Any open seats in IL/ IA for June 7-8?
« on: June 05, 2014, 12:29:54 PM »
Just got word from RWVA that the Jun 7-8- shoot at Cambridge IL has been cancelled due to range erosion from recent heavy rains.  Since I don't mind driving a bit, I was wondering if there are any shoot bosses with some empty seats this weekend in the northern IL / Eastern IA area?  Would like to jump in if possible.  Thanks in advance.

From the schedule, it looks like the next shoot in either IL or IA is the weekend of June 14.

If you're willing to drive to WI (and get some squeaky cheese curds) there are shoots in both Racine and Gordon.

Come see us in Bloomington next weekend.  It is going to be a very nice shoot.  We would love to see you.

I just noticed this thread, and as luck would have it, scuzzy, scoutcamper and I have been playing around with code to find "what's the nearest / soonest shoot to a particular zip code'.  This looks like a good test case, so I put in the zip for the Cambridge in my latest version, and I get:

Appleseed - 1 Day

This weights one mile distance equal to one day in the future.  (Some of the fields are gibberish that links our internal systems.)

Yup, looks like Bloomington for the win!
