You are not allowed to weed eat the grass this year K. Buy a mower for behind the UTV.

Well I was there on april 13 to 20th, but my truck spent most of the time in a ford dealership repair shop.
It got me home but still isn't right.

Since I am considered by many as the most epic and awesome guy, I will volunteer to help...and... I'll even bring some paint. Plus, as a bonus (drinking), you can use me as an excuse for hanging around the ranch (*cough* drinking) that day and making you miss all the fun activities (*BORING*) in town! Hey, and we could have a few drinks afterwards too...:cool1:

Hey! This year we're going to have a contest...... $5.00 buy-in for two chances at $50.00!

I see I haven't explained much on the thread this year, and I think I've been in PM contact with most who haven't been before, but:

-Range will be ready and can be open whenever the first shooters arrive.
-Steel targets at 5 ranges from 400 yds to 1050.
-Supper and refreshments supplied.
-Guns to go quiet by 5:00 PM, out of respect for good neighbor. (And besides, time to eat and drink then.)
-Camping over is welcome.

So far the weather is looking good. Did a little brushing and extended the line a little to the west.
Looking forward to old and new friends, and a good shoot!

This was the first year I finally managed to make it out. D&F....Jon and I can't thank you enough for putting this on. What a GREAT day !!!! I got my load development done, and got to visit with a ton of great people. We even got a little cannon shooting in there in between strings. I'll post up a few pics after my phone charges. I can't thank you enough guys. You're great folks !!!!

My first time out. Darrell and Fay are very gracious hosts. I am so envious that they live in Shangri-La. The weather was perfect, in fact too perfect. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The new mushroom patch!

With temperatures getting into the thirties, it was a bit hot. And the "fire department" deployment was interesting. I must say that every time I shoot with these guys, some kind of adventure happens. From stormy seas at the Poker Rally, to "fireworks" at the Fun Shoot.

Again to Darrell, Fay, and their family who did so much so a bunch of us Gunnies could enjoy a day out, a heart felt thank you. The supper was awesome! Hospitality was second to none!

Another awesome year at the Dmay fun shoot!

First I want to thank Darrell, Fay, and their incredible family that put this on for all of us....as usual an outstanding event abundant of fun, great friends and fantastic food......you are truly wonderful people that stand out as the salt of the Earth in my eyes !!!!!

I wish to also thank the fellow shooters, friends and comrades for the memorable day we all shared........without all of you the day would most certainly lack the fantastic memories built!!

To the fire crew(you know who you all are)......................outstanding teamwork and as stressful as that short time was.....there was a glint of fun in that too!!

I am a proud man to have so many good people and wonderful friends to share these days with and I cannot wait for the next "memory builder"!!!


p.s. Thank you for sharing the pics Andy(I forgot my camera at the door in our hasty departure!!)VA6SZ VA6MIA......73's!

Yep, was a good time. Thanks to everybody showing up to make it a great event, and to Brad and especially Tyson for all the help. And all the volunteer firefighters. Great pictures Andy.



Somebody is missing a rear bag, we believe it was left on the bench in the yard.

Darrell that bag is my buddy Tim`s .......he forgot it after the sight in session.....If you could hold on to it for me that would be great!!


Thanx again for the wonderful day!!!
