Well that saves me the call in the AM to go or not, been watching the weather and with the way it was I was about 70% not going ( 2.25 hour drive for me}. Really want to meet all so next time. Maybe more will ask for tags by then.

Man, last night the chance of rain was 40% for Saturday, and this morning it went up to 80% with 10-20 mph winds. Hopefully we can get together sometime this fall.

i left 2 pairs of muddy boots out last night to dry because the forecast didn't mention rain.  just before going to bed it began raining and did so for about 90 minutes. 


Steve, where about are you?    i'm in the sandwich/somonauk area.  30 minutes south of dekalb.  if your down this way we could drive together. i have a pickup so room isn't an issue.

I'm in Plainfield about 35 miles east of you. When I go out with all my junk I fill my wife's CR-V pretty full.

the Wolverine and RAW each have a hard case, Regal a soft case, Full auto BB gun, range bag, air tank,  2 rests, table and chairs, spotting scope, 10x the paper targets I need,  and what ever looks good at the time. That is why I love to go out with the grand-kids I sit back and they do all the work.

I see you are near Hickory Hills gun club, have I met you there before?

Ahhh, sorry for my bad memory of names. I miss that place, and Joe. Last I heard he wasn't getting any better.

yeah, i bring my shooting chair/table, targets, folding table, tent, air tank, 4-5 guns, and a cooler.  but there's still room for more...stuff. ;)


you have a wolverine?  i want one bad.  just can't afford it.


i get my tank filled at Dive Right In.  90 minute round trip drive, i need a compressor, or a membership to Hickory Hills to justify the drive. ;D [size=78%]  [/size]

It's almost guaranteed.  >:(
I filled the truck's gas tank yesterday, topped off the air tank at Ninja, took out all the guns and gear and checked cleaned it all. And Nicole was supposed to make brownies tonight to bring tomorrow.  Of course I would have sampled a few tonight.

Glad I cancelled, it started pouring at 9 am Saturday morning. Wind was terrible, was blowing the chickens around 😂. Looking for a date with decent weather. What kind of notice does everyone need? Sorry you had got all readied up Jerry, I still feel bad that I had to cancel. Friday was so nice out, hopefully we can get a dry calm patch in October

Don't feel bad at all! You made the right decision and saved us all the trip. It was horrible here too and I'm sure sloppy for a fun shoot there.
Nicole needs 2 weeks notice to be sure she can get the day off. Tomorrow she will let me know the soonest weekend day she can get. Whatever works best for you we will try to make it.

The first weekend in October is out for me, but should be able to come any other weekend. My wife is taking 3 college courses along with having a full time daycare, so she pretty much stays home to do homework on the weekends.

The earliest we could make it is Oct. 12th as well. Any weekend after that is also good, but Nicole needs two week notice to get time off if she is scheduled.
