    Lot of good flyer shooters on the list. Not all are household names.

    I'll take George or Andy to win. Pat Ireland or Hap can have any other five named in advance. A cup of coffee on the outcome.

    I'll put my money on Digweed or McGuire as it now stands...

    Dan Carlysle hasn't signed up yet...

    This is easily the event of the year and the one all the Pros want to win...

    It is serious bragging rights...

    Joe,

    The link doesn't work for me. Are you sure that's the correct address?

    Just checked and it worked perfectly. Maybe a temporary server problem.

    For those who have checked the list. Is there any serious trap shooters signed up, as I would not know the names of the top guns.

    Well, I see that Kruger and Rivera are both attending. I may have to check my schedule of big Sporting Clays shoots going on the same time. I might stand a chance! LOL.

    My money is on Big George; but Wendell Cherry could be a sleeper.

    Smart money is on George; Cooley could also be a sleeper.

    I think all the guys shoot an occasional line of Trap but no serious ATA shooters yet, they wouldn'd be competitive anyway...it takes an all around competitor like in Sporting Clays, etc.

    Try a smaller test line Chuckles, I don't think they'll bite on that one.

    Not sure why some of the top skeet and trap guys don't enter. Looking at the payouts, if they won just the American skeet or ATA trap event, they'd get their $5000 back. You'd think they might also have a chance to at least place in some of the other events.

    I think your Sporting Clays, FITASC, 5 Stand, Live Bird shooters all participate and interact on a different and more competitive level than your Top of the Line Trap or Skeet shooters......

    Guys like Wayne Mayes, Todd Bender, Kay Ohey,, etc, etc are highest level in their respective games but it generally stops there.

    I'm sure they don't feel competitive in the All Around nor would they be......

    Cherry and Matterese will be good competition for George. Gibbons, Kruse, and Bolton are no pushovers either. Great list so far. This would be comparable to a Kaye O/Marshall/Harrison/Campbell/Name your favorite, shootout in trap.

    Don't you weak butted sporters have anything better to do than come on here and try and provoke a argument. There is nothing to argue - if you're so damn good come to the shoots and kick our easy, sorry butts - take our money then brag about it. The main problem is you can't do it. So live in the shadow of your idol George (who is a great shooter), thump your chests but you still get no respect.
