Yep, had a great time despite the weather. I'd venture to say it even made it a little more fun! My mother came this time after Dave and his family left. I never thought she'd enjoy shooting so much! She just might be hooked!

i had the rifles in the truck and ready to go, but some health issues kept me home.  :-\

i do most of my shooting in cold weather, so if you schedule another event, i'll do my best to stay healthy.

I have plans for at least one "snow shoot." If I had to guess, I'd say January sometime.

Cool. Will there be another one before then (this year)?

Looks pretty nice there under that canopy in spite of the weather.

Uhhhh, I mean, I could do one in early December if there's enough interest. I figure fewer folks would want to come out in the cold so I oughtn't hold them so often.

After rugby season next year (usually ends the last weekend of May) I'm going to try and hold one every six weeks or so, taking care to not over lap with other things.
