    This has really been a different Grand with all the horse---- that has been going on with a qualifier for the big money being sent home { if this is true} and with Frank Rively being sent home {if this is true}. I guess that someone has stepped on some toes that were tender and that person did not like it too much. I think that there should not be anything said until all the facts are in and then the punishment be imposed on the guilty party My 02 cents worth

    The only other thing that needs to happen is a short yardage shooter needs to come in at the last minute and scoop up the 100K!

    If a short yardage shooter could do that it would give us all HOPE---But then they would call him a sandbagger---The 27yd'ers would die---JMT---SJB---

    I think the only way a short yardage shooter could get a punch for winning the $100K is by invoking the known ability rule. After all the $100K shoot-off is not an ATA event is it? JRM

    the $100,000 shoot off is based on ATA events and governed by ATA rules.

    What a Grand indeed!!! What makes me wonder about the 100 G's is why no top shooters from sporting clays or skeet are shooting here for the money??? For that kind of cash they should be coming out of the wood work don't you think. Now confusion about Frank and the other officer who may be stepping down to add to this!!! I smell a rat somewhere!!! Do you think this could be a hoax or put on with the money??? I had thoughts about it from the start and now add, no other shooters, and the rumer of two people stepping down??? All money going to one shooter??? Break-em all. Jeff

    The reason top sporting clays and skeet shooters are not here is because they don't have a chance in hell of breaking the scores it takes to win in this game.

    Shotgunfun, this is a shootoff for $100K. Only those who qualified can participate and theefore no yardage can/should be awarded just like any other shootoff. The yardage was already earned by qualifying. JRM

    Mark, Wayne Mayes has already shot a 100 from the 27 (Todd Bender is leading him in targets right now) and George Digweed is the best shooter in the world and YOU don't think he has a chance. It only costs 18 dollars to join and whatever the targets cost there to try, even if they put you on the 27 for not having enough targets reg. before the shoot, it still is a open shoot to all!!! So no-one out there has even thought about this possiblity at all!!! I guess I'm the only one!!! Break-em all. Jeff

    OK So its $20! I must have been thinking about last years membership!

    There was a rumor going around that Mike Hampton was "out" as well. Anyone have any insight on this?
