Good day everyone
So I was talking with killer Kane this eve and we started to plan out a poker run precision shoot ! Now the poker run aspect comes into it when you ride your quad on a pre determined course to set shooting positions and engage targets at various distances out to and maybe more then 500 m.

The other side to this we want to work out for those that don't have a quad is a course you can drive your truck to and from! We are thinking of a two day shoot set in the area around drayton valley! We would camp out the night in between and everyone can sit and bullshit over a few wobbly pops and a fire after the shooting is done for the day!

So I am posting this up to gauge the interest from goc! Post up your thoughts on this

I would think so . We just have to find a good set of trails that will pose some challenges and I think it will make it a good one

That really sounds like fun. Wish I had a quad or a truck. Would a jeep work? I love the overnight idea.

Cheers!

We could use someone that knows their way around a chilli bowl and can do fantastic stuff with bacon!!!!! And yes a jeep would work. The truck portion would be limited to the main roads!

Sounds like fun! Only issue is no quad and no long range rifle.... Depending when this is I might have one of the two by then

The distance we are hoping for would be out to 500 with targets to match the distance!

That's definitely in the right direction. I'm interested though not in the ATV part, I'm too old for that!!! Not too old for wobble juice session though.

Ok so a little heads up to those that don't know what a poker rally/run is ! So what happens is we all are given a map that has a course plotted out on it . There is a number of stations you have to work your way towards , at the station you draw a card and this is where we will differ a little bit . You will shoot your card and the rso that will be present will record it for you. After the circuit you end up back at the beginning and the cards are tabulated and the best poker hand wins!

Now I want to add also that there will be a buy in fee and 50% of the total monies will be the winning prize! And maybe some swag from a couple sponsers if I can convince them to open the purse strings. I would think there should be enough room for up to 30 guys to run this one . Now I still have to head out and lay out the course for this , so the track won't be laid out till spring ! I have hunted his area for a number of years and will say that be prepared for some cool riding and good scenery . The riding is not gonna be the baja but there might be a couple spots that could be wet still !!

This sounds like so much fun. In spite of not being an experienced long range shooter, I'd love to try my hand, and learn a thing or two. If the dates match my days off, I'm in.

This is going to be great! Let me know if you need a hand with things.

When you say wet, are you suggesting that 4x4 will be required or 2 wheel should be ok?

stevesummit
12-10-2013, 09:14 PM
For the quads 4x4 would definitely be very helpful!!!! But for the trucks unless we get a huge down pour 2 wheel will work easily!! And I will take you up on a helping hand sir ! If k/k is able we were gonna meet up Friday night and start going over everything ! If you'd like to attend feel free ! I can text the meet up location to you !

Sounds like fun Steve. I'm sure I might find some sponsorship prizes.....could bring an extra quad too if needed. And of course, if you need anything.....

Sounds like alot of fun. I have neither quad nor long range rifle but I'm eyeballing the latter. Now I have my excuse. :D Probably be .223 though. I'm sure it can be pushed out to 500. Whether I can or not...well, that's another matter.

I have a truck so I'll do that portion.c
