John Hoffman

In this episode of "What's Happening QC," we hear John Hoffman, the President of the Milan Chamber of Commerce. The main focus of the episode is the chamber's first annual sporting clays tournament, which will be held on Friday, May 17th at the Bi-State Sportsman Association in Colona.

John explains that the sporting clays tournament will consist of 100 rounds of sporting clays, a game similar to golf but using shotguns instead. The proceeds from the event will be used to support local charities and make updates to the chamber's website and other processes.

To sign up for the tournament, individuals can contact the chamber directly, get in touch with John personally, or visit the chamber office located inside the IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union building in Milan.

During the interview, John shares his personal passion for sporting clays, describing it as a challenging yet relaxing activity that allows him to compete against himself and enjoy the great outdoors. He also recounts a recent outing with some of his employees, all of whom had varying levels of experience but had a great time.

John also discusses his business, Pagalos Pizzeria and Gelato Cafe, which he has owned for 27 years. He emphasizes the strong sense of community and loyalty they have built with their customers over the years.

The interview also touches on the town of Milan and its potential for growth. John highlights its proximity to the Quad Cities area, accessibility to the airport, and new developments and businesses that have been well-supported by the Milan community.

Lastly, John gives shout-outs to several local businesses that are sponsoring the sporting clays tournament, including XPac, B&B Hardware, Bush Sports Turf, Dark Night Outdoors, Hutchison Engineering, and IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union.

Overall, this interview offers a detailed insight into the Milan Chamber of Commerce, the upcoming sporting clays tournament, the thriving business community in Milan, and the strong sense of community and support within the Quad Cities region.
