    I'd like to see a pie eating contest between Phil Kiner, Harlan Campbell, Rick Marshall, David Schaffer and Leo Harrison. Any more ideas?

    I'd also like to see All American Annie Oakley's at the shootoff traps in the evenings of the preliminary week. Each category going against their members. Once all categories have a winner then each of those winners go against each other.

    I think it would be fun to watch.

    I would have thought there would be some ideas of how to spice up the program and make it more interesting. I guess folks go there to shoot.

    Barry, I'd still like to see a dbls marathon shot on the days when they only have 1 hdcp event. I know they tried games last year, but if I shoot I want them registered

    Barry, we don't have sufficient amounts of pie to pull that off.

    If it'll get more shooters to the Grand, I'll do it. Coconut cream please.

    Reliable rumor has it that more banks will be used during the program and shoot offs will be held as soon as possible after the event ends. That will make the shoot offs easier to watch for more folks, that should qualify as an "event".

    The powers that be sure scared off enough dbls shooters after shooting in the dark last year. I have had enough of that. The greatest and the largest shooting facility in the world and the "brains" only use 2/3 of the of the fields. Enough said!!!!!! RON

    A 100 yard dash with all the 200 straights for the Clay Target championship Plus, betting windows and odds. What a thought. The trapshooting world would be on the edge of their golf cart seats. Of course the State would want 15% and WPT would demand broadcasting rights..
