You don't look that well, I bet you may come down with something in May.  Just a guess but if you do, I bet some of us can write you a sick note for your boss.:ph34r:

Dan & I have discussed the idea of an 1860 Henry match within a match, which could be really cool (according to us). I know there's some safe queens out there that are being neglected! 

 

If you're man or woman enough, bring an 1860 Henry for your main match rifle! Throw down!  :D

Still working on the details on it.  It looks as if the dinner train is super expensive and requires a minimum of 40 folks to attend.  

 

But you can rent the train for the ride and bring food.  So leaning towards a Friday night social possibly... With snack type food?  Got an email out to the folks with some questions and just waiting for a reply.  I think it would be a hoot!  Get a picture of the whole group at the depot next to train all dressed up. Then get to spend some time on the train telling stories and shoot'n the breeze.

 

Will keep folks informed on what i find out.

we had a paddle steamer dinner and cruise on the Murray river in Australia back in 05 and it was great.

Sign up for The Siege At Clark's Station May 3rd - 5th, 2019, & Join The Butterfield Gulch Gang As We Offer You A Friday Evening Social Aboard A Train That Will Take Us From Abilene To Enterprise And Back!!  I Don't Know About You But This Sounds Like A Dang Good Time, And Your Not Going To Wanna Miss IT!  So Get Them Entry Forums In Quick To Help Us Finalize Planning. ( Please make a note on entry forum if you would like to attend the train ride and how many).

 

This Train Ride Social Gathering Will Leave Abilene Around 6p.m. on Friday the 3rd.  (Approximately 25 Minutes From The Butterfield Gulch Shooting Range).  Snacks/Drinks Will Be Provided, But Feel Free To Bring Some to Share If You Would Like (food is allowed on train).

 

Of Course 'Cowboy/Cowgirl' attire is encouraged. (Hope To Get A Photo Of The Group At The Old Train Depot, Before We Depart On The Trip) 

 

The train has three main cars, one dinning car with A/C (seats 56)... and two open cars with Canopy tops (seat 40 each).  Personally I think the open cars would be great in the cool evenings in May!

Sorry but No alcohol is allowed on the train. 

 

No Switching from one car to another while moving.  (You May Change Places In Enterprise before heading back to Abilene)
