    Coyote,
    I'll eat light in the morning and a light lunch.

    Early in the day I like to "feast" on 16 yard targets lightly basted with fresh hollandaise. Early in the afternoon lunch consists of 100 handicap targets served on a soft roll with onions, mushrooms and sauce. Dinner is a hearty serving of doubles targets roasted over a hearty fire on 1 ounce 8s.

    Some days I "eat" well, other days I seem to get less nutrition from these "meals", and occasionally I leave at the end of the day with a bad case of heartburn. Since I started "eating" with my blond sweetheart from Canton, Ohio, the heartburn days are getting further and further apart. Thanks, Dennis.

    Never give up.

    I like a light lunch and a good meal at supper. I find most gun clubs have too much food for lunch; a greasy cheese burger and large fries and soft drink and the heart burn afterward doesn't help for shooting a good score.

    On Shooting Days I start off with Steak and Eggs, bacon, etc....For lunch I usually whip up a Ribeye on the grill with some iced tea....Then in the evening another Ribeye smothered in mushrooms and onions. On non-shooting days the menu is the same!!! Sometimes at the shoots I have no money because I spend it all on steak!!..But I also LOVE chicken !!!...Sorry I have to go now, having steaks on the grill!!!!.........Uncle Sam, Pa.

    I usually eat a good portion for breakfast, like bacon, eggs, waffles, etc. It depends on where we are eating. Lunch depends on when I am shooting, and where I am at. Usually it is light, consisting of crackers, peanuts, or maybe a hamburger. For supper/dinner, always good! How good, depends on if I hit any options!

    A decent breakfast (early) then no more food until the shooting is done. Really has a bad effect of slowing me down on the last event of the day which is normally doubles.

    After the shooting, the first meal consists of cereal beverages.

    While I like the idea of having lunch at the clubs I frequent that host ATA events, it depends on the club and the food served. There a few clubs where I would not touch their food.

    Last year, the winter league at our our local club partnered with a lady who served barbaque, kilbasa and other sausages, crab cakes (my fav), soup and either bread pudding or homemade cake. It was wonderful!

    Now those sausages at the tarheelclub sure look yummy...and brings up an interesting side bar question...does your club serve leafy salads?

    i like to start off the day with a large stack of pancakes with a half a stick of butter spread between the cakes and three eggs overeasy on top of the cakes and break the yolks so they run down off the sides and pure maple syrup to top it all. along with a double order of bacon. for lunch a burger or tuna salad on toast. and supper which i eat late around 8 or 9 is just a honeymoon salad.

    Light breakfast. couple of pieces of fruit for snacks. Usually buy lunch at the club to support the kitchen.
