    Doug,

    Nice job on the reporting (as always). However you missed a few critical story lines.

    The first is Hook's K-80 broke. Apparently he installed some Perazzi leaf springs in it. This was the first ever documented break down for a K-80. Might be time for a Perazzi. At least when they break your up and running in 5 minutes. You don't have to put them in the car and get out your back up gun.

    Another interesting story deals with Karma. A while back my ole buddy Hook and I missed our 50th target for a nice sized jackpot in Fennville. Everybody gave us some crap and it eventually died off...except for one shooter who seemed to jab us when ever he could...Steve Vv. Well it's payback time.

    Today Steve shot with Doc and wouldn't you know Steve broke 24 straight. It came down to the last target. A 50 straight, 1st place, the glory!!! But what happens on the 25th target??? The ole choke bird comes out. LOSS. How do you miss a straight away on your last target? Oh well, the good news is I am only going to razz Steve for 2 years. That's how long he's been razzing me and Hook on our lossed 50th target. After 2 years, a truce.

    Great job to the gang at Bloomingdale. Good food, good targets, good people.

    See everyone next week for the Fennville Grand!

    Matt Ski

    Yes agree it was a great shoot Bloomingdale Gun Club and the gang of helpers out did themselves once again. Good job you all make it a welcome place to shoot.

    Have a good one

    Did Hook & Gary have bells on their toes? If so I'm really upset there's no picture....

    As well as this day went I should wear bells on my toes at every shoot.

    Doug tried to get a picture of the bells but as you could see I went tip toeing around him and that is a long way around.

    I had a good win and Steve won a vary big monkey.

    All I can say is I'll be watching for those bells this weekend. May even have a few if you forget yours and there'll surely be a pic of that!!

    Sounds like a great time was had by all, see ya at Fennville's Grand!!

    Again roving reporters, get those camera batteries loaded and please take lots of pics!
