    I haven't been on this site in awhile as I have been very busy with many things. I thought it was worth posting on here that a good friend and fellow trapshooter passed away this past week in Fred McKean of Troy, IL.

    My best wishes and prayers go out to his family and friends. I sure will miss him.

    Best,
    Michael Ruebhausen TSK25

    I can't remember ever being at the Edwardsville gun club in the past 15 years when I didn't see Fred, until last weekend. My sympathies and condolences.
