    It's June 9 through 17. It starts with the Colonial Classic the first three days, then the prelims. The biggest action is 15-16-17.

    There's plenty of Hotel and great resturants in every direction. Shamoken, the home of White Flyer, is also home of the world's best homade ice cream (their bittersweet has won national competitions) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Maurers-Dairy-Ice-Cream-Shoppe/120897611257526

    Just got a note from my pal Tom, and a correction is in order. Even though the dates are correct; The Colonial Classic portion of the shoot is a two day event only: Saturday and Sunday, the 9th & 10th of June. The State shoot officially starts on Monday, the 11th of June.

    Thanks, Tom.

    Thanks for the update....

    What is the difference between the colonial and the PA state events?

    I'm not out to the win the big money prizes. I'm not at that level yet. I'm going for the experience of a big shoot, the trade show/vendors and have a good time.

    As long as I can do that I'm good cause the 9 & 10th weekend is better for me anyway

    It's rather complicated, and 682 gives as good an explanation as you'll find. If you look at the two groups that supposedly sanction the events when the points get posted it becomes even more confusing. The State shoot is run and scored/reported by PSSA, and the Colonial Classic by a shadow organization although all the names and places are the same. I got a, sort of, official explanation once, and it made my head itch; but as 'ol LINY offered, it's the AA points chase that drives the silliness. In any case, it ends up being the 2nd largest shoot in the nation, second only to the Grand, and in my opinion, better run.

    It's a great shoot in a great location and with lots of nice trophies and it is as good a run shoot as you will find anywhere. Don't miss it.

    I have the same question as Jon. What is the status of the lawsuit between PSSA and Valley Gun Club?

    Also, Open Choke, the Best Western in Danville offers special discount rates to trap shooters during the state shoot. I don't know if other hotels do the same, but it is certainly worth asking when you make reservations.
