Winter Range Workings UPDATED 12-15

Recommended Posts

What did you do Sunday? Went leaf-peeping? Maybe shoveled the first snowfall of the year? Well 21 dedicated cowboys and cowgirls gathered at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility to celebrate the cool (90*) weather with the first work party of the year!

Can we ever have enough boardwalk? It seems like no matter how much we build, somebody is needing more. Maybe if we build enough it will never rain again.

This year's train theme has us rounding up every available piece of track and building even more.

The train track refurbishing crew gets busy.

 

The next work party is scheduled for Saturday, November 2nd. Stop by if you're in the area, we'd love to meet ya.

"Leaf peeping" is going out and enjoying the autumn as the leaves on the trees change colors. It's just starting here in the Arizona Territory and probably well underway further East. Barb and I are going out in a couple of weeks to view the fall foliage up Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona.

Even our esteemed Match Director and 2019 SASS Hall of Fame inductee Blackjack Zac gets into the action wielding a saber saw almost as fast as he does his six-guns.

I guess we get "Needle Peeping". The tamaracks get yellow and then lose their needles. :rolleyes:
