    Event 16 President Bruce Reed Handicap I came in with a 99 and ended up fourth after the shoot-off. I was so pumped, my best handicap score ever(right or left handed). Even though he's not from central Illinois,
    Frank Bentley III took champion after the shoot-off, congrats to Frank. Thanks, Jonathan Taylor

    That is pretty impressive. It sure seems that Ken Franklin is a sand bagger! Man those are some awesome scores but "D" class???

    And you know what? Mike Dennis, Piro, and both Franklins were shooting together or just hanging together so I think good rubs off. Can I get on your squad guys?

    If Ed Barnabee is from Farmington, Il. and he is the one who did well as a class D shooter at the Ill. State shoot, ask him how well he has done in Europe in the live bird shoots. If this is not him I stand corrected. You can tell him by his big nose-literally.

    K80 Dude... you couldn't be more wrong. Ken Franklin is just the opposite of a sandbagger. His improvement this year came about through hard work, lots of practice and as Partygirl stated, shooting with some excellent shooters. Ken's efforts have paid off and it's all coming together this season.

    K80 Dude... your psychic powers have failed. But then again you may know more about sandbagging than most of us.

    It's the same Ed Barnabee, he of the "Barnabee Flyer Trap" fame.Well known in flyer circles, he won the World Vet Championship in '07 at Malaga, but was out early this year at Marrakech, Morocco
