    There may be others (and better ones) out there, but this might suit your purposes.

    Phil, I think they are shuffling some tent vendors, and I don't know what else, but if you are plotting a line from your campsite to bank 13 and the peach ice cream, it's good enough.

    If you find a better one somewhere, post it, please.

    It's kinda fun to look at on Google Earth, but the resolution there is no great shakes.

    MMMMMM! Peach ice cream. Calhoun County Peaches (the best in the world) and homemade vanilla ice cream. Worth the trip.

    I have a map from the 1st grand at Sparta. It measures 11"x17" but what makes it interesting on the back it has a list of vendors. Three vendor areas are listed. First - Vendor Building area which lists 34 vendors, 2nd - Vendor Mall which lists 20 vendors and 3rd - Tent Vendors which lists 80 vendors. Of those 134 vendors I wonder how many will be at this years Grand? Map was printed by the Sparta News-Plaindealer Newspaper so they might have copies available to the public.

    I think the Sparta newspaper has folded.

    I have tried to find the World Shooting Complex on Google Earth, but I can't seem to locate it. I can find a label for it, but no sign of any buildings or trap fields. Most trap clubs show up pretty clearly.

    Do you have the lat/longs?

    Thanks.

    Google Earth doesn't have an up-to-date image.

    You have to go to Mapquest:

    http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Sparta&state=IL&country=US&latitude=38.1231&longitude=-89.701698&geocode=CITY

    Switch the view to aerial,then double click until you get to the more detailed level. The WSRC is northwest of Sparta and south of Marissa.

    The 17th Street Grill is shown on Google Earth. The 17th Street Grill is in the WSRC Events Center.

    I am. I have located numerous trap fields on Google Earth...but this is really something. The size of it didn't register until I saw the aerial photo. I can only imagine what it must be like "in person".
