Default Just In New Tourney: 2021 Chester Classic

So happy to announce that May 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 2021 we will host an traditional archery tournament at the historic Camp Takula in Chester, TX. The camp and the IBO will sponsor this favorite annual tournament that we all have loved over the years. Proceeds will benefit the kids camp and the IBO kids events. It will be very close to the previous tournament format with additional games and festivities for all to enjoy. More info and flyer to come. You will be able to camp or stay in the lodges on site. Cafeteria will be open. I will get all the specifics in the next few days. Just wanted to get the date out there so you can make plans to attend this great event. So excited to add this back to the schedule for traditional archery in Texas!!!

Here you go! I know it is short notice but this just came available. We are so excited to get a tournament back in Chester. Happy to be part of it and hopefully each year we can make it bigger and better. Next year if all works out we can get it back to the weekend after Mother's Day. Call with questions or if you need lodging.

Lodging is $25 per night per person. All meals are $10. These are some of the types of food Camp Takula will serve: Big Breakfast: bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy. Cereal available. Hamburgers; BBQ sandwiches; Chicken or Beef Spaghetti with garlic bread
and vegetable; Chicken strips with mashed potatoes and gravy plus
vegetable; chicken fajitas, rice, beans. These can vary so this is not
the specific menu. We always have salad and serve dessert with each
meal.

Are there any "Participation Trophies"? I'm going to need one!

Maybe a T-Shirt that says "1st Time Shooter That Sucked the Least". Or some such.

If you know of any vendors or bowyers who want to come please share the information. Air conditioned vending location for anyone who is interested. There has been many who have reserved lodging. This is going to be a great event.

Default Commemorative Keychains.

Can’t get pic to load of the keychains. Lots of activity and people getting their overnight lodging. If your planning to come and eat at the cafeteria please let me know. The camp needs a count for food preparation. The camp thanks you and the IBO thanks you. Will be lots of fun. Bring the kids.

Just to clarify it is not a sanctioned IBO shoot. It is a Texas shoot with TBOT rules and classes and the IBO is sponsoring it along with Camp Takula. We are fortunate to have the IBO to supply new Rinehart targets. Just a note for those who might be interested. The IBO is huge supporters of archery and getting kids involved thru the NASP 3D program. The
IBO is a nonprofit group who help protect our bowhunting rights. I am fortunate to be their TX rep and have their support to offer a tournament to TX of this quality. It will be a very nice one.
