John,

Have a safe and successful trip. We'll be cheering for you, even if we are not there.

Good luck, John, from someone who doesn't own a trap gun made after WW2.

Just opened Mary Bowes weekly membership report stating there are 1499 active PGCA members , I am sure that both you & Mike are cognizant that all 1499 are behind your successful shooting at the Grand.

Best to you both
Allan
