2017 Iowa Meet and Shoot
« on: April 26, 2017, 03:01:24 AM »
Is there any interest in a get together in northern Iowa this summer? 

If so, I am looking at a weekend at a range south of Clarksville just off Highway 3 and west of Shell Rock.  Range has solid benches  and up to 150 yards for those interested in a NUAH qualification.  Trap shooting also available.  Grilling/BBQ may be done on site.  Cost would include a $5.00 membership fee, good for the rest of the year and provides insurance coverage, with other costs to be determined.  There are two campgrounds about equidistant (3-4 miles) from the range with electric hookups for $12 a night.  There is also a paintball range near the Waterloo Airport that will fill tanks to 4500 PSI for $5.00 while you wait.

If you are interested, please respond with shooting interests and a ballpark date.

Clarksville’s Pioneer Days festival is scheduled for June 8-10 – carnival rides, etc.

PS:  For history buffs:  Clarksville is the home of the original Pete & Shortys where the owners of Hooters got there start and their Calendar Girls make an annual, but unannounced, visit during the summer.

Depending on the date, I'll try to make it there but probably wouldn't know for sure until shortly before the date set.

Sounds like fun.  Lilly and I would be interested, most of our summer is open.

I'm interested. I have a lot of balls in the air right now (life-juggling), so it's hard to say yet whether I will be available.

If my wife hears about the chicken-girls, my wife definitely won't be there, and my efforts won't be so easy either. #jealouswife

I'm definitely interested in this shoot. I have every other weekend off so I'm hoping it lands on the right one. Would love to shoot with some fellow GTAers.

Interesting that 3 of the 4 replies are from Illinois and not Iowa.  I am going to set a tentative date of June 10-11 simply because of the extra activities available during Pioneer Days. 

Tims229:  Will this date fit your schedule?

Tater:  Since you are a moderator, can this be posted in other gates for wider dissemination?

Thanks,
Larry

We'll do anything to get out of this state.   ;D

I could move this thread over, but I think it would be best to just make a new thread in the Announcement Gate once the date is set. You could copy/paste the rules you posted above in it too.

Sounds like a plan! The following week we will be in Minot, N.D.  Maybe I can stop and see Mike at FDAG the Monday after the shoot.  Lilly and I have pencilled the date in.  We are excited.

Larry,

We hope to see you Saturday.   We will have a couple of Daisys and a pair of German .177's with us.

Well, things happen, it doesn't look like we will make it to the Iowa shoot.  Hope you folks have a good turnout and a great time.
