Well shucks .... 4000 miles and some twisty roads between the LEFT and RIGHT coasts prevent this.

Hope you geta darn fine turn out tho .... Nutin like fun in the sun with your fellow AG enthusiasts  ;D

Scott, that's why there are aircraft :)

Hope to see you again this year...

Yes, unless I'm AU that week.  Not sure yet.  I'll travel on Friday this time so I miss less of Sat.  That's a hint for all travelling :) DON'T MISS SAT!

Is there a deadline to let you guys know if we can make it?  I'd LOVE to go, and since I don't mind the tent camping, I could drag the ole tent along!

I reworked the initial post. The link for some reason opens YOUR local area. Just type in the address 201 Blair Mill Road - Belton, SC and see where it will be.

With the tents, it is really first come first best spots. Look at the pictures from previous years. Gene SHOULD have ample space for whomever wants to camp.

NOT happening. We did that last year to help someone out. But I have my room reservations. NO changing of the dates. May wind up just being me, Gene and our wives. But the dates are solid!!!

Sweet i might be able to do this...  I didn't know about the previous meetings, also noticing that there are a BUNCH of SC folks that are into air-gunning..  Now i just got to get the approval from the "BOSS" being retired the schedule is not a problem, however accommodating the wife who still works is most important!! probably going to drag the camper and stay at Devils fork state park and make it a LONG weekend...  That way i can get in some Kayaking as well..

It's official, I'm in double trouble.  I'll be out on a job and it's mother's day weekend.  I'm missing the fun shoot and still catching havoc!  Everyone enjoy and I'll shoot for 2015.

Canopy is good for shade and to keep sun off guns. We shoot at bells,paintballs,paper targets,Christmas ornaments, inflated rubber gloves and anything else we bring or think of. Gene also has a bunch of spinners too. Bring targets not bad to have on hand anyway.
