    I stopped by and shot singles on Friday AM and took a few photos.

    Weather is great, almost no wind to speak of.

    Great pictures and what type of digital camera was used??

    Used my Kodak DX6490.

    I purchased it because of the 10X lens. The newer models have 12x.

    As for the shoot.

    Great weather and the same is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, but I will be elsewhere.

    Targets were right on the money and I did not observe one come out of the house broken. I did not see anyone have a problem with the voice release.

    The workers were aggressive and more than once I saw two different people (on the same field) peek inside a trap house between squads to ensure it had enough targets.

    Nice Pictures Joe. It's fun to see trap clubs in areas other than my own. It appears that some of the shooters haven't read the sign on the back of the house though...

    Thanks!

    Obviously, picking up shells is only done when the club is open for practice, not the norm for registered shoots.

    With squads moving down the line in trap, a big hangup if all had to wait for hulls to be picked up by each squad.

    Just the way it is, for both trap and skeet.

    Joe,

    Nice pictures and thanks for the kind words concerning the workers at our shoot. We hope that everyone is having fun and enjoying our club. Can't ask for better weather!

    Just wondering what kind of filter you are using to make me look so old????

    Thanks again,

    Van
