    It looks like they had about 200 shooters yesterday. 97 won the doubles, 100's in the 16's and handicap wasn't posted the last I looked. Windy on thurs, fine on Fri. and today is to soon to tell. Excellent meal put on for the shooters and guests last night.

    A lot of shooters are missing a fine shoot.

    Great shoot in my opinion.

    Anyone know the outcome of the Handicap, I left right after I finished. Got a report that my score was good but no final scores posted on the IDNR website as of yet.

    Ronbo---I was runner-up in 18-21 yd. with a 94. If you are the one that shot the 95 in that class yes you won your yardage group. I think i have shot with you before and i looked for you after the Handicap Championship. I know there was a 98 and a 97 in longer yardage. I had to shootoff with 4 others just to get runner-up. It only took one box. I ran 'em and the others all dropped one. I shot the whole US Open and i agree with you, Great Shoot. My hats off to all who helped with the shoot. There was a couple small issues the first day but Sh%& happens.----Matt

    Thanks for the Update!

    Talked to Chris this monring, only 4 shooters recieved a punch.

    98-97-96-96

    The killer for me was that I missed the first target out and ran the next 49 targets!

    See you at the Il State Shoot!

    Your more than likely right on the TN shooters. Its just so damn hard to schedule a shoot and not interfere with another. I personally know the people who set the dates for the US Open and it was a matter of the lesser of the two evils type of thing in trying to pick dates. ----MATT

    Exceptional shooting conditions will be condusive to high scores. The class system is outdated as there is no way to stop sandbaggers.

    On behalf of the major sponsors of the US Open Trap held at the WSRC this past weekend, White Flyer; Winchester and Browning, we want to thank all the shooters that attended and participated. We hope you shot well and had a wonderful time.

    Kudos to the SSSF/SCTP event held on Saturday in conjunction with the Winchester 200 Singles - over 350 youth shooters and their teams participated.

    Thanks to Chris Hespen and Nicky Christian at the WSRC plus the entire Shoot Staff and Office folks but doing a great job - it was an excellent run shoot.

    As mentioned earlier, the US Open this year was up against other major shoots and the fact that the Illnois State Shoot was the next weekend. As we all know, finding a shoot date where it doesn't conflict with another major event is almost impossible. Nevertheless, the US Open Trap will continue and we'll all try harder for 2010 to add a new wrinkle here and there to get you to shoot this prestigious event.

    Again, thanks to all that participated. If you are one of those that attended and you think you have an idea to make the 2010 US open better, please drop me an email. Remember, this is a shoot for the shooters, if you don't tell us what you think or want, we never know.

    Exactly who do you think was shooting out of class?

    The sandbagger conspiracy theory is tired. Get over it.

    It is crazy to think that is why the numbers are down for trapshooting. For the vast majority of folks there was never any real money to be won anyway.

    Either do it for fun or don't do it. With money being tight, sometimes folks have to cut back on what they do for fun.

    Phil,

    I wanted to thank you for all your support of this and the many other events you attend. My son Alex was very excited to be able to place his name on the Junior HOA trophy shown below. It was his primary goal for attending this event. Thanks again for providing such nice awards.

    Regards,

    Brian Nicely
