    I thought about going and see how it is going to be this year since the new guys took it over I have heard in the past that they are more into the other types of shooting instead of promoting trap as much I sure hope it's not true because I do like to shoot there.

    I plan on going over, so change your travel plans foggy! :)

    Hopefully the weather holds. Looking to be about 52 -- or about 30 degrees higher than Carmi's last shoot :)

    Dennis went to the Sparta complex last year and I don't know who runs it now but was told it was some from the St. Louis Mo gun club thats all I know.

    Forrest it was pretty nippy in Hopkinsville last night also.

    I just noticed the program for Rends shoot on Sunday, does the entry fee hide a compulsory purse ????
    Would Neil or Pat or any one with ATA experience please comment.
    Looks like a good weather forecast. no rain or wind. Kirk

    Maybe a better wording of the Guaranteed Purse would be <i>Cash Payout in-lieu of Trophy.</i> The confusion or question about compulsory purse comes from the rule book page 33 where it states;

    <i>Section VIII, A. No compulsory purse and/or option of any type shall be permitted in any tournament in which ATA trophies or ATA added monies are provided.</i>

    Since there are no ATA trophies or ATA added monies advertised in the flyer then section 8 does not apply.

    The flyer is written in such a way that management will not incure a loss on the purchase of trophies if there is a small turnout.

    Just one shooter's opinion. I would prefer a $20.00/100 entry fee and run everything else as an "option".

    Rend Lake is a very nice place to shoot but it is almost over my distance limit for a 1 day shoot. Still trying to decide if I'm going to make the trip. What is the starting time and what order will the events run?

    Hope you have a good shoot tomorrow and a great '07 season! Best of luck to the new management.

    I saw that also and figured it could be no trophies and just money per shooter but at 25.00 a 100 for a small shoot I think I will just wait and pay the same at some of the larger state shoots and even the grand was 25.00 but of course plus the 3.00 for the site fee.

    I am with tumbleweed on the rather to pay 20.00 and the rest as options.

    I think I have shot out this week end already so I think I will just sleep in tomorrow instead.
