    So....the Powerball is at $500 million and I am pretty sure I am going to win it and I can tell you right now I will never shoot reloads again!...AND...I will not even shoot cheap new ones either. These are the things I am going to do with the cash. I have to send Pheasantmaster a skid of AA's out to Kansas. Puablo likes AA Handicap loads so he gets a skid of those but only if he comes to Cardinal Center to shoot! The Wisconsin boys will get the money they need to finish up their new facility and I will pay off all the loans they have if they have any. The Penna. shooters will have all new Pat Traps down in Elysburg plus some more money for whatever they want. I will give the ATA a generous donation for weed-eaters and round-up to be used at Sparta prior to the Grand American. Cardinal Center will get some cash so that when you win a flashlight you get batteries with it. I wanna shoot at Vernal, Spanish Fork, Tucson, Redlands, and I wanna go to the Kentucky State shoot. I am also going to buy a new rototiller. Now, this being said.....what would you do if you hit the powerball? Go ahead.....don't be shy!!!!.......Uncle Sam, Pa.

    Hopefully an optimist wins it like you Unk, and not a pessimist like the oz man.


    I like your ideas--I'd include a donation sufficient to build the Maryland home grounds into a pristine state-of-the art shooting venue.

    I'll build a couple top notch Hotels just outside the WSRC gates so all the whiners have some place close to stay when attending the Grand.

    Remember the odds of winning are crazy but someone will win it eventually. You certainly can't win if you don't play.

    I would purchase this sad, abandoned piece of ground. Along with the golf-course next door, and all the homes on the golf-course next door.

    New Perazzi with naked ladies on it for me and Big Billy and an RV like Pride Engineer has.

    And let's just say the shoots at Del-Tone and our state should would have significant added money!

    Acturally, I've probably given this more thought than most have. Here's what I would do if I win. After taking care of my church and my family, I would go to Salem, Oregon and buy the entire Mitchell's Sporting Clays facility, lock, stock, and barrel! That used to be the home of the old Salem Trap Club. One of the nicest places I've ever shot trap... I would return it to it's former glory days, with all modern upgrades. Re-do all the trap houses and add a couple more, all with brand new traps. Refurbish the clubhouse and add on to it. New restrooms with state of the art showers, etc. New restaurant, new caretakers house, and new storage building with full workshop. I would add as many pull through, full hook-up RV sites as space allows, and a large dry camping area as well. And, of course, a modern, up to date business office. Once it was all done, I would deed it to to PITA, and their membership, so they could finally have their own, permanent home grounds. Long overdue in my opinion..... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    As someone who doesn't play, I appreciate all who participate in this voluntary taxation program. Hopefully, the more tax revenue you all contribute, the less the government will try to bleed out of me.

    Good luck to you all.
