Lost in all the hoopla surrounding this year's Grand American is the breaking news of Bill and Lee Ann Martin once again giving to our loved sport a beyond generous amount of $300,000 Added Money to next year's Grand American!! I am almost left speechless by this incredible gift to their fellow trapshooters! Thank you does not seem adequate enough to truly express how I feel for their overwhelming support of a sport that I and my family have not only loved, but have lived. God Bless you Martin's!! I hope we as shooters can give to this sport our best efforts and make you as proud to know us as we are to know you.

Jay and Janessa Beaman

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Martin, for caring about this sport enough to support it in your very special way. You set a fine example for everyone in the trapshooing community.

Have you ever heard the song "American Anthem" sung by Nora Jones. Its mainly about war veterns...but to me its also about people like the Martins, those who contribute to our way of life.

"All that we've been given by those who came before

The dream of a nation where freedom would endure

The work and prayers of centuries have brought to this day

What shall our legacy be, what will my children say

Let them say of me, I was one who believed

In sharing the blessings I've received

Let me know in my heart when my days are through

America, America I gave my best to you"

Only a clod wouldn't be moved by that, to music it is very moving.
