    Shot yesterday and the owners of the club had umbrellas out, they made a world of difference.Very simple installation--5gal spackle pail with concrete surrounding a piece of 1" emt, a set screw type wing nut and in looked like a 5' golf umbrella.

    Sparta should have these.

    And when the wind, which can move outhouses, comes, those five gallon cement filled shuttlecocks go flying towards you!

    I'm holding out for Mason's shelters...

    Think I need one of those umbella hats that were so popular years ago.

    They come in solid colors now, besides that gay rainbow type.

    We could have this kind of shade if we all shoot the same yardage.

    Mr. Barker:

    Are you referring to the brockabrella? I'm not sure they're still available in stripes or solids.

    Yes, i found them on line.

    One us 23 inches in dia.

    Being older and balding, I don't care if I look silly on the shooting line trying to avoid sunstroke.

    The trees were never on the line, also here we get a lot of sky background targets, on a good day they look like garbage pan lids, take away the wind-zero excuse to miss.

    I'm in the Villages Fl, the recession has not touched this place, 2.1% increase in real estate value last year, 3950 real estate closings . 1200 were old properties. one hour from Robinson Ranch & 11/4 hr from the Silver $. This place is Disney World for grown ups. The Tax saving & booze savings are comparison with NC.
