So is the shooting part at a range or at a gravel pit or something? If at a range is there a charge and how much? What do we need to bring for th BBQ?

A gravel pit, a remote one not populated by loons. My group goes there about once a month.

Bring whatever you want to cook and drink, we'll provide the cooking hardware.

Well I will have to check my busy schedule but will definately give a tentitive "I'm in!" Anyone else need a ride from the Maple Valley/Renton area?

Tweak, I will get with you later for directions etc. Thanks.

Simple directions,

Meet up is 1100, 19JUL, outside of Elma, WA. There is a gravel turn out on the south side of the overpass at the intersection of HWY 8 and HWY 12. From there, we're convoying out.

E-mail rec'd 2Manchu.

Bring whatever you usually go shooting with and food to cook, drinks to drink. Bring, friends, wives, kids whatever. Just a laid back day of plinking then we can adjourn to my place in McCleary for BBQ.

well shoot since i actually live in elma it would be pathetic if i did not show up. So where are we meeting. Im sure if read more i would find it but im lazy.

edited to add
can you be more specific about which exit and exactly which gravel turn out. Is it by the texaco/tacobell or is it by the truckstop and bowling alley.

So how many folks do we have going to this shindig? It's starting to sound too good to miss. Anyplace a guy could crash around there for the night in case a certain someone were to consume a little too much frothy cold beverage at the BBQ?
Link Posted: 7/15/2003 1:17:48 PM EDT
I am 80% sure Im going. I willo be leaving around 3ish though to cover previous engagement in Seattle.

Ok, stupid question. Is the barbeque over a fire or on a gas grill? Reason I ask is that I don't like the taste of the gas on my steak so if it is a gas grill I will most likely bring burger instead.


I know, I know....

Mmmm, some baby back ribs and a couple of Coors Lites sure sound good right about now!!!
Link Posted: 7/16/2003 12:30:29 AM EDT
I too dislike gas grills and we have a charcoal grill on hand, with an unknown one coming down from Seattle.

So far looks to be about 20 people, mebbe a little more.

There is room, on the floor or the hideabed, at my place, for early arrivals or late departures.
Link Posted: 7/16/2003 12:31:31 PM EDT
Looks like steaks then. Or maybe Johnsonville brats. Dang, I shouldn't post when I'm hungry!
Link Posted: 7/16/2003 3:30:48 PM EDT
I'm ready

With any luck these two will be there ready to go. She's working on a better brake for the one in the foreground.

Coversix is inbound with one WG101 assault grill runway 090.

CV, the "female you" will also be there, running heavy with an MG3 and a modified RPD.

M sez she'll be sleepy but she'll make it, she's got a graveyard shift Fri night but her vacation starts Saturday.


Phil asked:You mean this isn't an airsoft get together?


You can bring all the airsoft you want Phil, we'll need some comic relief.

I used to get SA battle packs at The Marksman in Puyallup for $21/per. Bullseye used to have the same stuff for $24/per. Also, Larry's in Olympia usually has quite a bit of 7.62 on hand, though at higher prices.
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 1:21:02 AM EDT
I'm tempted to show up. SHould be an awesome day weather wise and fun wise. Only thing I hate is driving so far. Will have to see
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 3:13:33 AM EDT
From Sammamish? 3/4 the attendees are coming from that far. You can post the the WA Shooters list, maybe catch a car pool.

My bad, on checking my female to male dictionary she meant a Garand. Did you have a Garand? I thought that was Paul and Joe.

Speaking of Joe, he wrote me and said he might have issues showing up. Wanna help me cajole him into it?

Roger that, That would be the navy guys with the ancient weapons!

Joe needs to have his 4 corner point of contact there! If Paul can drive up from So. Cal, Joe can drive down from Bellingham!
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 7:53:46 AM EDT
I will be there. I probably will leave around 4 though.
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 10:03:17 AM EDT
Somebody needs to bring a digicam! The last couple of group shoots were kinda lame on the fun pics!
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 11:26:55 AM EDT
ok, mk_ultra and myself definately are down.

one problem - transportation. his car is a pos and mine is way over the milage for my lease.

i mailed phil_in_seattle about carpooling so this is just another place to catch his attention or anyone elses.

we're in n seattle. would be willing to drive to tacoma/federal way to catch a ride. meet in the walmart parking lot or something (need some 9mm anyway). would pay gas and buy the benefactor lunch. any takers?
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 2:50:03 PM EDT
Is anyone bringing shotgun stuff. Thrower, clays etc. I'm thinking about bringing the Mossy.

I had great time even though my firing pin busted on the Beretta luckily i fixed it today. It was great meeting those I had not met before we will definately have to get together again.
Link Posted: 7/21/2003 7:12:31 AM EDT
Thanks for that CavVet! You are more than welcome to help yourself to all the ammo you want that I left at the quarry, you'll just have to peel them off of the back of the pit.
