You think they will postpone the event until I get back from Chile? Damn I wish I could go!

Let me get this straight? you want these people who have been "FREEZING" their butts off to wait until you get back from 'WARM and MILD CHILE" so that you can go to a match in a warm and mild climate? Just asking ;D ;D

As DanO said earlier, GOOD LUCK to our fellow Canucks making the trip to Phoenix.  Sounds like there is going to be a great turnout.  And to our fellow Canucks who will be attending who have had the LUXURY of spending the winter in Phoenix.

Okay Doug, I am counting on you to beat Phil................LOL  Sorry Phil...........  Oh and I made the pickup you e-mailed about.  Can't wait to have a few pre season beers as you make your way back home.

Good Luck everyone.

Good luck and safe travels to those of you are going. I was just actually in Phoenix about 2 weeks ago. Bad timing on my part. The weather was beautiful. Have fun!

Hot by Canadian standards. Morning was about 21C and the afternoon was about 28C. Biggest turnout in years, expecting about 160 shooters. Lots of Canucks here. Friday is another practice day.


Phil N.


Doug S.


Practice day and all 65 benches being used, 2-3 to a bench.


Bob R. and Wayne M.

Why are they great pictures? just a little history here, I have been saving Benchrest Photo's for a few years now, which by the way are shown on a big screen at Super Shoot. I have, at this moment about 1800 photos and I do not have a lot Canadians.
So here is the criteria, you must have shot "SHORT RANGE BENCHREST" in your life time. Contact me and I will let you know if I have your picture, I also need a picture of your wife separately. The pictures I have are of the benchrest shooter and his wife as part of the collection. I had a picture of Wayne, and Phil, but did not have one of Doug. I have replaced the Wayne and Phil pictures and added Doug. So that is why I am interested in these pictures.
