First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who worked on or participated in the shoot. This was the first State Championship still target shoot sponsored by the Jackson County Wild Turkeys. We're a new chapter, just in our second year but we have a great committee and group of volunteers.
We had a good turnout of shooters and spectators at the recently reopened Rend Lake Shooting Complex in Ina, Illinois. It was an overcast day but we concluded the event without being hampered by any rain.

We were able to begin the shoot at about 9:30 a.m. and shooters were on their way home by 1:00 p.m., with some very nice prizes, I might add.
Again, a big thank you to all the shooters, workers and to the Rend Lake Shooting Complex for making this shoot a real success.
"If he's out of range, it just means that he has another day and so do you."
