    June 30th-July 1st will be the 2nd Annual Del-Tone/Luth Independence Classic in St. Cloud, MN. We learned a lot from last year's shoot and we think we have a much more exciting and fun shoot this year!!

    This year we have $4,500 added cash, a DPMS .223 Rifle, a pair of Scheel's Sporting Goods Paragon binoculars ($449 retail value) and $900.00 in Scheel’s Sporting Goods gift cards!!!!!

    The shoot program will consist of a 100 target singles event and two 100 target handicap events on Saturday June 30th and two 100 target handicap events on Sunday, July 1st!!!

    Prizes will be awarded to class winners, AA, A, B, C and D with veteran, junior and lady categories in the singles event.

    In the handicap events there will be 3 yardage groups:

    18 to 22 ½ yards, 23 to 26 ½ yards and 27 yards.

    The High Gun in each Handicap Event will win a $75.00 Scheel’s Sporting Goods Gift Card and the Winner of each Yardage Group of each Handicap Event will win a $50.00 Scheel’s Sporting Goods Gift Card. All ties will be shot off!! No flipping the coin at Del-Tone/Luth!!

    ADDED MONEY AND MERCHANDISE!!!
    The High Gun of the 200 total Handicap Targets on Saturday will win a pair of Scheel's Sporting Goods Paragon binoculars ($449 retail value) and the High Gun of the 200 Handicap Targets on Sunday will win a DPMS .223 rifle!!!! Yep, ties will be shot off for these awards also!!!

    The top 5 combined scores for the total 400 handicap targets in each yardage group will shoot off for the $1,500.00 added money for that group. If we have 10 individuals who have shot one of the top 5 combined scores, then we’ll have a 10 man/woman shoot off. Remember, this is the combined scores of each shooter on the 400 total targets. In order to be eligible for the added money, you must have shot all 4 handicap events!!! Money will be divided:

    1st - $500, 2nd - $400, 3rd - $300, 4th - $200, 5th - $100

    A Free dinner for all shooters and their families and a "Special Event" will be held Saturday after the shooting has finished!!

    The club is about an hour northwest of Minneapolis and camp sites with water and electric are available.

    Come on out, have some fun and take advantage of your 2 yard reduction to win some cash or some great prizes! PM me if you have any questions about the area, accommodations or anything else. You can also call/email Jeff Hoppes the club manager, (320)251-9873/jeff@del-tone-luth.com, with questions or to reserve a campsite. Camping is $10/per night.

    Both myself and Jeff would like to send a “BIG THANK YOU” out to all the individuals who have made this shoot possible.
    John Houle, Pat Laib, Randy and Pam Luth, Scheel’s Sporting Goods, DPMS, Rengel Printing and numerous anonymous donators.
    We'll get the official program and some photos on here soon, but mark your calendars now!

    Here are some pics of the club and the "new" background. A lead reclamation project has left "Lake Hoppes" visible in the distance.

    The Viking Shoot is there this weekend. It would be a great chance to come out and get a little warm up in for the Independence Classic!

    Here's a little taste of what's waiting the top shooters at the Independence Classic on Saturday, June 30th and Sunday, July 1st at Del-Tone/Luth Gun Range in St. Cloud, Minnesota. On Saturday the top combined score of Events 2 & 3 will win the Paragon binoculars, ($450 value), from Scheel's Sporting Goods store. On Sunday, the top combined score of Event 4 & 5 will the DPMS Panther .223 - 5.56 rifle with upper and lower railings, a special muzzle break, adjustable stock, two mags and case. Any Takers???

    Almost forgot to mention the $4,500 up for grabs. Remember, its the top 5 combined scores of the 400 handicap targets of each YARDAGE GROUP. Each group will split $1,500 - $500, $400, $300, $200, $100.

    If anyone would like to look at the program, please click on the link located in the 7th entry of this thread.

    Like Eric said, Ertz. And for the added cash you'll stay in the yardage group you started out in so if you start in the 18-22 1/2 group and make it to the 24 your scores on the total 400 will be looked at against other 18-22 1/2 shooters and that's the added cash you'd shoot off for.
