    Brooks, AB Trap Shoot, 50 straight!!!

    Sorry for the length.
    Had a great time with Dad down in Brooks, Alberta this weekend.

    Dads game is really coming along. Most of his events are just under 90. Lats year they were just under 70.

    As for me....
    Saturday. All the stars were in alignment.
    I ran 123 straight (non consecutive)
    I ran 73 straight (Consecutive)
    98/100 in singles (Division winner) 3rd place
    90/100 Handicap (Overall champ) And it cost me a 1/2 yard in distance
    86/100 doubles that sucked but I was beat and sun burnt by then
    Sunday..
    Reality sets in
    80 something in singles
    and a 64 in Handicap (PUKE) (GAG)

    This game makes me laugh, just when you’re on top of the world you come CRASHING down.

    Sat night we had a great BBQ put on by Ron from the trap/Sporting clays club. Open bar, lots of food
    Spent the night listening to dad get up something like 99 times complaining about cramps in his legs. Finally fell back asleep at 7:30am thinking I could get 2 hours worth of sleep. Dad wakes me up at 8am saying he is bored. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
    I could have slapped him
    A great time was had by all
    So now I have my 25 in row and my 50 in a row badge!! Also the Rep from Winchester was there. When he found out I had hit my 50 he gave me a nice looking Winchester hat.
    As for the Calcutta.. Catch this.. I was the first one chosen.(Wild card) UNFRIKEN BELIEVABLE. There were guys like Ron McConnell and Allan Day there. (These guys are a couple of the best in Alberta if not Canada.) I was just floating. (Till Sunday... GAG PUKE)
    I ran into a fellow who is close to his 300,000 registered target. Man that’s a lot of lead.
    Great sport
    Great people

    Would you happen to notice two Alberta shooters with new Kolar T/C ,Trap Combo shotguns at this shoot.Just Interested. Not important.
    Heard a rumor that two Alberta bound shooters had trouble gaining entry into Canada with there new guns.!!

    T-Bar, No Trevor was not there. He should be in the Calgary shoot in 2 weeks.
    I saw him 2 weeks ago.

    Calgary Guy,

    I spent the winter in Az., most of our time at RMTS. Just left Sparta, heading for the Mo. State Shoot. Trevor was on our squad most of the winter. Trying to reach him about the Grand.

    T-Bar, perhaps you ran into my dad. He was at the Grand in Tucson. It was his first BIG shoot. He didnt even have enough registered targets, also his and Moms first winter in AZ. His name was Jim and both him and Mom have been friends with Trev for years now.
    Take care
    I will metion this to Trevor
