    Thanks to all the shooters Attending the Fennville Grand!! We got a little backed up on Sunday but everyone was cool about it. Tim Schanz showed off his ability to break off tiny pieces of targets-prompting his partners to Double Gun him, He got me and Mike B in the same weekend,I wish he could crush the birds so there's no doubt about the hit!!Perry

    I'm glad you got a pic of Tim pointing at Mike. Tim's left hand is doing a great job of blocking my name on the double gun list!

    Here are a few more photos of the shoot. We had great weather and everything went relatively smooth considering how much was planned for the weekend. Thanks to everyone for coming out!

From what he said I was missing out,but dont know what I was missing out on.Could you tell me a little bit about this shoot? I might have to put it on my calender for next year. Thanks...Moe

    Hugo, The Fennville Grand is a weekend of trapshooting games centered around several two-man protection calcuttas and great food, held at the Fennville Rod and Gun Club. This shoot is an annual event that is increasing in popularity among the shooters in sw Michigan and northern Indiana. It is a fun time and the BS flows liberally. You see many more smiles than frowns at this shoot. There are no registered events, shot size is optional, as is DE and payload size. If you like this type of shooting, this is the shoot to attend. Break 'em all! Tom Ruble

    The dream team lived up to the hype on Saturday then came Sunday I am not sure what happened but they did not look like a dream team it was more like a nightmare.But we have to give them a hand for winning the team event good shooting boys.

    Boy could I run with this one...

    Let's just say we might have a new team name next year. Hang Over Heroes? Hang Over Zeros? Bud Light Blues? Team AA? (And I'm not talking about our classification) I'm sure there will be some more team names begin to pop up.

    But next year, as the captain, I will be coming up with guidelines you will need to obtain in order to shoot on the dream team.

    1. In bed by 2:00 am the day of the shoot.
    2. NO MOTEL PARKING LOT PARTY'S.
    3. All members must wear MP3 players.

    We'll that's a start.

    Thank you to all of the shooters, their patience and great attitudes - our club surely appreciates it. Everybody was very understanding when we got backed up with the 5 man teams on Sun and had to push the calcutta back quite a bit.

    Also a huge thanks to all of the club members that volunteered to pull this off and keep things running smoothly. It would be impossible without the great people we have working at the club. Everybody pitched in and just kept smiling.

    I'm feeling a little left out - there were some great shooters on the double gun board but I didn't make it - oh darn! Thought we were going to run out of room on the board ... Instead of a bench we needed bleachers!

    Sorry guys - couldn't resist!

    How much did Matt pay for not having the board shown on the net with his name on it.

    Hook,

    Tim is getting expensive ever since he lowered his point of impact!

    Hey Michroe,

    We tie it in with the second Sunday of August so whatever that date is next year it will be the Sat & Sun, block it in. We always have a calcutta the 2nd week of the month but in Aug tie it in with the Grand - started a while back as a Bd. members birthday celebration and grew from there.

    Hope you can join us next year. It ain't perfect but it's a lot of fun!

    Cindy

    Truly a great weekend! This is without a doubt the biggest and baddest shoot around. I never thought I would see a shoot bigger than the New Years Day shoot but this one is truly giving it a run for it's money!

    A BIG thank you to all the club members at Fennville who volunteered their time so that the shooters of SW Michigan and Northern Indiana could enjoy a great shoot. I would list all the names but I would hate to forget anyone. Thank you to everyone.

    Thanks to the pullers who do a WONDERFUL job in running the shoots out the door as well. Their the best around. I haven't seen pulling that good since those two kids at Coloma a few years back.

    Also, thanks to all the sponsers who purchased a sign to support the team shoots. This made it a big hit with all the shooters. If you get a chance be sure and thank these guys. (Except Essenburg. I heard he's going to charge some poor old lady an extra $100 to fix her toilet just so he can pay his sign bill.)

    Hope to see everyone at the next WMCC shoot. The circuit is without a doubt growing which is great to see.

    Regards,

    Matt Ski
