Yeah Baby, that's right......a 50 straight was shot today at our weekly Jackpot Trapshoot. Now to some people that isn't a big deal, but, the conditions were....50 yard targets, yeah we have a 50 yard stake, 14 degree temperature, 15-20 mph NW winds, -10 degree wind chill!!!! The "straight-a-ways" were about 15 feet off of center @ 50 yards because of the wind, the rights were being driven wide and low and the lefts would skyrocket at times. Not an easy day to collect the $100.00 50 straight bonus. But 'ol Dennis Kecker bore down and soot-balled all but one of Handicap targets and he made the Singles look easy.

NICE SHOOTING DENNIS!!!!!

The scores were....

1st Class....Dennis Kecker 50......Virginia Schmidt 46

2nd Class....Jimmy Bowen 39.....Scott Steffen 37

Ties???? There weren't any ties so no flipping of the coin....and Jimmy Bowen still wins a class!!!!! With witnesses on hand too!!!

So how cold was it really???? This is Tony Winick going out to "play".

TL.That is Jimmy Bowen's Ljutic (or similar). You can see that it has some faux gold. Bowen has a patent for that (and corner on the market).

As much as it pains me to make this post.........I tried to hit (unsuccessfully) a bunch of those wind blown targets, and know what a great job Denny did to hit 50 straight!!!! Especially given he's left handed and had to look straight into that northwest wind!!

Great job Mr. Kecker!!!! Big Dan
