    This is the year I will finally win a handicap event at the GRAND. I have been waiting for it to become worthwhile and WOW this is worthwhile. I am certainly not a “Big Dog” but I will be shooting from the 27 so no one can claim I have been sandbagging. I hope the TV cameras are running as I accept the $100,000 prize from Bill & Le Ann.

    I want to thank the Martins in advance for helping me with my retirement. And so what if the tax man is there, I am more than happy to take the $60,000 net prize money.

    Again, THANK YOU BILL & LEANN

    Damn, I picked up a yard and a half to get off the 20 in Kentucky last year. Guess I should have waited one more year!

    Well, I am from KY and I will be entered in. I'm not on the 20 though.

    There are one eyed shooters, 2 eyed shooters, and this year I bet there will be some no eyed shooters till the first of August.

    What's the old saying - "get as close as you can, until you get to the Grand".

    320090T,

    Yes, I could, but that isn't how I roll. I'm on the 25.5 now, and I hope I am on the 27 before the Grand.

    As Yogi Berra would say "there are 5 guys that have a 50% or better chance of winning".

    Kay, Leo, Ricky, Dave Kelly, and Harlan. (theres others too, but where do you stop?)
