    I don't have the results but I really enjoyed watching the shoot-off for handicap champion runner-up.

    I meant to add (if you weren't there) it was Fogelson, Storm, Beals, and Schrode. Rand Schiltz (out-of-state) shot the same score.

    The handicap champion was the woman who also won rookie of the year with a 96. Fogelson won the runner-up.

    Heather Archer was Champion, Gary Fogelson was Runner-up, Rich Shrode was Long Yardage CHampion and Dave Carter was Long Yardage Runner-up.

    You can find the rest of the results on the PITA website: www.shootpita.com

    Now, as for the "DUMB" idea to move our state shoot one week later...We made the decision (in 2007) to schedule to shoot one week later because we were having difficulty getting kids to keep score and getting kids to come and shoot as school was still in session here in Oregon.

    Seeing as we had at least 19 kids shoot, I think we made the right decision. What we may have lost in Washington Shooters, we made up for in Oregon kids.

    I was at the Oregon ATA Shoot held in Walla Walla earlier this year and there were only about 11 Oregon PITA shooters there. So, we certainly didn't lose many (if any) of our Oregon shooter to the Washington ATA when they didn't want to travel to Walla Walla for the Oregon ATA.

    I do believe that it is the Oregon State Shoot and the Oregon shooters we are trying to accomodate.

    Hey Jennylin, No, I wern't in Spo-cane. The surgery on the arm (January) is still improving at turtle speed. I'm just recently able to shoot 100 birds at sporting a couple of times with the rather slow place but I've not yet shot 100 trap birds of any persuasion at the usual registered pace. I WILL be at Bend for the first shoot at the new venue but will likely be limited to 100 birds a day and the second and third days will be based on how the day before went. I keep complaining to the Doc that I'd not do the surgery again with the sluggish progress, a numb hand, and painful wrist/elbow and he just comes back with "lets see what you think next year!" Well, at the moment, it's to heck with next year I'm losing most of a 2nd year of shooting with the arm surgeries. Give Dave a hug! Seeya in Bend I reckon....Bob Dodd

    Here's how I see it. Why would 2 states compete with each other for shooters. We need to support each other and create schedules that do not conflict with major shoots in the Northwest. I am certain that there would have been more shooters at the OR PITA state shoot and there would have been more shooters at the WA ATA state shoot had both shoots not been scheduled for the same weekend. OR PITA directors, you should have scheduled for this week. Then we could have all been able to attend both shoots. Something to consider for next year.

    Chris,

    You may be right. This week may have been better. However, I don't believe that either of our shoots have taken a serious hit with our change to this previous weekend. I may be wrong, but considering our two shoots would be anywhere from 264 to 625 miles apart depending on where they're held (Hillsboro-Medford-Cottage Grove and Spokane-Walla Walla), I don't think we've had a whole lot of shooters who have had to make a major decision when it comes to where to go. Given the distance, most would not have travelled to the farther club no matter what weekend the shoot was held.

    I agree that major shoots should not compete against each other. Our intention was obviously to increase our attendance not to detract from it or any other shoot.

    Jen
