All Hands 4-13-10
« on: April 13, 2010, 08:51:20 PM »
Just checking in, been getting the gear ready for the weekend, looking forward to meeting some new folks, learning some, teaching some and I get to spend the weekend watching my 10yo son improve his shooting.

Should be a nice time in Gunnison, even if it rains...

I'm taking the wife to Gunnison this weekend.  Last years trip to Rahma (spelling) didn't go so well with the snow storm.  What's the weather supposed to be like this weekend in Gunnison?  Anyone else going?

Looks like some rain in Gunnison, afternoon showers and highs in the 50's.  Looks like we have 23 registered so far.  

See you then

We had our snow last year.

This year we are due beautiful weather.

Of course, it is Colorado so a one hour afternoon thunderstorm hardly counts.

Rain/Snow or Shine we are looking forward to a great shoot this weekend. I hear from those is Gunnison that things are looking good for weather this weekend but that it could also change the day of.

Either way, Double D and I are glad to be coming from CA to help out with this shoot;meet some great instructors, work with some awesome shooters and have a great weekend with Appleseeders.

Pete here...hoping for a relatively dry weekend! At least the ground at Fountain is mostly sand, makes for less mud! I just hope the road in stays passable!

Miss you guys!  And Rich is right, Colorado Sam, Newman, and I woke up to over 6" on the ground Saturday AM.  Three shoots on the same weekend?  Man how Colorado's grown since that first shoot on FranktownKid's ranch.  Now that I'm out here, Nebraska's going to follow the same blueprint we used in Colorado to build an outstanding Instructor Corps, too.  Have a great time this weekend!

Miss you too, Zombie.  Sounds like you're doing great whipping those Nebraskans into shape!  My family and I camped out on the range at Fountain all weekend, and with the fog and overcast, I have to say I've not seen darker nights in a long, long time.  We're definitely going to get out to NE sometime this summer, so save me a spot!!

Deep, deep thanks to all the CO folks who worked so hard to pull off a great weekend here!  I am admittedly new to this, compared to most, but the level of dedication, committment and heart I've seen from the people I've met here moves me beyond description.  It's an honor to work with you all.
