Pros : you can't have a better time in archery for the money spent! Great folks put it on and attend. I could go on but no need just go !
Cons: 5 hr. drive :-( but I go anyway. Church camp plastic covered mattress! But if you take a sleeping bag you won't sweat to bad. I go anyway! One of the best in Texas. That's why I go anyway.

What happened to the "Dreams come true" or what ever the name of that other one at Chester last year?

Bill, one suggestion you might consider. If y'all put out the cobra again this year you might want to put scoring instructions next to the target. The rings are so small that it's easy to confuse an 8 and 10.

Ronnie, sad to say that they decided not to put on another shoot. They lost money. They put on the shoot at the request of one of the kids that they helped. They came to us, when they had trouble getting a club in Louisiana to work with. They are a great bunch of ladies.

ballgame: that is a good idea and will do. Not only small, but it has multiple scoring areas.

Biggest con for me is too few weekends. Fortunately I have an opportunity to go help a friend on a project.
I wasn't gonna win it but I was hoping to shoot Randy's bows while there to see if I was ready to order one.
Oh well. Maybe next year.

I'll be there. Made a shift swap at work to be off that weekend. We're staying at my inlaw's lake camp on Rayburn, about a 35 min drive. Chester is always a great shoot with great folks. Looking forward to it.

Weather forecast is for 90 degrees both Saturday and Sunday with little chance of rain

Bring bug spray, deer flies were bad in the woods, and did find one tick on pants leg Saturday afternoon.

Bisch, Laurie is telling me she is trying to get boudan balls for Friday night supper

Meal prices:
Breakfast - $5
Lunch - $5
Supper - $6

Going up early tomorrow morning to put finishing touches on course, set up the pavilion for the vendors, turn on water heaters, AC, etc.
See you when you get here.
Will not have very good phone access, but you can try to contact me, leave message
