I would second a vote for Cedar Glade....I would prefer close to the event, over close to the larger town.
Sounds like things are really progressing there....thanks Eric!

Are we attempting to have a combo shoot with Rimfire Central again this year, or is it all airguns all the time? 

Gotta say...Eric's collection of rimfires was the best I have ever seen!

Just got back from a sit down meeting at Crown Point Resort...... ;D

This looks like a super deal fellas. More details to come.

Going to give our fearless leader a call to discuss before the flood gates of goodness is let loose.

Here’s a Facebook page for those who wish to cruise around and see what they have to offer.

Basically Crown Point is a one stop Resort. Bar, restaurant, pool, hot tub, exercise room, meeting room....and lake side views. And ......close to the shoot. For 5ose who would like to go back to their room and recharge and come back out for the night shoot, this would be ideal. Cedar Glade is also top notch but without the bar and restaurant.....equally close to the show too.

More later.

I can vouch for this place I stayed there for the last Fun Shoot my single had a king size bed and comfortable pull out couch for my adult son to sleep on clean and spacious. Our room overlooked the boat dock and had a nice view of the lake.

I forgot to mention....a negotiated cut price per room for the GTA group with possibly 25 units will be available or more. All units can sleep 4 to 6, so there can be shared accommodations for those in larger groups.  I’m working with the manager today to get all details for the offer worked out.

I really appreciate all of Eric's work and effort to make our Fun Shoot an event to remember. And I'm certain all that attend will appreciate his efforts too!!!
I for one will pick Crown Point as my first choice. After that, Teresa and I don't mind a little drive if the stay is worth it. So if Crown Point doesn't work out, we will once again stay at the Spring River Lodge. It has very comfortable and clean rooms at an excellent price. Close to other things like grocery, eating, dry goods and other shopping. They have a good continental breakfast and only 15 miles from the Expo Center. The staff are outstanding also.
Anyway, it seems we have several choices this year, thanks to Eric!!!!
PLENTY of room and great accommodations so please come out and enjoy the GTA family event.

That's the good thing about Spring River Lodge...The eateries are nearby.  I'm thinking if we stay at the lodge, we will still be driving back to town for dinner, but there is a buffet style place halfway and others too.  Either one works for me.  I do like the idea of staying on the water and being close-in to the shoot.

Thanks Eric and Dave for all the fine planning for us!

What is the distance from the fun shoot event to Crown Point? When I tried doing a google map search, it brought up Crown Point Tn, no the Arkansas resort.

5 miles to the Expo from Crown Point Resort.

FYI....the resort has a very nice restaurant on site with adult beverages. All walking distance from your rooms. The restaurant is called “Papa Dicks”. Great hand tossed, oven baked pizzas.

And I've about decided that Teresa and I will stay at Spring River Lodge again this year. I don't mind a 15 minute drive and the place is fantastic. And saves us $20 (or more) per night. I'm talking to Ashley (the manager) tomorrow evening to set up the GTA group discount again in case anyone else wants to join us there.

I've put up 2 polls we need input on. First one is a head count of who plans on attending. Since I can only have one poll per thread I started a second thread asking for input as to where you would or will stay. We need input on both of these to work on plans.
We also need input as to how many would participate in the semi-FT event and the night shoot. The FT event will be for bragging rights, no national points or anything. Our event IS a FUN shoot after all.
LOL
Thanks for all the input.

Are you going to get HD targets so as to avoid damage when hit by something more solid than a 20 FPE .177? I don't want to have to resurrect my 20 cal Marauder...LOL

My most valuable friends are the ones who will tell me I am wrong.

More valuable still are the ones who go to the trouble of making me see it.

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
