Camping at Tannehill State Park is a first come basis. Here is Tannehill State Park's web- site. www.tannehill.org

I also want to let everyone know that camping along the creek, right across the bridge coming into Farley Field is available to us again. For those that may remember, the Gem & Jewelry Show had those locked up every year, we've got them now.

When you're camping, if you get into the Park after hours, either the Park Ranger may stop by, or you can go to the General Store the next morning.

If you don't camp and are coming back and forth, after you pay to get into the Park, make sure you get a Park Pass from me at the Registration Table, so you won't have to pay but once.

Let me hopefully give a more detailed description of the "Championship Shoot Down"

First, the Howard Hill Classic has always been a Multi Round event. Your first round could be your highest or your very last round could be your highest to try and place in the HH Classic Awards.

You can shoot your main bow for competition and then shoot your other bows for fun, for one fee, OR, if you want to compete with your other bows, you would have to pay a fee to enter another Class.

NOW, with all that said, ONLY your first round qualifies you for the "Championship Shoot Down".

So, if you think your longbow will give you the best chance at a good first round score, use it. The same can be said if you think your recurve will. Let me also say again, there will be a separate Shoot Down for the Men's & Women's Longbow & Recurve shooters.

Four Shoot Downs, each 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Winners will split $1000.00 for a total of a $4000.00 pay out for the "Championship Shoot Down".

For you men or women that shoot self bows, if your first round qualifies you, you will get to compete in the Longbow Shoot Down.

For those men that will compete in the Men's Senior or Men's Supper Senior divisions, even though you may use any bow you want, YOU MUST inform us at the Registration Table as to what bow you shoot on your first round. This way, we'll know if that round will qualify you and in what class you'll be in for the Shoot Down.

Folks, let's not forget about the 2nd "Rhonda's Luck of the Draw" shoot down.

This event last year was very cool.

For those archers just getting started or that just don't get to practice like those that really do, THIS COMPETITION IS FOR YOU.

SO TAKE YOUR BOW TO THE "Championship Shoot Down"!!!

We'll take the non qualifying shooters and put their names in a bucket, then draw FIVE names, of men & women.

We'll put each of the five on a different 5 target range and let them shoot 3 of the five targets.

There will be three winners. the 1st Place of each will win their choice of a Bear Archery "Montana Longbow" or "Grizzly Recurve". The 2nd Place will win $125.00 and the 3rd Place will win $75.00.

Oh, by the way, the man that won $100.00 last year, had never shot in a traditional archery competition before.

Last year, the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners of the Championship Shoot Down, from both the Men & Women got to shoot for the American Traditional Archer's "Top Shot" award.

This year will now have the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners from the Men's & Women's Longbow & Recurve Shoot Downs. Six winners from the Men & Women's competition will be shooting ONE ARROW for this year's "Top Shot" award. This award stands 14 inches tall and 11 inches wide from wing tip to wing tip

Ya don't want to miss this year's event.

Tannehill State Park is an excellent placate camp for the entire family, Three Main Campgrounds, Three Bathhouse, a Laundry Room (just in case), Craft Cabins Iron & Steel Museum, and the Historical Furnace.

Some of the best archers around to shoot with, great times, great friendships made and in my opinion, one of the finest archery events around.

Let me bring up the CUBS Course again.

The Cubs Course will be set up very close to the Registration Area and all in the shade.

Not as many targets as on the Main Course, but extremely cool targets for the Cubs.

The parents can takes their Cubs around as often as they want, and it IS the Cub's competitive course.

The idea behind this is for those that want to get their small kids out and be able to patiently let them have their own targets to shoot, and respectively not slowing others up on the Main Course.

Here's is what every registered Cub will receive.

Ron, I have no doubt that you'll enjoy yourself here. Great Vendors and I have secured an outstanding food Vendor that will be here all three days, great tasting and VERY good prices, for example, a Bar B Q sandwich ( very tender and delicious wit approximately 5 oz of pork), a boat of fries and drink for $10.00. I was full and very satisfied. Hot dogs, corndogs, nachos, and other goodies. ALSO, there will be a Snow Cone stand for us kids.

I also pride myself on putting out a course, fun and yet some challenging shots as well.

Nearly 300 camping spots with water and electricity and almost unlimited primitive camping. Visit www.tannehill.org

Putting together many items for this year's raffles. Many were donated for last year's HH Classic, BUT, because of the uncertainty of even having the shoot, I didn't have any raffles.

I'll be raffling off bows for the Boy Scout Camp as well as a Big Jim Longbow and CD Archery riser with Dryad Longbow limbs to go toward the Cubs Course.

Let me add a footnote about raising money for the Boy Scout Camp. NO....I don't like the direction theNational Council of Boy Scouts have taken over the past few years. I try and raise money for the Camp, because I use a generous portion to place my course. The Committee over this Camp has never asked for a dime from me, but, I feel strongly about giving something back to improve the site, and have done so over the years. So far,I've raised and given approximately $46,000. This money has gone to help build latrines, small pavilions throughout the Camp and city water lines.

People, I've got a new Food Vendor coming out this year.

Food will be served Friday, Saturday through lunch & supper, and lunch through Sunday. Breakfast sandwiches on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Here's some of the menu:

Bar B Q sandwiches, hot dogs, old fashion hot dog, crinkle fries, nachos & cheese (ya can add pork), drinks, etc. For example, Bar B Q sandwich, (plenty of tender pork, I've had it) fries and drink, $10.00. (water, $1.00 less). Regular hot dogs, $2.00. Prices are very reasonable and the food is outstanding.

ALSO, there will be a Snow Cone stand as well.
