    The Ohio State shoot has been around for 124 years.

    Pennsylvania State Shoot for 119 Years.

    Grand American has been around for 111 Years.

    Like Fine wine and Whiskey the older the better.


    Oh-Pa are growing Grand is declining 15% per year.

    Grand will be lucky to have 2,000 shooters this year.

    Gary, I am quite sure that this year is the 149th New York State Shoot. I will be there for my 39th trip. Hope I can make a "50 straight". Larry Evans

    BIGDON'S, got Dr. Longshort's number. That was too good. Vinegar would be sweet in comparison to some of the venum he spews. Am I the only one sick of it? Shoot often and enjoy it while we can, Bob

    Dr, Longspew,


    If you were to check the facts regarding the PA State shoot, you'd discover that numbers were down paralleling the trend country-wide. In fact, the singles championship was the lowest it has been in 20 years.

    Dr. Longshot is starting his own web discussion forum: BOOBS.com. No, it's not about jugs, so let's not all get excited, it actually stands for: BOOST OHIO OR BASH SPARTA.

    There will be lots and lots of posts from the same few posters, and it will always be the s.old s. that we've endured here since the Dayton airport let it be known that it was time to leave, and a few of the Ohio faithful couldn't be bothered to get off their lazy butts and DO something to keep the Grand in their backyard.

    BigM, maybe what you say is true, but it is also the best shoot in the county. The top shooters are there, the top hotels and eating places are close by. It is as close to Vandalia as you will find again in this world. I think maybe that is the reason the Ohio State shoot is growing every year and others are are not.

    Bullfrog, you can say almost the same for Mason, Michigan, but you don't come up there either....

    Maybe OH is up because it moved away from Vandalia and closer to PA.

    Here are the actual numbers from Bob Stuart for Ohio's largest event, the 2009 Singles Championship. I have only listed the numbers from the 10 states that had the most shooters attending so that I could keep this short, but we greatly appreciate ALL those that attended. Bob's total may be different from the official total due to disqualifications such as not paying before shooting or those that started the event but were unable to complete it. Here goes.


    Total Shooters 1209

    Ohio 655

    Pennsylvania 106

    Kentucky 95

    Michigan 66

    Indiana 65

    New York 35

    Ontario 31

    Florida 24

    Illinois 18

    West Virginia 17

    It does appear that location plays an important part in the total number of shooters. Adding just the number of shooters from OH, PA and KY in this one event would yeild the third largest State Singles Championship in the country. As I said before, we appreciate ALL the shooters that attended no matter where they are from.


    Thanks,
    Don Cogan

    Don thanks, from Trap and Field Feb 10, Ohio 2,922 total shooters the largest State shoot in the the country. Comp points of 7. The Buckeye Classic and the Cardinal Classic are the largest of Major Tournaments. It seems like Ohio has a lot of shooters but there are a lot of folk finding their way home. BigM, My wife and I have shoot Mason and it is very nice but we stay at home more now.
