  • Reminder!!! Daylight Savings Time-- Early This Year!

    At 2 a.m. on March 11, groggy Americans will turn their clocks forward one hour, marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST).

    The federal law that established "daylight time" in this country does not require any area to observe daylight saving time. But if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006 this has been the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it will be observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time. (See: New Federal Law.)

    No More Sunlight in Arizona and Hawaii
    Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Nation) and Hawaii and the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa are the only places in the U.S. that do not observe DST but instead stay on "standard time" all year long. And if you've spent any time in the sweltering summer sun in those regions you can understand why residents don't need another hour of sunlight.

    U.S. Daylight Saving Time Schedule
    2004: April 4 - October 31
    2005: April 3 - October 30
    2006: April 2 - October 29
    New Federal Law In Effect
    2007: March 11 - Nov. 4
    2008: March 9 - Nov. 2
    2009: March 8 - Nov. 1

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      How do you expect me to have a RED WHITE and BLUE sig when the background is obnoxious white?

        Either 1 hour less to party or 1 hour less to study.

                  I played at Forest Ridge on Sunday - I went to the range first and coudlnt get the ball off the ground - thought about not going but went and did ok - didnt keep score it was more of a learning session - but i made some pretty good shots if i do say so myself - i just have to figure out consistency
