    Hot, humid, shifting winds, and "old school targets" kept the games challenging!

    Nice to see shooters raising money for a good cause.
    Please post the final amount donated after everything is tallied.

    The Shriners charities have one of the highest ratings for the percent of money actually going for it's intended purpose, somewhere around 93%. In my opinion it is one of the best organizations to donate to get the best bang for your buck.

    Lets see all the shooters scores and the amount raised for this good cause.

    I am not so sure how important any of the scores are at a charity like that--- although I heard LS gave a darn good showing on the miss and out program. Waiting for pictures if there are more.

    Some of the shooters shot their first shells on a trap line at the shoot. Many others were not registered shooting types.

    Appy, I shoot a lot of non-registered also so that doesn't matter but it would be interesting to see the scores.

    As far as the shooters who shot their first shells on the trapline I hope they were "bitten" by the shooting bug.

    That doesn't look like food. It looks like the pictures of those who are scared of harder targets.

    Being a Shriner and fairly new to shotgun sports I can say I had a great time at this shoot and met lots of great people.

    Thanks for the kind words Gary. Sharon just loves going toe to toe with the guys on the "outlaw shoots" / games. She is a bit sketchy on the singles but gets real tough when she gets back past the 27 yard line. I guess somebody forgot to tell her that her gun runs out of pattern past the 27, haha! I look forward to the day that DLS gets his new foot and can once again shoot standing up. Doc was the last shooter in the group to miss during the miss and out which is pretty darn good for a guy still learning to shoot from a chair! Doc didn't miss until they put the trap in "crazy" mode to speed up the shoot. It was sure fun to take the line with my old friend Brad. Brad rolled out there with a model 12 he had never shot and broke the first 25 singles (the only one on our squad to run 'em). We beat him up a bit on the handicaps cuz the model 12 was a bit flat shooting for Brad's style, but he was a good sport about it. Thanks to all the hard working folks that put this shoot together and made it a big success for a great charity!

    Don

    The best thing about the whole thing was everyone had a good time and had some fun ... I am a Shriner and tried to get a bunch from the Shrine to shoot a few times, could not muster much interest ... I did shoot with a few Mason's who would keep you honest on some of those game shots ... Best fun I ever had was at a Turkey/Ham shoot and a little girl had to shoot against me in a shootoff ... I won't tell you who won but you never seen such a smile on a kids face in all your life after she got her Ham , then I gave her a turkey also because she couldn't make up her mind at first which she wanted ... You had to be there ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I would have expected the guy with the Model 12 to put his hat on backwards.

    What a great Good Ole Boy & Girl Shoot. Wish I could have been there with my Grand fathers Win 1897. I hope this happens again so that I can shoot against Brad & Dr. Longshot on the Miss & Out.

    Personally, I am a little (more than a little) disappointed in Doc Long Shot and him not making a good impression on the shooting youth of today ... Its plain to see he is not wearing eye and hearing protection, can't tell if he has the parking brake applied but I would guess not ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Interesting that you mention the brake. I pushed doc into the shooting circle the first time. Now that you mention it I am sure he had that darn brake on.

    I could not navigate my wheelchair in the gravel to get back to my SUV to get my Randolph CMTs, and my Electronic Muffs.

    But all you kids wear eye and ear protection when shooting.

    Wouldn't it be great if we were a required to play by the same rules.
    It is unfortunate that a gun club would allow anyone to participate without proper ear and eye protection.

    I agree that everyone should wear eye and ear protection, but that is an ATA rule and at a non ATA sanctioned shoot it is entirely up to the individual or club about wearing eye or ear protection. Also many of the games that are shot at this type of shoot are very different than the events at an ATA sponsered event.

    Would someone please post the line or lines from the official ATA rule book that mandates a shooter must wear eye and ear protection.

    I was zinging Dr LS, knew he had to have a legit reason, now I am sorry I pointed this out ... I think its more of a club rule than Official rule santioned and enforced by the ATA ... I am very protective of my friends ... (lol) ... WPT ... (YAC) ... " NEVERMIND "

    Not being required by the club to wear eye and hearing protection is a good basis for a lawsuit. After all this is America where most people don't believe in personal responsibility.

    Any of you ever try to hear a Barnabee trap open when you are wearing ear plugs or muffs?

    Flyers it is in the rule book under Safety if you care to look it up.

    This is not an ATA issue.
    This was clearly non registered shoot.

    I travel a bit and every club I attend requires Ear and Eye protection for Practice or games or any shooting. Failure to comply typically means loss of shooting privileges.

    I am surprised that any club in this day and age wouldn't require Ear and Eye protection for all participants and trap help. I must admit I have not been to the club in question.

    It surprises me how unfamiliar some posters are with the basic rules.

    Enjoy the rest of your day.

    I put my earplugs on as soon as I get around doc. I think that is why he had the brake on when I was pushing.

    How about trying to hear the pullers response after you ask, "ARE YA READY?"

    Or when you are trying to hear your partner in a 1-5-9 race that cost $200.00 per team.

    Or in a $50.00 miss and out that has moved so far back the puller is WAY off to the side of you and the empty shell box the first shooter used as marker once you all moved WAY past the 35 yard stake.

    Yeah I didn't think so.

    Well in the pictures the shooters are just behind the 27 yard line and everyone is using a voice pull.

    I'm not from Ohio and the shoots were down the road from Hegins. That's not in Ohio either.

    The rest of the shooters in those miss and outs, the ones still in, and the spectators that are betting money on the outcome of every bird are standing right next to you. Most of the time talking out loud to see if you have "rabbit ears".

    One of the best Flyer shooters I ever had the good fortune to shoot against and talk to NEVER wore glasses or earplugs.

    NONE of the clubs that held those shoots for ALL those years EVER told one shooter that they had to wear earplugs and glasses.

    Most pigeon shooters are a little hard of hearing.

    I recently pointed out, to management, during a shoot where the help, which were youngsters were not heeding to this rule (both hearing and eye protection) when reloading the traps. Management seemed interested in my statements but nothing was done and activity persisted. How does one disqualify trap personnel when the one who are able to remove or change the behavior do not honor the rules in which they are supposed to? I probably should have been more insistent and showed this rule.

    How does one convince the trusty shoot officials collecting the score sheet at the scorer stand need to have hearing protection in place while on the field.

    Now, in USAS competition it is only recommended, or urged.

    upload_2015-7-27_16-43-57.png

    Shoot well.

    That's the way he looked when the last time I saw him, but it was in Maryland. Now that I'm in Ohio, maybe I can meet him again.

    I forgot got to mention to the newbie shooters that the fat bulge in my hip pocket is handicap money, when the grand was grand that's what we shot for, notice no pink ribbons or fancy vest either. Just that fat wallet, ah the good old days.

    The only place I am ever shooting trap at in one of my dreams is Vandalia. I thinks that's odd, never any other club, and when I dream about pigeons it's always Holfords, yea all you Sparta lovers that's in Illinois, Canton. The best live bird shoots I ever attended. I hated to see that place close as much as I did Vandalia. Brad

    Sure you got the money, and NOW, that there isn't any money in the game, I see the secret.

    FOOTWARE!

    It was right there in front of me all along. I should have seen it back in '78. Don't know how I missed it.

    If I would have paid attention back then I would have run down to the bowling alley in Dayton and stole a pair of those shoes for myself.

    I know I've been out of the shooting circuit for 30+ years, and it was sad to find out about Vandalia. But now I find out that Holfords is gone also. Tuff place to shoot with those trees so close to the ring. Made those birds really fly wild. But that's what ya want. Went there only one time. Great people. Did spend some time traveling with Herb Gebbler who was a good friend of mine to some of the Pa rings. My most memorable shoot was a shoot off with the World Champion Charlie Miller. Ya, I never wore ear plugs either, neeed to hear those traps open and dump a round ASAP over the trap.

    Herb was the next shooter the year I killed the 25 at Valley View. Even though he was next up, when I turned around he was the first one to come out of the crowd and shake my hand. The really good guys always pass too early.

    Dan,
    I tried to get a shirt every year they had them at Hegins. This is the one I like to wear to my club when the boys that only shoot clays targets are there.

    I feel that anyone who would subject themself to being any part of a "challenge" or "throw down" deserves a lot of credit for taking part in same ... It shows that people have a sense of humor and can laugh at themself as they go through the motions ... Good going to all who participated ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I followed Homer Clark at the April of 91 shoot at Holfords. Homer killed 25 that day. Don, had to override one of his refs on one of Homers kills. I always enjoyed watching how fast Homer and Richard Smith could kill a pigeon.

    Brad,tell the story about the time you sold a mx8 to Bumstad at Holfords.

    Joe thanks for reminding me about this fun shoot. This is a good example of what a web site can get going. Rodger Edgington was the driving force behind it and I was just a "tool" in more ways than one. It's a long drive from my house to Knox but for the money we raised for the kids it was worth it.

    I bought a pheasant mount off of the silent raffle and see it everyday at my club to remind me of how much fun that event was. I'm surprised that more clubs don't do those fun things, maybe it's to much work. Rodger was also my cohort with the Grudge Match.

    I was glad to talk to him at the State Shoot and see that he was doing well and back among the living. Brad

    Brad....one of the most memorable days in my trapshooting life and I only had a camera. Watching Longshot smoke all but one of the best in NE OH in the Annie was priceless. And it was his first shoot in a wheelchair. Thousands raised for Children's Hospital.

    Thanks for driving across the state to be tournament director at a small club Knox Township. 550 miles round trip. All for Children's Hospital. joe
