DIRECTIONS: http://www.claytargetsonline.com/club.php/2888 ------------------------- by popular demand and for the ones who couldnt come in APR, im offering it again in OCT. start planning now! i enjoy bringing cyber posters together to share something in common, shooting! being retired military, i have a lot of free time to devote to my passion, shotgun sports and people. i enjoy it so much, that i bought this abandoned range a few years ago, just to have people come out and learn to shoot. it also gives the locals something to do after those long hard days on the farm. i live in va.. so i only visit up to mo. twice a year. so i'd like to offer you all a chance to come meet me at my place for a great little getaway which i promise will be worth your time. i use to shoot on the navy shooting team, rifle, pistol, and shotgun. i was on the world champion navy skeet team that won gold in san antonio back in the 90's. i know the game. to make your visit to the ftf meet worth the trip, im offering free instruction and coaching to all that sign up. i prefer it to be 'bring your own shotgun,' but if you dont have one, i will ensure some will be here for you to borrow for free. and too, others will surely bring some to loan as well. i will open my clubhouse for free as well. it has a kitchen, so anyone is welcome to use it to cook. i cant cook for you guys....i'll be teaching on the range, so if you want to bbq or eat grub, bring your own food and cook it yourselves. i also supply coffee to all shooters for free. the range parking lot is big enough for campers. i dont have sewage, but i do have free electricity and water hookups. bring your extention cords and hoses. so if you want to bring a camper to save on motels, feel free. pitch a tent too if youd like. the clubhouse is knotty pine, has running water, toilet, heat and ac. weather is always the stick in the mud, so we all really do need to plan this as a weekend event. banking on one day is a gamble. so plan it as a weekend getaway and enjoy some of the sites around here if it rains. if you can get here friday, it will give us wiggle room. if you leave monday morning, even better. but i understand most of you must return for work. we will shoot sunday if one of the days is a washout. tickets are 50.00. bring 10 boxes of shells and 3 (90 count) cases of targets. many pitch in to make the trophy free and many pitch in to give free prizes to winners. the more people give, the more the winners win. we will gladly receive any other donated items needed to hold the meet, like cases of clay targets, donations to maintain machines, etc... this match is designed for beginners to get a feel for the sport on a budget. i will shepard you thru the basics to the 5 different games for free. of course if youre a skilled shooter, come as well! but to ensure there are no ringers, the top score must shoot against me in the last event if they want to win; because, i shoot in proxy for last place. if i win, last place wins the match. high score wins the prizes. so dont be scared away over a match due to a lack of skill. its a lot of fun. and when the meet is over...we all either have a pot luck closing ceremony or attend a dutch steak dinner at the local pub called club 60 in mountain grove, mo.. it goes well into the night. http://www.urbanspoon.com/cities/210-missouri/restaurants/1066216-club-60-steak-house/menu so get out there in the ftf forums and send people this direction. --------------------------------------- for those choosing to come, heres your bug out list................ * shotgun, 12ga or 20ga. must have shoulder stock. must be in working order. suggest pump, semi, o&u, or sbs. * interchangable chokes both IC & FULL.
