Fun Shoot...just about any kind you want. LOL
If you have and can bring them, lug your table and chairs as well as any shooting bags, rests or shooting sticks. Anyone that has good stout targets you are welcome to bring those too. Be advised they will be shot up...LOL.
Again this year we are going to try and set the range up according to airgun fpe. That way we can preserve the targets as long as possible.

Good deal Dennis. I'll reserve you two tables in the vendor area. And hold off a bit if you want for booking. I'm getting them to block off some, from the attached poll, and getting a GTA discount code for us. Will post it as soon as I can. Will be great to see you guys again this year. Missed you last year partially due to weather.

Welcome to the club, Tommy. I've hit that age, too, and nursing a torn rotator cuff to boot (left shoulder). That's OK, Bench rest is good, in a pinch, kneeling works, and when all else fails.... prone supported  ;)

Patrick, just add to the poll above so I will have a head count of how many RV spots and campsites we will need. I believe we have 22 hookup sites available and getting one shouldn't be an issue. Hargis has said again that he has scheduling a gun show at the same time down the hill from us at the new event area. So I'm not sure at this point if the pb gun show is still happening and if they will be needing RV spots. I'll check and go ahead and speak for a few.
Levi, one of the many good things about this event is if it can sling a pellet, bring it. You will have fun. And most folks are very glad to let you handle and shoot their airguns. If you see one you would like to try out, just ask. Our folks are the finest kind and most are proud to let you shoot their pride and joy.
:)
I usually bring 10-20 myself but I'm lucky to find time to shoot one or two. LOL
If I'm around and you want to shoot one of mine, you are very welcome!!!

I did answer the pole. I could be able to show up early and help out. How much do the rv sites cost per night?

RV/campsites are no charge. There is no cost to attend our annual event. Just your expenses to travel, stay and eat. There is no charge to our vendors for tables. It is a GTA gathering, not a money making event. We do accept donations of cash or merchandise. The cash donated will go toward the expenses of the event and items donated will either be used as door prizes or raffled off to also raise funds FOR the event. Again, with Saturday being the main event day, GTA Forums will furnish the lunch meal. Free to everyone and it is a feast!!! I'm not going to commit but one of our great members likes to jump in the kitchen to fix up some out of his world famous meatball subs. But for sure we will have pulled pork sammiches, all of the sides and fixins' and drinks. We eat GOOD.
Hargis may also crank up the concession kitchen during the event so you can purchase what he and his crew cook. Maybe he will prepare some of his famous "crack" burgers. LOL
He can explain but it's his secret sauce that makes folks cry for more.
LOL

I think this is doable. There are no other air gunners in the 2 rifle clubs that I belong to. It would be nice to meet others that have a similar interest. I could use a little better directions to the Gallatin County Fairgrounds. I couldn't get Mapquest or Google Maps to show me where that is located. I found the Gallatin Fire Dept.

Take I-71 in Kentucky to US-127, exit 62. go south on US-127 about 1-1/2 miles and look for the fairground entrance on the west side of the road. If you miss it you will go into Glencoe.

Any one from southeast Ohio Who would be willing to hook up and educate me a little? Maybe even do some shooting.

Any thing in the area that my 80 year old mom might enjoy, she likes to tag along whenever I take the rv on the road.

Hey Tim, since this is a fun gathering, anyone is very welcome and encouraged to bring their items for sale or trade. Bring your table(s) and set up a pop-up or if there's room under the big tents and swap away.
