    What's your point? Today it's gonna be a "heat Index" of close to 100 in Waukesha, WI for the Handicap Championship of the State Shoot. Next week looks pretty brutal at Iowa too.

    Should they relocate all major shoots to accommodate weather forecasts?

    From the Accruate Weather Site,
    "However, the worst of the heat will likely come later in the week as the center of heat wave shifts eastward.

    Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., could approach 100 degrees with temperatures feeling dangerously hotter due to high humidity."


    I think this will put Vandaila right in the middle.
    It's a hot summer, all over, Sparta is just like most places, get over it.

    It is currently 108 Heat Index at the Owatonna gun club in Minnesota. Worse than yesterday which I did not think was possible.

    Cripes the heat index is 100+ in St. Cloud, MN today and we're sub zero frequently in the winter.

    I grew up a mile south of the Complex at Sparta. On the 14th of July 1954 The actual temperature was 114 degrees not heat index but actual temperature. with a wind. The corn leaves turned white that day.

    Heat index at 8:45pm in Eagle Wi. is 105. Was around 110 at Waukesha for the Wi. State shoot. So what'e the problem. I've had 13 angioplati's a quad by-pass, and 7 stents. I survived shooting and being a shoot-off ref for about 4 hours today.

    In the 1950s we were a lot younger and could stand the heat. the ones on here that think heat is great, wait when you get in wour 70s and 80s and want shoot and can't because of the heat. HENRY
