    It's a good shoot. I go every year. Not as well attended as I think it should be. The Sat singles event had 288 shooters last year. No, there are not a lot of vendors. I stay on the grounds. There is a country music festival on the grounds the same week-end again this year.

    I inquired about a program and the guy running the shoot this year referred me to presquad.com. Apparently, he doesn't plan to put out a program? (Chris Hespin has moved to another position - too bad.)

    If you pm me your e-mail address I'll e-mail you the shoot program.

    $15k in added money. And pre-squad is $1.00 per post.

    Hope to see you.

    It's a great shoot. I always seem to shoot good at that shoot. Trying to rehab my new shoulder so I can get a few targets in there this year. Hope to see some of you there.

    This shoot should be a great ATA shoot but three things stand out. One, is poor promotion. Two, is chintzy trophys for a shoot that they're trying to grow. Three, is just plain the same kind of poor attendance by folks coming from further away like we've been seeing at Missouri due to economy and fuel costs.

    We need to build up our regional participation. We don't have the luxury of the number of local shooters like the Cardinal Center has to draw from.
