Okay, it's actually getting somewhat close to crunch time now. I looked at the schedule for when Mrs. G. has to work, and have narrowed the potential dates down to two days. We also have a tentative list of attendees started, so let's pick the date and get things squared away. I'm waiting to hear from doubletrouble about when I can come out to help him rebuild the backstop (ahem...*g*), but I'm thinking sometime in the next couple of months we should have things squared away. Original post here.
Onto the specifics...
Date: Since I'd like Paul from Stateline Gun Shop to be able to make an appearance (maybe even with some of his wonderful toys), I'd prefer to have the shoot on a Sunday (I can also take Monday off to clean everything...). Mrs. G. is off the weekend of July 24/25 and July 31/August 1st, so let's choose between Sunday, July 25th and Sunday, August 1st.
Time: We historically start at 10:00 AM and wind up around or before 5 PM, although I have a feeling if we were to put away the guns, coat ourselves in serious bug spray, and break out a few frosty malt beverages there wouldn't be much complaining... ;)
Location: Doubletrouble's sooper seekrit range, the location of which is highly classified.
JD & sprog
ZerCool & possibly Mrs. ZerCool
Mr & Mrs. Mopar
That's twelve definites (not counting our host and your humble scribe) and two possibles. There's still room for more, but slots are filling up quick!
Miscellaneous: As with last year, this is a "pack-in, pack-out" shoot - if you want to bring a 1968 International Harvester to shoot the hell out of, go right ahead. Just be prepared to drag the bullet-riddled carcass out with you. Also, our group really is getting too big to order lunch, so I would recommend bringing lunch with you this year. Calling the sandwich shop for two dozen subs was a little much last year...
Okay folks, let's pick a date and start deciding on what toys to bring!
That is all.
