We need an all out promo effort on Danville. It has just been added to the schedule, and it seems Team Wurstmacher has stepped up to the plate to help with Instruction.

What we need is a broad promo effort by everyone. Let let folks know about this shoot ASAP.

You can find shoot info and flyers to print here.......

And of course, if your a SB and your reading this, we could use your expertise here  <:)

As for the all those Orange Hats that are not signed on to Danville already, you have an oppurtunity to bump yourself up a notch in Riley IN.
There will be an Instructor Boot Camp held that weekend in conjuction with an Appleseed at the same range. Riley is just East of Terre Haute and is the closest IBC to Illinois for quite some time. Take advantage of this opportunity!!!!
Here is the link

Are you looking for help with promotion, or for a SB for the event?

I'm a SB, but I live in Texas.  However, Danville is nearly home for me (I'm from Champaign).  If we think this is a big enough event to pay airfare for, I'd be happy to fly in.  I'm encouraging a couple of friends from Champaign to attend this event, and it would be great to be an instructor on the line.

Thanks for Asking Metalbot, yes we need both promotion and an SB.

We have it set up for 40 shooters with a relay, so I'm not too sure how well that would work with airfare, though if we can squeeze you into one of those fixed rate USPS boxes, hmmmmmmm........

Or better yet ship you with the shoot box O0

Let's get a quote on airfare for Metalbot to go anyways.
They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as Rangers against the Indians and Canadians and this country being much covered with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for their method of fighting. . . . ".  Lord Percy

Sounds like New Englanders to me.

I will be there so you know you want to come out.

Danville is my home range, I want to be an instructor there.  I've PM'd Nickle.  Not qualified (haven't jumped through all the hoops) to be shoot boss.  But I'm willing to learn.

5 pre regs for Danville so far, and I haven't even hit the promotions hard yet in Champaign County.  Will be doing so as of this week.  35 slots to fill, 33 days to fill them.

Matriarc of Team Wurstmacher here, we are promoting this one pretty hard.  I think the first 5 preregs are people we have gotten off the couch.  Word out to many, many more!  Let's fill this one up Illinois!!  Love having the opportunity so close to home base.  Thanks to The Editor for opening up this range to us!

I have definite mail ins from six people, talked to another tonight that is pretty definite, and have 12 that I'm calling in the next couple of days; pretty sure we can get 8 or 10 of them.  Handed out another hundred fliers last night at guns save life.com meeting, with instructions to spread the word. 

Don't be fooled by the 7 pre regs to date.

We now have 11 pre-regs on line, and I have forms, checks and or committments from a minimum of 10 others, with about 5 more good possibility maybes.  I think we'll get some other walks ons as well. 

Looking forward to it. 

EEL, I'll call you tonight after I get off work.
