    Bring it on!
    If you haven't tried this, you owe it to yourself to come give the fly shoot a try. Mike has a first class range and puts on an excellent match. Shoot both heavy and light class and you will stay busy all day long.

    Fly Match is this coming Saturday. Time to show up and shoot some of those pesky flies. One more time we will do battle with the Aussies. They better bring their "A" game!

    Good on Ya Joe,
    We will shoot the following weekend at our national capitol, Canberra & we'll do a score comparison directly after....
    Rest assured that "A" game will be brought!!
    We rolled you guys last time but I think you got us the time before!?
    In any case it's a great bit of fun.
    We hope you have a big turn out & have a fantastic day.
    Belly

    Ah yes! Belly, I would fully expect you good Aussies to bring your "A" game. You always do. It is great fun shooting against you all and enjoying the jaw jacking. My aim is to shoot well as possible and see where the scores land. At the end of the day, it is the good times that count.
    Of course, beating up on you all is much more enjoyable than getting beat by yall.

    Justin will be preparing lunch for the shoot.
    Forecast for Saturday is good with temperatures 10 to15 degrees cooler then last shoot.

    No sir. Joe Duke shot some great relays and won it!

    Super difficult conditions with “old glazed over mushroom soup that had been sitting on the buffet line all after noon.”
    That was how we were describing the mirage for the day. That was the “soup” we were shooting in. Wind was a little sparky. But Joe was ahead of the wind flips and held there well in the tough conditions. He earned it!

    But they fed us extremely well. BBQ was awesome. Back of the line conversations were fantastic...Another great match! Mike and his team sure put on a great match! This match should have a waiting list to get in... They do a super job! Looking forward to the next one :)

    Well done Joe Duke & even without the scores you have us Australians worried.
    Our shoot is this weekend so i might just pay a little more attention in the reloading room this week.
    Cheers Ken.
