    Well, since the last meet and greet was such a success, we're going to try to do it again. This time it will be in the Spring (March or April), but we're not sure exactly when to do it. So like last time, there will be a poll attached to this thread. Pick the weekend that would be best for you. Multiple choices are allowed, so if two weekends work for you, vote for them both! :)

    The meet will take place on a Friday, and probably a Saturday if a few people want to stay for an extra day. The location is not set yet. We are working on that. It will most likely be somewhere a little South of the DFW area. I'll be updating this thread as we go.

    Feel free to bring as many guns as you want. We had a heck of a time last time, and we plan on having a lot of fun again. ;)

    So who want's to have a BLAST!? :D

    The first two options are best for me. I work weekends the next 4 weeks.

    March 28th - 29th
    April 4th - 5th
    April 18th - 19th

    All the above can work for, unless my wife has a barrel race she wants to go to.

    As of right now I think March 21-22 is best for GGaC and I. I am due to leave Texas April 1st.

    It is yet to be determined if I will remain in Oklahoma during April.

    Plus the 22nd of March is my birfday. o_O

    That time of year is pretty much a no-go for me to get off work during the week. Tax work, ya know. :(

    Fridays are no go for me as I would be driving down after work Friday. I'll have to see what weekend is picked and see if I can make it. Spring is my busiest time of the year at work. But I really do hope I get to make it to this shindig!

    I'll have to Go On the Web-side to see the Poll,..Im on the App Right Now. We are also trying to Help Bobski get the Shotgun shoot going, and one of the weekends posted coincides with that. We also want to try to get with you guys, esp. Since we saw all those great Pics from last time!! I know Vikingdad, and His Pal Vikingal, as well as MzGrn & I would enjoy getting out there. She has a Hand surgery coming up in 3 weeks, then 2 weeks recovery...
    Our other issue is transportation. If we fly, it's a PITA to Bring Guns even in Checked & Packed Baggage, and if so, would limit what we could bring. Plus the Fear of a Checked Item Getting LOST....Our initial plan was to "Rent"(short term lease) an RV and come with the Gatorious one on Board....Then of course we can "Shelp" a Lotta Stuff..we'll see...

    due to some medical issues that are still lingering, i probably won't be able to make it this time. as much fun as the last one was, and i would like to be a part of the upcoming one, i just don't see it happening right now. if things turn for the better, i am going to try and make this meet and greet if possible.

    Well guys, would later in the year be better?


    I thought the shoot and hoot was April 12th - 13th??? :confused:

    I set up the poll to exclude that date for that exact reason.

    Aaron,Why do you have Friday & Saturday for each date listed?
    Saturday & Sunday would be best for most people that work a normal work week.

    I will be off the weekend of April 5/6,but could work in any of them except the last weekend listed.

    Now the big issue! Where are we going to have it at?
    If Axxe isn't going to attend,I doubt if we would have access to the range he belongs to.

    Brain fart. :eek:

    Did not think of that for some reason.

    We'll find one if they won't let us use that range again.

    Anybody have a range they belong to that would possibly let us do this?

    If you want I could help out and find a range down here in the North Austin area.
    If you wanted to drive this far south.

    Many of the people who went last time were from the Dallas area, or from around Austin, so it's not horribly far. The last one was in Buffalo, which is about an hour East of Waco.

    If we can, I'd like to see if we can find one a little farther North than that. We'll definitely keep that as an option though. Thanks. :)

    I don't mind driving an extra hour or so, so it's fine with me. Are the ranges there just for handguns, or are there rifle ranges too?
