    Grand American daily high temperatures shaping up like this:

    Aug 6 - 86, Aug 7 - 82, Aug 8 - 81, Aug 9 - 82, Aug 10 - 81, Aug 11 - 83,
    Aug 12 - 84, Aug 13 - 84

    Now what will we nag about because the Grand is in Sparta, and not Vandalia?

    I don't know where your looking at bud but this is what I found.

    Looks like tomorrow is bad (99) but then it looks like mid 80's

    I hope the attendance is above average. Weather should help. 76-78 degrees this weekend.

    Hey bud (J.D. Squire). Got my info from Weather Channel.com 10 day forecast.

    Yes, there is a heat wave moving in that direction. Today it was 107 in Dallas.

    I've heard people say they are not shooting in Sparta because it is too hot. Guess they have to find another reason to not go. Huh!

    Dove Commander: I'm hoping along with you that the attendance will be above average. There are many who try very hard to destroy our sport. I wonder what others will think if something positive would come to Sparta in lieu of attendance above average?

    I have asked about 100 folks, all complaining about the economy, the weather, etc,etc. if they were going to cancel their summer vacation this kyear. Only two have cancelled and that was because they owned their own businesses and felt that they were too busy to leave it. The rest all are continuing with their vacation plans.

    I guess it's 'everybody else' that's cancelling.

    Using the history at Vandalia, I have my 45 yr. patch. I have had to buy a sweater and I have failed to get a target because the puller had passed out from the heat. I had my best yr. at Sparta last yr. I literally froze at Sparta in May. I will not go because, oh my 5th wheel is already their so I best go.
