    Okay y'all, we are doing it again! We will be hosting the 2017 88 Tactical Bushcraft Meet at our Tekamah location November 3-5. This year we will be offering a Carbine class the Thursday before (Nov 2nd) and may possibly offer an additional class Friday if there is enough interest. We were thinking about a Level 2 Handgun to follow up on last year's Thursday class.

    Please check in on this thread for additional information as time moves forward. Kurt will be posting the sign-up on the 88 Tactical website and one of us will post a link here as well.

    I should have this event added to the 88 Tactical training calendar in the next few days.

    This year's format will resemble the 2015 format. Activities will include:
    • Open Range
    • Tactical 10/22 fun shoot
    • Group Project - Parachute Shelter
    • Dutch Oven and Milk Can cooking
    • Trade Blanket
    Additional activities will be added as we work them out.

    The cost this year will be $50.00

    So happy to hear you will be making the trip. Looking forward to seeing you, buddy. Maybe we'll have to come up with another camp group project! You're expertise and guidance was a life saver last year!

    Oh! BTW, we have some carbines and handguns that belong to 88 Tactical that could be had by anyone who is coming in from out of town. Not sure if we could by-pass the rental fee or not. I'll have to let Kurt chime in on that. Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year.

    I'm currently planning to attend, but it will depend on the money situation. My wife recently lost her job, so things are a bit tight around the Penhall household at the moment. Fortunately, Austin is a great place to find work, so my hope is that this will be a very temporary situation for her.

    Looking forward to it!

    Regardless if you make it or not, I hope the job search goes well, but I hope it works out.

    Looking forward to seeing you again!

    And warned we are. Not sure if there is enough Sports Drank to go around if both you and Mr. Black come.....hahaha! Seriously, it'll be good to have you there this year.

    I have the Bushcraft Meet up on the training calendar. Follow the link and then scroll to Friday November 3rd:

    https://88tactical.com/trainingschedule/

    We haven't built a page for it on the web site yet, so here is the course description:

    88 Tacticals 2017 Bushcraft meet is an opportunity to get out in the woods of our 160 acre Tekamah Facility and enjoy camping in the late fall weather.

    This year's format will resemble the 2015 format. Activities will include:

    - Open Range
    - Tactical 10/22 fun shoot
    - Group Project - Parachute Shelter
    - Dutch Oven and Milk Can cooking
    - Trade Blanket
    - Tomahawk Throwing

    Additional activities will be added as we work them out. And as always, there will be impromptu lessons on a variety of topics and an opportunity to learn from like minded people while enjoying 2 nights out in the woods.

    As an added bonus, 88 Tactical is offering a $50.00 discount on Carbine Level I scheduled for Thursday 2 November 2017. If you have an AR-15, or are considering a purchase, this class will cover the fundamental skills needed to operate it effectively. Our carbine program focuses on using the rifle for personal protection. (Discount code will be in the confirmation email upon paid registration).

    We will be sleeping in the outdoors, so attendees need to be self-sufficient and bring everything they need for food, shelter, and clothing. Attendees may arrive and depart at anytime during the weekend. Activities start Friday evening to allow those coming from work a chance to participate.


    $50/Person

    Age requirement - 18 years and older unless accompanied by an adult.

    Last time we had a garage sale, your leftover gear netted us enough to build three extra cabins and a second bunker.

    I hope it can work out, John. It would be good to see you again, but I understand if not. Take care.

    Yay, SCHNAPPS! Good to here, Jeff. Everyone bring a one pint mason jar for Jeff.

    I agree. That would reduce sports drink consumption.
