    Rich, I think one of the balls I shot was about where your are. Don’t anyone ask about the other four.

    A few years ago I ended a shoot at the bottom of the totem pole, too. Just glad to have this first chance at trying BP shooting. Thanks for running these, Adui, and congrats to the winners.:thumb:

    I was a looser. Couldn't have time to shoot. Any one that gets on range wins by practice time acquire. Dbl diget number of shooters, outstanding. Congrats to all that were able to get lead in the air. I was in GA for a while visiting my daughter. First I'd set eyes on her since early last spring. Had a great visit, We talked her into coming up for a week before Christmas. I wasn't able to shoot it afore I went and never came home 'til 12-1. Got to get to the range this week. I'll be waiting 'til day after Christmas (here in PA) to start my deer hunting season. Next time. Good job Adui!

    Thank you Adui. Much appreciated. Remember the ancient mountain man proverb...

    "A man that is too busy to make smoke, is just too busy."

    Hope to see you post a score this month.

    Merry Christmas to you all.

    Dang Silky! I am sorry. I never got your target. I'll check with the neighbor the next road over to see. I might just have to start checking regularly with them. Postal carrier doesnt seem to be able to tell the difference between St and Pl. BUT! I'll try and put a positive spin and be thankful its going to S. 90th instead of N 90th

    Thanks Kestrel, I usually don't compete in these since I'm the adjudicator. If I decide to shoot my score gets an honorable mention for shooting. I know you guys trust me and all, I just think it best for me to be the judge, and not have any reason to be biased. I DO shoot though, just haven't been able to in a bit. Partly because I have been busy with family, and partly because I have another hobby interest taking my time.

    I absolutely understand about the "other hobbies" getting in the way. I'm going to have to retire just so I can properly service my hobbies....

    Retirement doesn't help. I retired almost 9 years ago and still can't find time to properly service my hobbies. Don't know where the time goes.:horseback: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. :thumb:

    A fireman friend of mine retired and I hadn't seen him for several months. One day, I saw him and asked him how things were going? He said, "When I wake up in the morning, I have no idea what I'm going to do all day. By the end of the day, I am so far behind I don't think I will ever catch up."
