    Joe, congrats on a great program in the Xmas doldrums of trapshooting! I'm rescheduling some family get togethers to try and be there! For anybody that doesn't know, this is a nice two trap facility with ample parking, great food and targets and a super nice clubhouse. I don't think you'll find a friendlier trapshooting club around central Kentucky. You'll also be shooting with some Kentucky Champions.

    Terry, that decision was taken out of the club's hands. I miss having Jack at the club as much as anyone. But, in the meantime, we have to keep the club running. I would love to see you at the shoot, but I understand if you decide not to attend.

    Jack being unable to shoot at the Club is unfortunate. Hopefully that will change in the future. Many Club members miss him and his contributions have not been forgotten.

    Hope to see a great turnout on Dec. 18. God Luck to all shooters, wherever you compete.

    Vernon, I don't know when that was, but we have not cancelled a registered shoot or bird race in years. We did have to cancel a couple of our Wednesday night shoots this past spring when the club had 5 feet of Kentucky River water in it, but there wasn't a lot we could do about that.

    Tell you what though, come to the shoot and I'll buy your lunch to make up for it.

    I'd have to second Joe's answer. Vern, the club usually has a pretty good lunch-look's like a ggod deal to me! Wish I'd made the smae complaint-I'd get to eat free!

    Vernon, I do not recall a cancelled shoot at that time, but I was not as involved in the club then. I know that it is far too late, but allow me to apologize for the cancelled shoot. I promise you that this one will not be cancelled. And my offer for lunch stands. I hope that you will give us another chance.

    Joe - The added money sounds great. That should interest many competitors.
    Don't forget Anderson Co. is shooting a big Killer Sunday, 11/5. I hope the snow doesn't scare the Franklin Co. shooters.
