Howdy

 A while back I offered an invitation to  anyone that may be interested in coming to the state of Queensland to shoot at the Gold Coast Heartland Territorial hosted by the Gamblers.

Well Jackson Rose & his new bride Nana Rose will leave the USA this Wednesday &  with the time difference [ approx 16 hours ] arrive in Australia on Friday July 19 at 5.30 am.

A club shoot the next day will get Jackson straight into it & we hope to take them to Steve Irwins [ the Crocodile man ] Zoo as well as other places in our neck of the woods.

I'm hoping to post as much as I can  of their trip which is for 2 weeks.

Looking forward to there visit ................................

Jackson Rose has been shooting with us for years and a real asset to our matches.   Nana has jumped right in like she's been here all along.  We're always happy to see the Roses roll in. 

 

 

Nana's very first match!

 

It's going to be a great experience for all you guys.  I wish I could be there just to shoot video!

First update is  the internal connecting flight to LA is delayed so could be a later arrival into Australia.

You can find 'Gold Coast Gamblers' on facebook if interested.

So?  They are going to miss the match?  

 

I'd try to get a ticket refund and try again some other match.

From what I understand,  it was a thunderstorm in St. Louis that delayed their departure to Atlanta.  Or thunderstorms that delayed them getting to Atlanta.  In any case, they missed their connection out of Atlanta by 20 minutes.

Just got back from the shoot, I will post some more pics & try with the videos [ no guarantee there !!!].

Jackson was 1st in SG BP & also won the mens invitational shoot off. Nana didn't place but did well for having only been shooting a short time. she did win best dressed lady. Having to SDQ myself for not unloading my pistols didn't help !!

My lovely wife 'McGinty placed 2nd  in SS.

The next 2 days will be going to the Crocodile mans Zoo [ Steve Irwin ] & some sight seeing.
