    With the large numbers of Central Texans on the board, I would like to suggest an Austin Range day or other get together.

    As the weather should be cooling off soon, we can get together for a fun day. If someone has some land they are willing to host, great. If not, My suggestion is the Lone Star Range north of Lockhart. Reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere.

    What say y'all?

    Sounds good. Don't have good land access right now. Maybe a range on 183?

    Again....with notice, I would love to talk/meet members here on the forum and "pick brains/learn" in the process. Would just need to know a proposed date to see if I can make it, as I don't have a set schedule in the oilfield, would just depend on when my days off comes.

    Life got in the way, again. I changed shifts again (every 28 days) and am working weekends again. Sunday the 11th of November is my next weekend day off. The next week is getting into Thanksgiving.

    I do not want to put it too far into the cold weather. I will check my schedule and see when I can take a day off. November 3rd? What say y'all

    There is cold weather in Texas?

    I wish I could join you all. I either have the money and no time or time and no money. :(

    "Cold" is relative. Below 50 in the open at the range is not much fun. I'll wear shorts and a t-shirt to 45 degrees, I just have no desire to have numb fingers if they can be avoided.

    I'm down in Portland just north of Corpus Christi, and I'd be game. Like most everyone else need that advanced notice.

    November 17th/18th is my next full weekend off. Sunday the 11th is OK too. Maybe we roll the dice and hope for nice weather?

    We must have the same schedule- 4 on/2 off.
    I'll be off those days also,so I could make it down either time.
