Jeff, that 50/50 may well be all we need. Looking forward to seeing you make the team.

Sometimes life gets busy, but I'm optimistic. However, it would be unfortunate if "Team Fox" had to rely on me to compete against our comrades from the Parker clan. I'm usually 50 / 50 when it comes to breaking birds at the 5 stand.
:D



Doesn't matter if you are 50/50, 60/40, 70/30......Just showing up and shooting for the organization is enough. You are showing support and never know, just might have that 1 magical round of clays?

BTW, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the Michigander!! :lol:

Right now we are a liitle less than 2 weeks away from the FPC and I'm still uncertain how many of you here at the Fox nation are planning to attend and most importantly planning on shooting a Fox to qualify for the Challenge. If I was Dr. Cambria I'd post that iconic "I want you" poster of Uncle Sam. Here's hoping that there are few responses due to the fact that those who plan on attending don't do the internet thingy. The gauntlet has been thrown on the Parker site by a national celebrity and we must respond with equal force. veni, vidi, vici (or something like that).

In lieu of anyone stepping up to check on scorers, I asked Tom Snyder (Vintage Gunners President) today when I saw him at an invitational shoot, and he told me "no scorers" on the 50 bird courses. Also that the squads will be kept right at 4 persons to facilitate movement and without backup.

I don't like not having scorers but oh well, we'll have to deal with it. The last two years here in Maryland at Hopkins they had scorers at each station. They probably could'nt find enough people up in the boonies at Ernie's.

So I had Matilda my 1910 CE 12 bore out shooting sporting today, a warm up for the Fox-Parker qualification at the VGC. The other seven guns in our gang were modern over/unders and gas guns. Kind of lonely for her but she did just fine. :D
