We were at a field trial in Manitoba, guy came out to tell us. Trial went on but between every brace someone gave updates. That trial has a foundation set up to give money to be used in the community (Broomhill/Melita area) which comes out of the entry fees, two local ladies distribute it. That year they gave it to the Red Cross.
I'd just come up out of the mine i was working at. We'd shot a round and had come up while the air cleared. The hoistman had his radio on and we all gathered around it as the 2nd plane hit. I just remember how sick we felt and then how mad. It was such a horrific thing that you couldnt wrap your mind around it.
