Yes Dave, Kathy and Cam are coming with me. She's really looking forward to it and to going to Hausmann's too.

Regarding lead shot at Addieville - the new no tox rule must be in regard to the stocked birds ingesting shot along with grit for their crops. I guess that could result in high lead levels in these birds' flesh.

However, scientific studies have concluded that lead from lead shot does not adversely affect the environment or ground water as has always been thought. Lead, washed from shot, even from acid rain, is extremely minimal and stays very close to the surface of the ground.
We had all of these tests done on our trap and Skeet fields which have been in use for three decades and more.

I should have posted a message earlier, but I am looking forward to this on Saturday. It will be good to see and meet PGCA members and of course do some shooting with a Parker or two.

See you Saturday morning!

Jay

Now that my core body temperature has reached 52 degrees Fahrenheit, I just want to say that today's gathering at Addieville was by far thee most enjoyable time this Fox guy ever spent with Team Parker!! (Oddly enough I tend to think the feeling was mutual??) The show and tell session was in a word, EPIC and that fresh caught, Block Island Ahi and NH crow tenderloin was simply over the top! Can't wait to see you guys next year!! OP really knows how to pick 'em!!

Warmest Regards,

Ansley H.

Pretty cold and damp but a great day none the less. We had about 25 shooters show up to enjoy the company and fellowship of like minded Parker lovers. Thank you all for coming!

Dave,
Thanks again for putting it together. It was really great to shoot with Dean's grandson Cam and I predict by next year he will be showing up some of us old guys.

What's the point of Tool posting his High School picture, I don't get it?

Thanks Dave for doing this. It was great to shoot with Edgar and Allan McLane. Very impressed to see the Tool and Mr. Plunkett. I heard that Stub Twist was there but I had to leave at noon to get the last stuff out of my Cape house before they tear it down.
Next year it will be 80 degrees.

George, it's always fun to shoot with you, and you were in predictably good spirits, in spite of probably freezing you a$$ off, dressed in shorts. It was 43and a cold rain, but we all had fun. With any luck, I'll be walking again by next years shoot.
Dean, I hesitate to rat on the grandson, But he was eyeing a DHE pretty hard in the candy store.

I had a great time as well and thanks Dave for organizing this shoot. I got to put some mores faces with names from the PGCA forum which was nice. I gained some more Parker knowledge talking to everyone, which was good for this relatively new collector. Such a great group of people and a lot of fun despite the cold and rain! Already looking forward to next year...

As long as it was a sub-gauge I'm okay with it... but he better get a paper route or hit his parents up for a raise in his allowance if he's going to satisfy those 'champagne' tastes.
