There is a huge dry camping area, with NO camping fees.  For those shooting the Gulch you are welcome to come and camp the days before.  The Gulch is about an hour away and carpooling would be helpful.  Well water (non-potable) maybe available.

Ed, you don't let us know what the Doughboy and Teddy Roosevelt is in the Wild Bunch.  I'm clueless about the Tom Horn and Bounty Hunter reference in BP as well.

Twelve Mile Reb, In a nut shell:

 

Doughboy substitutes the pistol caliber rifle for an original caliber bolt action rifle issued by any country to its military forces through the end of WWII.

 

Teddy Roosevelt substitutes a rifle caliber lever or pump action rifle manufactured before the end of WWI.

 

See pages 21 and 22 of the SASS WB Range Operations/Match Directors Handbook.

Twelve Mile

Who knows. If you come down over to Fernley in June, perhaps, just perhaps and the Good Lord is willing, I will be well enough to see if I can out match you once aagain.
