URINATING ON A TREE!!!!!! That's right, he was out in the woods, and peed on a tree. Someone saw him and complained and the board decided to punish him with a 60 day ban. He practices 3-4 times a week, and has the three tournaments in which he will not be able to participate. He wrote a letter pleading for the opportunity to be present for the shoots as the college reported one puts him in line to receive scholarships, even potentially a full ride....

While urinating on the tree may not have been the best choice. Very few can say they've never peed on a tree. Punishing him to this extreme is INSANE!!! This kid has the opportunity of a better future through shooting and an education, and to top that he has qualified to the finals for Olympics 2020.

I personally feel it is Cruel and unusual punishment for them to ban anyone for 60 days for urinating on a tree, let alone an individual who uses the range 3 times a week and that can and will have cascading effects on his future.

PLEASE EMAIL or call the contacts below with your displeasure of the excessive 60 day suspension for urinating on a tree!!!!!

It is utter nonsense. Where did it happen & who reported it. Lots of questions still need answered IMHO. I have watered MANY a tree in my day and will continue, it's so peaceful...
Emailed the president with a quote from OP. I hope this helps the youngster out.

From what I understand the person who witnessed the incident did not intend or realize how far and extreme they were going to punish the kid. The incident happened on 4/12/2017 at the Josephine County Sportsmans Park in grants pass. Location wise at the park was on the Northwest Corner near the entrance to the sporting clays trails / archerer's lodge.

I dont want to name names as the kid is a minor, and as I stated the guy who reported it I don't think intended for it to go to these extremes.

If he gets the 60 days and no comp, so should Club Prez as an admitted perp of the same thing.

B*tchy Little Girls like this are why I don't join gun clubs... I'll bet what really happened is the kid was kicking their asses in competition and they couldn't take it, much like the whole "PAC NINE, if you can't beat 'em DQ 'em" BS that got thrown down on Don James and UW.

EDIT: You guys wanna know why gun club culture is dying? Petty little pin-dicks like this, and those who support or fail to recall them assuming the option's in club bylaws, are EXACTLY why--people like me deal with enough Butthurt Little B*tch-ness from the Bloomers and don't want the Drama Queen Bullsh*t from those who are supposedly our own. If someone like this is an officer in your club, they need to be either contained or removed; this kind of "Rules for Thee But Not Me" rank hypocrisy and abuse-of-power cannot be allowed to stand, anywhere.

Well what I was wondering if in fact it was one of the kids competition, that's what it amounted to.
Also, who tattle tails for someone peeing out of doors (unless it's in the city limits) good Gawd some people are just snowflakes!!! Lol:p
Regardless I still was moved to contact the President and inform him that if I was ever down in that area & wanted to shoot that I'd find another place & would not spend a cent there.:mad:

He should be given a few free clays or something, as compensation for fertilizing the club foliage, not punished for doing as nature intended.
