    Spent the weekend there.. LOVED IT.. nicest large group of people I have ever been around... I didnt even mind the $3 COLD beers.. what I didnt like was.. I didnt know a danged person there.. lol.. I'm sure I walked right past some of you but I didnt know who you were.. would have liked to stop and spoke with you.. It always good to put a face with a name.. over all I really enjoyed everything.. I still cant get over the free shells to try out the new guns with.. have never seen that before.. all the other places I have been you had to pay out the a$$ for the shells to try out the guns... I didnt shoot any but one of the kids in our group did.. no complaints here.. I'll be back next year..

    I didn't like the mean rain. And the tough "big dogs" made me feel inadequate and quite....emasculated?


    You guys wanna hurry up and give me a call, you promised.

    I was there from Wednesday thru Sunday. What I didn't like was the long lines at 'The Butchers Block'. Although it was well worth the wait.

    What I don't like is I must wait one whole year before I get to do it again. I LOVE THE GRAND.

    Was down there Thursday. All the banks were running. Whatta sight. The vendor's stores were crowded even though everyone is broke. There were enough cars that they were parking on the grass at the east end. Headed back this Thursday.

    I went. It was so hot I didn't shoot. Nice facility though.
    Why not hold it in late September? It seems it's always
    95+ degrees.

    There is no need to stay 75 miles away from the WSRC. There are plenty of hotel rooms within 35-40 miles at the most.

    I was there Monday. I love going. I didn't shoot but its A great place to do your shopping. I did trade guns and came home A lot lighter than when I went. LOL. Only thing that bothered me was my glasses fogged up every time I came out of A vendors building so half the time I couldn't see.
    Only spent A few hours there but would have loved to have met some of you.
