    I have just received word that our good friend Bob "Red" Shay from Canandaigua, NY has passed away. Bob was the man who 49 years ago was the President of the Canandaigua Sportsmen's Club and asked if I would like to set targets for skeet and trap. Of course, a chance to spend some time around guns was a gift of a lifetime. Having a father that was scared to death of guns, I never thought I would have the opportunity to get involved in the shooting sports. Fortunatly for me, Bob was like a second father to me and got a gun in my hands way back then, and the rest is history...We continued being friends who met at shoots throughout these past 49 years, and I owe a lot to him.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Carol and their sons.

    Bless you Bob, and thanks for the friendship.

    Dave and Judy Monahan....Elloree, South Carolina

    Hi Dave & Judy.

    That is very sad news. I always enjoyed talking to him about Retriever Trials and our dogs when I was at the NY. State shoot. He was a great guy and I will miss him.
