COOL
Little INFO The FBI has a class they give to law enforcement officers on CARNIVAL GAMES & HOW THEY ARE RIGGED. Sort of puts the breaks on wanting to TRY YOUR LUCK ... Know what I mean.......

Happy Shooting
Jack

Thanks so much Jeff, Jack and Steven for your kind words!

Jack, here in FL they have a couple people from some agency go to the fair and check out the carnival games to make sure they are winnable. Who knows if they change them afterwards though? I have played this game on occassion; its probably one of the easiest and someone wins. I have found you get an advantage if you sit down at a clown where someone was using it for awhile before you sit there. I am sure you know when you blow up a balloon for the first time, it is harder to blow up but gets easier and easier after that first time. So this works the same way. My brother won and won til they asked him to leave once when he sat down at one of the already used clowns. But telling on my dad, he took my mom to the fair once before they were married and was going to "win" her a teddy bear. He spent all his money (and never won the bear) and had to go home for more $$ for the rides. My mom loves that story!

Thank you all for your warm words! I am really surprised at the win! I only entered 3 images last month and my favorite was the Amity Island one, so you just never know! It was a nice surprise to find the judges liked this one!
