Default Grand American

The Grand American begins in about a week. Mike Franzen and I will be arriving on August 9 for the second week. We'll be on the grounds Tuesday, August 10, through Saturday, August 14. If anyone else is going to be there, give us a shout and maybe we can hook up for lunch.

John - You're just too danged modest....

John will be competing for "Champion of Champions" in the State Champion Competition where each state champion from around the country vies for the coveted title. John is the 2021 Georgia State Champion.

As I understand it, John will be shooting his beautiful and trusty SB single barrel Parker Bros. trap gun.

Go Get 'Em John!!

How about a picture or two of that gun John?

John & Mike,

I want to wish you the best of luck, someday I would like to go out there.

Will you guys be participating in the vintage gun competition?

Thanks,
Stan Hoover

Stan, thanks. We will not be shooting in the Vintage gun event, as we won't be arriving in time to sign up for it. But then, for us every event is Vintage gun.

Good luck John and Mike. Remember, one bird at a time. If you can do it in GA you can do it there.
