WE NEED HELP!!!
Everyone in the shooting sports talks about getting the youth of America involved with
shooting.  How important it is to keep developing shooters.  Well we have a group
of interested adults coaching teams of interested youth, and we're in Illinois.
Those of you in Illinois know what we are up against, and those of you not in Illinois
have no idea how difficult it is to fight the negative view of the shooting sports that we
face all of the time.
We need your help.

The ground for the range has been donated to CIPS.

The plans have been drawn and initial fund raising is completed.

THE BUILDING WILL BEGIN SPRING OF 2010, AND THE AIR GUN RANGE SHOULD BE
USEABLE BY AUGUST, 2010.

However, that last push in needed funding is necessary to make the range useable for
small bore pistol and rifle.

There are 60 to 65 MILLION gun owners, and 4.3 MILLION NRA members, involved with
the shooting sports, and working to encourage young shooters.  If even some of the
shooters that  talk about encouraging junior shooters could send a few dollars
then Illinois could have a great resource to continue what we have started.

We could use YOUR help!

We are registered with the IRS as a 501(3)(c): and all donations are tax deductible.
Any support you could donate would help in putting together a facility and program to grow
more youth shooters.
Any gift check mailed to CIPS at the address below will be replied with a letter certifying
your charitable gift.

Yes, we know there are many organizations trying to get your dollars: we all receive so
many requests daily.
But, how many times do you get to help the shooting sports, and programs that you can
see on this web page.  We need just a little help from shooters who really enjoy,
and want to keep competitive shooting alive in our nation.

There are a lot of us in Illinois putting a lot of time and effort into CIPS.
We are going to build a new facility to bring young shooters and their families
into a sport many of us love and enjoy.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.

If you can help in any amount, send a check and return address to:

Central Illinois Precision Shooting
9151 Polaris Dr.
Bloomington, Illinois    61704

We will return a gift receipt.
