EOT 2022 From My Saddle

I got into Arizona last night and spent the night in a little town called Wittman. A local pard and his wife were gracious enough to put me up for a couple of nights until I can get into my permanent place tomorrow.

 

This morning I went up to the Ben Avery shooting range the home of EOT. I assisted Rattlesnake Slim and his crew in assembling a whole bunch of gun carts that we’ll rent for the match, kind of like a jig saw/erector/Lego set combined.

 

Here are some pictures of the stages, still some work being done but come Monday it’ll be ready. They’re putting some finishing touches on the big tent and a few vendors are moving in. I think they’ve done a tremendous job putting this EOT together, they should all be very proud.

Just curious. How many of these stages are permanent?

None , they have to assemble/ disassemble them every year.

Rex :blush:                           OOPS , wrong again.

 Edit:   I should have kept my mouth shut. I was thinking that Ben Avery had them tear down after every Winter Range shoot.

Things change.

Wild Bunch Monday dawns cold and windy. The gun cart corral is where I’ll be spending a lot of my time.

A few views from the cart corral towards the main tent. WB safety meeting about to start. Look at those flags, the wind has them straight out.

My assistant Minnesota Clay. He started coming to EOTs to Waddie in 2007, the same year that I did.

This buffalo jacket felt pretty good this morning but it’s about time to take it off.

Phoenix is in a valley and is warmer than the snow covered north.  So it is fairly normal for a morning wind to come down the canyon at Ben Avery.  After it warms up a bit the wind dies down, usually around 10:00 am.  Here is a shot of WR/EOT from the air a few years ago.  It is supposed to be in the 80's Monday through Thursday and then cool off a bit Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Looks like perfect shooting weather.  (At least for us desert rats.  I am shivering if it is below 70.:ph34r:)
