    You can shoot on the practice fields. Or better yet test some new guns. Most vendors have try guns available.

    You're right, of course, Karla but some of us are more recreational than others. I shoot for fun and comradery. Others are there for more.

    What I would like to see though is an Annie Oakely consisting of all the first team All Americans that can make it. That would be fun to watch and a great promotional tool.

    How much should the entry be and the buy-back be. Limit of one buy back.

    Believe me or not, but shooting is what Leo and I do for fun and we have always said, when it gets to be a job, not fun any more, we will find something else to do. He is fortunate enough to be successful in his shooting efforts but the defination of success is different for everyone. Bottom line for us, if we don't look forward to going to a club, we won't be going.I will be working hard this year to help make the Grand a more enjoyable shoot for everyone. If anyone needs some help or a question answered, come to the Members Services desk and we will be glad to try and help you (this isn't free shooting tips, it's "Grand" questions/answers)

    I believe you K. I know that it's true. I'm jealous of your squeeze's ability though. What a great deal to be in love with your job.

    I can verify that the sporting clays are fun...Ken Ian & I shot them several times last year on days that we were done shooting the main events early in the day...you mentiion a certain page in the program, have they been sent out already because we didn't get ours & I was wandering if I should call for new ones? I hope the lady doing the manicures will be there again...that was a treat for me! Also the "annies" etc. sound like alot of fun...
    See you there! Pam D (& Karla don't work to hard, it is supposed to be your vacation!)
