I'll help Tod with the Friday evening meal.  I'll make some Mac & Cheese in the Smoker.

Thanks for the meal volunteers.  I think we can use some help yet for both of the  evening meals.  Chad

I will have the smoker so I can put something in for Saturday night if needed.

Hey Tod, what are you thinking of cooking on Friday evening?    I'll have the Mac & Cheese, could also bring veggies for a Salad as well.

Well things will be a bit different for the little family this year. A couple weeks ago my father in law had a heart attack, he is doing well but recovering. What does this have to do with MTAR? My wifes family always has a family reunion camping trip the same week as MTAR, typically we've duck out early or late and gone to all of MTAR. this year we'll be staying a the camp the whole time to help out my father in law. Me and the boys are still planning on getting to MTAR but it won't be until Saturday afternoon. Katie will be going back with her parents to help unload and stuff.

Long story short: Me and the boys will be there for Saturday afternoon meal and Sunday morning.

Just don't start the slingshot tourney without me! And someone else will have to run the morning coffee.

Snort, I will do the meat.  I'm not sure what it will be yet.
Gopher, I will bring along a forked stick if you can bring me some bands.

I texted Mikey "Guitar Man" over the weekend and he said he will be coming as well.

Post by: Holm-Made on July 19, 2017, 08:57:00 PM
Sorry to hear that, Dan.  

I have some mesquite wood for cooking if anybody wants to use it.

It's right around the corner.  Looking forward to it.

I wish I could be there. It's killing me not to.
Last year at this time I was moving and bringing an end to a nightmare. That took four months.
Then, this March my shoulder went to hell. Three months I only had one arm and finally got surgery on 2 May.
I'm still only at about 30% strength in my right arm, but at least I am no longer in pain and have full mobility and range of motion. It hasn't been easy.
Not being able to shoot my bow is the deciding factor on coming.  
I was really getting zoned-in with my sling shot so a couple of you top-tier sling shot shooters can consider yourself lucky this year.
But - I'll be on board next year.
Please post some pictures and maybe even a few short videos on Instagram!!

Well get better Karl.  We will get some Picts for you.  Chad

Sorry to hear about your Father-in-law Dan. Glad to hear he is doing well.  
Do we need to find a large coffee brewing machine since Dan and Julie (aka Katie) won't be there on Friday.

Well, I'm sad to say that the logistics of making this years MTAR are not looking good for the little family. Other than the very first year, this will be the only other one that I've missed and I don't like the prospect of it. I'm pretty bummed, but the reasons are well worth it. The boys and I have been trying to do some flintknapping too, so we were looking forward to turning big rocks into little rocks, not to mention defending my slingshot title! I'll send the slingshot trophy up to chads next week. Take lots of pictures guys!

Bummer Dan.  It will be different not having you.  Shane was over yesterday and said "you should take out this spruce tree."  I said, " I can't that is where Dan sits under it and works on his  Bows".  You guys will be missed.  Chad

If I've missed anyone on the roll call, it is not intentional and doesn't mean your not welcome.  I may have forgot someone or just haven't talk to them yet.  My apologies.  Chad
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: The Gopher on August 01, 2017, 08:49:00 AM
well, I'm certainly going to miss being there, one of my favorite weekends of the year by far!
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Bucksnort101 on August 02, 2017, 02:18:00 PM
Chad, I'll ask once again. Since Dan and family will not be making it do we need to track down a large coffee maker for the mornings.  If so I can ask around for one I can borrow.

P.S. if you missed it, Mike from Rochester will be coming with his guitar.  Add him to the list so people can plan on how much food to bring.

Are there really two people named Deed coming to the gathering?
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Holm-Made on August 02, 2017, 08:38:00 PM
Greg, f you can find a coffee maker please bring it.  Otherwise Amy said she can make a couple pots in our maker and fill our two thermoses in the mornings.  Even if you or someone else can bring a standard coffee maker and two thermoses and make a couple pots,  that should be enough.  Chad
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Bucksnort101 on August 03, 2017, 09:39:00 AM
I'll check around and see what I can scrounge up.
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Bucksnort101 on August 04, 2017, 08:41:00 AM
No luck with the large coffee maker.

I'll bring a Loaf of Banana Bread for Sunday morning Coffee.

Less then a week away now.  Looking forward to it.  Reminder, cost is 40.00 and that includes all food.  If you are bringing/preparing food keep track of your expenses so I can reimburse you.  Thanks,  Chad

I'm thinking we could shoot ARs in the gravel pit instead of handguns.  I have some tracer rounds from Matt that we could shoot Friday night when the light gets low.  Matt and Jacob have ARs.  Tod, how about you.  JJ?   Anybody else have one?
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Bucksnort101 on August 07, 2017, 11:21:00 AM
I'll bring mine, but I'm not putting tracers down the barrel.

Have gun will travel.

It would be cool to get a few short videos of the tracers!

Karl/Dan, I hate to rub salt on the wound, but you missed one of the best weekends yet.
AR shoot, arials, skunk pin, speed shoot and intense sling shot shootout.
Also great food of course!
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Holm-Made on August 15, 2017, 02:06:00 AM
Great weekend.  Everything went well, as usual.  Jacob is still rubbing it in that he won the sling shot tournament.
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: The Gopher on August 18, 2017, 02:20:00 PM
That's not helping Tod!

I'm taking the slingshot trophy to the post office today, tell Jacob to clear some wall space for it!

I knew I should have been there.
Ya'll better be ready for me next year.
You're gonna call me "Laser Karl...."

The sling shot traveling trophy has come home.  It now resides above the work bench again.  This time it has Jacob's name on it.

I think I've finally recovered!    Great time as usually, well, for the part I was up and around for anyway.

How about next year we bring shotguns and do a clay pigeon shoot.  I'm sure I can borrow my buddy's pigeon thrower.
Not sure if that is do-able in the sand pit or not?
Title: Re: MTAR meals and roll call
Post by: Holm-Made on August 30, 2017, 11:23:00 PM
Probably not in the sand pit but we could drive to the sporting clays place south of here a few miles.
