2005 Illinois State Championship

By Brad L. Glustoff
Page 66 of the October 2005 issue

The beautifully scenic Rend Lake Recreation Area in southern Illinois offers many outdoor activities, including golf, fishing, and bird hunting. But the reason more than 250 shooters were there for three days in the middle of July was to compete in the 2005 Illinois State Sporting Clays Championship.

The Rend Lake Shooting Complex sits on more than 400 wooded acres, with a 15-station sporting clays course originally designed by Marty Fischer. Dennis Sneed, general manager, and Bill McGuire, main target setter, set out to give the Illinois shooters an event to remember. With preliminary, 5-Stand, pump-gun, side-by-side, small-gauge, and 200-bird main events, nobody left feeling shortchanged.

The full shoot report can be found in the October 2005 issue of Sporting Clays.
