    You're welcome, Matt. I haven't caught you in it yet so we must be out of phase.

    I ask Kathy every year what it takes to get my name on my parking spot. And every year she says she submits the list of delegates to whoever makes the signs and beyond that she doesn't know.

    It won't surprise me if the year I'm no longer delegate my name will appear on the parking spot sign. LOL

    Yeah. They've put up about six, I think. Nebraska, South Dakota, Ontario, Illinois, and a few others.

    mcv--those are the shelters that the various States that have donated money have purchased. There is one at every other trap now all the way to bank 11 of the 27. They have a sign hanging on the back of them featuring the State that donated the money. See "ShootinSue's" pictures. She has a pic of the shelter donated by South Dakota. From bank 11 on they have the covered wagons and big White Flyer tents set up. Hopefully by next year the permanent shelters will extend the full length of the 3.5 miles of Trap line.

    Matt, put your gun up and save all those $$ you're dumping downrange ... you're stinking the joint up, anyhow.

    Pick up the camera & take more pikkers.
