    While at the Grand a friend lost his wallet outside one of the rest rooms. He was leaving the next morning and we went to the lost and found and it had not been returned. We asked that they record his phone number and give it to anyone who might turn it in. I went in the next morning and found that the wallet had still not been turned in. Later that day out friend called and said that a very nice lady had called him and was sending his wallet to him by mail.
    Her husband had found it and was on the way to the line so he waited to turn it in the next morning. They got his number and called him. We very much appreciate them doing the right thing. What they could not know was that our friend is a wheel chair shooter.

    There are still very good people in the world and looks like some of them are trap shooters! Many thanks from the Mississippi Trap Shooting Association!

    "waited to turn it in the next morning." By the next morning the guy who lost it probably had to contact his credit card companies, cancel his debit cards, and spend the next night and morning worrying about it.

    Even if he was on his way to the line, the person who found it could have contacted the ATA office to let them know he had found it. That would have been doing the right thing.
