One day down....one to go....then we can all start attending those "practice" shoots for next year's Jackpot season.

Not a bad day today, compared with what we've put up with the last few months, but there was enough wind and cool temps to make it interesting. For some. For ONE, all he did was hold onto the gun a little tighter, concentrate, and make a smooth move to the target.....and break a 49!!! And then, just to show the rest of us it wasn't a fluke, he went and did it again. With the money on the line, Dennis Kecker was on fire today. Some came close, within a bird or two, but Dennis was at the top of his game today. Nice shooting Dennis. Click for today's winners.....


Whew, we make it through another MGC Jackpot season. The weather we had will be remembered for years and today was no different. Rain, lots of rain, and 25-30 mph winds. Who wudda thunk that shooters would show up.....and shoot!!! It wasn't a huge crowd by any means and hats off to those that did. Winners today were.....

1st Class....Dean Campbell 44
2nd Class....Bob Smith 39
The results of the Jackpot Finale and the $1000.00 added money......
