Our new set of targets;
TNGirl, aka Tomi, thru her persistance, politeness, and want to do good things for TBG, has arranged for our club to be able to
purchase one set of the targets that will be used this weekend in Clakesville, at the IBO World Championship.
These targets are available to us for about 30 cents on the dollar.
20, Super McKenzies, shot only one tournement, and from only one side.
We will be able to fill out our Youth Trailer with quality targets, and round out our set to be used for our Shoots next Year.

RogerB, and Necedah Dave, have graciously offered to haul these targets back to Georgia this Sunday afternoon.

Thank you! :cool:

(20 of these will be coming to Georgia this weekend).


Sounds good.

I'm still waiting for my membership packet, news letter, decocoder ring or what ever it is I am supposed to get after I joined back in May at the Coot's shoot. :whip:
Looking forward....and it's close to my house!!! And, Tony is bringing the youth trailer to Eagles Landing 1st Baptist Church this Saturday for our first "Archery Day" for our youth! Looking forward to both events!

That's a great idea!!! No overhead and a lot less work to get things set up. I put it on my calendar and we plan to be there.

Senior Member

Yes it is.

Don't let this date slip by, folks. This is gonna be a great event.

The targets mentioned above and now in TBG possession, more or less. They are safe and resting comfortably in a trailer in Lawrenceville, GA for now. They look great. I have personally touched every one of them in the loading process and they are fine! I look forward to our first opportunity to shoot at them.


Senior Member
Great prizes listed on the new thread!:yeah:
The raffle tickets will be on sale at the dinner I'm guessing?
I'm planning to pick some up.
Should be a good evening.


Senior Member
Gonna miss this one. Hope it's a great turn out.
