    There may be a list available at the Service Desk in the Event Center.

    All the usual suspects will be there, though.

    It would be nice to see a list here though. Good for the shooters and better for the vendors.

    Will you attend the Grand skeet, or are you just curious, or looking for something to post?

    Make the drive, I really doubt you will be disappointed.


    For Sure Shamrock Leathers will be there for your shooting bag needs. They set up a large tent just past the practice banks.


    Of course there will be a wide selection of other shooting bags there at the various vendors as well.


    I've never seen anyone doing engraving on site, but of course the K-Gun folks will be there.


    Pilla glasses no problem.


    I'd call both the ATA and WSRC and ask for a list if you must know before hand.


    At 5.5 hours I'd make it a 2-day trip.

    I do believe there was a engraver there last year. In the vendor buildings somewhere.

    You should go, list or no list. All that you desire is there.

    For a Grand program, go to the ATA's website.

    Skeet,

    I don't have glasses, bags or do engraving.. but I'll be there starting Thur. Aug. 2nd making custom molded ear plugs. Vendor spot #27

    Bill Mains is one of the best engravers around and he is normally there. You will have a good supply of dealers selling eye protection.. as well as several dealers selling shooting bags.. both leather and fabric.

    Bring a gun and shoot one of the events.. you might enjoy it, I know I do

    The vendors are under the thumb of the IDNR....the ATA really doesn't have anything to do with them. The rental of the buildings and the tents all goes to the IDNR. Last year I BEGGED for a list to make available at the Member Services desk and never got one, so good luck with that.

    Terry if you want a "published" copy I believe we have an extra one if you'd like.

    Does anybody know who usually sells Hy Wyd glasses there and where they set up?

    Thanks Guy but it would probably not get here in time, mine might show up before I leave next Thursday.

    They keep telling us they have trouble sending them to Canada but they never did up until about the last 3 years. Ohio, Florida, Missouri, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania all seem to have no trouble sending us one.

    After attending the Grand and shooting the whole main week and most of the prelims for over 32 years not getting one really irritates me.

    Terry.

    My choice for Decot Hy-Wyd glasses would be Susie Gray - Gray's Shotgun Cache. I believe they will be behind the practice trap on the East Trap Line vendor area.
