    Has there ever been a perfect score shot by a squad of five in a 100 or 200 bird event in a ATA event and when/where did it happen??

    There have been several. I know Leo, Frank Hoppe and 3 others (dont remember who) broke a perfect 500 in 16's twice in one week at the Missouri state shoot a few years ago.

    That's as close as I have been.

    I think Kiner has said that he was on a 999 squad once. :)

    I thought you were talking about me and four girls in bikinis.

    Yes - at the Silver Dollar in FLA there is a picture of five guys who shot 500x500. It hangs over the squadding / cashiering window.

    Regarding that 999 squad...

    Don't ask who (complements of his squad mates) had to wear a special tee shirt the next day.

    We were the second 999, the first was in KY a couple years earlier.

    They always have to pour salt on the wound. LOL Just ask them when they last ran a 199 ?

    Like Brad told me-- They always remember the one that missed so 20 years from now they will remember me and not be able to name the other four. There is no such thing as "bad" publicity.

    One other piece of trivia, this happened during the prelim singles, the next day for the Chmpionship Singles I was the only one on the squad to break 200.

    I have a couple of images that a good friend was kind enough to share with me.

    I believe it was the first 500x500 at the Grand in 1993.

    An amazing feat that maybe someone can add more details.

    Last years Western Zone Shoot squad was Ed Wehking, Ronnie McMahan, Steve Williamson, Ron Christiansen, and Wynn Isom. I was told this was the first time a 500x500 was shot in Utah. I believe Steve and Ronnie have a couple.

    Here's one from last summer in Spanish Fork, Utah. They got the first 500 and then lost a few. Not bad shooting at all.

    TN Not to be agrumentative but, there were 5X5's prior to 1993. I was on one in the Champion of Champions Race in 1983.

    P1 Ray Stafford

    P2 Marcellous Osceloa

    P3 Frank Powell

    P4 Jim Brown

    P5 Phil Kiner

    That was the first one I was on and I am here to tell you, being the last shot for the 500 is about as much pressure as you will ever experience.

    Phil,

    I'm somewhat sceptical about the photo so can anyone confirm it's authenticity?

    I would love to hear more about the it since it's an amazing feat in singles, but sounds impossible in caps not to mention at the big dance.

    Sincerely,
    TNCoach

    That was probably the only sign around that had the date on it.

    The Grand American Handicap in 1993 was won with a 99.

    If you guys would reread Austins first thread, there is nothing in there about Handicap. Where the heck did that come from. I would bet that nobody has run a a 500 squad in Handicap.

    The confusion is coming from Coach thinking the GAH sign in his picture means that the event was the big handicap at the Grand. Seems to me they used that sign in just about any photos from the Grand, it was not specific to the event.
