I plan on coming!  It will be this greenhorn's first big match.  Shoot, might be my first ever match!  Hope you guys are as welcoming and accommodating as advertised.

A few years back Lady T and I got to tour the Winchester Hat Company in Winchester TN. This is the place where most of our hats start out. They make the blanks and ship them all over the country to the hat finishers. Anyway, if...and the is a big if at this time...would there be interest in some pards taking a tour of the facility on Wednesday if we can set it up?

I will not be able to talk to them until Monday sometime so I don't know if they still have tours but if you would be interested chime in so I might have an idea how many would be involved.

If no one wants to take the tour I plan to tour Jack Danial's on Wednesday anyway.

Let me know and I will post details if they develop.

Tombstone, I think the hat company tour would be great but I won't be able to make it. We'll still have too many T's to cross and i's to dot before the big day. We should have a Jack Daniels tour during the Side-Match Awards on Friday Night!:P

Randy, since you all live near I figure you have made the tour before. I was hoping for a few of our visitors that might want to come in a day early and have something to do

 

Counting the days til Wartrace.

I've only done the Jack Daniels tour once and never made it  the Hat factory but I think they would both be really good tours. I wish I could go but just too much going on.

 

It's getting here fast and the rush begins to get everything finalized.

I hear you Randy, the hat factory is amazing. It is the machines from the 30's or so and they still use them. I saw about 30 100X beaver hats floating in a big vat of water. You never would have thought that was the last thing they do to them before they get marked for shipping.

It sure made me wonder why my hats were not more expensive. Each one gets handled a few hundred times during the process.

 

25 days and counting.

Drifter,

That is a very thoughtful award.

 

And don't forget to bring your favorite .22 lever/pump rifle for the side match speed rimfire event.

And of course, there will be the raffle for a real nice, new Widder Soft Stroke Henry .22,   the 'Golden Boy SILVER' model.

If Lady T is in the same vending spot as last year, please save me the ditch right next to her like last year.

That was fun!:lol:
