Just wanted to share for any friends interested! Hope everyone who wants to come can make it! The tournament will be at Horse Pens 40 in Steele, AL. There will be different distances of knockdowns, and a woods course.

Horse Pens 40
3525 County Road 42
Steele, Alabama 35987

It is a beautiful park with trails for hiking and awesome formations nationally known for bouldering.

One of my dear friends will be providing catering, and I am pretty sure the amazingness of the food will be enough to make people want to come back next year. If you are coming and want food please let me know so that they can figure you in for the head count so there is enough.

More details are on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/2018-...orse-Pens-40-1897923883811197/

For those of you wanting to get a hotel, Dan Ambrosius said that Attalla, Alabama is the town closest to the tournament with decent hotels

The SEST and the ECST are the two tournaments we have right now.... so if you can, it would be great to support them.

Most of the top shooters will be there.... but they're all casual though.... the competition is light and not to serious... you might get one or two who are there to try and "make a statement"... but for the most part, I'd say 95% or more of the people are like me, there simply to meet and greet... get together with friends and put faces and names to the person behind the avatar.

I know a pretty good amount about slingshots and such now.... but every time I go to one of these events I always seem to learn something new and really valuable.... and you will too!

I had hoped to make this tournament, but due to eye surgery and taking care of favorite Mother In Law, it’s just not going to happen. If you have never had the pleasure of attending a slingshot tournament, it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. Remember when you were a kid(young age) and you hated when you had to quit playing and go inside well this is worse yet Here is one word of advice you need to pay close attention to Don’t just stand there, walk up to someone and introduce yourself and Im betting it will be like you’ve known them forever

Looks like a fun event. Wish there was something similar out west.
Organizing is more effective than wishing!
Get some people together and do the thing. I'm sure you could start the process right here on this very forum.
Also: Have a great time at HP40, everybody! Sorry I have to miss it this year. Maybe next time :thumbsup:

I knew a comment like this was coming. Not interested in organizing an event. Good luck to anyone that does.
