    Since a Spanish edition of the Program for the Grand American doesn't appear to be available, will there be bilingual assistance for registration at the Grand? Several shooters locally have asked. Regards, Ed

    OldGoat,
    Are you from Quebec? There may be but a handful of people in Sparta Illinois who will be able to speak French.

    Our Spanish shooters may have better luck. Many youngsters are learning Spanish in High School so they can function in the New America. If San Antonio had got the Grand, this would have been a non issue.

    Joe,
    The truth be know, our grandparents and parents came to this country and didn't have any bilinguil assistance except maybe from their kids. In fact, if they need the help, our parents or grandparents found themselves the help they needed. Our parents and grandparents made the effort to become Americans and learn the language. Today, immigrants wanted everyone to acquiesce to them and their needs. There are towns in New York State, I'm sure you have heard about, that have voted to have the language spoken there be English only. This is still the United States of America not the United States of Latino America. You could step up to the line and become the offical Spanish interpeter at the Grand.
