    I'm going along with 5 friends. 2 of us have been there when it was at Vandalia but it will be the first time for all of us at Sparta. A couple of these guys are in their 70's, have been long time shooters and have never attended before. I'm looking forward to a great time with some good friends.

    Yep, Already got my camping spot. Been there the last 2 years and plan on making the 778 mile trek yearly. I know they had record heat last year but it wasn't that bad the year before.

    Yes,

    Have not shot the Grand since 2004, attended the previous nine before that.

    Business and medical problems have kept me away for the last 3 years but God willing that will change this summer.

    Looking forward to catching up with friends.

    Probably. I'll shoot 3 days of it. Won't do any singles (have to "run e'm all" to win ANYTHING in those, and probably no doubles. Might get lucky in caps. Hopefully it won't be as hot as last year!

    Not this year.

    First time since 1976 that I have not attended, the heat just got to me last year, If I were to go I would back off on number of targets and just shoot probably one event per day.

    Yes, I am going. Have been at every Grand since 1992, if memory serves me. As far as shooting , I like Sparta better than Vandalia. I like background better than Cardinal, both are fine places to shoot. I remember one year at Vandalia that it got up to about 100 every day after they had been having some local flooding. I believe it was as miserable as Sparta was last year. Besides, iot is the "Grand".
