    Event 3 Handicap he shoots another 100.
    Was with Leo and Karla over the weekend.
    He has concentration - maybe some of us can learn from that!!
    Balanced stance--cheek on gun. Unique approach.

    Karla,
    Things went well.
    Looks like Kingsburg will cool to the mid 80's
    starting Friday. About 93 today.
    This must be the coolest shoot in many years.
    Best of luck with the remainder of the program.
    By the way, the brand on the hat is "Otto".
    Was this a coincidence or did you plan it that way??
    One of your students made the leader board at 22 yard
    handicap; Mark Yuan. I guess he really paid attention to Leo.
    I'll email you.
    Our best to you and Leo and of course Otto.

    Mikey & Joanne

    I talked to Mark and his 99 was his personal best to date. He won B class, and very happy. The hat brand was an accident.

    Mike,

    Thank you for all your work with the Leo Harrison clinic in Oakdale. I had a wonderful time. Leo and Karla are wonderful people and it was a pleasure to get to know them. I learned much from Leo and have incorporated his techniques into my own shooting style.
    Without people like you doing so much of the grunt work, these great events would not be possible.
    Thanks again,

    Way to go Leo, I am always amazed at how he makes it look so easy and be the nicest guy on the line.

    CONGRATS to LEO and a huge THANK YOU for this past weekend we had a great time, although I think Cody enjoyed himself even more then I lol. We all learned alot not just from Leo and Karla from all of you that were there on Sun-Mon. thank you all for shooting with and being so supportive of the boys (Cody and Garrett) it's people like you that will keep this great sport alive!
    Didnt get to say goodbye to some of you but hope that everyone made it home safe and that we can stay in contact to some degree.

    When we have folks like all of you at Oakdale, it really makes it worth the four days of driving and pulling a trailer to get here. We have really enjoyed our time here at the CA State Shoot as well. Hope everyone can come our way sometime and shoot with us in Missouri. Thanks again for becoming a Leo's Elite student.

    Leo Harrison III takes California State Shoot HOA with a 1082 for Non-Residents.
    Resident shooter in AAA had a 1069.
    Other notables from our Oakdale Clinic were Craig Baxter winner Class
    Singles A with a 198, and Mark Yuan winner Class Singles B with a 197.
    Van Pierce also shot a 195 in Event 8.
    Congratulations to all.
    Looks like Leo's Elite Clinic worked really well for all that attended.
    Thanks Leo and Karla for coming out west for the second year in a row.

    He is an amature shooter just like everyone else until the ATA says differently. The only thing stopping everyone else from shooting like that is talent and practice. Leo has been shooting since childhood and I would bet that he has shot more practice than any 10 people on here have shot registered. Great shooting buddy. Show em how it's done. John

    There are super stars in all sports. Practice won't put you in the HOF or make you a Babe Ruth or a Leo H. Being born with exceptional hand to eye coordination means much more than practice. Brad Dy made the 27 yard line in less than 1 year. I have been practicing since 1955 + over a 100 thousand registered and never got past the 24 1/2 yard line.

    I feel it is time to get on my pulpit and explain a clear look at this sport. God has blessed me with the priviledge to have shot with the "pros". Brian, you bitch about the fact that they are pros, not so, I have watched Pat Mcarthy practice shooting doubles in a raging snowstorm at the State road gun club at night practicing prior to his trip to the western grand.Drew Waller suffered a stroke, dry=fired 200 times every night just to be able to fire a gun again! Leo, bad back, etc. we had to carry his gun from one trap to another years ago, hot, he would struggle to the line and that face would be glued to the stock, another 25, until the 200 were broken, The amount of practice, dedication and true love of this sport is what separates tthe good from the bitchers.When they have out worked, out practiced the vast majority of the shooters on this forum, it's high time we acknowledge their ethics and realize how lazy the rest are.I know of not one elete shooter who has gotten more out of this sport than they have put in! incinerate em!
