    Bump! The Club has updated and improved the lighting for the games trap field. The brightness will be roughly one and a half times what it used to be in the past. This should remove any problems with seeing the birds. The club has invested considerable time, money, and effort into this project. We plan to update the other lighted fields in the near future. Come on out on a friday night to see and for yourselves. Thanks, Rick Gibbs

    The real question is.....is Annie coming back as our puller? Good on the button and nice on the eyes. Hope she's there on Fridays - makes the long drive worth it. Who else thinks Annie is a great puller?

    What's the $13 for if it costs $2 for each game? Is this some sort of new math I don't know about?

    It cost $13 bucks for each shooter just to shoot the games..Even if you shoot one game it is the same 13 bucks for the club..The two bucks is if you lose the game.....Most clubs charge 4 bucks for 25 targets and add up the shooters that pay to shoot ..20 shooter at 4 bucks =500 targets..and then when the targets are used up they do the thing again..Most game shooters have a target counter on the machines..20 shooters @4 bucks = 80 dollars for targets...
    At Downers Grove 20 shooters @$13 dollars =$260 dollars..for the club..
    Big difference between 80 bucks and 260 bucks for the club..The big winner is Downers Grove club ...

    13.00 dollars for games is the norm. It pays for the puller it pays for the electric.It pays for the club to exsist. Dont knock it . These clubs have to charge and survive .Otherwise we have to STAY home and listen to the old lady carp about somthing ... Chuck
