    Cool that we got coverage, but the story leads off with "You can call it bad timing..."

    Frank also says "we have some cooling fans." Fans? Frank needs a media relations person.

    Those look like the exact motor coaches I saw at Silver Dollar.

    That's cool, I reconized Franks voice before the picture came in.

    Very warm start.

    The ATA has come a long way. Forty years ago a Black man could not shoot ATA.

    Frank may have been the first Black ATA member. Frank was the first man in Michigan to post a Grand Slam.

    Frank is a great friend and nobody's fool. I was on his squad when I shoot my first 100 straight at our State shoot and I will never forget his support. As another friend says, "He is good people". How wonderful to see him on the tube.

    Great press for the Grand and Rively did OK too - for a White guy. LOL

    Did you notice they showed a vehicle with AZ plates on it? You don't think ole WPT slipped in and shot a round do you? He does seem obsessed with Sparta on his postings here, I knew he couldn't stay away.

    Some one should invite the chicago mayor daley. Maybe he would see for himself what law abiding gun owership is all about. Or maybe he would just wig out when he sees a 12 year old girl walk out there and compete. Hats off to you guys, shoot well, good luck.

    Great coverage. It's only wishful thinking that a clip like that would ever air in my California.

    Yea Frank Woods. I've never met him, but he lives about a 1 from my aunt and uncle in Oak Park. He's a good friend of my friend John "Ernie" Watkins who stays with him when he goes to Michigan. I just called Ernie and left a message telling him that Frank was on the TV news.
