    Since many shooters can't afford to shoot trap this year at the Grand or win $100,000 it has been suggested other added events be added.

    Tonk games at Harry the Hammer Casino, locations to be disclosed each day to stay one jump ahead of the authorities. Cards and arm bands provided at event.

    Curling events for both ladies and men down on the parking lot behind banks 1, 2, and 3. Being in good physical condition not a pre-requsite, but being able to bend over is.

    Tron's Goat Roping Rodeo each night after shootoffs in front of the outdoor vendors tents. No fratenizing with the goats after the event.

    A reloading seminar on how to reload illegal shells using Grand 2010 hulls at the large army surplus tent over by the Cowboy Action Range. Several well known TS.Com posters demonstrating with one well known one from Virginia.

    A how to demonstration on filling sandbags will be demonstrated by several shooters from the Southern Zone, but not limited to them exclusively as many other states have a very large quota of these target managers.

    A contest to see who can fling their shotgun the farthest each night for shooters who blame their low scores on their gun. The winner each night will receive one box of reloads which cannot be shot on the Grand grounds.

    These events are the only ones brought to my attention at this time, but I'm sure there will be several other events available for the shooters who can't afford to shoot as many events as they would like.

    Someone suggested for an event to have a "pin the tail on the donkeys"but since there is shortage of donkeys and the PETA discourages cruelty to animals it may not happen. However it was suggested that since we couldn't use donkeys that we use the ATA ED and EC instead, I can't imagine why they would suggest such a thing!

    I should not be the only person to have good ideas for "Other Events" at this years 2010 Grand, come now and help with some new events to help pass the time when you can't afford to shoot. However I have one more to add, but I don't want to be a hog about this.

    Perhaps we could have a "Hog Calling Contest" right in front of the grandstand after the shootoffs. But instead of Hog Calling, lets make it more appropriate for 2010 and call it a "Whinning Contest". All the WHINNING POLICE on TS.Com will be selected to judge this contest and there will be great number of them. However there may be no contestants for this event as the WHINNING POLICE have already ORDERED all the whiners who indicated they wanted to use reloads "To stay Home! You Whiners"!

    This would have been a great event, I can just hear the winner of it saying pitifully "But I can't afford those high priced shells we are forced to buy!" Then hearing the judges shouting in unison "You should have stayed Home, you loser!" and laughing loudly!

    Is there a local landmark where TS.com posters could meet and kick each other's ass?


    A'la Fulmer's parking lot?

    Amateur barrel porting contest. Open to anyone with a drill and vise. Extra credit for using K-80 barrels.

    Biff, How are you going to get the whiners there?? They p--s and moan with never having been there or intending to go.

    Maybe Tron could get Hillary there for the big soot-off and help supervise the money pay-out.

    Great thread for a change. Bob

    biff, how about having an off site location for the whinners? Say Chicago metro area. Iam sure they would enjoy the venue!

    If you want to have a real pin the tail on the donkey contest, that might be arranged. I've met some locals down there the last few years and they seem like the type of folks that would provide a place for the event as well as handle security. Iam sure they could give them PETA's a nice ride down the Big Muddy located nearby! Haven't seen any donkey's around there but Iam sure these ole boys will find us one or two. Heck, that might be an event all in itself :)

    Heard that a fella from Minn. was alittle taken back that he was not acknowledged to given representation at the illegal load reloading siminar. He would have necessary equipment and graphs to prove they were illegal after reloading thereof. I think your apology is inorder!

    I most want to participate in the goat roping contest and if I can submit my desire at this time, please acknowledge.

    backwoods,

    You have to cash in one of the Handicap events before you can sign up for any of the "other event's" that biff has mentioned and then you have to use new rope, would that be a problem ..? WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Backwoods, thanks for such good input! However the Chicago Metro area is out, the previous administration had already selected East St. Louis at 11 pm on consecutive Friday and Saturday nights or till none are left standing!

    The committee still wants the ED and EC to be used for the pin the tail on contest, not that they think of them as donkeys in any resemblance whatsoever. I do understand that the new ED is quite athletic and will be the prize pin if pinned!

    Your Minn. pick is certainly well known on here as is the Virginia fellow, so it is possible they could co-chair the workshop. The reason the Virginia fellow was picked in the first place as he was the one who explained on another thread as to how easy it was to cheat by reloading illegal loads using the 2010 Grand American empty hulls!!!

    It has been brought to my attention that the IDNR plan to hold a "Noodling Event" at the strip pit on the east end which has a nice parking lot. They indicated if any of the shooters should possibly lose a finger to some of the vicious fish,especially a trigger finger, the participant probably wouldn't have been in the shootoff anyway and that would give them something "To Really Whine About!" While the WHINE POLICE on TS.Com would be shouting at them, "They Shoulda Stayed Home!"

    Your entry will be turned in to Tron for the "Goat Roping" and he will need to look at your papers to see if you are a registered pedigreed goat lover!
