    Received my schedule from Glen Rock (PA) yesterday and they have brought the final traditional shoot, the day before Easter shoot, to an end.

    Once upon a time, they held a shoot every Labor Day, but ended that when George Landis Jr stepped aside.

    They used to hold the York County Championship the weekend after Mothers Day, but the PSSA put the Keystone Open on that weekend.

    Now the day before easter shoot has not been scheduled. I remember one year when we got there and found six inches of snow on the ground. The crowd was down, but we held the shoot. I remember one year when Easter fell before daylight savings time returned and the last squad was shooting in near-darkness.

    This year, DSL returns earlier than in the past. I think that we would have had a decent turnout if the temperatures are not too low.

    Oh, well. I guess time marches on.

    Jim,

    You were lead-off on a handicap squad that my son & I shot on, at GR last summer. On the last trap (Gerry was the puller) it started pouring down rain. We had a great time and enjoyed your sing-song "puuullllll". Nu Ox is having a shoot this Sunday, maybe we'll see you there.

    Hey Laura,

    How's Steve and the rest of your clan? I guess youall aren't shooting the HOM?

    I hope to see you soon at one of the shoots. Carney has a registered shoot 29/30Mar. maybe then. The Mt Airy SCTP will start about then too.

    I've enjoyed your call too Jim, Devi introduced us last year at Elysburg.

    Hi Guy!

    We're all good. Ready for some shoots to start!

    We haven't managed to fit the HOM in. We may miss the 1st SCTP due to spring break. We'll try to make Carney on the 29th. The 30th is the first day of the York Co. league up at Glen Rock. Hopefully we see you at Carney or Mt Airy.

    Hope your crew is well.

    Laura

    Nu-Ox hasn't held the shoot for March the last 2 years. Better check before you go. I know from experience, going and no one showed up. I saw it listed in the York County league and wondered if it is really a shoot. Ron
