I've got 3 weeks of vacation in Ontario planned and a once in a lifetime boat trip going on while I'm there. I'm going to try and schedule it so I can make it. Again, thanks for running this for us every year D. You're the salt of the earth.

Okay, we'll try to avoid that. Except maybe in the firepit after supper.

BSD.....I'm gonna be politically injured if you miss the event for a journey to Liberal-Land! Hahaha.....good one eh???

I'm going to make every effort to be there bud. The trip east is to go through the Trent-Severn waterway with my dad. The whole family is from the area, and he's always wanted to travel it from end to end (6ish day trip each way) and back, but never has. He's 75 now, and has decided that this summer is it. I'm an only child, so I don't have much choice in the matter on this one. LOL. I've always wanted to do it too to be honest, and he's got himself a pretty nice 22 ft boat with a cuddy cabin on it now. I'm going to see if I can get my vacation time scheduled outside of the 5th, but there's 4 other guys still above me. One will take his in the fall to go bow hunting. The rest are pretty flexible. It shouldn't be a problem.

I should be good either way. The family should be back east visiting family, so I should be free. We'd better firm up a date soon though. I'm organizing a big bore pistol shoot in August at Genesee and have to book the range around some other events.

Hey Darrell. There is a bunch of us heading to BVJ on the weekend you have picked so it looks like I won't make it this year. Of course plans can change from now to then but as of right now I have committed to going.

Dmay
02-15-2017, 08:18 AM
Okay.....we'll wait til Friday, 2 more days, see what anybody else has to say, then carve it in stone. Hate to miss anybody, but can't work for everybody, I have to accept that.

Armorman.....and anybody else.....weather looks promising so the line is gonna be live this weekend..............

(Big Valley......what, are you in mid-life crisis? ;D)

BVJ is over rated. And Aug 5th is perfect for me.

5th is good here, actually any day is good Darrell. I might just have to kidnap Aman to save him. Shania cd collection is worn right out eh C.

Hi Darrell,

I'm easy either way.

Dmay
02-17-2017, 08:44 AM
Thanks guys. Hate for anybody to miss out, but of course life gets in the way for somebody all the time.

Stick with the date as is, Aug 5th and hope to see as many old and new friends as possible.

This is near Elk Point? Well hell that's only a half hour north of me! I'm liking the sounds of this, I may be able to sneak away for a day or two.

Due to fires I might not be able to come to the shoot. 140 hectare Fire is less than 2km away. Rain is 2 days away. I hope rain wins. One day at a time.

Dang. I was hoping to track you down and introduce myself this year. Good luck with the fire situation. Be safe above all else.

As for the shoot...I'll be there if I have to steal a car to make it. ;)

Steal? You must have all the parts to make a car stashed in your garage and basement. Or maybe you could just whip one up in the machine shop.

they already did that.
I read awhile back that they made a car that flies. Was suppose to be available sometime this year.

Well it's official, I'm not able to leave the fire protection responsibilities at this time. They are letting the forest burn, quite possibly till snow flies. Today I watched what $7000 dollars an hour does with a Sikorsky S61 water dropper and a Bell 206 observer. Not quite sure why they don't put it out. The sikorsky spent 3/4 of and hour dropping water on some fingers that ventured off the fires path. Nothing on the leading edge of the fire. Reaching over 500 acres now. Yes I can see it from my place. Darrell Have a great one again my friend. Hug and thank May for me too.
Depressed.

Well darn Tigrr, gonna miss ya. Hang in there and keep things damp. Stay safe.


Grass is cut, targets painted and ready to go. Big thanks to Tyson and Brad for helping me out.
Few things to do last minute to get the line set up, and Mrs. working on the meal........weather forecast looking good so far.....I guess we're ready to go.

Sorry to hear you won't be making the trip Tigrr. Stay safe out there.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again. I've got enough ammo rolled up for three rifles/calibres. And hopefully I have room to bring out my new shooting table with a cupholder to try out for the first time.

It looks like the weather Gods will be smiling down on us Saturday too. What more could you ask for!

I should be rolling in around 9ish.

Looks like we'd better bring some wet weather gear. Hey...whats more fun....sitting at home bored, or sitting on top of a ridge, holding metal things in a lightening storm ? Lol.

A big thank you goes out to our gracious hosts...Darrel & Fay. Although it was a bit damp in the afternoon, it didn't deter the spirits of those who showed up...

And the funky screwdriver/flashlight was really cool. Thanks Darrell! And what would a fun shoot be without the fabulous meal afterwards? Fay, you out did yourself yet again.

See everyone next year!

Spent a great day shooting with great friends. Got too hot, got too cold, got too hot again, then got too cold again. Got sun, got clouds, got rain, then got more sun. I even got to show a new shooter...never shot a gun before....the basics of the hobby and got him a few hits out past 300 yards. Got another almost new shooter a few hits out there too. MANY thanks to Darrell, Fay, and everybody who came out. It was a day to remember.

That looks like a great event!

Can't go wrong with a cannon, new and old friends and a good place to shoot.
