    $370.00 for one event and I didn't even play any options. It was a handicap event that had $150.00 added money for 1st place and there was a 50 straight jackpot worth $220.00.

    $277 and a flat of Nitro 27's. The Nitro's loosened a filling, so I spent most of the $277 at the dentist's office. (Dang, kinda sounds like a GN7 story)

    Himark,

    So far, three fifths of five eights of bugger all, but I still live in hope, I play the money every chance I get but then "fools and their money soon part" as they say.

    Have the odd Lewis here and there, picked up a few hundred at the Iowa State back in the early 2000's with a 200 in B Class (my one and only 200) but then again life is all about the ride not the sudden stop at the end.

    Regards,

    Release Trigger........

    There was that lucky 99 in the 2006 Presidents handicap that paid about $5400

    Made me think the brass ring was within reach.

    A sucker bet lol

    All the money that I have saved by not playing the options, I have shot up in ammo and target fees. So it looks like a waste of money.

    $920 last week. $400 for the shoot 2 weeks prior. Both single event paydays.

    Streak is gonna die I feel. If two times can be called a streak.

    $875 cash (CH was $1k, RU was $750, we split before the shootoff) and a brand new Remington 1100 Premier Sporting which I ended up selling (didn't want to, but couldn't justify keeping a RH autoloader as a lefty, and the $ it brought went a long way toward financing more shoots). That was for HOA Champ @ the 2010 Remington Great Eastern skeet shoot.

    Also won a couple flats of shells too if I remember correctly. So just north of $2k.

    Had a few other $1k+ weekends, but the one I mentioned was by far the best (and my biggest win to date).
