    Too cold in December, brrrr. My blood's too thin. Maybe May or June when school first gets out.

    Why not start the Grand the day after Labor Day? It might be a little bit cooler anyway. The school kids can shoot over Labor day weekend.

    Think about it...they will likely continue to have it in early August (tradition) plus the SCTP young shooters need the opportunity to be there in the first week before school starts. Best Regards, Ed

    School started around here (Indiana) last week. Let the SCTP shooters, shoot over Labor Day Weekend and then the Grand prelim week can start.

    Wonder who would work it? Most of the kids are students and many supers are teachers.

    Any way you slice it, it's time to think outside the box if the Grand is going to be in Sparta for the forseeable future. Who says it can't be slotted in before the state shoots, zones, etc. For that matter, who says the trap year has to start 9/1? But with the heat in Spara and school starting so early in so many places, we need to go to plan B and be flexible to some new ideas for keeping our most important event relevant in the lives of the highest number of shooters possible.

    It used to be in the rule book but is omitted from the latest one. Anyone have an old rule book lying around?
