    Given that Stu Welton and Mike Stears were probably there, that's quite an accomplishment for Jim. Also note that Jim is a Senior Vet.

    congratulations Jim!

    Pocatello,

    With that score it wouldn't matter much who was there.
    Jim didn't leave much room at the top!

    Lyle, I saw Mike run 200x200 in doubles at Pocatello a few years back, and I'll bet Stu has dozens of 100x100. I'm just saying that Jim is a tough doubles competitor, and in winning he beat some of the best.

    No disagreement here POKY! I think Stu has "averaged" in excess of 98 on some years. I was only complimenting the 99 as being good enough to beat the field, usually, no matter who was there.
    Happy Memorial Day to you.

    Scott,

    Does it count if I play cards better than Stu? I took his money in Gin this afternoon, only to lose it to Jim Bauer's daughter. She is a tough competitor at the card table.

    Congratulations to Dick Goodson from Kellogg Idaho with the Championships in Singles and Handicaps at the Idaho State Shoot! Dick has been shooting well this year and is planning to hit them hard in Vernal this year also.

    Great Shooting Dick!

    Congrats does go to Jim. He has always been a tough competitor. He deserves it. You must also understand the shoot was in Boise on Memorial Day Weekend, therefore the wind was blowing. You may also note some big names were there in the tune of Ricky Marshal (his first time shooting Idaho), Jeremie Summers and Chad Sorensen. These are all top notch national shooters. 99 in the wind is a great score and he should be very proud, as we are of you Jim. No, Mike was not there. He didn't shoot last year and is not shooting this year. Mike, his dad Shane and I are have been burning up the golf courses and having fun.

    Jim is a great shooter. I think he shoots doubles so well because of all the second shots he gets to shoot with his buddy,,,,,, Dave

    Nice shooting Jim
