Despite threatening rain storms and a brisk wind, it was a pretty good start to the Grand. Shot the preliminary handicap and doubles events. The SAA put up a 94x100 in handicap and the DHE went 95x100 in doubles. Next up, the SA tackles the 200 bird Singles Championship event tomorrow.

Another decent day at the Grand. The SA managed to bag a pair of 99s in the Singles Championship for a final score of 198x200. Unfortunately that wont even garner an honorable mention. But it was fun.

There was one lone side x side in the Doubles Championship today. It was a Parker DHE, 30 inch barrels, BTF, Straight grip stock, double triggers, choked IM/Full. It turned in a pair of 48s for a total score of 96x100. Grand American Handicap tomorrow.

It’s really nice to hear about your shooting at the Grand American with vintage Parker’s! I appreciate you sharing your Grand experience. I attended for the Grand for 25 years in Vandalia and it was a wonderful place!
