    There's a two day shoot comming up this weekend in Winnemucca, it's a great club the people are more than hospitible and the forecast is sunny and 91. How can you ask for any better. I hope to see some of you there.

    Don't forget to stay Saturday night and get a four star Basque meal at one of the great resturants!

    I've got cousins living in Winnemucca and we've decided to have a family reunion at the same time so I'm getting double pleasure. People comming from as far as San Fracisco and Visalia neat days comming up.

    Single male shooters should also consider: Winnemucca is in rural Nevada!

    Besides a trapshoot, endurance trials abound in the Old West of Nevada.

    I drove my new 1978 VW Rabbit diesel from Ohio to Calif. Wanted a diff route going home. So I went up through Winnemucca. Talk about wild west,Wow! Diesel fuel was $.49 cents per gallon. Cost me $25.00 out from OH. & $30.00 back. Motel was $12.00 or $15.00.
    Sorry, that was Elko, not Winnemucca.

    The unemployment rate in Winnemucca and surounding area like Elko and Lovelock is nearly 0 no recession there.

    Also, looks like the employment rate is high in Wendover (mines have opened up again) and ditto for Gabbs, Nevada. Even the "lonliest road in the U.S.", (hwy. 50) was not so lonely two weeks ago! However, did see some Mustangs in the hills watching over the landscape.
