Im going down to DesPlaines Conservation Area this Saturday. We can make this an early one if we want. Might be good, it was hot shooting mid afternoon yesterday.

As always...anyone is welcome !!

NOW : Lets talking tournament ! !

If we have enough people that want in lets have a little competition !

Ive been thinking of a way to do this to make it more interesting, last longer and so on.

$5 to buy into the tourny.
Shoot 25 clays
Top 1/2 of guys/gals advance to next round
Shoot 12 clays
Top 3 advance to final round shoot off of 6 clays

Winner take all! !

This is assuming we have more than 4 guys, we may need to have 8 or so to make it interesting.

any thoughts on how to revise this?:cheers

Attendees:
1.Me
2.Crazy
3.HDTony
4.Ofc. Ponch
5.Odysseys
6.YZFRob

Keep in mind you do not have to shoot in the li'l tourny . You can still shoot with us anyway!

25,12,6 is an awful lot of clays. I'd say if we have 8 guys we could to 20, 10, 5. First round should rotate 2x's meaning 10 clays....rest....10 clays. Last 2 rounds could be fine without a rest. Bare in mind there will most likely be a shoot off in the last round so some guys will be shooting 3 or 5 more clays 1 or 2 more times.

Thats actually a good point Tony. Anyone should be allowed to shoot any gun thats down there. Some have guns that are set up to shoot clays.(Ponch)

Another thing I thought about:

How many shots per clay? One shot only or two shots? Maybe two shots for first round and one every other round?

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 01:56 PM
attrition is part of the game.! ! you get tired too fast too bad I say !:D

Maybe the key is not shooting 75 clays before starting this time

that's a good idea Mike. 2 shots in the first round might give some people a better chance to advance

lol.......my point is with shoot offs (ties) you might end up shooting a heck of alot more than what you originally stated anyway.;)


********EDIT******** and Mike....remember if we are going to be able to get 8 guys chances are some of them aren't going to be used to shooting 200 clays in 2 hours once a week like we are.:laughing :laughing

If said "clays" are the size of your average barn door, I should be okay :laughing

...but this coming Saturday is not good for me. Rat farts!

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 01:59 PM
Kim... Ill check Gander but I dont recall seeing any clays there that big ! !:laughing

would be great to have you there sometime!:)

HDTony
07-06-2004, 02:02 PM
I'm up for it 5 bucks is well worth it as a friendly wager.

I think if we are shooting one clay at a time (which is a good idea) 2 shots per clay is fine with me.

KBOlsen
07-06-2004, 02:03 PM
I'll get out there sooner or later... this is something I've wanted to try for a while!

Ofc. Ponch
07-06-2004, 02:48 PM
Thats alot of clays for $5, I say $10. Also if we go the elimination type competition any LOOSER can buy back into the next round for 3X the original entry.
That can make the pot grow and also add a little excitement to it.

Oh ya... two shots per clay, we can use shot count to be the tie breaker eliminating shoot offs.

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 02:51 PM
I was trying to keep this affordable:D

Its all good if you win but if you lose and then add $10 to your ammo and clay cost it could get pricey. 6 or 8 guys still gives the opportunity to take home a little coin.

and buying back in? fagetaboutit! you aint flashing cash and buying back in ! you miss you lose:twofinger

Ofc. Ponch
07-06-2004, 02:53 PM
I'm just a poor boy from the wrong side of the tracks!
I could never afford to buy back in, then again I don't plan on having too.

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 03:10 PM

so are you in then?

you can still shoot with us if youre interested

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 04:46 PM
we might be down there at 7am or so but will probably be there until 10 or so. maybe later. You could show up whenever you wanted:)

YZFRob
07-06-2004, 04:55 PM
What about us that just want to shoot for fun? :D (I get my last paycheck Friday:D)

How big is this place? 500yds? Could we have Ken hold up a clay in each hand and we can all take turns seeing who can hit them?:evil

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 05:44 PM
Rob, this is a clay shoot area only. No rifles so you'll have to work something out with Ken directly on that !:D

You're more than welcome to shoot with us and not take part in the tourny. This is a 100% informal deal just for shits and giggles.:D

4 boxes of shells and a case of clays is more than enough. Wally World is normally the cheapest but Galyans have been pretty cheap too lately. Get 7.5's or 8's for clays

YZFRob
07-06-2004, 06:09 PM
Mike I do have a rifled slug barrel I could use.:D:D


BTW can I just use std target loads? I couldnt find that low brass stuff at Gander here in town.

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 06:13 PM
yes Rob but I think you can only shoot #5 or 6 or smaller...meaning a number higher than that.

YZFRob
07-06-2004, 06:22 PM
As long as its 7-8 its fine? Why cant they make shotgun shells simple to understand like thermal dynamics?:D:D:D

2weelpilot
07-06-2004, 06:27 PM
7 or 7.5 or 8's are fine.

Thermal dynamics....talk amoungst yourselves:twofinger

07-07-2004, 02:28 PM
anyone else in on this? Im getting my tourny form completed ! !

Ken, Rick, Kelly, Bruce, Wayne, Rob, JustMax, Ohfugit? who am I missing?

Meulen
07-07-2004, 02:30 PM
I'm pretty sure I'm there. Been busy this week so I gotta find time to go get some stuff. I may be a last minute buy in.:D

YZFRob
07-07-2004, 06:05 PM
BTW do they allow pistols? Maybe get some action (aka quick draw) shooting competition going.:D:D:D

Pretty Funny! Don't you have a roof to fall off of tonight?

1) Will gun swapping be allowed?
2) Will it be 1 shot or two per clay?
3) How many clays per round and rounds or will we just do a best out of X?
4) Why no full auto?


WOW, thunder and lightning is pretty wicked right now...........................yes I still shoot in lightning storms!

1. yes
2. 2 shots per clay with shot count counting in a ending shoot off
3. good question (any ideas anyone?)
4. cause I'm afraid of what you would bring out, and for some reaso I'm picturing it attached to a trailer behind your truck :D

Oh and its raining I only go fall off the roof when its dry out :D

HDTony
07-09-2004, 10:56 PM
Oh by the way if your bringin ganything larger than 6's keep them hidden if the wardens come out 6 or smaller is the rule for the park.

remember, we are shooting right at I-55 short range ammo is a good thing. :laughing

They are both very close in size and can be easily mistaken for each other.

The one on the left is smaller than .60, not much smaller though.

Rob, check the radar in the am before pulling out. If its a monsoon maybe think twice, its a hike for you.

Bruce, Barrington is about an hour and a half from I55 and exit 241. Its up to you if its worth it for 90 minutes of clays.

Ill be up at 6:15. If anyone wants to check on whether we're shooting give me a jingle my cell is 630-842-3515

need to find a 5 dollar bill all I have is 20's....wait I wont need it ! ! Im just collecting !:twofinger
