    Mike,

    Was supposed to board the big bird today the 18th bound for the Iowa State than onto the Grand, but a few Medical problems have changed our plans.

    Will have to wait until next Summer, I envy you lucky guy's that are attending and wish everybody the best of luck and good times.

    Have been lucky enough to attend 12 Grands and every one was as good as each other, good targets, good people and good times.

    Received my program 10 days ago, they know how to torture a guy.

    Bust em all..........

    Release Trigger.........Downunder.

    Mike: Do not keep any heavy throwing objects near your presence as I am going to stop in and meet you.

    Clay Addict if this is your first time with the trailer, be sure to follow the signs and enter through the camping entrance via Hill Prairie RD off Rt 18. I was in Sparta on Friday and they are working hard to get everything ready.

    High seventies, 5 to 10 out of the SW, a sprinkle in the evening to keep the dust down... and PBB pattin Giacamo on the back every half hour... Sparta ain't my place to live, but as a shootin place, it is great. Hi Mike, and I'm still working on it. Waiting for my bud Bluerock to pop for a tent.

    I'm going down to the homegrounds next week and cut my lot if it needs it. They don't cut it close enough for me. Plus I just like going there and making things real neat.

    You mean the St. Louis Albert Pujols baseball team. A chance to see the best baseball player who ever played the game. ( and I'm a Cubs fan )
