    Hey Marlin Members,

    We (the Lead Heads) had a great Memorial Day. One of us (our Chief Enabler) had recently moved to Ohio.

    For Memorial Day, he (and his wonderful Bride) had a great cook-out! :D(sorry, no pics) This was on Saturday.

    Sunday, we went to the Ashland Lake Club (west of Akron) for their BOWLING PIN SHOOT!

    Real Pins! Real Guns! "Power Factor" ........... either the Pins go "off" the table, or you need "MORE"!:D

    Ashland had two "set ups". (both based on "5 Pin" and Steel Tables)

    For .22/.38/9mm, the Pins were set up at the "rear" edge of the tables.

    For .45 (or "Major") three pins on the bottom, and two on the top shelf, three feet in front of the "rear edge".

    Price was CHEAP! Three tables/three bucks.

    Scoring was simple. Only the two "quick" times "count"!:D

    Pin shooting is a blast. Used to do it with .38 Super and .45 acp. in major. Also have you tired cutting off the "Pin Tops" to 3-5" and shooting with a .22, lots of fun also. We shot Head-to-Head with the winner advancing. Loser goes to losers bracket. Top in losers bracket goes against winner of first bracket in best 2 out of three.

    Hey SWO,

    "Pin Tops" are a Blast!

    We used to host Pin Shoots (at Rosedale) Monthly.

    South Connellsville and Monroeville also had Monthly Matches.

    8 Pin, 10 Pin, 21 Pin, Pin Tops......

    Sadly, no more Pin Matches, here local.

    Looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing, especially the videos. Hopefully, I'll get to try it some day.
