CLY,

Let me guess....you garantee the weather to be warmer than this mornings -16. I will see if the team will shoot with a handicap like me.
Looking forward to it and an expect good time as it has been in the past years.

Good news Glenn--bring some warm shells

Rib is healing but slow "at my age"---Thanks for asking

I have a sub shooting for me this year as ribs to sore to hold gun up for 50 shots

This is not the weather we need for the W T L at Fostoria United Sportsmen's Club

Looked at 14 day forecast & looks a lot better for our shoot

I do have the propane heaters ready to go just in case

We do cancel when Seneca County goes level 3. That is a no brainer

We are not going to let 3 foot drifts and 30 mph winds hold us up. Those guys up north don't let foul weather bother them. Matt might be reading this ,checking up on us. lol Glenn

Glenn, 3 ft drifts and 30 mph winds? You are lucky to be having such a mild winter,,,, seems every morning, which drive do I try first? Couple weeks ago took 1/2 hr to pound through 100 feet with my plow truck. THINK SPRING!!

I want to lobby for the Carey boys handicap to begin at the 27 ,due to known ability. What does everybody else think???? Sounds fair to me. Looking forward to getting started,I think this years weather will separate the men from the boys for sure.See you there. Joel Brown

Great to hear from you Jeb, I think? Don't know about this known ability thing?
All us Carey boys are just hackers looking to have fun and a COLD beverage. To quote a great guy( you know who I mean B.D.)" it always tastes better when it is free." lol Glenn

Long range forecast shows 2 degrees for first day of W T L

NO WAY until I see that

Have heaters ready for the trap machines BUT if it a north wind we could be in trouble I have been keeping records for 14 years & yes we have had weather like this before so we will be fine

Remember this is all for a good time & support for the SPTS CLUB!

Ten more days til FUS trap league starts, Long range temps say to be sure to have the thermals ready.

JEB I agree with the known ability handicapping mentioned above. Another option might be 20 gauge 5/8 oz of 9's

Looking forward to another good league.

See you all Sunday 2/9
