A huge thank you to Bobski and his wife Sarah for welcoming us to their place and to Robert S. as well for all the hard work he did! And I want to say thank you to Balota and Winds for bringing a ton of great food! It was really excellent! I enjoyed seeing familiar faces and new ones too. We all had a great time. I am looking forward to October...

I am looking forward to October, too. By then I'll have my own 20 gauge. Do you see this, Bobski? I'm going to get a shotgun and I am going to double my score by having a 20 gauge instead of shooting a .410 though I loved that lever action shotgun.

As for the food, you are welcome but this time more people pitched in and brought food. It was wonderful.

Astroman, I'm so glad you show up to these. I enjoy talking to you. See you in October!!!!

By the way, I have some pictures to post when I get a few minutes to sit at my PC rather than the laptop to post them. As far as I know, I'm the only one who doesn't want her picture posted.

i want to thank gso for doing something that really was generous. gso was one of the fellows that lost his cards and prior to the meet he called for advice. i told him not to worry about it. when he got the meet, i just asked him to keep a tally and on the honor system we'd sqaure up later. well, he had to leave and so did his buddies, so it never happened.
i got an email where he told me to just void all his tickets as spent and that he'd start fresh all over in oct.

THANK YOU GSO. thats the attitude of a true winner.
---------------


now, if everyone else would pm me and let me know where we stand with your old cards. i know we punched some, but im being honest...i lost track.

so one by one, let me know what you got left....

china clone 870 pump. poor patterning from choked slug gun.(possible crooked choke tube installation.)
