Title: THNX from the Howard Hill Classic
Post by: T. W. Harris on June 04, 2019, 07:42:24 AM
I'd like to thank all who came to support my 15th Howard Hill Classic as well as the IBO Mid America.

Thanks also to all the Vendors who came as well.

Yep, 294 shooters, way down from last year, any thoughts?  Perfect weather, new targets, I thought it was a great set up.

Terry,

I think you did the best you could to promote this event and the IBO Mid America. The weather was perfect for this time of year, not that you could have impacted it, but it worked out to be a great weekend.

The courses were well laid out, new targets, prices were right, so I don’t know what else could of been done besides hog tying and bringing them in 🤷‍♂️😁

Nothing on you or your crew to be down about, I know we were going to be a group of three but sickness and health issues knocked my partners out of going.

I really wish I could have made it, but I had too many family functions going on.

I'd like to thank a few good people who without their help, this dual event wouldn't have been possible.

My friends Gary Zimmer, Mike Carlton, Johnny Lee, Alen Marsee along with his son Colby and several Camp Jack Wright Committee members who helped me set out my course and also helped set up Course B for the IBO.  There was also two young Boy Scouts who also helped us set out targets on my course as well.

Then on Sunday, Johnny, Gary, Alen and a few Committee members helped take down the Howard Hill course, then took the targets on the IBO course A off the road and completely took IBO's course B down.  They then put the targets in one spot then helped the IBO personnel load their targets on their trailer.

Speaking of Alen Marsee, he should be commended for making sure, EVERY WATER STATION on all three courses had ice water in each cooler as well as the coolers under the main pavilion.
