Time to start planning the Minnesota traditional Archery Rendezvous.  It will be Aug. 12, 13, 14th.  Friday noon til Sunday noon.

Spread the word that since the other site is down we will do the planning here.

Let me know if you can do a meal or plan/run an activity.  Last year we did speed shoot, sling shot tournament, skunk pin and pistol shooting.  Not sure yet if we will have the pop up targets again.  We could do a judo/ jug shoot where we set up a course with milk jugs and shoot them with judos.  Kind of like a 3d shoot but easier/cheaper.  We would all need to bring jugs.

Katie and I will run the coffee in the mornings and bring breads to go with it.

I can run the slingshot tournament, I know where to find the trophy eh Chad?

Not much activity here, I hope the regulars figured out where to look.

I plan on being there. Unable to commit to cooking a meal at this point though. May be staying at a Hotel though as on-going back issues may prevent me setting up my portable hotel.

Chad, I think I have Mike's phone # somewhere if you haven't heard from him. I can send him a text and let him know the dates.

I can do the speed shoot again. Brady is in San Diego at boot camp so it will be just me this year. I can do any meal so I'll see what is left. I picked up a 1911 for pistol shoot.

Yeah, if any of you have emails for the regulars we should send them a note to come here for information. I've posted on our MTAR facebook page and that catches a couple of them like JJ and Karl. This will be a grass roots effort!

There's an MTAR Facebook page?   I only I could remember my Facebook login info, it's only been about 10 years since I last logged into it.

I'm up for that!!
When the last deer disappears into the morning mist,
When the last elk vanishes from the hills,
When the last buffalo falls on the plains,
I will hunt mice for I am a hunter and I must have my freedom.

Man it's slower over here that it was on the other site.
I just sent Mike a text with details, hopefully he recognized who I was.  Don't have contact information for anyone else though.
Looks like we might be ordering a lot of Pizza and  Chinese take-out this year.

Deed is coming.

Chad, I got an "invalid email" back when I sent a message to Joe, you may want to contact him?

Joe Jewett isn't going to make it this year due to a family trip.

Just a heads up.  The skeeters are horrible.  I'm having the mosquito squad come and spray on Tuesday.  If I don't see a big improvement, we may have to move the event to Jeremy's place.  (About 7 miles away).  If we do change the location, then I will post directions here.  I'll make a decision Wednesday or Thursday.  Chad

They sprayed yesterday morning and we didn't have a mosquito the rest of the day.  We will have it here as usual.  Bring thermo cells and spray, just in case.

Sounds good, we've been camping in hayward since Saturday so we're getting hardened to the camping life. By the time we get packed up tomorrow Morning and on the road im guessing we won't get to your place till after noon.

It breaks my heart to miss it this year.
It won't happen again.
When the last deer disappears into the morning mist,
When the last elk vanishes from the hills,
When the last buffalo falls on the plains,
I will hunt mice for I am a hunter and I must have my freedom.
