Princeton sharpshooter to compete
What a fabulous couple of weeks of weather we have had. Not the usual 95 degrees and 90 percent humidity we usually experience this time of year. It has been nice and comfortable for two weeks. Nice and cool at night also. Good sleeping weather.
This is the week that the town of Sparta, Ill., will see its population more than double. This is the week that shotgun enthusiasts from all over the world will meet to test their skills in the art of trapshooting. Probably the percentage would be something like 80 percent United States and the rest from foreign countries.
It is the week of the Grand American National Trapshooting competition. It features 11 days of different events of 100 or 200 birds that test the shooters’ skills. Princeton is represented by Wayne Hassler who has been shooting trap for many years. Hassler has entered in this competition for several years now, and he loves the competition. I went to watch him two years ago, and he shot a 98 and 99 in two events. I asked him if that would stand up. He told me no; there were four or five in his flight that shot 100s. I was amazed at the number of sharpshooters in the competition. I just hope this week will be his best ever.
