Okay folks, after trying to sort out the very accommodating responses (“I can shoot most any weekend, let’s just shoot”), here is the proposal
Date – Saturday Sept 15th for the Dinner and Sunday Sept 16 for the shoot.
My thought on this is to give people time to drive in or over to the dinner on Saturday night without having to hurry after work. And there are a couple of people who can not make a Saturday shoot for various reasons.
Location – Restaurant to determined and The Redneck Engineer’s range.
There are many choices for restaurants in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Currently there is a TexMex place not far from Bunker BS that I would suggest — Campo Verde. Good food, decent prices, big enough that we can take over a section and not cause too much hardship.
The Redneck Engineer‘s (TRE) range has the slight edge due to fewer restrictions on the type of toys that can be used.
While there are tables available at the firing stations, given the number of arms at D.A.B. I; it will probably be a good idea to bring a couple of extra tables to stage things.
Meet up – At the same gas station we did before; Belt Line and I-45 – maybe 9 a.m.?
The range needs to be unlocked by the range member so everyone meeting up and then caravan to the super secret shooting location makes sense. If any body can’t make it at the planned meeting time, let myself or The Redneck Engineer know so we can exchange phone numbers. TRE is willing to open the gate to late arrivals.
Standard range rules apply: no alcohol before shooting or on range property, any trash needs to be cleaned up, rifles can be shot in the pistol bays just not at the steel targets, etc.
Sacrifice to the Range?
I forgot an integral part of any blog shoot
Do we have a volunteer to bring the victim?
What do you folks say? Can we start a list of possible attendees now with the full understanding that life is what happens while we are making plans?
I’m in and The Redneck Engineer of course (and possibly wife).
BAR board members, kx and Southern Belle — possibly youngest daughter also.
DanielS is in.
Nick the Blogless (when are you going to change that by the way?)
Paul from Texas
Scribbler and possibly others
