that would keep a couple of Labradors busy all afternoon fetching the balls back

If you notice the balls look dirty, I do believe its more mud than soot. It was a wet, muddy, but extremely fun weekend. Thanks for running your engines Jeff.

I stayed pretty busy with my few maytag washing machines this year so didn't get around much once I got set up but did see a few kids having a good time chasing your tennis balls. Next year telescopic sights on the stak and you can keep the pigeons off the barn roof. See ya next year!!
