The prize list for the Illinois State Championship Still Target Shoot is growing pretty quickly. There are some really nice prizes to be won.

For those of you who've never been to one of these events, we'll shoot 5 squads of each class and the winners of those squads will then become the "Final 5" who will shoot for the championship of each class.

A shooter must win 2 times in the finals to win the class and then the remaining shooters shoot 1 time for 2nd place. Both the winner and the 2nd place qualify for the World Championship shoot.

This event is open to all. We have a 20 gauge class strictly for ladies, a 20 gauge class strictly for JAKES (17 and under), a 20 gauge open class and a 12 gauge open class, in which both men, women and youth can participate.

It will cost $25.00 to participate in all 5 squads of any class and we don't charge for the championship squads. You can also choose to shoot in fewer than 5 squads, for $5.00 for each squad you shoot. Prize values for each squad will exceed the entry fee.

This event is centrally located just off I-57 in Southern Illinois. It's your chance to participate in and see one of these events.

I hope you'll consider attending.

Thanks,
Clark

I've had a few requests for location information for the Rend Lake Shooting Complex, so here you go:

17738 Conservation Lane Whittington, Il 62897

This may also help: "Take I-57 to Exit 77 ,then east to RT 37. Head North 3-3.5 miles, then west 1 mile to the complex."

Thanks,
Clark

Last night we were able to visit with Larry, the manager of the Rend Lake Shooting Complex at a Wheelin' Sportsmen and Appreciate banquet at the Convention Center there.

There had been a PVA/Wheelin' Sportsmen trap shoot at the facility all day Saturday and there were about 250+ folks at the banquet, including a lot of very happy, if tired, shooters.

Frankly, I had never been around so many folks in wheelchairs at one time. Most were armed services veterans and proudly wore their "colors". It's good to belong to an organization that recognizes those who have served our country and one that also remembers them by providing opportunities for continuing shooting and hunting experiences.

Larry reported that he has prepared our spot for the still target shoot next Saturday and is looking forward to the event.

For those of you who are able to attend and for everyone else, I'd like for you to know that the Rend Lake Shooting Complex has donated the space for the still target shoot. It's a most generous gift and much appreciated by all of us who've had a part in organizing it. Thank you Larry!

We hope to see you there,
Clark

For everyone planning to attend the shoot, here's the weather forecast for Saturday.

Saturday: "Times of sun and clouds. Highs in the upper 60s and lows in the upper 40s."

It will likely be quite cool when we get started at 9:00 a.m.
A jacket would be recommended.

Thanks,
Clark
