    IMPORTANT NEWS for "GREAT EASTERN SKEET SHOOTERS"

    Sadly, Ernest Marlette, of Marlette Fine Arms & Gunsmithing, will not be attending the Great Eastern Skeet Shoot. Just this morning, his best friend since childhood, died of a heart attack in Columbia, S.C. Ernest is driving there now to be with his friend's surviving family of a wife and 3 children. There are a number of friends and customers that were planning to meet Ernest at the Great Eastern. To those people and others attending the shoot, Ernest wants to express his deepest apologies in hopes that you will understand.

    I know that not everyone reads these threads but if you know someone that is attending this event will you please pass the message along to other shooters.
