    Was a great shoot and a lot of fun, except for anyone squaded after 20 on caps, wind and squalls put a damper on scores, but ain't that the way it goes. Roll the dice, take your chances. Bunch of good people there and good comraderie.
    A BIG THANK YOU to the Helena Trap club for putting on a good shoot and all the volunteers.

    sure was thinking that we would go 499 in the first half of the singles, but 498 is not to bad
    will see you and Sue at Anaconda for the Zone
    i sure had a good time, just wish i would have shot the caps better

    Scott

    was good to see you and your better half, see ya at Anaconda

    All in all, the shoot was pretty good. Nothing could forsee the Electrical problem on the first day, and we still got it done. I am a bit disappointed in the late shootoffs on Friday, but all in all, they still went well. Sorry that there had to be a winner in the Stu/Shawn shootoff but it's always that way. Pretty impressive watching those two go at it.

    I missed George this year.....where were you bud?

    Hey Rick, I was and have been very busy at work here,it definately has been effecting the time that I have to shoot.Like alot of us in the economy being what it is we are working longer hrs. and doin more with less per say.I do plan on trying to get in gear and attend the as many of the remaining shoots this year as I can.The zones are a distant hope right now but hopefully some of the following shoots will line up when I can make it.Shoot well George

    Rick: What would your thoughts be on having the MSTA friday meeting at 8:00 am instead of after the doubles championship? It probably takes 2 hours out of by the time you get completely shut down, have the meeting, and then get fired back up. In the old days the meeting time was for the field help to change from doubles to singles, but with the new Pat traps, that isn't a time issue. When I did it, I was completely done before the meeting even started and attended the entire meeting. 2 hours on friday prime time is precious. thx Wayne

    Wayne.......sounds like a great idea. On the other hand...if you are running 6 banks like Helena, you have to wait til the line is clear to set anything for doubles or singles. Total waste of time in my opinion.

    I think the meeting at 8 would work if the club ran a 4 trap bank.

    Rick

    George....see you in a couple of weeks in Kalispell.

    Sounds good we will looking forward to hopefully some decent weather over here for our upcoming shoot.It has still been raining at times fairly heavey.Sunday it rained here super hard on and off but Im hoping for decent weather.Hopefully I will get a chance to get in some trigger time befor the next registered so I dont shoot like a complete fool.Look forward to seeing you guys there.We are doing a new thing going with our gun give-away where each shooter that signs up for the shoot will have a opportunity to win via drawing.That way there will be an opportunity for a chance to come away with something fun.Shoot Well George

    Rick: I feel the advantages of running 50 a trap are, you send twice as many squads out in the beginning, otherwise it is 45 minutes before the 4th trap is being utilized also if there is a trap breakdown, you only affect 2 traps vs potentially 4 ,another advantage is the on-deck squads have twice as much time to find out they are on deck and get ready to shoot. I aggree that some squads waste too much time between shooting their 2nd set, but they are the same ones that also waste time between traps if they are shooting on 4 traps. Just my thoughts: Wayne

    If I might make a constructive suggestion for the future Rick,

    ..........rather than publish in the program that the early squads on Sat & Sun "will start at APPROXIMATELY 8:30am" and then pressure them to start early without all the squad members there I think it'd be better if the program simply said that the "AIM shooters will start at 7:00am & the early regular squads will start immediately after the AIM squads are finished on the trap".

    Wayne, I don't have access to the results. Petroni ran the shoot. Next year in Billings I have every intention of posting results as they happen.

    John, I most heartly agree with what you said. There always seems to be mistakes no matter how much work is put into something. I am sure Helena will try harder next time. All the clubs do, but something always comes up.

    Yes Rick, I'm sure that the estimated approximate start time was well intentioned. A good idea that just didn't work out, oh well...$hit happens. It was a fine shoot in Helena & I hope to make it out to Great Falls on the first weekend in August.

    John
