WooHoo!!!!
Reservations made and ready for it. Everybody that possibly can NEEDS to be there. You will enjoy it. Just look back at the photos from the previous years. They just get better and better.
And once again I will asked, beg and plead for any donations members and member/vendors would like to make to the event. We always have a bunch of good door prizes and raffle items for you to purchase chances on. We will gladly accept anything in new or like new condition. I'll beg and plead more as the date gets closer. But keep us in mind and start making your plans to join us.

SAFE & Happy Shooting!!!!

It appears that Belton (Paradise), is close enough to Troy, S.C. and Anderson, S.C., that I can schedule going to this Event at the same time I visit with the Folks at Bryan and Associates and The Crooked Barn!:) If I'm not mistaken, I am only a 4-6 hour drive from these areas.?.

Will be well worth it and a great reason to get out the camping gear!

Only a little over 4-months away. Not sure I'll know how to act around so many other Airgunners? :o

Can't wait!

Thanks for the advanced notice! ;D

Any special reservations, or notice that needs to be given if you are going to pitch a tent?

Looks like only 214-miles to drive, not bad at all.

Regards,

Al.

Count me in, I'll be there.  The wife might not come this time since I left her in the hotel room all day....

Al, it isn't nearly as far as it seams, I get to Greenville in less than 3hrs, get a hotel, then back track 30 mins to Belton.

I hope I can make this! I'm already going to be passing by four times in the next three months! On the way to Atlanta next week, on the way home the week after and then the same at the end of March. Maybe I can hook up with someone driving down from Upstate NY to tote my guns so I can ride my motorcycle down.

That or sling a handful of rifles and pistols across the back. I'm sure that would go smoothly... :D

Is the map link working for you guys? It's not for me.

283 miles for me to Belton, not bad at all at 55 mpg. :D

Do you guys welcome newbies?

Only 88 mi. from North Augusta.  I doubt I would shoot but I still like to watch, socialize, and learn for a day.

Well, if you come, I'd just about bet you WILL shoot.
LOL
Really kinda hard not to. Although some accuse me of not taking trigger time.
:)
Just to remind everyone, I generally bring between 10-20 of my babies. If you see one in my rack that looks interesting, PLEASE feel free to grab it and give it a try. You will see all kinds, shapes and calibers there.  Many of our folks have an AWSOME collection of goodies!!! And most are glad to let you handle them.
