    This weekend, June 15th, 16th and 17th the Minneapolis Gun Club will be hosting the 9th annual MGC Handicap Championship.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=MGCHandicapProgram2012002.jpg" target="_blank"> MGCHandicapProgram2012002.jpg </a>

    We will start on Friday throwing 100 Singles, 100 Handicap and 100 Doubles targets.

    Saturday will be 100 Singles then the 200 Handicap targets. The Champion will be decided by the combined score of the Handicap targets. $1300.00 added money on the combined Handicap with a custom Tilden Trophy buckle to the Champion.

    Sunday, Fathers Day, will be 100 Singles, 100 Handicap and 100 Doubles.

    On Friday and Sunday we will have traps available to "Shoot your Doubles Anytime". Shoot 'em in between events or wait until you're done with Singles and Handicap. Your choice.

    Saturday afternoon we will be offering a FREE roast pig dinner to shooters and their guests compliments of Neil Winston.

    The added money and Jim White Trophy buckles are made possible by Valley Automotive Group in Apple Valley MN, and J & S Custom Guns in Lakeville MN.

    You can view the program at the above website.

    C'mon out, enjoy the day's and bust some clays.©

    Is this a registered shoot? Is there a handsome man award?

    No Lit, no such awards but there is a special catagory just for you. I believe they call it SOF, senile old farts.

    You know Lit, your name would look good on their trophy. Right next to Jimmy Bowen's. Jimmy on top of course.

    Lit, the targets are registered. Hopefully, next weekend won't be as windy as this one. Although, Maltzie managed to run 100 at Owatonna, so its doable.

    However, your name won't go on the trophy plaque by just looking good. You have to shoot good.

    C'mon up and spend a few days.

    Lit. Your IA bud Steve is shooting a KX6 to get that 100. Yikes! If he can shoot a KX6 and get a hundred, I bet you could get 110 if you buy one.

    Here is last years winner to get his name on the perpetual plaque that is displayed year 'round in the clubhouse, Tom Mavencamp. Tom is one of the many youth shooters that have come out of the High School ranks in Minnesota. Him, along with others in the High School programs are fierce contenders for the Handicap Championship. They're cool, calm and pretty much worry free when it comes to shooting a good score.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=HandicapShoot2011005.jpg" target="_blank"> HandicapShoot2011005.jpg </a>

    Will another youth shooter take the custom buckle? Will one of the past Champions prevail and be the 1st to win the event twice? Will a toothless guy pickin a banjo from Missouri show up?

    Hope to see you there.

    Nice looking young man with the trophy but who the hell is Mr. Grump by the cooker. Jimmy, if you want people to come to the shoot, have one of your sweet young things that score pose next to the cooker. Old Grump there will scare people away.

    Mark, I'll work on that on Saturday. I'm sure Bobby Munson Jr. wouldn't mind some help.

    The Class Trophy's are here and ready to go. A nice product from Jim White Collection. You can wear them or display them on the stand.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=HandicapShoot2011002-1.jpg" target="_blank"> HandicapShoot2011002-1.jpg </a>

    The weather is going to be "summer" like. But, at least it looks like the winds will be slight. Its always calm at MGC.

    C'mon out and enjoy the weekend. Don't forget the FREE roast pig Saturday afternoon.

    I'll put up a $100 appearence bonus for the Lit to show but only under two conditions, one he must break at least 188 in the two caps and he must leave his girlfriends at home. The club grass does not need any fertilizer.

    Oh, one more thing, Jimmy needs to post a photo of the Lit and his $100 on this site so everyone can see the most handsome man. Lit needs to be in shorts of course, so we can all see his shaved legs.

    Mark Zauhar, with the $100 in his pocket.

    Ertz, that's a great offer. As much as I'd like to come up, it would involve coming up, returning home for a wee bit, then returning to da nord a few days later. Too much driving for an elderly coot.

    We're coming up 6/29 and staying until 7/5. That may make it possible (depending on family plans) to catch a day of the St. Cloud shoot...but as I say, "depending on family plans."

    Yours is a generous and tempting offer. Some may think Pride's $100 lure is generous, too...but 188 would mean a pair of 94s in 'caps. He knows darned well I haven't broken a 94 in any event since 1968.

    I'll be thinking of you all and looking for results on here. Hope to see you all before the year is up at some venue or t'other.

    Here is last years Tilden Trophy Handicap Championship Buckle. The Champion gets to pick his/her stone color in the rosette.

    18-27 yard event.....its up for grabs. The 2 yard "gift" from the ATA gives everybody a chance.

    Start time is 10:00 today.

    Hope to see you there.

    Come on Lit, a pair of 94's would be easy pickings for a man of your self proclaimed excellence. Remember, you'll be two yards closer then you were the last time you shot. I was going to make it a lower number but I did not want to insult you. After all, weren't you the guy that had Leo shaking in his shoes about your move to Missouri. Besides, you have all that knowledge from Eric Munson to help you out.

    Come on up Lit and so us your stuff, win the money and go home. One hundred bucks will buy alot of snuff.

    Friday was a good day!!! It was unusual shooting without windy conditions. Almost didn't know how to act.....oh, that was Handicap.

Nice shooting Scott, hope it continues throughout the weekend. Scott Messenger posted the only 100 for the day.

    So that's what Scott Messenger looks like! I thought the Lit had taken us up on our offers and showed up.

    Day 2 of the Minneapolis Gun Club Handicap Championship.

    The day started with rain showers all around us, but no morning rains and no wind at MGC. The weather conditions were good and the scores showed it. Neil Winston, Dennis Kecker and Dan Ward all posted 100 straights in the Singles event. Barry Gregerson followed up with 98 in B class. Nice shooting guys.

    AA Neil Winston 100 won flip over Dennis Kecker

    A Dan Ward 100

    B Barry Gregorian 98 won flip over Peter Falk

    C Richard McCoy 95

    D Cal Vraa 90

    The Handicap Championship started immediately after the Singles and the good scores came rolling in. Guy Hessler and Peter Falk both came in with 97's and were in line to go home with the Custom buckle and the money. The squads rotated banks, using eight fields, so everybody shot all the fields. With a short delay due to a rain shower, Tom Suter backed up his 94 on the first hundred with a 98 for a total of 192. Nice shooting Tom and congratulations to all the winning scores for the added money.

    1st Tom Suter 192

    2nd Steve Brua 189

    3rd Cheryl Demulling 189

    4th Troy Haverly 189

    5th Emma Olson 187

    6th Scott Steffen 186

    7th Ron Noren 186

    8th Guy Hessler 186

    9th Robert Smith 186

    10th Darwin Bridgland split with Jason Vlasak 184

    Dan Ward A Singles 100

    Emma Olson 5th Place in the 200 Handicap with a score of 187

    Tom Suter 1st Place in the 200 Handicap with a score of 194

    Thanks to everyone who shot today and thanks to Neil Winston for the roast pig dinner.

    Day 3, Fathers Day. Start time 9:30 AM. The weather looks fantastic.

    Hope to see you there.
