    If "Red Suspenders" attends, he will be shooting from 23yds. This should keep the mystery auctioneer busy for a while! I'd bet, its been a few years since he shot a handicap event from that yardage.

    OH can I let the cat out of the bag or are we really going to make the cat mean, before we find out who the mystery auctioneer is?

    "Mr. Red Suspenders" asked me what the Club Handicap was and I said yes you will be on the 23 yard line and he just winked at me with a big smile LOL!!!!

    Lots of room in the new clubhouse to keep warm, even if it's chilly outside!

    Well some of the ol' timers where I grew-up used to say "fart fire and save the matches"....
    never have figured out what they were tryin' to get at with that one, but its a heck of a lotta' fun to say anyway.

    Sure hope we have some sunshine for Sunday, and pleanty of wind too, that will help the rest of us from the likes of Ol' Red Suspenders, and Rosey, and the must be Nocturnal Dinky Dow!!!!

    I do have my eye and pocket book on a couple "other" shooters that just might try and slip through,,,,, Ya' I'm talkin' bout' you BigDon!!!! goin' once, goin' twice,,,,,OHHH do we have another bidder on the Donmister??????

    Travel safe everyone,

    One time I heard Dinky say "Everyone wants to be a jet pilot". Not sure what he meant either, Matt, but it must have something to do with what he told my son Brad when he was just starting to shoot. He asked him if he looked at the bird when he shot, and Brad said "Yes". Dinky said "No- that's not right. You have to look at the air IN FRONT if the bird!"

    I will try to sneak in but I have got a lot to do in order to head south. Old red suspenders would be a great buy at 23 yds along with Matt, Roger, Rosey or Dinky plus any other outside talent that strolls in. Don't forget Jerry, Phil and smokeless Joe. I have heard some Indiana boys might try and surprise you also.

    Sounds like a good time to be had by all.
