    Absolutely, and what's amazing is that the club has remained at the same location all these year. It would be nice, however, if they were open more.

    I was a member there for many years, great club and a good bunch of guys for sure ... The Weds night games used to be the highlight on the week for many, shooters would come from all over to shoot them and we all had a good time ...
    Not sure how many of the really old timers (Fred Vincenti, LeRoy Gallas,Gus Maris, Ray Rausch to name a few) are still hanging around but loved to hear them tell storys ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bill: I saw Ray and Mario Garritano a couple months ago. You should see the place 10:00 on Sunday morning. Every trap is going. Looks like the old days.

    Maywood is a great club. I have been a shooting member for a few years, and I always have a good time there. The trap chairman (John K.) is one of the hardest working gentlemen I have ever seen, he is always there taking care of business. The other officers there are always great to deal with. We are lucky to have a club like this.

    What about those of us who are planning on coming out on Sunday, November 8th? If Bill and company will not be there to cook, how about maybe Ed S.? He makes a mean Jambalya!

    Thank you, Rodbuster

    It was a great day to shoot today at Maywood. I don't know if we'll get any more days like we had today, for the rest of the year.

    If you were shooting from noon to 3 pm, you had fun. If you were doing anything else you weren't.
