    Me and my kids were at the SCTP nationals for all four days. I had to work Sat. night and the team was getting medals for third place trap so we hung in as long as we could. The kids got there medals and trophy and we stayed as long as we could to watch the other team. It got to the point we had to leave, right before all the guns were given away. I was 10min away from Sparta and my phone rings, your son won a gun, a ruger pistol... Cool I thought, are you sure it was Hunter I asked, yep I am standing right here,I watched them pull his name and read it. I hang up an tell my son, he is so excited. Then my phone rings again, a coach from a team down the road from our club, hey Hunter just won a gun our you still here, no I have to go to work. 3 more phone calls telling me Hunter won a Gun and my son who is very,very,very excited. For a week and a half I have been waiting after talking to SCTP on 7/25 and today Karen tells me she does not have my son down for winning anything, she is going to check into it!!!! I think with one phone call, maybe a name of close spelling, but 5 phone calls in 15 min? I don't know were this is going, but it is gettn fishy already!!!!!!!!!

    intriguing subject line

    not much anyone one can do about your problem, though

    what were you expecting?

    Karen Peterson is a very straight forward person. I would not suspect anything "fishy" from her.

    There is a is going in in the SCTP office and I am sure she is feeling the pressure right now.

    Perhaps the approach I would take is asking for a list of the winners. Also, perhaps 7771 is correct, maybe you needed to be present. We went back to the camper by that time, our kids wee wiped out.

    Not knowing the particulars, but in Illinois, a minor can't own, let alone win a handgun...

    2 years ago ,My name was pulled for the parliament Coach gun shootoff. I did not know it,and was 15 min. late getting signed in. That was 3:15 PM. Some guy by the name of Lucky got extremely nasty and beligerent with me and let me know that he was running the show. The head man at Parliament Coach was also very pissed. I think thats why they don't do the shoot off any more. Another great ATA promotion by Mr. Lucky a great representative of the ATA. By the way,the shoot off started about 7:45. Clyde Doll
