    Are you kidding? My wife hits casinos anytime there is one close. She won $1900. & I hit for $500. in Tucson last week. More than I did at the SWGAH. We go to casinos @ Ind., Ohio, Ill, Mo. Az., NJ. and any state shoot that has a casino close.

    During the Southern Grand, a day trip is planned to the Hard Rock Casino. A bus picks up at the Silver Dollar and returns in late afternoon. Fun for those not shooting that day.

    When it comes to casinos, I might as well drive by and throw my money in the door and leave. Because if I go in, they are going to take it all anyway!

    Hey its your lucky day when you come to Ohio to shoot this year at the Cardinal.... Columbus has a brand new Casino that just open about 6 weeks ago. I myself haven't been there but my wife has ben there 3 or 4 time now.. and she has come home a winner every time.

    We also have a brand new Cabela's that just open this week down by the Polaris mall just off I-71 that you can stop at this year.

    John G.-

    Farmer John and I would bunk together at the Gateway shoot. We would stay at the small motel on Crystal Lake. At day break, I would go out and catch 14" crappies, then go for breakfast, then to the club.

    After the end of the days shooting, we would have a limo pick us up and take us to the Lac du Flambeau Casino. The casino would give us dicounted buffets and match play blackjack. The limo ride was free. I liked the Watermeet Casino because I enjoyed playing "Let it Ride".

    Now there's a casino near Cardinal Center? If I had my way and deep pockets the PSSA would relocate to a similar area. Looks like Cardinal can't do anything wrong or maybe a great idea to sponsor a ladies bus trip from Sparta to boost attendance!!

    I am a Project Manager for a Mechanical Contractor here in San Diego, we are part of a team that builds most of the Casinos in the area, and there are a ton! I can promise you this, they don't build 550 million dollar casinos on winners. Working on my first casino cured my gambling habit FAST! More money for this addiction. Cory

    From the fictious mob boss from Fools Die. Percentages never lie, casinos are built on percentages.

    I was a 21 dealer in my college days in Las Vegas. I remember the Slots Manager telling me one day the House took 78 cents of every dollar played in his department. But then someone went home with the other 22 cents....

    Well guys my wife's luck ran out this weekend. She gave back some her winnings for the times she won at the new Casino here in the Columbus, OH area. I took off for a trap shoot this last weekend and she had a girls night out at the Casino. I come home with a little bit of money and she lost money this weekend. One good thing come out of this was, I had fun and the wife had a good time on her girls night out.

    Just before I was going to shoot yesterday my wife asked me if I would like to go to the local casino here in Milwaukee. It was around 10am, not real busy, and I played a quarter machine.

    After three pulls, I hit a bar, then something that said 3X,4X,5X's, and then another bar. Long story short, I won $204.00.

    I told my wife let's get out of here winners before we give it back. I ended up buying some new shells and had a good day.

    I believe, if we could place gun clubs next to a casino, attendance would sky rocket. Suggest we shoot first, before we lose it before we actually went to shoot, so we still had some coin in our pockets for entry fees.

    Have stayed many times in Atlantic City, while attending the New Jersey State shoot. About 40 minute drive, but free room/Casino/spa make it worth the drive.

    Trap shoots or Flyers? There's an old Browning with "Harold's" in gold on the receiver for sale in Flyn's shop in Carson City, said it was the old man's personal gun, but who knows. I've heard stories of casino sponsored flyer shoots out behind the Mustang, but not any trap shoots. I wanted to go just for the experience around '89, but never made it up there with a friend who went regularly. I just wanted to see how those guys did under the pressure of knowing how much money was riding on them to win.
