    Wow....I'm so glad that there is no serious injuries. My thoughts are with my fellow shooters.

    Just got off the phone with my friend Scott (Skippy) who was in that trailer completely on its side in the second to last photo when it rolled. Said he's stiffer than hell but pretty sure he's ok. Said it was like it all happened in slow motion. The trailer bumped hard a couple times, started leaning and then broke over center and started down on its side. He confirmed there is no power on the east end but said there seems to be power on the west as far as he can tell in the new camping area. Probably run in from another transformer due to the distance from Service road.

    Well I quess a couple of broken ribs and a tree branch in the head are the worst of it. Several campers rolled over or tipped on their sides. Power is out. Thats all I know so far. Said it went thru about 5:20 only lasted a minute or so. I was told their very lucky the regular crowd was not there or it may have been very bad. Bill

    I really hate to see this. We pulled out yesterday (Sat.) morning because we got sick of the rain, wind and mud. I know a few of those campers and I'm just sick at the sight of those pic's.
    Sure glad to hear everyone is OK, Mason has a little bit of clean up before the State Shoot in a few weeks. I'm sure it will look a lot better then.

    I just called some friends at the shoot....said it was a disaster area. They were up town eating when the storm hit. Downed wires are the main concern.

    Just talked with Greg Johnson and his family made a mad dash through the storm for a trap house when their camper started moving around. Hit right as they were calling people for the shootoffs. They nearly ran into a downed wire on the way. Hopefully no one seriously hurt.

    Not sure, but it sounds like they don't have power. May want to call before heading to the shoot tomorrow.

    WOW!! Looks like people were very lucky. Despite the damage its just stuff. Stuff can be fixed and replaced. Lives cannot. Looks like somebody was watching over them.
