    We have revised the artwork for the back of the t-shirt to better represent the feel of the meet. For those that haven't attended before, check out some of the previous years events in the threads below.

    I was thinking of adding a little something new to the range this year to keep it interesting. So, with that in mind, would anyone be interested in doing a pistol drill from our High Threat Vehicle Engagement Course?

    These pictures were taken yesterday, when it was 93 degrees! It’s 41 now as I write this, we dropped 5o degrees in 12 hours.
    As you can seee, we let nature take over camp in the spring and summmer. I think it’s time to take it back and breath a little life into this place.

    Well due to work taking so long to get back to me and take me off the schedule the airfare went up over double what I would have paid. So I will not be attending the meet this year.

    Big thanks go out to @Donkey78 for working in the rain to clear out some of the down branches and nettles in camp. Weatherman says we could get 2-3 inches of rain in the next couple days.

    Glad to help out. Don’t like the thought of our friends driving/flying for hours, and arriving to do the work I can do.

    If you guys (88) ever need help, I live 30 min from camp, just ask I’m willing and able.

    Forecast for this weekend:
    Screenshot_20181008-104534.png

    The weather has been pretty crazy the last couple of weeks, and the weathermen have been doing a pretty poor job of predicting accurately, so take this into consideration.

    Winner's Grill on Thursday night

    If you are going to be around on Thursday and plan on going to Winner's Grill for burgers with the group, please like this post. Because they have limited staff, they would like to know how many are coming.

    If you wont be there, please ignore this post.

    The river here won't crest until Sunday. I'm just hoping I don't have to move my possesions out and evacuate.

    They just revised the forecast down by a foot, so things are going in the right direction.

    @Kurt992 I’m trying to figure out what all to bring. How much range time do you anticipate? Just Pistols or rifles too?

    We will have time to do both. I’m thinking that we can head to the long range Friday morning before there are too many campers in the woods. We can ring a little steel out to 420 yards. When we have open range on Saturday, both the pistol and rifle bay will be open.

    I'm going to have to miss the event this year, which is real bummer. My to-do list is boiling over and I will be way too behind if I'm gone for 4 days. I hope you all have an amazing time out there!
