Howdy all,  Here is some information about the activities for the shoot.

 

Side matches are from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm

Long range starts at 9:00 am

 

Train ride Friday night, please be at the depot by 5:30 pm the train leaves at 6:00 pm.  Directions to the depot will be in the shooter packet.

 

Banquet Saturday night at the Elks,  social hour starts at 6:00 ish  and eating at 7:00 ish. We will be doing side match awards after eating.

 

 

Now the important stuff,, The directions to the range are Take Rain road South out of Chapman to 2200 ave. which is about 3 ½ miles, turn East and go 1 mile to Sage road then turn and go North about an 1/8 mile range entrance is on west side of the road. There are cowboy signs every mile in the west ditch pointing the way to the range.

 

As of today we have had almost 3 inches of rain even though 2200 ave is a good rock road it is soft, I recommend ya’ll bypass 2200 ave and continue south 1 more mile to 2100 ave turn there go east to Sage road turn left and come North to the range. It is a better road.

 

That being said since we are in a pasture and with all this moisture the parking in the pasture will be soft. We did just put several tons of rock on the lane leading to the range. Those that are bringing a camper to the range keep in mind that we have had quite a bit of moisture.

 

Saturday since we are shooting 6 stages we will break for lunch then finish the rest of the stages. On Sunday we will shoot all 4 stages then do lunch so we can make sure all scores are correct.

WOW what a stock! Mine doesn't look anything like that. I've never shot anything but blanks out of it so far during some reinactments. I've purchased everything to load 44-40 so I will eventually get to shoot real lead out of it.

That gun is beautiful.. Came across the picture and had to share.  I really like the 44-40 cartridge, found a great load using Trail Boss.

I left right after the match and got home last night at 8:30 so it took me right at 7 hours with only two stops on the way. Believe you said y'all were going stay over and leave Monday.

 

Travel safe my friend, great to meet you, too bad we were not on the same posse. Maybe we will get to shoot together some time in the future.

Yes left this morning at 7. Made it a little over 700 miles today. Should be a easy drive home tomorrow. About 350 miles to go. 

It would be great to shoot with you Scout. I will try to make that happen.
