Directions to the club.
If coming from west of Milwaukee, use I94E to Hwy "J" North and it will become Hwy 164 North. This is one exit west of Hwy 164 but if you miss it, just take Hwy 164 North (At American TV, look for big flag) and follow the signs and it will "jog" back to where Hwy J joins in. Follow Hwy 164 North for about 20 minutes to the intersection of Hwy 167, and turn left (West). Club on right, 3/4 mile.
If you are coming from Milwaukee, I suggest I94W to 45N. Exit 45N at "167W, Holy Hill", about 10 miles north of I94. The exit south of this is 167E which you do not want. Proceed west on 167W for about 4 miles.
After the second stop sign (cross Hwy 164)the Daniel Boone entrance will be on your right about 3/4 of a mile. There is a large sign for the club but it is carved and not very obvious to drivers.
On the club grounds you will cross a bridge, bear left to the main car park. The match will be on the 200m range which is to the right of the car park.
The club is for members only, but the Three Gun Action Steel Match is open to the public.

I would so be there is it weren't for the fact that the Wi IPSC Sectional is on the same day!
This match is a hoot - I'd encourage anyone to go check it out - and if you don't have 3 guns, ASK!
The Match Director (Joe), will hook you up no problemo.
Just to clarify. This is a FUN match. Don't let the fact that there are scores and awards discourage you. Everyone pretty much shoots whatever weapons they have and we all have a blast. I've yet to see someone walk off the line without a huge grin on their face! Hope to see some of you there. The next and final match of the year is on December 7th, 2003.
I better check out my stuff and make sure it's ready!!!!
Well, I went and shot the match today, my first ever. Should have taken the 20" w/scope for the 100 and 200m stages. Did the best on the 25m shotgun/buckshot stage, two handed pistol 50m stage, and the 75m shotgun/slugs stage. I shot a 16" A-1 with a red dot and it was the wrong choice for me for plates at 100 and 200m. Raining and hazy too. After my toys being gone for so long, I stunk.
Though my disorganization managed to irritate some of the shooters there (this was my very first match), the facility is very nice and the match director was very helpful. Special thanks to Brian H too for helping me out with ammo, loaning my guest some muffs, and helping me with the course of fire! I had a great time. Next one is Dec 7th. There is also a running deer/steel AR shoot next Sunday. If you go, be organized and prepared to have a good time.
