You can tell how slow I am at work when I hide in the little room that my engraver is in and dream up things like the name tags. So anyone that want 1 just post what you want on it. The 1 that i made was about 1.5 x 3 inches with 3/16" letters.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Our annual church convention is that weekend. :(

To bad you can't make it, hopefully all goes well and I will have a spring shoot also.

That would be great! We'll all be itching to shoot again after winter.

I'm looking at the weather very closely it could be a good chance of cancellation of event and maybe move to another weekend. sorry but it's looking like it might be a stormy windy day not very good for air rifles.

Is there a garage, shed or barn near the shooting area that we could duck into if it starts raining?

There is a garage we can duck into, don't think anyone wants pig poo on them lol but there is a pig shed. I think we might be ok from the rain. Wind out here gets crazy 😵. But I am up for a challenge. 20 mph gusts are going to be a good challenge if you are going for distance. If the vast majority don't care about the rain and wind then we should be good to go. Bring bug spray!!! Fyi mosquitos out here have gone up from flooding. Also area is under several flood warnings. I am way up in elevation but please use caution while traveling this direction.

Event will unfortunately be cancelled for tomorrow. Storm chance has gone up to 60 percent and wind will be out of control, I will try to make a rain date soon for  a date in October. Sorry guys, I don't want anyone hurt. If you can please pass the word that it has been cancelled for tomorrow due to forcast

good call.  no sense everyone driving up there to huddle in a garage most of the day.  this weather has been nuts.  i'm trying to get a patio in and it won't stop raining long enough to pour.


i do most of my shooting in the winter months.  easier to stay warm than dry or cool.
