Frozen Finger Fun Shoot
« on: November 01, 2017, 10:21:09 PM »
Hi all,

After a stirring show in the polls (my fault) I've decided to go with December 2nd, from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. There will be a "bad weather" date set for the following Saturday, the 9th.

There will be chili, it will be chilly. We'll have a fire, it'll all be good fun. I'm going to try and make a shotgun cap board for some more targets that go boom! Those will be hard to hit!

Show of hands? This is a fun shoot, bring whatever you'd like to take a shot at! Toy soldiers, balloons, candy....you name it! Just make sure you can clean it up after you're done.

Sorry I missed the poll for the date. I would have voted to make it earlier, better chance for decent weather but we'll make it.

Well, the weekend previous is Thanksgiving and any earlier than that and I figured I wouldn't be giving folks enough time to plan (and me enough time to post fliers and stuff).

The shoot is happening this weekend! Weather looks like it's going to be nice and warm for the first Saturday in December! Doesn't mean you shouldn't bring gloves though...

Joe,

Lilly and I look forward to meeting you Saturday.  Shall I bring some soda cans for a timed can match?  Lilly has had a tough week, she may be naming those targets before she shoots them! I hope Jerry and Nicole can attend.

Joe,

Thanks for hosting the Triple F Shoot.  Lilly and I gad a good time,  We got to see new faces.  The range is LARGE!  The shooters were good folks and the chili was excellent.  We had good roads coming and going.  We hope to attend again. 

Thanks to you for your efforts,

Glad you made it back safe Bob. And sorry we didn't get there earlier. I figured with the drive you had, that you would get there later and stay late.

Jerry,

My eyes have been giving trouble, I have had several laser treatments.  Hopefully they are now stable,  car lights at night are just too much for me to face.  I wanted to be home before dark.
