BTW –– I think moving OGCA from the I-X Center cost our club a lot of members. The club never tried to fight
Cleveland on the gun reg's. We were at the I-X Center for like 12 years when it was Brookpark. I'm sure we would have
had a strong case to be 'grandfathered' in. But instead of fighting, the leadership pulled a 'Modell'.
As I recall, the City of Columbus offered to "grandfather" the OGCA in at Vets Memorial after the passage of the "assault weapons" ban. The powers that be of the OGCA told Columbus to pound sand - repeal it or we're gone. The same thing happened at the IX Center - the land of Cleve annexed
the center and it became assault weapons banned territory. The OGCA has a pretty firm stand on gun rights issues - no negotiating, zero tolerance. (good!!) Many members were lost due to the move to the Roberts Center. Many new members were gained, though. A move back to the IX center would have the same result. Many menbers would quit but new ones would be added. I made many of the IX shows, even though the drive time more than doubled. I never, ever considered quitting the OGCA.
