I wear mine, always. Ear and eyes, and seatbelts and motorcycle helmets, anytime any are applicable.

Found my glasses by the way. They were in the freezer. Don't ask, I don't know.

Cinder's niece (probably the cutest little squirt in the world) likes to steal her keys and hide them in strange places. Junk drawer I believe was the last place she hid them. I think she picks a different spot every time.

She reminds me of Boo from monsters Inc, except cuter if that's possible.

I have been. Knowing a little about what to expect helps. But you have several games and only the one with 8 stations has extensive video coverage. I think there are others, like Annie Oakley? Can you explain the other games basic rules?

I have been. Some British guy gives a really good rundown. On American skeet too.

I remember you listed 6 games:

The Days Events Will Be:
12 Noon - Intro/Waivers/Gun Insp.
1pm Match Begins
Box 1 = 16yd ATA Trap
Box 2 = Skeet
Box 3 = International Skeet
Box 4 = Doc Adams
Box 5 = Poor Mans 5 Stand
Box 6 = Annie Oakley
Box 7-10 = Shooters Choice Under Lights

I found ClayCoachOnline (a Brit) who teaches Skeet in pretty good detail. I think he also has some Trap discussion. You described Annie Oakley on your website, but I'm not sure I understood all of it. Doc Adams is a mystery to me, as is Poor Mans 5 Stand.

I'll look for some YouTube on ATA Trap specifically.

For Annie Oakley, I think I understand the following:
Shooter 1 hits, and he is safe for that round.
Shooter 1 misses, and Shooter 2 is required to shoot same target.
If Shooter 2 hits, Shooter 1 takes a miss.
But if Shooter 2 misses also, who takes the miss? Both?

Can you explain the last two?

I'm here, Bobski. I agree with you on those PM's. Just leave it all behind and appreciate what's happening here on FTF.

When I searched I found ATA Double Trap. Is the ATA Trap game we will shoot going to be doubles?

The adviser that I found for Double Trap was saying I should NOT look at the whole target, I should focus on a particular quarter of the target in flight. Are you freakin kidding me? At 20-30 yards those targets look like aspirin to me. I may be lucky to see them at all!!!

EDIT: OK, whining complete. If we are shooting doubles I'll give it a try. Sure hope there's some background to help me see the targets!
