It's that time of the year to plan for our gathering.  It will be at my place again the second full weekend in August.  (10th, 11th, 12th)
All are welcome to come and camp.  It starts about noon on Friday and goes until Sunday afternoon.  We do shooting games, sling shots, Aerial targets, outdoor cooking, archery projects, long distance shooting, pistol shooting and just hanging out.

Let me know if your planning to come so we can plan meals.

Saturday morning coffee and snacks. Amy
Saturday noon meal. Tod and skunkman (sloppy joes)
Saturday evening meal. Chad and Shane

Chad, I mentioned last year about blasting some clay pigeons with shotguns.   Is that something that is do-able and are others interested in that?

Sounds good Tod.  I may need you for Sat supper, we will see.   Greg we can’t do that here but if you want, we could drive to the sporting clays course at Rice Creek.  It is really nice.

It's just a thought.   Probably take too much time away from other activities though.

I've been to Rice Creek a couple times, just for the Gun Fair in the spring.  Spent lots of money there this year.

WOW, Tradgang finally let me make an account!

As always, looking forward to this! Really looking forward to being able to stay the whole weekend this year. I have a meat, potato, salad and dessert planned for the Friday evening meal.

Okay, since no one else has volunteered for Saturdays lunch it looks like it's up to me.  I hope you all like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

I will probably make something in advance to heat up when I get there, pulled pork for sandwiches or maybe homemade sloppy joes?  I'll think about it.  I may need to borrow a propane tank from someone to boil some water as mine has disappeared again.

People are missing from the list, Dan and family, Mike, Karl....

Thanks Greg.  We will plan on having you make something for lunch, Saturday.   I may have a local friend coming to make something for Saturday night, but I don’t know.  Things as far as meals are subject to change for now.

Dan and family cannot make it  Mike doesn’t think he can either.   Karl lives in Illinois now so he probably won’t make it.  Kinda sad.

I just ordered one of these.  I'll bring it along.   For Rimfire rifles and handguns only though.   A second one would be nice for some speed round competition.

They're dropping like flies it seems.  List of attendies gets shorter by the day. 

Chad, have you got a sanding drum that can be used for sanding the edges of a leather knife sheath or should I scrounge something up.

It was a good time.  Thanks to all who attended.  Next year’s event will be the weekend of Aug. 17th.   I think moving it a week later will work better for most attendees.
Congrats to John Devoe for winning the famed slingshot tournament.

Better late than never.  Great time, thanks again to Chad and Amy for putting up with us.

Hopefully the new date doesn't interfere with the Family reunion my cousins have decided to start having after 35+ years of not seeing each other.

OK, I just finished my new slingshot for next years MTAR slingshot competition.  What do you think.
