There are important things, in a persons life and there are things that enrich a persons life. This shoot be the enriching one. Hell or high water C and I will be there. Even if I have to carry the big dude there. The real estate gall had other plans. Be back in a week looking for land.

Dmay

Yep, there is one a mile away, I can reserve if you need. But I've got lots of room in the yard or at the range as well, no charge.

Max Owner

Alberta Premium rye for Darrell or maybe a extra large/extra long t-shirt with best shooting dude in Alberta. I will be bringing Glenlivet founders reserve. New leaf. It will be good to see everyone again. 3 years in smokeatory(purgatory with forest fire smoke). I have insurance now so I don't have to stay and save the place. Really looking forward to Darrell's shoot. 15 hour drive piece of cake.

Dmay

Cost? Donation?

Nope.

We shoot til 5:00 then shut the line down out of respect for neighbors.
Supper is supplied thereafter.

Thanx guys.

Will I be able to run a 2000 watt generator all night? Its a quiet one. For a sleep machine.

tigrr
06-09-2019, 10:09 PM
I had to google sleep machine. Sleep apnea?
Darrell he wants to park out past your grannies old house!! Oh wait maybe I'll park out near that old house.

tigrr
06-10-2019, 06:29 PM
If Darrell agrees this dude is going to make a free challenge. 3 golf balls at 1000. 1st hit tbd, 2nd hit 200 223 lapua 69gr bullets, 3rd 45/70 cast bullets assortment. Oh you can only win once!! LIG shooting is more fun.
If no hits we call numbers till they are gone.

Dmay
06-10-2019, 06:58 PM
Thanx guys.

Will I be able to run a 2000 watt generator all night?

Long as you have enough gas.....sure.

You still got the same Yamaha as in Hinton that time?

Dmay

If Darrell agrees this dude is going to make a challenge. 3 golf balls at 1000. 1st hit to be determined, 2nd hit 200 223 lapua bullets, 3rd 45/70 cast bullets..

I don't mind parking out by Grannie's old place.

Smaller version of the generator I had in Hinton. Trailer has a built in generator but runs at 3000 RPMs all the time. So its noisier.

I hope to be pulling in early Friday afternoon.

Darrel; if this is a problem I can work something else out.

Sean.

Dmay

Well, the hay on the line is cut and baled, thanks to my brother. Quite a feat in this weather pattern. Anyway, targets are painted, now just get all the tables and such set up. And of course help out the cook...

Sean if you can PM your phone #, I'll text you. I have a never-fail plan to get you set up.( Just a different route to the yard than normal.)

With the moisture and heat it is easy to predict chance of showers or something but I guess we'll see. Have had to shut down for a little rain before, but for the most part been pretty lucky. I daresay it may not be as screaming hot as some years, which certainly suits me.

Everybody travel safe and I look forward to seeing y'all....

I shall be around all day Friday.....reachable at 780-614-1974.

And don't forget your lawn chair!

Well...3, possibly 4 rifles packed. Shooting table. Ammo, of course. I just need to pick up a sun/rain shelter/cover. That's the last thing on my list. The boomers have had their zeroes rechecked. Fresh brass rotated into the game. I think I'm ready.

Hope the weigh-scales ain't open on Hwy 16. You'll be over-weight in that little car :)

Another glorious day of shooting. Mother nature was very cooperative this year. Mid to high 20's and high humidity made for some great shooting. While the crowd was smaller than previous years (big 3-gun weekend competition), we were an enthusiatic bunch.

Another great shoot and supper as always. How's your shoulder hugh?

tigrr
07-22-2019, 05:25 PM
First thanks to the shooting Buddy who put this together and the great cook. Had a great time and refreshed some old friendships and met some new friends.
Shoulder/arm is an owie! Didn't pull it back far enough to show shoulder. 45/70 isn't my favorite cal now.

But I will be more prepared next year...
Thanks C for your ballistic expertise.
Happy belated anniversary D&F.

Dmay

Well, thanks to everybody for coming out, and for the appreciative comments and gifts. It's our pleasure to share our fortune with others who enjoy it.
Hope nobody went home hungry.....or with any ammo left!
