    The idea of Bill and LeAnn Martin actually putting up a $100,000 as the Grand prize is one thing, it will be fun to predict who you think might be lucky enough or have what it takes to actually enter and win such a generous prize and why ... This is free, but you only get one pick ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Can't do just one. I think it will depend on what kind of day either Harlan or Leo has on that particular day. Seems both are machines at crushing targets. This could no doubt bring out all the big dogs, so it could be a long, long day if they all go straight.

    I can't come up with a name, however I predict this prize will be won by a less popular shooter ( I say less popular, but certainly not less gifted or capable) I think it will be someone other than Harlan or Leo. When it get's a little closer I will go to the basement and look in to my crystal ball and tell you for sure.

    Ok, I will bet. I will bet $100.00 that a 27 yard shooter wins it. I will give whoever bets against me all the rest of the yardage groups. To take me up on my bet you must post your name and ATA number on this thread.

    Leo, Harlan, Dave Kelly, or any one of the top 20....or

    Some new 20 yarder will sandbag all year and practice. He'll then run 100 straight on one of the handicaps, and drop targets on the other handicaps so he doesn't get more yardage before the shootoff.

    For $100,000 people will get creative. They may have announced it too early?

    Leo, just because he probably has shot more shootoff targets than anyone else.

    OK Bill..... I am going to go with a shooter that I honestly think has a great chance to win that purse. 27 yarder, Californian, David Kelly. Dave has been on fire for some time now, and, if he stays on course, I think he has a great shot at it. For those that don't know Dave, he was the HAA at the PITA Grand Pacific last year. Great shooter, and an even greater guy to be around..... Just my opinion.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    How right you are! There are plenty of wheels turning on how to win the prize legally and illegally.

    The deal is...you can only break 100 targets, not 101 and that leads way to the best shooters in the country to at least tie for any of the nine wins. Then the shootoffs start for each event which in itself could go many rounds just determine a winner of that event.

    This repeats itself nine times, Then those nine shoot it off for the eventual winner. It would surprise me to see anyone other than a 27 yarder in last standing nine.

    Last year 7 of the nine handicaps were won with score of 100. Other 2 with 99. Go to RJ Stuart and look at earned yardage for last year. Average Joe going to have his hands full winning an event with 99 or 100 then winning shootoff for that event and then winning big shootoff. Tough call on picking winner. Harrison, Campbell, Hawley, Stafford, hard to say.

    D Verna and Tron will hire hookers to distract the Brinks Guards. During the shoot off, they will crawl under the Brinks truck and burn a hole through the floor with Tron's Adjustable comb etching tool. They'll grab the cash and drive home to Michigan and make a $98,000 donation to the MTA just prior to the Fall Team Shoot. Their pictures will be placed in the MTA Hall of Fame.

    $1,000 a piece goes to the Hookers.
