    Aline Babin from Maryland (Lean Green, as we fondly know her), shot her 1st 25 straight at the 2010 Grand, and then ended up with a whopping 96!!!! Now THAT's some good shootin'!!!!

    Congratulations, Darlin'. It was so good to see you today, and so exciting to hear about your success. Your 100 straight is just around the corner with that Citori.

    Aline is not a participant on this site, so I'll pass along everyone's congratulations.


    She has had a great year and has registered over 7,000 targets with her XT combo she calls BoomBoom--for her new-found love for doubles.


    This is her first full year shooting following a prior brief dabble in the sport that was met with frustration and ultimately resignation.


    It was Marian Knode who demonstrated last year at the Grand that one could have fun shooting no matter the score. It was Marian that inspired Aline to try again.


    Aline increased her average by 1.3 percentage points in singles during the grand. I also played the Lewis when I signed her up without her knowledge. She was jazzed when she swiped her card and saw that she'd won money.


    She had a blast. Thank you everyone, especially Lady Marian!

    Thanks everyone. Aline was surprised to see the nice comments last night.


    Butch, We won't make the Cardinal, but are already planning a trip there next year following Grand week. We've never done tri-state before but are talking about that too.



    Betty & Lacy, We had a great time at your Gold Coin shoot last year and plan to make it and the Corn Shoot just as we did last year. Youall are great hosts!



    Dave, Your generous celebratory gift is much appreciated. JD always tastes best when provided by a good friend!
