    We have a young 13 year old shooter from Melbourne, Australia over at your Grand at the moment called Mitch Iles. He won the Aim youth handicap a couple of days ago. Keep an eye on him as he is one of the best young talents I have seen for some time. He is the Grandson of Bill Iles who finished second in your Clay Target Championship back in 1994. Bill is a good friend of Leo Harrison.

    My apologies, I hope the young man does well and enjoys a great life experience.

    Thirteen year old kids can't afford trips to the Grand whether from Australia or Indiana or wherever. They can't afford the guns and shells and they can't drive themselves to the traps to shoot. Their parents do this out of the goodness of their hearts, thank The Lord. Anymore asinine questions? Best wishes to the boy. I hope he hits them all.

    I am sure his mother and grandfather who are over there with him have sacrificed a bit to have him compete at the Grand.

    It wouldn't surprise me if a bunch of old grumpy men who can hardly shoot start giving unwanted advise to this kid and telling him what he is doing wrong.

    Hes one of our best prospects since, well, Russell Mark!

    Mitch is a great kid, expert shot and very humble. He shot a 149/150 to win that AIM handicap.
