Would you like to come to Australia

Recommended Posts

Howdy

              Been lucky in the past to have done a few trips to the USA..the hospitality is second to none & always have a great time. My wife  & would like to extend an invitation to those [ 2 ] that might be interested in coming down under for a look see & participate in the Gold Coast Heartland Territorial  held in the last week of July on the sunny Gold Coast in the state of Queensland. We will pick you up & take you back to the airport, we have a big house [ attached photo ] with your own bedroom & bathroom & supply you with guns [ .38, .44, 44-40, 45, smokeless or BP  ] just bring your own leather.   It could be this year or further down the track, your choice.

I won't go into detail now but that's basically  the nitty gritty  of our offer. The shoot IMHO is the best in Australia..has  plenty to offer with 12 stages & numerous side events  &  up close targets.You get here & we will take care of the rest at no charge.Also have ROA's available, all guns are 'slicked up & shoot well .

I was upstairs on a 747.

The trip could have been shorter if you did not up stairs....Closer to the ground shorter the trip...

Airfares can vary but usually not buy much, typically a return price from Brisbane [ capital of Queensland ] to LA is  around  $ 1200 AU..but I have seen $ 990. [ So I would imagine from your end there would not be much difference ].if someone was to take up our offer then approx 2 weeks would be ample to do some sightseeing as well as the shoot, we live 80 mile from the range. July is our winter but never freezing cold so you can look forward to pleasant weather [ most times !!!! ]

If any one has any questions please feel free to ask. The shoot is normally   120- 140 shooters, the Gold Coast  is a very popular location with plenty of attractions.

That is almost too good to pass up. I almost got to go to Adelaide 30 years ago.  Thinking hard now...

I've thought of going back down under for years.  My sister and BIL have a place in the Barossa valley.  I spent some time in Brisbane and Sydney working with customers but unfortunately, that has dried up.  I don't know how I could ever reciprocate on this kind of offer.  Very tempting though.

Not this year but I’ll work on her for 2020. Great idea, by the way and thanks for the invite.

That is about as generous an offer as I think I've seen. If the opportunity arises, I would love to take the trip.
