    Just wondering how the Cardinal Classic is going? Is there a good turnout? Hoping to be there tomorrow.

    Just left there - beautiful weather - steady stream of campers coming in - hcp going but about normal for prelim day. Noticeable lack of youngsters (school in session for most I guess)

    The shoot is going great! Perfect weather, good targets, nice group of vendors. The grounds are well mowed. It is just what you think of when you are looking for a real shoot to go to.

    I just don't know how it could have been any better than today at the Cardinal Classic. The weather was perfect, I saw 2 broken targets out of the 1000 thrown in front of me, the entry building went quick, and I talked with a bunch of nice people. I shot with a young man (70ish) who had his first 100 straight and my Dad also had 100 in our squad. I think everyone but me had a camper there. I was told that the campground was sold out and I believe it as they were setting campers behind banks 1-4 where the vendors had been previously. Thanks to the Fishburns and Cardinal Classic tournament management for a great day.

    Leaveing in the morning for Cardinal. I really appreciate the short drive,100 miles. Everything you need within 10 miles or less. The Sparta Grand is a long haul for me,but I have only missed 1 shoot there. Was glad to see a lot of my Ohio & Illinois shooter friends there. I have 52 or 53 Grand attendance now, lost count. Gonna try for 55 if possible? Sparta is an outstanding facility,just the location.

    BTW, according to rjstuart, it looks like Kurt Fohl enjoyed his day at the Cardinal Center as well. He had 100 in both the singles and the handicap. Now that is a great day!

    I overheard where Jaquas had a great Grand, sales wise.
    Less people, (aka tire kickers, like me) but more buyers.

    Cardinal sales looked busy Wed.

    90 degree's. OMG how can you stand the heat. I thought it was never supposed to be over 75 in Ohio.

    FlaLagarto, So you are saying the Cardinal maintenance/condition is no better than the WRSC? You should file a complaint to Jack.

    I was there on Wednesday, first time. What a great shooting club, lay-ed out great, easy parking. I don't know how a shooting club could be any better. Maybe a good restaurant and bar? I have been to a lot of clubs in my 37 years of shooting. From the West Coast to the East Coast, and the Cardinal Center is as good as it gets.....
