    This is the first of our "Special" Jackpot shoots.

    This Saturday we will have a bunch of pumpkin and apple pies to give away. Shoot a 25 and get your pick of a pie. Any pies that aren't claimed will be given away by random drawing.

    Shooting will start at 10:00 AM and will continue till 4:00 PM.

    C'mon out....bust come clays and enjoy the day.

    You know that Bowen is such a nice looking gun. You would think though that Bruce would have exercised a little care as to whom he sold it to. It couldn't help Bruce's sales much with such an ugly guy holding that nice Bowen.

    Now if Bruce could have gotten that pretty lady pictured with Old Grizzly Wakowak to pose with the gun he maybe would have sold a few more.

    Some of us were out tuning up today, 35-40 mph winds, to be able to take home pie for the family.

    Tomorrow is supposed to be beeuuuutiful. C'mon out, bust some clays and enjoy the day.

    Brent, its $18.00 per entry. 25 singles-25 handicap.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=Welcome2.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    We welcome new shooters and will make you feel "at home".

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=Clubhouse5.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    We have one of the nicest facilities in the state on 75 well groomed acres.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=MplsKitchen3.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    We have a great kitchen which offers the best gun club food around. We will also be offering breakfast starting this weekend. Lots of good food at reasonable prices.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=Bobby2.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    Part of the $18.00 is paid back that day on a Lewis class option. How many places depends on how many shooters. We usually pay out 8-10 places.

    C'mon out and shoot some targets. We'd be glad to meet you. You can go to the above website for more information.

    We had a great turnout today in spite of the windy conditions. Again, 25-30 mph winds that made the targets take 4-5 jumps as they made their climb.But, when the pies are at stake......its worth it.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=pieshoot20092.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    Some of the shooters tried "scare" tactics, but that didn't work, they still had to break the targets. While trying to keep the hair out of their eyes.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=pieshoot20091.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    After all the ribbing and "horror" stories about the targets, a lot of shooters when home with the booty. Doc Lindquist in the pumpkin colored sweater was high gun with a 48 and he went home with the 14" Carmel Apple Walnut Crunch pie. That pie weighs about 10 lbs.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v662/jimw-mn/?action=view&current=pieshoot20094.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    1st Class.....Len Lindquist 48.......Curt Peterson 47

    2nd Class.....Ray Steffenson 43......Bob Lalor 43

    3rd Class.....Troy Smith 41.........Charlie Leavitt 41

    4th Class.....Troy Smith 39........Mike Herold 39

    Pie Winners......Mike Herold....Pat Blake....John Bacon...Scott Steffen....Charlie Leavitt....Dennis Kecker....Troy Smith....Curt Peterson...Bob Smith

    Thanks to everyone who shot. Mark your calenders for November 21, for our Turkey Jackpot Shoot. Hope to see you there.

    Well, Tommy may call Minnesota the land of Senator Franken but remember, he's from California. Ask him who his senators are?

    And that orange sweater seems to be making the rounds. Although I must say, it looks allot better on Lenny then it does on Jimmy Bowen. Jimmy looks a bit large in the midsection for it. I do have to wonder though what would make anyone put that thing on.
