    They say (they?) the storms will be through by 1pm. Fingers crossed? Trigger finger is itiching to get started at the best place in the South to shoot at.

    Blade, It could be worse. We got over a inch of snow this morning and I'm at work. Sure wish I was there waiting for the rain to quit! Go on over and see Mark at MBABGllc he usually has a bottle of good bourbon! :)

    All were good targets. But even with clear lenes on my one shooting eye they were hard to find. Hopefully the sun will be out tomorrow. redman make sure you say hey to me.

    I shot The Hall of Fame Shoot there 2 years ago. It was the same weather, rained like the devil on Sunday. Would rather be there regardless, wife has credit cards and I have to work due to that, I'm 72!

    Almost had to walk off the line during singles due to dehydration. 92 degrees. Went back to the Motorhome, cranked up the A/C, ate 2 bananas and guzzled about 2 gallons of water. Felt like a new man for caps. Lesson learned about hydraytion. Perfect targets thrown! Some good scores and really missing some people with no-rustable Kholars who WORK and can't be here! :eek:)

    blade,

    If 92 degrees whipped your butt then you better start preparing now for the Grand. That's cold temps around here. LOL

    Flagarto....... Jerry, please don't "spill the beans" on me. I'm trying to set up grntitan for the August "kill" at Sparta. I figure I had him set up for a bet of Brats and Beer! Before ya know it if the word gets out on me any further, Big Don and maybe even Dr. Longsh ---t will want some action. :eek:) A "non-rustable Kholar" is a Kolar that doesn't rust. Whew!

    What can you do? Enjoy the thunderstorm.

    When I was a kid, we lived in Omaha, on a hill. My mom would turn the sofa around and make popcorn. We'd watch the lightning from out of our big picture window as it rolled into town.

    Hey Blade - how is the weather today on the hill? Cool and cloudy I would guess?
