My dad came across this picture from the Williams County Ohio Gun Club back in 1989. Nester crew all shooting Remington 1100s- Scott, Kenny, Joe, Denny, Mike, Frank, Bob, and in front future shooter Clint. Note traphouse color!

Trap 3, note it was 16 yards only and the large tree just off post 5 that cast a shadow on the right angle targets.

Yep. The big tree had to come out when we added the full field.

The flag pole too.

Trap 2 was only to the 25 yard line as it was put in when that was the back fence.

I was thinking those same things looking at the pictures. Let's see, Sperry Topsider shoes, no socks, jeans made way before the invention of "relaxed fit", a yellow chamois shirt, baby blue vest that fit like a glove, 5# Jim Croce mustache, and free hat from a seed company. It you can't hit 'em, at least look good missing 'em. I showed this to my wife and said "Look how I used to dress", and she said "What do you mean, used to?"

Better view of the shade tree between traps 2 and 3 back then. Picture must be before the start of the 25, or 2 guys are shooting at once!

And the payoff the same day inside the cabin that was destroyed by fire 4 years ago. Looks like Remington RXP shells were the prize!

Found this photo in the same group. Nester crew at Vadalia Grand, 1989. Must have been a doubles event, I am shooting a field Franchi O/U, 2 triggers, open choke and full. Still going for that best dressed award......

You always had to watch out for those Nester boys. They always shot together as a squad.

One time the leader ask to see a target to start the round and the other 4 said they saw a piece.

You just never knew what was next.
