Default Pheasant Fest Schaumburg Ill

This weekend at the Schaumburg Convention Center , over 30,000 expected.
We will be there on the second floor with an exhibition of 40-50 Parkers . The Lefever Arms Collectors will be next to us. Lots of dogs, guns, outdoor stuff, resorts, hunt clubs, etc.

Its the first time in Illinois. Usually mayors , governors, senators and various politicians come to see and be seen.

If any Illinois Politicians are going to visit the booth be I would suggest you have extra security. I believe the 2 of 3 previous governors are making license plates in the state penitentiary system joining several state congressmen and local officials.
Being born and raised in central Illinois it is embarrassing to observe and read about the sad state of affairs the politicians have placed the state.

We have many Illinois refugees at the Lake of the Ozarks. We even have some California refugees. We believe in diversity.

The local high school has a trap shoot in its parking lot. But I understand that young people in the Chicago area have no opportunity to shoot guns.

From the news reports this past summer, it sounded like Chicago's youth (south side??) had way too much opportunity, though I have a hunch their barrels weren't stamped "Parker Brothers."
