March 15 and 16; please hold the dates!

This will be at the Rock Ranch once again, but we have a new location in the Southwest corner of the Ranch.
We will have access to: 2 pole barns, a nice field and edge of the woods to camp in, woods for the courses, much easier access to the sight, (off Jackson Drive),and maybe showers.
The Rock Ranch is really going out of the way for us to have a place this year.

Fyler attached to get you in the mood.
Please mark your calender!

Many thanks to Jeff, Dan, Donnie, Gene and Lee for all they did...also thanks to Dennis, Barry, Chuck, Tony and others I can't remember for their help along the way.
Thanks Big Jim as well for being there w much needed supplies for everyone.


Yesterday was a beautiful day. We enjoyed the course and spent some time fishing before the pot luck dinner. Here's one of Nolan that Shannon took...

Yes sir, that was a mighty fine campfire we shared. Congrats on the blue ribbon. You really have gotten good with that selfbow!

Rachel took lots and lots of pictures with Jeff's camera, and I'm sure they'll be posted as soon as he gets time.

I'll tell you what, we had a big time! Many thanks to the officers and help that made it possible. And thanks especially to the Rock Ranch for graciously letting us use their beautiful property.

To me, this venue is about as good as it gets for this event. We had plenty of room, water and baths, beautiful woods and pastures, and two lakes to fish in( plenty of fish and they were tasty too!). The courses were challenging and fun.

Saturday was beautiful; sunny and warm, and today: well nothing's perfect. But even in a downpoor we shot anyway, and laughed doing it.

I was mighty proud to have such a good turnout. Thanks to all who made it, and to all the out of staters too. We had folks from all over, including one fellow from north of Chicago. He talked kinda funny, but he seemed to enjoy a campfire too:rofl:

All in all a great weekend.

Wonderful Weekend! Love the new place we have, its a 'keeper' for sure. I can't wait to see how the place looks next year. Saturday night potluck was awesome as usual and I was so happy to see so many faces at our little cookout Friday night. Todd did a wonderful job smoking that Boston Butt. We plan to do that again next year so count joining us if you come early to the shoot. I love all of you, you are the family I choose :)

I sure was looking forward to that but hopefully next year I will be doing better. These allergies get me every year about this time.:mad:

Glad you all had a great time and am looking forward to the pic's Rachel took. No doubt she did a great job filling in for Tomi!:)

I/we as traditional archers and bowhunters have so much to be grateful for here in Georgia! I want to thank those who participated in any way in our 2014 Dan Quillian Memorial State Shoot.

If you came to shoot or came to watch, I want to thank you. You were witness to history. We had what surely must be a record number of participants in the coon shoot on Friday night. Thirty two folks shot in the dark and paid $5 each to do so. The winner of the event is a youth class shooter who whipped us all and won $160 in the process. Congratulations to Dustin Fountain. You also saw a beautiful day on Saturday and two great courses of 20 targets each to shoot, or shoot at. We met a lot of new friends this weekend. That's a good thing. We are attracting people to become a part of our family. We also welcomed folks that had a hand in starting TBG who'd been absent for 20 years or more. That's also a good thing. Thank you all for being there!

I want to thank Tony Smith, TBG's Youth Program Coordinator. Tony has become such a friend of the folks at The Rock Ranch that we ride on his shoulders into a great venue for our premier shooting event. Our facilities were outstanding this weekend! Tony is the reason for our being able to enjoy such a nice place to have our fun.

I want to thank the following TBG officers for being there on Friday to help with set-up:
President - Lee Camp
Sec-Treas. - Jeff Hampton
Central Zone Rep - Dan Beckwith
Youth Coordinator - Tony Smith

These guys did a load of work to allow everyone else to ride in and have fun. They are tired at the end of the weekend and I'd bet all slept very well last night. I appreciate each one of them more than they'll ever know.

A group of dedicated TBG members volunteered to arrive with the aforementioned officers to help with set-up and/or provided help in moving things along all weekend. Chuck, Charlie, David, Donnie, Todd, Michelle, Rachel, Ethan, Richard, Charlie - I thank you!

Big Jim and Barbara Babcock arrived early Friday with their store. They set it up and ran it all weekend and provided much appreciated service to all. I thank them for their dedicated effort.

Potluck supper participants, you're some great cooks, or you know some great cooks, or you know where to buy good food! LOL! Thank you for your generosity in sharing with others!

I am proud to be a part of such a fine organization that is made up of some of the greatest people on the planet. Thank you all for what you did this weekend to help us grow!

One of the best TBG events I have seen in a long time and largely due to the great location and the hard work of all those that made it possible.

If we are able to retain this location I imagine a huge participation increase next year just from word of mouth about the facility, the fishing and the great course.

Thanks to all!

Gene summed things up well in his post above.

I want to thank all of you who came out and supported TBG this weekend. I also wanted to thank all those that pitched in helped us out as well as my fellow TBG officers. These guys put in a lot of hours on these shoots and they really make these events what they are.

We had an officer's meeting yesterday afternoon and started making plans for next year's shoot. Hopefully we have found a home for the State Shoot for many years to come there at the Rock Ranch. We discussed some ideas for making things better for next year as well as some new things we are going to try to implement. If you have any suggestions on ways we could improve or suggestions please drop an email to one of the TBG officers.

Looking forward to next year!

I also want to give a thanks to all who worked for months and months (Jeff since last years was over!)and each one who added helping hands and happy hearts over the weekend, to make this such a success for TBG. It is only as strong as the weakest of our club members.....looks like we are strong now!!!! :cool:
I believe our future has a wonderful course set now for years to come, looking forward to being able to attend it next year!!!:bounce:
