Introduction:

The Northern Illinois Winter Jack Rabbit Program has been going on for over 38 years.
The participating clubs compete for a traveling trophy.
This trophy is presented to the club that wins the most Sunday shoots.
Each participating club hosts two Program events at their club.
The team score is determined by taking the five highest club member’s scores shot on that day.
The highest team total wins that Sunday.

This is a great opportunity to join your other club members and visit some of the local clubs. Participating clubs in 2012 are:

  • Maywood Sportsmen's Club
  • Northbrook Sportsmen's Club
  • McHenry Sportsmen's Club
  • Saint Charles Sportsmen's Club

    Shooters must be members of the club they are shooting for and can only shoot for ONE CLUB PER YEAR.

    JACKRABBIT PROGRAM FORMAT

    50 targets are shot at each Program Event – 25 Singles and 25 Handicap
    (yardage based on Singles Score between 20 and 25 yards).
    The hosting club will squad shooters and act as Event Judges.
    If there are weather problems, the weekly hosting club will make a decision regarding the shoot.
    Cancelled shoots will not be made up.

    Cost for the Program each week is $20.00. This is distributed as follows: $9.00 to the hosting club; $6.00 to the Daily Lewis; $3.00 to the Team Lewis; $1.00 for High Gun; and $1.00 for the Carry Over Pot.

    The event starts at 10AM. Entries close at 12PM. The hosting club is to be open between 9:00 and 9:30 to allow sign-up and practice. Jack Rabbit participants are allowed to shoot at the host club's member rates on the day the Jack Rabbit is held.

    There is a club buy-in of $25.00 for each club payable on the first day the club hosts the Jackrabbit. This money is added to the Carry Over Pot/50 Straight Fund.

    DAILY LEWIS

    Every entry will play a Daily Lewis (no exceptions). This money will be paid out using a standard Lewis calculation for 3, 4 or 5 classes – One Money – Ties Divide. 40 or fewer shooters will use 4 classes. More than 40 shooters will use 5 classes.

    TEAM LEWIS

    Every entry will play a Team Lewis.

    This money will be paid out to the winning teams using a standard Lewis calculation for two classes – One Money – Ties Divide. Team score is determined by the total of the five highest scores for that club. The money should be placed in an envelope with the winning team name and a list of the team shooters with the five highest scores and ties. (Let the teams decide who gets paid.)
