    My son and I were at the WA STATE shoot this last weekend and had a great time. The highlights of the week for Cameron and I were shooting side by side 75 straights on the last 3 houses on saturday in the singles followed up by Cameron running the singles on Sunday for the 100 straight as well. The down side is that I left my small Nikon Camera with all the photos and videos of these accomplishments that my wife took somewhere around the club house on Sunday afternoon. If anyone found the Camera I would be more than happy to pay a reward for its return. Even if someone found it and wants the camera then please send the data card and I would be just as happy as these are such fond memories of accomplishments that will be hard to ever duplicate and capture again. If found please P/M me and we can discuss the reward and were to send it to.

    Did you check with Edsel at the cashier booth? I've lost many items at the club and someone always seems to turn it in.

    Trap shooters are some of the most honest people.

    My wife mis-placed her eye glasses at the Inland Empire Shoot and somebody turned em in. I lost a camera once by putting it on top of the car roof while loading some other stuff and then drove away.

    What a relief, got a phone call today from Edsel at the Spokane Gun Club saying that all of a sudden my camera has shown up in the lost and found there. I told him I would like to give a reward to whomever turned it in and he said he had no idea who tuned it in as it just appeared and happened to see it while looking for something else. It was worth the 3 hour drive back over to Spokane to pick it up and be able to watch the video of my 13 year old son breaking his 100'th straight target and winning the Sub Jr. Championship at the same time. The video also shows me standing next to him and calling for and breaking the last target on the squad as well which was good because I honestly do not remember calling for or shooting the last bird, all I was thinking about was celebrating with my son on his accomplishment of that first 100 straight. All I can say to whomever turned it in is THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I hope your good deed gets repaid ten fold.

    I so glad you found it. My wife and I were there. Your son was a very
    nice young man. I was the guy who said your son and I broke our
    first 100 straight in singles on the same day only he was 13 and I
    was well a lot older.

    I glad someone found it and did the right thing.

    Thank you Bill, it is always a pleasure talking to you and your wife and seeing you guys at all the other shoots we go to. I know Cameron has shot with your wife several times and has really enjoyed it. He actually talks about you two quite often, saying how nice you guys are. Hope to see you at a shoot again soon - are you going to the Zone shoot? Cameron should be there, although we need to start saving every penny to pay for the trip to the Grand this year so Cameron can shoot in the Champion of Champions event that he qualified for at the state shoot. Hope to see you two sometime soon. If not, then enjoy the summer and your time on the water as well.
