    Freddy had it figured out for sure. I did okay too, but boy Sunday was BAD, worst scores I have ever posted! I think I will blame it on being distracted as the awning came off the RV the night before, or perhaps this is an opportunity to get a new gun, hmmmm.....

    Anyone who has not been to the Tri-State should give it a go. Great shoot with excellent people! The food is great, excellent fellowship and hey, there is a shoot. The Special Event can make it worth your while if your game is on! And yes, shoes are optional, just watch out for all the damn yankees from PA, they talk funny!

    I have heard it called Corn Hole. And Freddy has some skills. There is a secret to the game and it does not take long to figure it out.

    At a meeting last night we agreed to do away with the target requirements.

    Welcome all shooters new and old.

    Talked to many Pittsburgh area shooters at a Charity Shoot over the weekend, lots of folks headed for WV. The 200 Handicap is a popular event!

    Good for you Fred concerning target requirements - I wish more clubs would give the target requirements a little more thought especially for first and second year shooters - I realize there are several reasons to have target requirements but this generally will effectively shut out young shooters - or older shooters who are not able to get around to all the shoots as they did in the past - Thanks again Fred
