    As always I have gone ahead and reserved the camping area for our group! For those of you attending for the first time and interested in camping with us you are more then welcome. We camp at Paradise Park Campground just a mile or so down the road from the bow shoot. The campground has been wonderful to us over the years allowing us to setup a range and over pack the area we camp with people! In the coming weeks I will be posting all the details so everyone can call and make reservations but don't fear we are all set! Please do not start calling them till I post the info.

    It has been the first Saturday in June for the last 6 years and don't see that changing anytime in the future.

    Alright I have been asked for more information regarding the campground and procedures.

    Like I have already mentioned we camp just down the road from the bow shoot. The campground for many years now has been extremely nice to us allowing us to set up an archery range! The majority of campers are in the primitive section. We camp between two fishing ponds and showers are just a short walk across the bridge. They do have showers for use.

    Regarding the archery range: We will have a roped off section and all shooting must be in that area. Other campers ALWAYS have priority so if anyone is out walking around the ponds or out fishing all shooting will cease till they are gone.

    Everyone is welcome to arrive whenever they would like. The majority of people tend to arrive Thursday night or Friday morning. I will be arriving on Tuesday morning(if not Monday). As usual I will once again host the Fergus Friday Night Bonfire! For those of you not staying at the campground but in the area you are welcome to come over and join us at any time.

    I will be posting all the pricing details and contact information for the campground in the coming weeks so stay tuned! And please feel free to PM me if you have any other questions!

    Well I have been doing all I can to get people signed up on the list for camping and from the looks of it I think we might have a pretty small group this year. If you are planning on camping please put your name on the list. I want to make sure that we have everything setup and planned out ahead of time
