yes! please do. but be advised, the only slots i have open are in the morning of 9 mar at 9am. i can only take out 5 at a time to teach and score.
but if your guests are skilled shooters, i can always put them on field 2 and let them shoot skeet on their own until i need the trap range. then we can switch. since the meet is structured, anyone shooting out of sequence will have to do so as room permits. new shooters get priority, you understand right? im only going to have 1 other man helping me and he will be loading machines and will be in the cabin greeting and signing up shooters while im out teaching the new guys.... leaving the button, scoring, and loading to the other squad. it may be a glitch in the program. but if you come prepared and knowing what may await you...by all means, bring some guys. the meet may have its shoot off at around 5pm, but the range will be under lights until 10pm. everyone will get shooting in. thats a promise....unless the machines break.

as far as helping with free tickets to guests...no one has shown an interest and no one took the free ticket ftf offered. so i dont think thats keeping ftf guys from signing up and coming. maybe some lurkers are reading and may nibble on it, but i doubt it. if they cant afford a ticket, how will they afford the trip here?
and if i dont hear from anyone here soon, im closing the door. i cant handle a flash mob at the range without planning for them. if that does happen, i wont have staff to greet them and manifest them. it would be a 'cluster gag'.

i need control so i can ensure everyones safety.

Sounds great, we'll have a great time, I'm planning on bringing a truck camper and spending the night, maybe bring a smoker and do a few slabs of ribs and an adult beverage or two...

That's what kept me from going to shoot. I could swing the $50 but the cost to get there and stay overnight was beyond my means at this point. Bobski offered to let me sleep in the clubhouse but at my age, I need to sleep on a bed. I appreciate the offer, though, bobski and I hope those that go to your shoot have a great time.

hate to ruin your day and dont be offended but no alcohol on the premise. sorry guys. its part of the range/farm rules.
i have a 110 electric plug on the pole along the club, and if you need water, i can run the hose to your hookup.

ironhorse, make sure to visit my website for accomodations in town. i suggest mountain grove. its the closest and most modern. but watch out for the amish horse carts at walmart! they even come to town on farm tractors pulling hay cart taxis with families because they consider them tools. cars and pickups are considered vanity and luxury.
