    Norm Gilmoure here, After weeks of deliberation on this decision I will run for the northern Illinois directors position. I was asked some years ago and due to my traveling to other shoots I felt I could not do the job then and run my vending buisness. Since starting a store I'm still busy but am not traveling as before and feel I'll have the time to give back to the sport that has given me so much since 1975. For those that know me please tell other shooters about me. I have shot at most northern Illinois clubs and many in central Illinois. I have travelled around the central states over the last 6 years and have enjoyed all the state shoots and friends I have met. CAUTION I can't stand cheaters,sandbaggers and thiefs. I have run my own buisnesses and have helped my own club Downers Grove throw some great ATA shoots. If anyone has questions about certain issues send me an Email or stop by the store and shoot the bull. Store phone is 815-942-2788.. This sport is one of the greatest ever made and I can see tough times ahead both with the economy and with future memberships. I only hope I can shoot till I'm a senior Vet and still enjoy this freedom. Thanks for all that would consider voting for me and I'll respect those that don't, Remember freedom of choice hasn't been taken away yet. Norman Gilmoure Life member ATA, ITA, NRA,and ISTA.

    Hi Norm, Don Kerce here. Who are you running against or is it an open position. Just wondering, as I am an old Illinois shooter.

    Norm, you have my full support. I may not always agree with you, but I always know where you stand and that you will make a good argument for your stance.<br>
    I also know you would give someone in need the shirt off your back. Good luck, Harv Shell.

    It's usually between 100's of the Singles event, that would be Sunday.

    I asked Jim Matteson the same ? last week as I thought this had been worked out before. We thought there was a bylaw as to when the votes were taken But it didn't seem fair to not allow shooters to vote on saturday if they are unable to make the shoot Sunday and have their votes count. I think the Directors will make a desision about this by the shoot. This is an issue that I would like to see changed so any shooters vote would count either day. Norm
