    The pictures are great. The second and third from the last pictures are of the Galazan display, with Tony Galazan with his back to us. The display trailer is enormous.

    Nice job, Brad. As a fellow NSC member, I couldn't be more proud of our club! I have been to many FITASC worlds, and I can tell you they don't get any better than this one, and sometimes a lot worse.
    Other than the early problems with food purveyor, I heard NO complaints from any shooters, as I questioned them when shuttling them from layout to layout.
    The targets were very good and varied, as they should be, and every layout was very different from the others. Beautiful weather couldn't have been better, all in all, a great shoot!

    When I visited Tony's display at the Southern Side by Side, I spent $3000 before I was there ten minutes. It is impressive.

    Awesome.

    I can't understand why American trap lags so with sponsors and promotion. I'd love to see the Grand like this. Could be the Guerini bank, etc.

    handlepuller - Honestly, (and I'm gonna get flamed for this generalization I'm sure) but trap shooters tend to be a little on the...uh, 'frugal' side from what I have seen.

    FITASC players have more money than God and aren't afraid to drop lots of coin at these big name shoots.

    I was last squadded with a neurosurgeon, an anesthesiologist, a corporate attorney, and a guy who does inter judiciary sales of commercial real estate on three continents. I felt like a broke brother.

    That very well could be true.

    Trapshooters have money but with the World FITASC you are drawing worldwide. Even at a big 3 gun event the level of corporate sponsorship is bigger than at any trapshoot.

    We need to pursue that.

    I can't say I have ever seen a Holland and Holland at a trap range. I have seen a Fabbri on the bunker though. Interesting point about the different demographics.

    Drove up there with my buddy from Naperville and it was truly amazing. We were struck by the difficult target presentations, but then we're just trap shooters. We saw shooters from many different countries in the short time we were there. And we had some ice cream on a hot afternoon. When I see the word "International" in the title of the shoot, I'll consider going again. Nice pictures. Some nice fellow carted us around in his golf cart. Understand there were shooters there from each of the countries represented by the flags along the drive way.

    You have done a great job showing everyone what FITASC is like at a major shoot. We were going to go but work and the Cardinal shoot left no time. Every trap shooter should try FITASC. The target presentations would baffle most.

    No, Galazan's display does not look like Grill's gun room. Bill's wood is a different stain color, and his couch is brown. Geeze.

    Keep the info coming ysr racer.
