Won't be able to make this one - I'll be in the hills of Western PA. I'll be there next week though, to tune up for Minifest and the plate shoot at Tusco.

Doggonit.

That is the day of the John C. Garand Match up at Camp Perry. I'll be on the line with almost 1500 other Garand shooters, trying to get a bronze medal.

Take 480 East to 422 East. When you get to Parkman (in Geauga County) turn North on 528/88. When you get to where 88 cuts off and goes east, follow Rt. 88. You'll go through a little burg named West Farmington, cross SR 534 and go until you get to the next cross road. It's about 3-miles after Rt. 534. There will be a small Div. of Wildlife sign that has "target range" on it on the North side of the road. Turn North. The road dead ends at our rifle range. Make sure you pick up a range pass before you come. We don't sell them at the range. You can purchase the pass anywhere you would get a hunting or fishing license. The price is $5.00 for a day pass or $25.00 for a season pass. Since this will be your first time, you'll get a quick briefing on how we run the range. If you go out on a weekend, just ask for Tom and I'll give you the briefing.

I would do it this weekend except I have to attend the wedding of one of my Lodge Brothers(who by the way has a curio and relics FFL). You gotta check out my new wagon at the next shoot Groucho.
Link Posted: 7/28/2004 8:08:26 PM EST
hmmmmm...I should be able to make it the 14TH........I think we should award a trophy to the best red wagon......To the newcomers, we'd enjoy meeting you and feeding after. Watch out for Capitalist though, he's been known to eat off other peoples plates when they're not looking.

I'll miss giving the new wagon a safety inspection.

Groucho



There will be plenty of time at future shoots for wagon inspections
I'm heading to a wedding myself in 2 hours.

Link Posted: 8/1/2004 2:58:05 PM EST
Well I'll be in PA on the 13-14th. I might head out on the weekend of the 7th though. I'm planning on heading down to minifest for at least one of the days though. That should be fun. Hope to se you guys there.

Also the shoot in september cannot be on the weekend of the 4th or 11th. I 'll be gone those weekends and the whole intervining week. I've got to get to one of the GR shoots this summer.

AAAHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Remember I'm the one that's losing weight right now by eating one meal a day. I couldn't afford to feed you two beefeaters
Link Posted: 8/1/2004 6:01:21 PM EST
I'm in. Tune up time for mini fest for any who venture out to Black's farm the following week.
Besides, shootin & eatin are the second and third best things in life. (apologies to Lee Marvin in "Cat Balou" <sp> for sort of ripping off the quote.)
Link Posted: 8/3/2004 5:15:11 PM EST
i think that i can make it.
Link Posted: 8/4/2004 7:56:45 AM EST
So does that mean Capitalist is PAYING? Or does that mean he's wearing lunch? Oh, and what's start time?

I figure between 11:30-12:00. That's when everybody usually gets there. You're right you don't need to ask about the second part. Bro Bill gets cranky if he doesn't get his massive amounts of BBQ pork
You gonna join us afterwards Eddie or are ya allergic to BBQ sauce?
Link Posted: 8/12/2004 7:59:28 PM EST
Shotar, is she at the YMCA Camp????if so, my niece is there also this week. She's in the horseshow tomorrow...Eddy....if you're nice, I may remember to bring your SWAT tape.......
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 3:03:03 AM EST
So we are meeting at about noon... when does the range actually open?
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 3:40:39 AM EST
WB Bob, the range is open 9-5PM. We usually start cleaning up about 4:30, and split about 4:45PM......Barney get anxious about that time because his trees need pruning and he wants to get home...

It's more like your stomach starts growling at 4:30 PM and then you start getting cranky because you want food...
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 9:29:36 AM EST
It's about time you got back Eddy...Are you now a liberal?????

WB Bob I don't know if you've been to Grand River Range before, but you need to purchase a one day pass for the ODNR range at any place that sells hunting liscenses for $5 before you can shoot. I don't want you to make the trip without purchasing your permit beforehand. I look forward to throwing lead with you
Link Posted: 8/14/2004 1:28:03 AM EST
[Last Edit: 8/14/2004 1:29:35 AM EST by illigb]
I have the pass. I bought it online at the ODNR website.

I will be getting there earlier than noon, probably about 10am or so.

Bob

Edited to say... I look forward to meeting you and Bro. Bill. I'm curious if your description of Bro. Bill is accurate.
Link Posted: 8/14/2004 5:22:22 AM EST
BANG..BANG..BANG...HEY, YOU GUYS STARTED WITHOUT ME!!!!!I'M GETTING INTO THE BLUE STREAK AS WE SPEAK!!!
Link Posted: 8/14/2004 6:18:15 PM EST
For those that couldn't make the shoot today, you missed out on CAPITALIST'S Target Hanger Trick Shooting Clinic:



mmsig229 also failed to properly demonstrate a proper K-turn with the little red wagon, resulting in this unfortunate HAZMAT incident:

Where did you guys end up going to eat?

It was a pleasure meeting and shooting with all you guys (and Brothers).

Damn!!!!From the looks of us, we should spend more time working out with WB Illigb, and less time at the Post House!!!!!
Link Posted: 8/16/2004 5:21:20 PM EST
Sorry I missed you folks. It's always a good time when you come.

Poor Rodney Steel Frame and his family. All Rodney wanted to do when he grew up was to be a target frame at the Grand River Target Range. That was his life long ambition from the time he and his brothers and sisters were billets in the steel mill. They hoped and prayed that they could be proud steel target frames. They got their wish and were so proud. Then, the heartless Huns from AR15.com drilled him and his (formerly) happy family. Sad, so sad.

And there was a wagon accident!!???? Good thing I was at the wedding. If I had been working the range, it would have been tickets for everybody!

BTW, Barney is no longer at the range. He transfered to another location. (What's that sound I hear?)

Well, I hope to see y'all at the next shoot. I'll have my tire depth gauge so I know the wagons are safe.

Thanks for coming to our range and keep them all in the 10 ring.

Eddie"Engineer" blew apart his target frame just as bad as I did, but he had the camera so mine was the only one that had a pic taken of. You missed out. You didn't see my new wagon. Of course everybody threw thier stuff on my wagon so they wouldn't have to carry it. Did Barney end up doing his first love "planting trees" or what?
