    Here in central Illinois, gun averse as it is, we are rejoicing. We finally got it all together and have begun the high school trap season. Probably the last state, but we have started. One practice and one match in the books. Numbers are down due to all sports running concurrently in the spring. One high school staffer as head coach, my elder son and I as head coaches.
    we were due to start a year ago but the Rona put that off.
    Seven student athletes three of whom have some experience, four with limited or none.
    What a thrill when one of them starts seeing the light and starts busting birds. Granddaughter Sophia is improving after two years off.
    We have five schools in our conference and each school shoots at its own sponsoring club, in our case, the one where I'm a director and my boy is secretary.
    Wish us well.

    Good! Glad to see this!
    As you may know, this is becoming a popular sport, one which we all should support!

    Second night of competition, top gun 46/50, second 37, third 36, fourth 16. Before anyone laughs, 2,3,4 had never fired a shotgun three weeks ago. What fun helping them learn.

    When I shoot 39 or less on a 50 Jackpot, I tell them I was sandbagging for Lewis money. Wish that were the truth.....:( 39/50-way to go, Sophia! :)
