Haha that was a good one! Jerry should I put 2 down for you. Also Hoosier yeah I can put you down on the list if you would like to come out. All contingencies will depend on how the wife feels about the situation lol dates and times may vary. Hopefully by then I can have more than 10 people,!! Last year I think we had close to 10 for the first year of the shoot and it was cold and windy that day. I'm putting up a radio tower currently at my house. Soon as that's done I will be getting a date together. Thinking 3rd weekend in July or first weekend in August since it's my birthday weekend anyways. I would do a porta potty like I did last year. And snacks will depend on safety whether they're provided or not lol

Please give as much notice as possible to the date.
All I need is a place to park my truck and somewhere to "do #2" in the morning.

as of today, our Carlyle Lake Rendezvous (CLR) has been cancelled indefinitely.  so unless i magically finish renovating the master bath and sell the house, count me in for 1.   you're only a 2 hour drive north of me, so i'd be commuting each day.

Brandon would have to confirm, but it looks like there are a couple of hotels in Freeport IL. Looks like about 20 minutes away.

There are a couple of hotels in the area mostly in Freeport. That's about a 120-30 minute drive to my house. Everyone is free to camp out for the night. I will do a porta potty again since it worked out well last time. I can get a sooner date son as Illinois lifts the gathering ban stuff. Looking At July 24-25th. Newbies are also welcome lol heck we are all newbies to something. Come and learn a bit about the airgun hobby. If your interested send me a PM with number of people and weather you plan to camp out or hotel it up

If you are drawing name out of the hat, please put Lillys' and mine on the same card. We have dusted off our Daisies and are ready to play.  I've dressed one of our R7's as a Tyrolean and it is a fun shooter.

Yeah may just have to draw names, but i think there is plenty of room out here to stretch out haha i hope... I have it marked on my Calendar also for that date. I will put both your names down on a card bob if it comes down to having to do something of that sort. I would hate to have to do anything like that to much country hospitality out here haha i cant turn anyone away. Sounds like everyone is figuring out if the date works or will work. Great one step closer, any idea on distance everyone would enjoy. I think i can stretch a lane out to 200 yards or so if we go length wise of the property. Last year we mostly stayed at the 30 yards. I have several targets both traditional and field target if anyone wants to try that i will setup a small field target spot with tip downs or something. I will fog the yard for bugs the night before so hopefully they wont be a problem.
