    I finally got it all to click tonight!! After all the rounds of missing it by 1 2 or 3 I finally did it, what a feeling!! I was pretty happy and was urged to go do it again but missed the 20th bird for a 24 so a 49 was great. Then the guys urged me on again and bamm another 25 I was sooo happy and again tried but missed 17 and 18 but got a 23 so 97/100 dang I was floating. I finally did it and and know what you all talk about and have the mental pictures in my head, its great and thanks to all on their pointers,and help espeially Frank Aurea at our club in Busti! 8 months coming!

    I was very glad that I got to witness his 1st 25. I introduced Jerry to trapshooting back in March after we started dating! He shoots more than I do now...and I love it. Congrats and keep going one bird at a time...from your girlfriend and ONE of many "coaches"!

    Great going Jerry !!!

    That was a great night for you. If this is Busti, New York, that is a real nice club you are with. My wife is from Westfield and we were married in Mayville...A couple of years ago we travled from Canandaigua to Busti to shoot a weekend registered shoot and had a ball...it was our 35th anniversary that weekend and by accident we even found the Colonial Motel that we had stayed in 35 years before, so we stayed there for the weekend...(Like the wedding night, no action..LOL)

    Congratulations once again, and the members can be proud of another up and coming Champ from that club....

    Dave in SC..(Former NY)
